For the Bitcoin Day Ahead
Bitcoin would need to move through the $45,434 pivot to bring the first major resistance level at $46,428 into play.
Support from the broader market would be needed for Bitcoin to break back through to $46,000 levels.
Barring a broad-based crypto rally, the first major resistance level and Tuesday’s high $47,167 would likely cap any upside.
In the event of an extended crypto rally, Bitcoin could test resistance at $49,000 levels before any pullback. The second major resistance level sits at $48,160.
Failure to move through the $45,434 pivot would bring the first major support level at $43,702 into play.
Barring an extended sell-off on the day, Bitcoin should steer clear of the second major support level at $42,708.
