For the Bitcoin Day Ahead
Bitcoin would need to move through the $45,282 pivot to bring the first major resistance level at $45,815 into play.
Support from the broader market would be needed for Bitcoin to break out from $45,500 levels.
Barring a broad-based crypto rally, the first major resistance level and Saturday’s high $45,990.0 would likely cap the upside.
In the event of a broad-based crypto rally, Bitcoin could test resistance at $47,000 before any pullback. The second major resistance level sits at $46,522.
Failure to move through the $45,282 pivot would bring the first major support level at $44,575 into play.
Barring an extended sell-off on the day, Bitcoin should steer clear of sub-$44,000. The second major support level at $44,042 should limit the downside.
