For the Bitcoin Day Ahead

Support from the broader market would be needed for Bitcoin to break back through to $49,000 levels.
Barring an extended crypto rally, the first major resistance level and the 23.6% FIB of $50,473 would likely cap any upside.
In the event of an extended crypto rally, Bitcoin could test the second major resistance level at $52,678.
Failure to move through the pivot at $46,829 would bring the first major support level at $43,789 into play.
Barring another extended sell-off on the day, Bitcoin should steer clear of the second major support level at $40,980. The 38.2% FIB of $41,592 should limit the downside.
