For Bitcoin Day Ahead
Bitcoin would need to break through the $ 41,350 38.2% FIB pivot of $ 41,592 to bring into play the first major resistance level at $ 43,023.
Broad market support would be needed for Bitcoin to return to levels of $ 43,000.
Barring a full-scale crypto rally, the first major resistance level and Tuesday’s high of $ 43,625.0 would likely cap the upside.
In the event of a widespread crypto rebound, Bitcoin could test resistance at levels of $ 45,000 before any pullback. The second major resistance level is located at $ 45,297.
Failure to break through the $ 41,350 pivot and 38.2% FIB of $ 41,592 would bring into play the first major support level at $ 39,076.
Unless another extended sell off that day, Bitcoin is expected to avoid the second major support level at $ 37,403.
