Bitcoin’s Day Ahead
BTC has to overpower the pivot at $42,476 to test the initial resistance standing at $43,225. Broader market support is essential for the asset to rally past Saturday’s peak of $42,986. Without an overall market rally, the closest resistance might prevent BTC upsurges.
If the coming session records positive actions, BTC might rise to test the resistance around the $45,000 mark before retracing. Breaching the pivot at $42,476 will have BTC hitting the initial support at $41,966, then 38.2% Fibonacci of $41,592.
