Bitcoin broke through the first major resistance level at $42,380 and the second major resistance level at $45,924.

Falling short of $50,000 levels, however, Bitcoin ease back to end the week at sub-$49,000 levels.

4 days in the green that included a 19.59% rally on Monday delivered the upside for the week.

For the week ahead

Bitcoin would need to avoid a fall through the $45,397 pivot to support a run the first major resistance level at $52,846.

Support from the broader market would be needed for Bitcoin to break out from 14th January’s swing hi $49,659.0.

Barring an extended crypto rally, the first major resistance level would likely cap any upside.

In the event of an extended breakout, Bitcoin could test resistance at $55,000 before any pullback. The second major resistance level sits at $57,109.

Failure to avoid a fall through the $45,397 pivot would bring the first major support level at $41,134 into play.
