Ripple’s XRP and Polkadot slid by 5.27% and by 5.47% respectively to lead the way down.

For the Bitcoin Day Ahead
Bitcoin would need to avoid a fall through the pivot level at $48,245 to bring the first major resistance level at $50,074 into play.
Support from the broader market would be needed for Bitcoin to break back through to $50,000 levels.
Barring an extended crypto rally, the first major resistance level would likely cap any upside.
In the event of an extended crypto rally, Bitcoin could test resistance at $52,000 before any pullback. The second major resistance level sits at $51,317.
Failure to avoid a fall through the $48,245 pivot would bring the first major support level at $47,002 into play.
Barring an extended sell-off on the day, Bitcoin should steer clear of the 23.6% FIB of $45,501 and the second major support level at $45,173.
