Steering clear of the first major support level at $29,055, Bitcoin rallied to a late morning current day high $30,970.8.

Bitcoin broke through the first major resistance level at $30,821 before easing back to sub-$30,800 levels.

The Rest of the Pack

It has also been a bullish morning for the broader crypto market.

Through the morning, Cardano’s ADA was up by 6.82% to lead the way.

Binance Coin (+5.51%), Chainlink (+5.14%), Ethereum (+4.32%), and Litecoin (+4.18%) also found strong support.

Crypto.com Coin (+2.93%), Polkadot (+1.63%), and Ripple’s XRP (+2.96%) trailed the front runners, however.

Through the early hours, the crypto total market fell to an early morning low $1,180bn before rising to a high $1,248bn. At the time of writing, the total market cap stood at $1,237bn.

Bitcoin’s dominance rose to an early high 46.92% before falling to a low 46.52%. At the time of writing, Bitcoin’s dominance stood at 46.64%.


For the Afternoon Ahead

Bitcoin would need to break back through the first major resistance level at $30,821 to bring the second major resistance level at $31,833 into play.

Support from the broader market would be needed, however, for Bitcoin to break out from $31,500 levels.

Barring an extended crypto rally, resistance at $31,500 would likely leave Bitcoin short of the second major resistance level.

In the event of an extended crypto rally, Bitcoin could test resistance at $32,000 levels. The third major resistance level sits at $33,599.

A fall back through the $30,067 pivot would bring the first major support level at $29,055 into play.

Barring another extended sell-off through the afternoon, however, Bitcoin should steer clear of sub-$29,000 support levels.

The second major support level sits at $28,301.

Looking beyond the support and resistance levels, we saw the 50 EMA narrow on the 100 and 200 EMAs through the mid-morning, supporting the Bitcoin rebound.

We also saw the 100 EMA flatten on the 200 EMA adding further support to Bitcoin and the crypto bulls.

A further narrowing of the 50 EMA on the 100 EMA and the 200 EMA this afternoon would bring $31,500 levels into play.

Key going into the afternoon will be for Bitcoin to break back through the first major resistance level at $30,821.

Following 2 days of heavy losses, Bitcoin would need to avoid a fall back through the day’s $30,067 pivot else face a sharp sell-off…
