Steering clear of the first major support level at $34,058, Bitcoin rose to a late morning high $38,337.0.

Falling short of the first major resistance level at $39,088, however, Bitcoin fell back to sub-$37,500 levels before finding support.

The Rest of the Pack

It’s been a mixed morning for the broader crypto market.

Through the morning, Crypto.com Coin and Polkadot were up by 0.17% and by 1.23% respectively to join Bitcoin in the green.

It’s been a bearish morning for the rest, however.

At the time of writing, Chainlink was down by 5.36% to lead the way down.

Binance Coin (-4.17%), Cardano’s ADA (-4.39%), and  Ripple’s XRP (-4.70%) also struggled.

Bitcoin Cash SV (-0.57%), Ethereum (-2.84%), and Litecoin (-2.51%) saw relatively modest losses through the morning, however.

Through the early hours, the crypto total market fell to a mid-morning low $1,552bn before rising to a high $1,624bn. At the time of writing, the total market cap stood at $1,589bn.

Bitcoin’s dominance fell to an early low 43.45% before rising to a high 44.32%. At the time of writing, Bitcoin’s dominance stood at 44.28%.


For the Day Ahead

Bitcoin would need to avoid a fall back through to the early low $36,250 and the $35,779 pivot to bring the first major resistance level at $39,088 back into play.

Support from the broader market would be needed, however, for Bitcoin to break out from this morning’s high $38,337.0.

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

In the event of an extended rally, Bitcoin could test resistance at the 38.2% FIB of $41,592 before any pullback. The second major resistance level sits at $40,809.

A fall back through to the morning low and the $35,779 pivot would bring the first major support level at $34,058 into play.

Barring an extended sell-off through the afternoon, however, Bitcoin should steer clear of sub-$34,000 levels.

The second major support level sits at $30,749.

Looking beyond the support and resistance levels, we saw a bullish cross this morning, with the 50 EMA crossing through the 100 EMA. More significantly, however, was a the 50 EMA’s convergence on the 200 EMA. A bullish cross would support a run at $40,000 levels. Failure for the 50 EMA to cross through the 200, however, would bring sub-$35,000 levels into play.
