For the bulls, Bitcoin would need to break out from $11,000 levels to form a near-term bullish trend.

Ethereum led the way, rallying by 7.42%.
Binance Coin (+2.99%), Bitcoin Cash ABC (+3.42%), Bitcoin Cash SV (+2.60%), Litecoin (+2.09%), Ripple’s XRP (+2.43%), Stellar’s Lumen (+2.78%), Tezos (+3.03%), and Tron’s TRX (+2.41%) also saw solid gains.
Cardan’s ADA (+1.34%), EOS (+1.92%), and Monero’s XMR (+0.72%) trailed the pack.
Through the current week, the crypto total market cap rose to a Friday high $263.56bn from a Monday low $243.1. At the time of writing, the total market cap stood at $263.18bn.
Bitcoin’s dominance fell back from 64% levels in the week as the broader market found support. At the time of writing, Bitcoin’s dominance stood at 63.2%.

At the time of writing, Bitcoin was down by 0.62% to $9,124.0. A bearish start to the day saw Bitcoin fall from an early morning high $9,183.6 to a low $9,121.8.
Bitcoin left the major support and resistance levels untested early on.
Elsewhere, it was a mixed start to the day.
Bitcoin Cash ABC and Monero’s XMR bucked the trend early on, rising by 0.30% and by 0.64% respectively.
Tezos and Binance Coin led the way down early on, with losses of 1.89% and 1.55% respectively.
For the Bitcoin Day Ahead
Bitcoin would need to steer clear of sub-$9,130 levels to support a run at the first major resistance level at $9,249.77.
Support from the broader market would be needed, however, for Bitcoin to break out from Friday’s high $9,199.7.
Barring an extended crypto rally, resistance at $9,200 would likely limit any upside on the day once more.
In the event of a breakout, expect the 38.2% FIB of $9,260 and second major resistance level at $9,318.93 to come into play.
Failure to hold above $9,130 levels could see Bitcoin fall deeper into the red
A fall back through the morning low $9,121.8 would bring the first major support level at $9,061.37 into play.
Barring an extended crypto sell-off, however, Bitcoin should steer clear of the sub-$9,000 levels on the day.
