Bitcoin slid by 4.68% on Thursday. Following on from a 2.74% fall on Wednesday, Bitcoin ended the day at $9,057.1.

A bullish start to the day saw Bitcoin rise to an early morning intraday high $9,564.1 before hitting reverse.

Falling short of the first major resistance level at $9,796.13, Bitcoin slid to a late intraday low $8,815.3.

Bitcoin slid through the first major support level at $9,254.43 and second major support level at $9,006.87 before finding support.

Late in the day, Bitcoin broke back through the second major support level to $9,150 levels before easing back.

In spite of the late pullback saw Bitcoin steered clear of the second major support level.

The near-term bearish trend, formed at late June 2019’s swing hi $13,764.0, remained firmly intact, reaffirmed by the March swing lo $4,000.

For the bulls, Bitcoin would need to break out from the 62% FIB of $10,034 to form a near-term bullish trend.

The Rest of the Pack

Across the rest of the majors, it was a bearish day on Thursday.

Cardano’s ADA slid by 8.18% to lead the way down.

Bitcoin Cash ABC (-5.01%), EOS (-5.18%), Ethereum (-5.40%), Stellar’s Lumen (-5.98%), Tezos (-6.30%), and Tron’s TRX (-5.35%) also saw particularly heavy losses.

Binance Coin (-4.80%), Litecoin (-3.46%), Monero’s XMR (-4.70%), and Ripple’s XRP (-3.51%) weren’t far behind.

Bitcoin Cash SV saw a relatively modest 1.93% decline to

At the time of writing, Bitcoin was down by 0.59% to $9,004.0. A bearish start to the day saw Bitcoin fall from an early morning high $9,060.2 to a low $8,975.0

Bitcoin left the major support and resistance levels untested early on.

Elsewhere, it was also a bearish start to the day.

Bitcoin Cash SV and Cardano’s ADA led the way down, with losses of 1.26% and 1.04% respectively.

For the Bitcoin Day Ahead

Bitcoin would need to move back through to $9,150 levels to bring the first major resistance level at $9,475.7 into play.

Support from the broader market would be needed, however, for Bitcoin to break out from the morning high $9,060.2.

Barring an extended crypto rebound, the first major resistance level would likely limit any upside.

In the event of a broad-based crypto rally, resistance at $9,500 would likely leave Bitcoin short of the second major resistance level at $9,894.3.

Failure to move back through to $9,150 levels could see Bitcoin spend a 3rd consecutive day in the red.

A fall back through Thursday’s low $8,815.3 would bring the first major support level at $8,726.9 into play.

Barring another extended crypto sell-off, however, Bitcoin should steer clear of the second major support level at $8,396.7.
