The Crypto Daily – Movers and Shakers – February 13th, 2021It’s a mixed start to the day for the majors. A Bitcoin move through to $48,500 levels should support the pack.
Bitcoin, BTC to USD, fell by 1.26% on Friday. Partially reversing a 7.07% rally from Thursday, Bitcoin ended the day at $47,397.0.
A bullish start to the day saw Bitcoin rise to an early morning intraday high and a new swing hi $48,945.0 before hitting reverse.

The near-term bullish trend remained intact, supported by the Friday’s new swing hi $48,945.0. For the bears, Bitcoin would need to slide through the 62% FIB of $21,169 to form a near-term bearish trend.

For the Bitcoin Day Ahead
Bitcoin would need to avoid a fall back through the pivot level at $47,398 to bring the first major resistance level at $48,944 into play.
Support from the broader market would be needed for Bitcoin to break out from $48,500 levels.
Barring an extended crypto rally, the first major resistance level and Friday’s swing hi $48,945.0 would likely cap any upside.
In the event of an extended crypto rally, Bitcoin could test the second major resistance level at $50,491.
Failure to avoid a fall back through the $47,398 pivot would bring the first major support level at $45,851 into play.
Barring an extended crypto sell-off, however, Bitcoin should steer clear of sub-$45,000 levels. The second major support level sits at $44,305.
