Bitcoin and Litecoin over dollar banknotes.

Bitcoin, BTC to USD, slipped by 0.40% on Saturday. Following on from 1.26% decline on Friday, Bitcoin ended the day at $47,177.0.

A bullish start to the day saw Bitcoin rise to an early morning intraday high $48,209.0 before hitting reverse.

Falling short of the first major resistance level at $48,944, Bitcoin fell to a late morning intraday low $46,255.0.

Steering clear of the first major support level at $45,851, Bitcoin revisited $47,300 levels before falling back into the red.

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.

The Rest of the Pack

Across the rest of the majors, it was a mixed day on Saturday.

Bitcoin Cash SV and Litecoin jumped by 12.77% and by 14.92% respectively to lead the way, with Chainlink rallying by 11.50%.

Crypto.com Coin (+5.26%) and Ripple’s XRP (+3.91%) also found support on the day.

It was a bearish day for the rest, however.

Binance Coin (-2.59%), Cardano’s ADA (-1.27%), Ethereum (-1.45%), and Polkadot (-2.04%) joined Bitcoin in the red.

In the current week, the crypto total market cap fell to a Monday low $1,145.36bn before surging to a Friday high $1,510.61bn. At the time of writing, the total market cap stood at $1,453.99bn.

Bitcoin’s dominance jumped to a Tuesday high 64.76% before sliding to a Saturday low 59.76%. At the time of writing, Bitcoin’s dominance stood at 60.42%.


This Morning

At the time of writing, Bitcoin was.

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

Elsewhere, it was another mixed start to the day.

Binance Coin (-0.71%), Cardano’s ADA (-0.20%), Chainlink (-0.03%), Ethereum (-0.42%), and Litecoin (-1.01%) joined Bitcoin in the red early on.

It was a bullish start for the rest of the majors, however.

At the time of writing, Crypto.com Coin was up by 2.44% to lead the way.

For the Bitcoin Day Ahead

Bitcoin would need to move back through the pivot level at $47,214 to bring the first major resistance level at $48,172 into play.

Support from the broader market would be needed for Bitcoin to break back through to $48,000 levels.

Barring an extended crypto rally, the first major resistance level and Saturday’s high $48,209.0 would likely cap any upside.

In the event of an extended crypto rally, Bitcoin could test resistance at $50,000 before any pullback. The second major resistance level sits at $49,168.

Failure to move back through the $47,214 pivot would bring the first major support level at $46,218 into play.

Barring an extended crypto sell-off, however, Bitcoin should steer clear of the second major support level at $45,260.
