The Crypto Daily – Movers and Shakers – February 6th, 2021
Bitcoin, BTC to USD, rose by 3.56% on Friday. Reversing a 1.90% decline from Thursday, Bitcoin ended the day at $38,260.0.
A mixed start to the day saw Bitcoin fall to an early morning intraday low $36,571,6 before making a move.
Steering clear of the first major support level at $35,866, Bitcoin rallied to an early afternoon intraday high $38,366.0.
Bitcoin broke through the first major resistance level at $38,394 before a pullback to $37,200 levels.
Finding late support, Bitcoin broke back through to $38,200 levels to deliver the upside on the day.
The near-term bullish trend remained intact, in spite of the recent pullback to sub-$40,000. For the bears, Bitcoin would need to slide through the 62% FIB of $18,504 to form a near-term bearish trend.

For the Bitcoin Day Ahead
Bitcoin would need to avoid a fall through the pivot level at $37,700 to bring the first major resistance level at $38,828 back into play.
Support from the broader market would be needed for Bitcoin to break out from the morning high $38,801.0.
Barring an extended crypto rally, the first major resistance level and resistance at $39,000 would likely cap any upside.
In the event of an extended crypto rally, Bitcoin could test the second major resistance level at $39,494 and resistance at $40,000.
Failure to avoid a fall through the $37,700 pivot would bring the first major support level at $37,034 into play.
Barring an extended crypto sell-off, Bitcoin should steer clear of sub-$36,000 levels. The second major support level sits at $35,906.
