CFDs are complex instruments and come with a high risk of losing money rapidly due to leverage. The vast majority of retail investor accounts lose money when trading CFDs. You should consider whether you understand how CFDs work and whether you can afford to take the high risk of losing your money.

A mixed start to the day saw Bitcoin fall to an early morning intraday low $39,272.0 before making a move.

Steering clear of the first major support level at $38,913, Bitcoin rose to a late morning intraday high $40,623.0.

Falling short the first major resistance level at $41,010, however, Bitcoin fell back to sub-$39,500 levels before finding support. A late move back through to $40,000 reversed losses from the day.

The near-term bullish trend remained intact, supported by the latest return to $40,000 levels. For the bears, Bitcoin would need a sustained fall through the 62% FIB of $27,237 to form a near-term bearish trend.

The Rest of the Pack

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

Cardano’s ADA slipped by 0.15% to buck the trend.

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

Polkadot rallied by 4.94% to lead the way, with Crypto.com Coin (+2.33%), Ethereum (+3.59%), and Ripple’s XRP (+2.39%) also finding strong support.

Binance Coin (+1.00%), Bitcoin Cash SV (+0.41%), Chainlink (+1.36%), and Litecoin (+0.74%) saw modest gains, however.

In the current the week, the crypto total market fell to a Monday low $1,379bn before rising to a Monday high $1,606bn. At the time of writing, the total market cap stood at $1,553bn.

Bitcoin’s dominance fell to a Monday low 47.07% before jumping to a Wednesday high 49.16%. At the time of writing, Bitcoin’s dominance stood at 48.44%.

This Morning

At the time of writing, Bitcoin was up by 0.09% to $40,071.0. A mixed start to the day saw Bitcoin fall to an early morning low $39,779.0 before rising to a high $40,122.0.

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

Elsewhere, it was a mixed start to the day.

Binance Coin (-0.15%), Chainlink (-0.06%), Polkadot (-0.50%), and Ripple’s XRP (-0.33%) saw early red.

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

At the time of writing, Crypto.com Coin was up by 0.81% to lead the way.

For the Bitcoin Day Ahead

Bitcoin would need to avoid a fall back through the $39,977 pivot to bring the first major resistance level at $40,682 into play.

Support from the broader market would be needed for Bitcoin to break out from Thursday’s high $40,623.0.

Barring a broad-based crypto rally, the first major resistance level would likely cap any upside.

In the event of another extended crypto rally, Bitcoin could test resistance at the 38.2% FIB of $41,592 before any pullback. The second major resistance level sits at $41,328.

Failure to avoid a fall back through the $39,977 pivot would bring the first major support level at $39,331 into play.

Barring an extended sell-off on the day, Bitcoin should steer clear of the second major support level at $38,626.
