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 $35,929.0 before making a move.

Steering clear of the first major support level at $35,540, Bitcoin rose to a late morning intraday high $37,650.0.

Falling short of the first major resistance level at $38,061, Bitcoin fell to $36,500 levels before finding support.

A late move back through to $37,300 levels delivered the upside on the day.

The near-term bullish trend remained intact supported by the latest move back through to $37,000 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 Friday.

Bitcoin Cash SV rose by 3.76% to buck the broader trend and join Bitcoin in the green.

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

Polkadot slid by 9.32% to lead the way down, with Cardano’s ADA (-6.22%) and Chainlink (-7.01%) also seeing heavy losses.

Binance Coin (-1.80%), Crypto.com Coin (-0.76%), Ethereum (-4.71%), Litecoin (-3.23%), and Ripple’s XRP (-2.85%) saw relatively modest losses.

In the current week, the crypto total market rose to a Monday high $1,670bn before falling to a Tuesday low $1,374bn. At the time of writing, the total market cap stood at $1,519bn.

Bitcoin’s dominance fell to a Monday low 41.28% before rising to a Friday high 45.64%. At the time of writing, Bitcoin’s dominance stood at 45.74%.


This Morning

At the time of writing, Bitcoin was down by 0.71% to $37,072.0. A mixed start to the day saw Bitcoin rise to an early morning high $37,461.3 before falling to a low $37,040.0.

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

Elsewhere, it was a bearish start to the day.

At the time of writing, Chainlink was down by 2.04% to lead the way down.

For the Bitcoin Day Ahead

Bitcoin would need to avoid the $36,972 pivot to bring the first major resistance level at $38,016 into play.

Support from the broader market would be needed for Bitcoin to break back through to $38,000 levels.

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 $40,000 before any pullback. The second major resistance level sits at $38,693.

A fall through the $36,972 pivot would bring the first major support level at $36,295 into play.

Barring an extended sell-off on the day, Bitcoin should steer clear of the second major support level at $35,251.
