A mixed start to the day saw Bitcoin fall to an early morning intraday low $9,388.0 before making a move.
Steering clear of the first major support level at $9,056.3, Bitcoin rose to an early afternoon intraday high $9,590.0.

The near-term bullish trend remained intact in spite of last week’s sell-off, with Bitcoin holding well above the 23.6% FIB of $8,900.
For the bears, Bitcoin would need to slide through the 62% FIB of $6,400 to form a near-term bearish trend.
The Rest of the Pack
Across the rest of the majors, it was a mixed day on Tuesday.
Ripple’s XRP and Tezos fell by 0.08% and by 0.55% respectively to buck the trend on the day.
It was a bullish day for the rest of the majors, however.
Bitcoin Cash SV (+2.11%), Ethereum (+1.90%), and Monero’s XMR (+2.07%) led the way.
Binance Coin (+0.24%), Bitcoin Cash ABC (+0.67%), Cardano’s ADA (+1.12%), EOS (+0.83%), Litecoin (+0.23%), Stellar’s Lumen (+1.24%), and Tron’s TRX (+0.06%) also saw green.

Bitcoin left the major support and resistance levels untested early on.
Elsewhere, it was also a bearish start to the day. At the time of writing, Cardano’s ADA was down by 2.01% to lead the way down.
For the Bitcoin Day Ahead
Bitcoin would need to move back through to $9,500 levels to bring the first major resistance level at $9,620.27 into play.
Support from the broader market would be needed, however, for Bitcoin to break out from Tuesday’s high $9,590.0.
Barring a broad-based crypto rally, the first major resistance level and Tuesday’s high would likely cap any upside.
In the event of a crypto breakout, Bitcoin could eye $9,700 levels and the second major resistance level at $9,706.13.
Failure to move back through the $9,500 pivot level could see Bitcoin reverse Tuesday’s gain.
A fall back through the morning low $9,454.1 would bring the first major support level at $9,418.27. into play.
Barring another extended crypto sell-off, however, Bitcoin should steer clear of the second major support level at $9,302.13.
