Bitcoin, BTC to USD, slid by 6.07% on Friday. Reversing a 4.37% gain from Thursday, Bitcoin ended the day at $36,844.0.
A mixed start to the day saw Bitcoin rise to an early morning high $39,275.0 before hitting reverse.

The extended sell-off saw Bitcoin fall through the first major support level at $37,776 and the second major support level at $36,326.

The near-term bullish trend remained intact supported by the latest move back through to $39,000 levels. For the bears, Bitcoin would need a sustained fall through the 62% FIB of $27,237 to form a near-term bearish trend.

Ethereum (-5.81%) and Polkadot (-1.23%) saw relatively modest losses on the day.

For the Bitcoin Day Ahead
Bitcoin would need to avoid a fall back through the $37,235 pivot to bring the first major resistance level at $38,884 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 and Friday’s high $39,275.0 would likely cap any upside.
In the event of an extended crypto rally, Bitcoin could test resistance at the 38.2% FIB of $41,592. The second major resistance level sits at $40,924.
A fall back through the $37,235 pivot would bring the first major support level at $35,195 into play.
Barring another extended sell-off on the day, Bitcoin should steer clear of the second major support level at $33,546.
