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 rise to an early morning intraday high $52,888.0 before hitting reverse.

Falling short of the first major resistance level at $53,262, Bitcoin tumbled to a mid-afternoon intraday low $43,220.0.

Bitcoin fell through the day’s major support levels and also through the 23.6% FIB of $50,473.

Finding late support, Bitcoin briefly revisited $47,000 levels before easing back.

The near-term bullish trend remained intact, in spite of the latest return to $43,000 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 bearish day on Tuesday

Ripple’s XRP slumped by 19.26% to lead the way down.

Bitcoin Cash SV (-18.26%), Chainlink (-18.90%), and Litecoin (-18.73%) weren’t far behind.

Binance Coin (-15.66%), Cardano’s ADA (-11.31%), Crypto.com Coin (-15.80%), Ethereum (-12.52%), and Polkadot (-8.63%) were also in the deep red.

Early in the week, the crypto total market rose to a Tuesday high $2,437bn before tumbling to a Tuesday low $1,835bn. At the time of writing, the total market cap stood at $2,087bn.

Bitcoin’s dominance fell to a Tuesday low 40.85% before rising to a Tuesday high 43.65%. At the time of writing, Bitcoin’s dominance stood at 42.09%.


This Morning

At the time of writing, Bitcoin was down by 0.46% to $46,633.0. A mixed start to the day saw Bitcoin rise to an early morning high $46,968.0 before falling to a low $46,402.0

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

Elsewhere, it was a mixed start to the day.

Crypto.com Coin bucked the early trend, rising by 1.02%.

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

At the time of writing, Bitcoin Cash SV was down by 2.20% to lead the way down.

For the Bitcoin Day Ahead

Bitcoin would need to move the $47,652 pivot to bring the first major resistance level at $52,085 into play.

Support from the broader market would be needed for Bitcoin to break out from the 23.6% FIB of $50,473.

Barring a broad-based crypto rally, the 23.6% FIB would likely leave Bitcoin short of the first major resistance level.

In the event of a broad-based crypto rebound, Bitcoin could test resistance at $55,000 before any pullback. The second major resistance level sits at $57,320.

Failure to move through the $47,652 pivot would bring the first major support level at $42,417 into play.

Barring another extended sell-off on the day, Bitcoin should steer clear of the 38.2% FIB of $41,592. The second major support level sits at $37,984.
