Bitcoin slipped by 0.04% on Saturday. Following on from a 0.73% fall from Friday, Bitcoin ended the day at $10,380.

A relatively choppy morning saw Bitcoin slide from an early morning high $10,395 to a mid-day intraday low $10,255.

In spite of the choppy start to the day, Bitcoin left the major support and resistance levels untested.

Finding support through the afternoon, Bitcoin rallied to a late intraday high $10,488. Falling short of the first major resistance level at $10,514.33, Bitcoin fell back to $10,300 levels and into the red.

For Bitcoin, the extended bullish trend remained intact. Bitcoin continued to hold above the 38.2% FIB of $9,734 having steered well clear of sub-$9,000 levels and the 62% FIB of $7,245.

The Rest of the Pack

Across the rest of the top 10 cryptos, it was a mixed bag.

Monero’s XMR joined Bitcoin in the red on the day, with a 0.99% loss.

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

EOS led the way, surging by 8.02% on Saturday. Ethereum (+3.96%), Bitcoin Cash SV (+2.8%), and Stellar’s Lumen (+2.73%) also saw solid gains on the day.

Ripple’s XRP (+2.34%), Litecoin (+2.2%), and Binance Coin (+0.77%) trailed the pack in spite of the gains on the day.

The relatively bullish start to the weekend left the majors mixed for the current week.

EOS led the way, rising by 6.63% Monday through Saturday. Ethereum and Litecoin were also in positive territory, with gains of 4.02% and 0.24% respectively.

It was red for the rest of the pack, however. Bitcoin SV and Binance Coin led the way down, with losses of 11.03% and 6.25% respectively.

Stellar’s Lumen also struggled in the week, falling by 3.3%. Losses elsewhere were modest, however. Monero’s XRM was down by 1.53%, with Bitcoin Cash ABC and Ripple’s XRP down by 0.39% and 0.11% respectively.

Bitcoin’s dominance eased back to 69% levels following a lackluster day on Saturday.

Through the current week, the total crypto market cap recovered from a Wednesday low $257.48bn to $266bn levels. In spite of the recovery, another crypto rally is needed to recover to $270bn levels seen at the start of the week.

At the time of writing, the total crypto market cap stood at $266.04bn.

This Morning

At the time of writing, Bitcoin was down by 0.19% to $10,360. A bearish start to the day saw Bitcoin fall from an early morning high $10,403 to a low $10,337.

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

Elsewhere, Monero’s XMR (-1.65%), Stellar’s Lumen (-0.7%), Binance Coin (-0.03%), and Bitcoin Cash SV (-0.43%) also saw red.

Bitcoin Cash ABC led the way in the early hours, up by 0.98% at the time of writing.

For the Bitcoin Day Ahead

Bitcoin would need to move through to $10,360 levels to support a run at the first major resistance level at $10,469.

Support from the broader market would be needed, however, to break out from the morning low $10,403.

Barring a Bitcoin breakout later in the day, Saturday’s high $10,451 and first major resistance level would likely pin any upside.

Failure to move through to $10,360 levels could see Bitcoin spend a 3rd consecutive day in the red.

A fall through to $10,320 levels would bring the first major support level at $10,273 into play before any recovery.

Barring a crypto meltdown, Bitcoin should steer clear of sub-$10,200 support levels on the day.
