Bitcoin fell by 1.08% on Tuesday. Partially reversing a 2.35% gain from Monday, Bitcoin ended the day at $9,339.7.
A bullish start to the day saw Bitcoin rise to an early morning intraday high $9,504.1 before hitting reverse.
Falling short of the first major resistance level at $9,672.67, Bitcoin fell to a late morning intraday low $9,185.1.
Steering clear of the first major support level at $9,179.67, Bitcoin recovered to $9,400 levels before a late pullback into the red.
For the bulls, the extended bullish trend remained intact in spite of failing to break back through the 38.2% FIB of $9,734. Bitcoin has continued to hold above the 62% FIB of 7,245.
The Rest of the Pack
Across the rest of the top 10 cryptos, it was a bullish day for the majors on Tuesday.
EOS and Bitcoin Cash SV led the way, rallying by 5.03% and by 4.94% respectively.
Stellar’s Lumen (+2.99%) and Litecoin (+2.85%) also saw solid gains on the day.
Binance Coin (+0.15%), Bitcoin Cash ABC (+0.88%), Ethereum (+1.41%), Ripple’s XRP (0.37%) saw more modest gains on the day.
On Tuesday, the total crypto market cap fell from a high $253.29bn to a low $248.63bn before recovering. At the time of writing, the total market cap stood at $251.41bn.
Bitcoin’s dominance fell back to 66% levels on the day, following Tuesday’s trend-bucking loss, while trading volumes hit $98bn levels before easing back.
At the time of writing, Bitcoin was up by just 0.01% to $9,340.9. A relatively range-bound start to the day saw Bitcoin rise from an early morning low $9,332.3 to a high $9,354.5.
Bitcoin left the major support and resistance levels untested early on.
Elsewhere, Bitcoin Cash ABC (+0.08%), Bitcoin Cash SV (+0.24%), and EOS (+0.06%) also found early support.
It was a bearish start to the day for the rest of the majors, however. Stellar’s Lumen led the way down, falling by 1.02%.
Binance Coin (-0.61%), Ethereum (-0.38%), Litecoin (-0.36%), Ripple’s XRP (-0.42%) and Tron’s TRX (-0.38%) saw modest losses.
For the Bitcoin Day Ahead
Bitcoin would need to move back through to $9,345 levels to support a run at the first major resistance level at $9,500.83.
Support from the broader market would be needed, however for Bitcoin to break back through to $9,400 levels.
Barring a broad-based crypto rally, the first major resistance level and Tuesday’s high $9,504.1 would likely limit any upside.
Failure to move through to $9,345 levels could see Bitcoin hit reverse.
A fall through to sub-$9,300 levels would bring the first major support level at $9,181.83 into play.
In the event of an extended sell-off, we would expect the second major support level at $9,023.97 to limit any downside on the day.
