Bitcoin rose by 3.2% on Sunday. Following on from a 6.82% rally on Saturday, Bitcoin ended the day at $9,571.8.
A bearish start to the day saw Bitcoin fall to an early morning intraday low $9,121.2 before making a move.
Steering clear of the first major support level at $8,461.87, Bitcoin rallied to a late afternoon intraday high $9,823.9.
While falling short of the first major resistance level at $10,279.97, Bitcoin broke through the 38.2% FIB of $9,734.
A bearish end to the day, however, left Bitcoin at $9,500 levels to limit the upside on the day.
For the week, a 3rd consecutive day in the green gave Bitcoin a 15.9% gain, Monday through Sunday.
For the bulls, the extended bullish trend remained intact in spite of failing to break out from 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 Sunday.
EOS led the way, rallying by 6.23%, with Litecoin rising by 5.31%.
Stellar’s Lumen (+3.18%), Bitcoin Cash ABC (+2.45%), and Ethereum (+2.44%) also saw solid gains.
Binance Coin (+1.89%), Ripple’s XRP (+1.59%), and Bitcoin Cash SV (+0.06%) saw more modest gains on the day.

Through the week, the total crypto market cap rose from a Wednesday low $202.69bn to a Saturday high $262.07bn. At the time of writing, the total market cap stood at $257.28bn.
Bitcoin’s dominance jumped back to 68% levels off the back of a 16.5% rally on Friday and solid gains through the weekend.
At the time of writing, Bitcoin was up by 1.77% to $9,741.0. A bullish start to the day saw Bitcoin rise from an early morning low $9,566.6 to a high $9,948.9 before easing back.
Bitcoin broke through the 38.2% FIB of $9,734 and the first major resistance level at $9,890.07 early on.

For the Bitcoin Day Ahead
For the day ahead, Bitcoin would need to hold above the 38.2% FIB to support another run at the first major resistance level at $9,890.07.
Support from the broader market would be needed, however, for Bitcoin to break back through to $10,000 levels.
Barring an extended rally through the day, Bitcoin would likely come up short of the second major resistance level at $10,208.33.
Failure to hold above the 38.2% FIB of $9,734 could see Bitcoin hit reverse.
A fall through to sub-$9,500 levels would bring the first major support level at $9,187.37 into play before any recovery.
Barring a crypto meltdown, Bitcoin should steer well clear of sub-$9,000 levels on the day.
