This is the technical analysis for Bitcoin. We’ll look at yesterday’s moves and today’s support, resistance, pivot levels and Fibonacci levels. Additionally, we’ll take a look at the broader market movements the day before and all of the major market drivers.
Previous Bitcoin Movements
Bitcoin, from BTC to USD, rose 0.26% on Tuesday. After gaining 2.10% on Monday, Bitcoin ended the day at $ 50,634.
After a relatively bullish morning, Bitcoin hit an intraday high of $ 51,970 by mid-afternoon before reversing. Hitting the first major resistance level at $ 51,945, Bitcoin slipped to an intraday low of $ 50,095.
Well away from the first major support level at $ 48,124, however, Bitcoin found late support to end the day at $ 50,600.
The short-term uptrend remained intact, despite the latest pullback to $ 41,000. For bears, Bitcoin would need a sustained decline through the 62% FIB of $ 28,814 to form a near-term bearish trend.
The rest of the pack
In the rest of the majors, the day was mixed on Tuesday.
Crypto.com Coin jumped 19.90% to lead the way, with Bitcoin Cash SV (5.95%), Chainlink (+ 6.18%) and Polkadot (+ 8.12%) finding strong support.
Litecoin (+ 0.24%) also joined Bitcoin in positive territory.
It was, however, a bearish day for the rest of the majors.
Cardano’s ADA fell 3.02% to lead the way on the downside.
Binance Coin (-1.61%), Ethereum (-1.01%) and Ripple’s XRP (-1.26%) also struggled.
At the start of the week, the total crypto market fell to a low of $ 2.124 billion on Monday before hitting a high of $ 2.416 billion on Tuesday night. At the time of writing, the total market cap was $ 2.30 billion.

Bitcoin left major support and resistance levels untested early on.
Elsewhere, it was a bearish start to the day.
At the time of writing, Crypto.com Coin was down 6.63% to lead the way.
For Bitcoin Day Ahead
Bitcoin is expected to break through the $ 50,900 pivot to bring into play the first major resistance level at $ 51,704. However, broad market support would be needed for Bitcoin to break out of the $ 51,500 levels.
Barring a prolonged crypto rally, the first major resistance level and Tuesday’s high of $ 51,970 would likely cap the upside.
In the event of a prolonged rally, Bitcoin could test 23.6% FIB of $ 53,628 before slowing down. The second major resistance level is located at $ 52,775.
Failure to break through the $ 50,900 pivot would bring into play the first major support level at $ 49,829. Unless another extended sell off that day, Bitcoin is expected to avoid levels below $ 49,000. The second major support level at $ 49,025.
