A mixed start to the day saw Bitcoin fall to an early morning intraday low of $ 46,725.0 before taking a step.
Away from the first major support level at $ 46,297, Bitcoin hit an intraday high of $ 48,244.0 early in the afternoon.
Below the first major resistance level at $ 48,319, Bitcoin fell back to below $ 47,000 before finding late support.
