The near-term bullish trend remained intact in spite of the latest reversal. For the bears, Bitcoin would need to slide through the 62% FIB of $27,237 to form a near-term bearish trend.

The Rest of the Pack

Across the rest of the majors, it was a mixed day on Wednesday.

Crypto.com Coin, (+5.19%), Ethereum (+1.07%), and Polkadot (+0.06%) bucked the trend on the day.

It was a bearish day for the rest of the majors.

Binance Coin (-7.38%), Chainlink (-6.76%), and Ripple’s XRP (-6.95%) led the way down.

Bitcoin Cash SV (-1.22%), Cardano’s ADA (-5.11%), and Litecoin (-1.18%) also struggled, however.

In the current week, the crypto total market rose to a Monday high $2,100bn before sliding to a Tuesday low $1,839bn. At the time of writing, the total market cap stood at $1,954bn.

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

Elsewhere, it was a mixed start to the day.

Crypto.com Coin (-4.83%) and Cardano’s ADA (-0.12%) saw red to buck the trend early on.

It was a bullish start for the rest of the majors, however.

At the time of writing, Ethereum was up by 1.14% to lead the way.

For the Bitcoin Day Ahead

Bitcoin would need to move through the pivot level at $54,726 to bring the first major resistance level at $55,844 into play.

Support from the broader market would be needed for Bitcoin to break out from $55,500 levels.

Barring an extended crypto rally, the first major resistance level and resistance at $56,000 would likely cap any upside.

In the event of an extended crypto rally, Bitcoin could test resistance at $60,000 before any pullback. The second major resistance level sits at $57,907.

Failure to move through the $54,726 pivot would bring the first major support level at $52,663 into play.

Barring another extended sell-off on the day, Bitcoin should steer clear of sub-$50,000 levels. The second major support level at $51,545 should limit the downside.
