The near-term bullish trend remained intact, supported by the Sunday’s new swing hi $49,659.0. For the bears, Bitcoin would need to slide through the 62% FIB of $21,442 to form a near-term bearish trend.

Cardano’s ADA and Polkadot rose by 1.98% and by 5.06% respectively to buck the trend on the day.
