Bitcoin rose by 1.94% on Wednesday. Reversing a 1.00% loss from Tuesday, Bitcoin ended the day at $9,447.0.
It was a mixed start to the day for Bitcoin. Bitcoin fell to an early morning intraday low $9,256.0 before making a move.
Steering clear of the first major support level at $9,189.27, Bitcoin rallied to a mid-afternoon intraday high $9,490.1.
Bitcoin broke through the first major resistance level at $9,367.57 and the second major resistance level at $9,467.63.
A late pullback saw Bitcoin fall back through the second major resistance level to a low $9,401.3.
Finding late support, however, Bitcoin avoided the first major resistance level to wrap up the day at $ 9,400 levels.
The near-term bullish trend remained intact in spite of the recent pullback to sub-$9,000 levels. For the bears, Bitcoin would need to slide through the 62% FIB of $6,400 to form a near-term bearish trend.
Across the rest of the majors, it was a particularly bullish day on Wednesday.
Cardano’s ADA (+10.54%), Ripple’s XRP (+10.98%), and Stellar’s Lumen (+15.61%) lead the way.
EOS (+4.80%), Litecoin (+4.47%), Tezos (+5.67%), and Tron’s TRX (+4.64%) also found strong support.
Binance Coin (+2.86%), Bitcoin Cash ABC (+1.90%), Bitcoin Cash SV (+1.48%), Ethereum (+3.25%), and Monero’s XMR (+2.55%) trailed the front runners.

Bitcoin left the major support and resistance levels untested early on.
Elsewhere, it was a mixed start to the day.
At the time of writing, Stellar’s Lumen and Binance Coin bucked the trend, with gains of 1.78% and 0.24% respectively.
It was bearish for the rest of the majors, with Cardano’s ADA (-1.43%), Ripple’s XRP (-1.05%), and Tezos (-1.26%) leading the way down.
Bitcoin would need to avoid a fall through the $9,400 pivot to support a run at the first major resistance level at $9,544.13.
Support from the broader market would be needed, however, for Bitcoin to break out from Wednesday’s high $9,497.2.
Barring an extended crypto rebound, the first major resistance level would likely cap any upside.
In the event of a crypto breakout, Bitcoin should break through the second major resistance level at $9,641.27.
Failure to avoid a fall through the $9,400 pivot level would bring the first major support level at $9,302.93 into play.
Barring an extended crypto sell-off, however, Bitcoin should avoid sub-$9,300 levels. The second major resistance level sits at $9,158.87.
