Coming up against resistance at $16,000, Bitcoin eased back to wrap up the day at $15,700 levels. The pullback saw Bitcoin briefly fall back through the second major resistant level at $15,685.
The near-term bullish trend remained intact, supported by the latest move through to $15,000 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 mixed day on Wednesday.
Binance Coin (-0.69%), Chainlink (-1.85%), and Polkadot (-1.80%) saw red to buck the trend.

Bitcoin would need to move back through the pivot level at $15,661 to bring the first major resistance level at $16,030 into play.
Support from the broader market would be needed for Bitcoin to break out from Wednesday’s high $15,981.0.
Barring an extended crypto rally, the first major resistance level would likely cap any upside.
In the event of a crypto breakout, Bitcoin could test the second major resistance level at $16,350 and resistance at $16,500.
Failure to move back through the $15,661 pivot would bring the first major support level at $15,341 into play.
Barring an extended crypto sell-off, Bitcoin should steer well clear of sub-$15,000 levels. The second major support level sits at $14,972.
