Bitcoin, BTC to USD, rallied by 5.48% on Friday. Following a 4.57% gain on Thursday, Bitcoin ended the day at $49,330.5.

A mixed morning saw Bitcoin fall to an early morning intraday low $46,647.0 before finding support.

Steering clear of the of the first major support level at $44,818, Bitcoin rallied to a late intraday high $49,400.

Bitcoin broke through the first major resistance level at $47,887 and the second major resistance level at $49,008.

A late pullback, however, saw briefly Bitcoin fall back through the second major resistance level before ending the day at sub-$49,300 levels.

The near-term bullish trend remained intact, supported by the latest return to $49,000 levels. For the bears, Bitcoin would need a sustained fall 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 bullish day on Friday.

Bitcoin Cash SV (+7.60%) and Crypto.com Coin rallied by 7.60% and by 7.44% respectively to lead the way.

Binance Coin (+5.51%) and Chainlink (+6.05%) also found strong support.

Cardano’s ADA (+0.58%), Ethereum (+3.21%), Litecoin (+4.61%), Polkadot (+0.47%), and Ripple’s XRP (+2.39%) trailed the front runners, however.

In the current week, the crypto total market fell to a Wednesday low $1,832bn before rising to a Friday high $2,110bn. At the time of writing, the total market cap stood at $2,068bn.

Bitcoin’s dominance fell to a Tuesday low 43.67% before rising to a Wednesday high 45.35%. At the time of writing, Bitcoin’s dominance stood at 44.67%.

This Morning

At the time of writing, Bitcoin was down by 0.35% to $49,157.8. A mixed start to the day saw Bitcoin rise to an early morning high $49,374.0 before falling to a low $49,157.8.

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

Elsewhere, it was a bearish start to the day.

At the time of writing, Ripple’s XRP was down by 0.92% to lead the way down.

For the Bitcoin Day Ahead

Bitcoin would need to avoid the $48,459 pivot to bring the first major resistance level at $50,271 and the 23.6% FIB of $50,473 into play.

Support from the broader market would be needed for Bitcoin to break out from Friday’s high $49,400.0.

Barring a broad-based crypto rally, the first major resistance level and resistance at the 23.6% FIB would likely cap any upside.

In the event of an extended crypto rally, Bitcoin could test resistance at $53,000 levels before any pullback. The second major resistance level sits at $51,212.

A fall through the $48,459 pivot would bring the first major support level at $47,518 into play.

Barring an extended sell-off on the day, Bitcoin should steer clear of sub-$46,000 levels. The second major support level sits $45,706.
