Bitcoin, BTC to USD, fell by 1.02% on Tuesday. Following Monday’s 11.01% breakout, Bitcoin ended the day at $10,932.
It was a mixed start to the day. Bitcoin rose to an early morning intraday high $11,263 before hitting reverse.
Falling short of the first major resistance level at $11,634, Bitcoin fell to a late morning intraday low $10,590.
Steering clear of the first major support level at $10,200, Bitcoin moved back through to $11,200 levels.
A bearish end to the day, however, saw Bitcoin give up the $11,000 handle to end the day in the red.
The near-term bullish trend remained intact, supported by the latest run at $11,000 levels. For the bears, Bitcoin would need to slide through the 62% FIB of $6,400 to form a near-term bearish trend.
The Rest of the Pack
Across the rest of the majors, it was a mixed day on Tuesday.
Ethereum joined Bitcoin in the red, with a 1.49% loss.
It was a bullish day for the rest of the majors, however.
Bitcoin Cash ABC and Cardano’s ADA led the way, with gains of 7.54% and 7.83% respectively.
Bitcoin Cash SV (+3.73%), EOS (+5.06%), Litecoin (+4.61%), Monero’s XMR (+3.77%), and Stellar’s Lumen (+3.66%) also found strong support.
Binance Coin (+2.27%), Ripple’s XRP (+2.67%), Tezos (+0.47%), and Tron’s TRX (+2.26%) trailed the front runners.
At the start of the week, the crypto total market cap rose from a Monday low $285.49bn to a high $335.80bn. At the time of writing, the total market cap stood at $315.11bn.

It was a bearish start for the rest of the majors, however.
Cardano’s ADA was down by 1.85% to lead the way down.
For the Bitcoin Day Ahead
Bitcoin would need to move back through the $10,928 pivot to support a run at the first major resistance level at $11,267.
Support from the broader market would be needed, however, for Bitcoin to break back through to $11,200 levels.
Barring an extended crypto rally, the first major resistance level and Tuesday’s high $11,263 would likely cap any upside.
In the event of a crypto breakout, Bitcoin could eye the second major resistance level at $11,601.
Failure to move back through the $10,928 pivot level would bring the first major support level at $10,594 into play.
Barring an extended crypto sell-off, however, Bitcoin should steer well clear of the second major support level at $10,255.
