Bitcoin surged forward by 1.64% to $48,795.0 on Friday. After a mixed start of the day, the crypto tumbled down to an early morning low $47,987.0 before hitting a new swing hi $48,945.0. However, it left the major support and resistance levels untested thus far.
On Thursday, Bitcoin skyrocketed by 7.07%. After reversing a 3.54% plunge from Wednesday, the crypto ended the day at $48,008. However, it started that day on the bearish territory, tumbling to an early morning intraday low $43,917.4 before moving again.
Bitcoin also steered clear of the first major support level at $43,284, but then it jumped to a late intraday high and a new swing hi $48,598.0.
Furthermore, the crypto managed to break through the first major resistance level at $46,890 before dropping back to sub-$46,000 levels. Despite that fall, it found late support and moved back through to $48,000 levels, delivering the upside on the day.
Thus far, the near-term bullish trend remained intact as of Thursday’s new swing hi $48,598.0 supported it. The crypto would need to plunge through the 62% FIB of $21,036 to form a near-term bearish trend.
Bitcoin’s dominance rallied to a Tuesday high of 64.76% before dropping to a Wednesday low of 61.13%, though. On Friday, Bitcoin’s dominance sat at 62.79%.
The crypto will need to avoid a drop through the $46,841 pivot level if traders want to bring the first major resistance level at $49,765 into play.
