Bitcoin fell through the first major support level at $31,898.
Steering clear of sub-$31,000 support levels, Bitcoin partially recovered to end the day at $31,890 levels. The first major resistance level at $31,898 pinned Bitcoin back at the day’s end.
The near-term bullish trend remained intact, in spite of the latest return to $31,000 levels. For the bears, Bitcoin would need a sustained fall through the 62% FIB of $27,237 to form a near-term bearish trend.

For the Bitcoin Day Ahead
Bitcoin would need to move through the $32,080 pivot to bring the first major resistance level at $33,010 into play.
Support from the broader market would be needed for Bitcoin to break out from $32,500 levels.
Barring a broad-based crypto rally, the first major resistance level and resistance at Thursday’s high $33,200.0 would likely cap any upside.
In the event of an extended crypto rally, Bitcoin could test resistance at $34,000 levels before any pullback. The second major resistance level sits at $34,130.
Failure to move through the $32,080 pivot would bring the first major support level at $30,960 into play.
Barring another extended sell-off on the day, Bitcoin should steer clear of sub-$30,000 levels. The second major support level at $30,030 should limit the downside.
