The near-term bullish trend remained intact in spite of the latest slide back to sub-$30,000 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 back through the $33,781 pivot to bring the first major resistance level at $34,842 into play.
Support from the broader market would be needed for Bitcoin to break out from $34,500 levels.
Barring a broad-based crypto rebound, the first major resistance level and Thursday’s high $35,069 would likely cap any upside.
In the event of an extended crypto rally, Bitcoin could test the second major resistance level at $36,130.
Failure to move back through the $33,781 pivot would bring the first major support level at $32,493 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 $31,432 should limit the downside.
