Bitcoin, BTC to USD, fell by 0.17% on Tuesday. Following on from a 1.07% decline on Monday, Bitcoin ended the day at $15,311.5.
It was a range-bound start to the day. Bitcoin rose to a late morning intraday high $15,474.0 before hitting reverse.
Falling well short of the first major resistance level at $15,839, Bitcoin slid to a mid-afternoon intraday low $15,077.0.

Bitcoin Cash ABC (-2.49%), Bitcoin Cash SV (-1.94%), Crypto.com Coin (-0.86%), and Litecoin (-2.23%) saw red to buck the trend on the day.

For the Bitcoin Day Ahead
Bitcoin would need to avoid a fall through the pivot level at $15,288 to bring the first major resistance level at $15,498 into play.
Support from the broader market would be needed for Bitcoin to break back through to $15,500 levels.
Barring an extended crypto rally, the first major resistance level and Tuesday’s high $15,474.0 would likely cap any upside.
In the event of a crypto breakout, Bitcoin could test the second major resistance level at $15,685 and resistance at $15,700.
Failure to avoid a fall through the $15,288 pivot would bring the first major support level at $15,101 into play.
Barring an extended crypto sell-off, Bitcoin should steer well clear of sub-$15,000 levels. The second major support level sits at $14,891.
