Bitcoin, BTC to USD, rose by 0.57% on Saturday. Partially reversing a 3.33% loss from Friday, Bitcoin ended the day at $45,107.0.
A mixed start to the day saw Bitcoin fall to an early morning intraday low $44,750,0 before making a move.
Steering clear of the first major support level at $43,657, Bitcoin rose to a late afternoon intraday high $45,990.0.
Falling short of the first major resistance level at $46,546, however, Bitcoin eased back to end the day at sub-$45,200 levels.
The near-term bullish trend remained intact, in spite of the latest return to $43,000 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 $45,282 pivot to bring the first major resistance level at $45,815 into play.
Support from the broader market would be needed for Bitcoin to break out from $45,500 levels.
Barring a broad-based crypto rally, the first major resistance level and Saturday’s high $45,990.0 would likely cap the upside.
In the event of a broad-based crypto rally, Bitcoin could test resistance at $47,000 before any pullback. The second major resistance level sits at $46,522.
Failure to move through the $45,282 pivot would bring the first major support level at $44,575 into play.
Barring an extended sell-off on the day, Bitcoin should steer clear of sub-$44,000. The second major support level at $44,042 should limit the downside.
