A mixed start to the day saw Bitcoin fall to an early morning low $43,102.0 before finding support.

In spite of the recovery, Bitcoin fell well short of the first major resistance level at $44,849, leading to a pullback to sub-$44,000 levels.

BTCUSD 230921 Hourly Chart

The Rest of the Pack

It has also been a bearish morning for the broader crypto market.

For the Afternoon Ahead

Support from the broader market will be needed, however, for Bitcoin to break out from the morning high $44,356.0.

Barring a broad-based crypto rebound, the first major resistance level and resistance at $45,000 would likely cap any upside.

In the event of an extended rally through the afternoon, Bitcoin could test resistance at $48,000 before any pullback. The second major resistance level sits at $46,124.

A fall through the $42,725 pivot would bring the 38.2% FIB of $41,592 and the first major support level at $41,450 into play.

Barring an extended sell-off through the afternoon, however, Bitcoin should avoid sub-$40,000 support levels. The second major support level sits at $39,326.

Looking beyond the support and resistance levels, we saw the 50 EMA narrow on the 100 and the 200 EMAs through the morning.

We also saw the 100 EMA hold steady on the 200 EMA, providing support.

Through the 2nd half of the day, a further narrowing of the 50 EMA on the 100 and 200 EMAs would bring $45,000 levels into play.

Key through the late morning and early afternoon would be to avoid a fall through the day’s pivot to $42,725 to support Bitcoin and the broader market.

BTCUSD 220921 Hourly Chart

The Rest of the Pack

It has also been a mixed morning for the broader crypto market.

Through the morning, Crypto.com Coin was down by 4.49% to buck the morning trend.

It’s been a relatively bullish morning for the rest of the majors, however.

At the time of writing, Cardano’s ADA and Ripple’s XRP were up by 7.83% and by 7.72% to lead the way.

Binance Coin (+5.39%), Bitcoin Cash SV (+3.70%), Chainlink (6.93%), Ethereum (+6.28%), Litecoin (+4.24%), Polkadot (+4.57%) also found strong support.

Bitcoin’s dominance rose to an early morning high 42.59% before falling to a low 42.03%. At the time of writing, Bitcoin’s dominance stood at 42.02%.

For the Afternoon Ahead

Bitcoin would need to avoid a fall back through the 38.2% FIB of $41,592 and the $41,350 pivot to bring the first major resistance level at $43,022 into play.

Support from the broader market will be needed, however, for Bitcoin to break out from the morning high $42,744.0.

Barring a broad-based crypto rebound, the first major resistance level would likely cap any upside.

In the event of an extended rally through the afternoon, Bitcoin could test resistance at $45,000 before any pullback. The second major resistance level sits at $45,297.

A fall back through the 38.2% FIB of $41,592 and the $41,350 pivot would bring the first major support level at $39,076 into play.

Barring an extended sell-off through the afternoon, however, Bitcoin should avoid sub-$39,000 support levels. The second major support level sits at $37,403.

Looking beyond the support and resistance levels, we saw the 50 EMA pullback from the 100 and the 200 EMAs through the morning.

We also saw the 100 EMA pullback from the 200 EMA, also a bearish signal.

Through the 2nd half of the day, a flattening of the 50 EMA on the 100 and 200 EMAs would provide support.

Key through the late morning and early afternoon would be to avoid a fall back through the day’s pivot to $41,350 to support Bitcoin and the broader market.

Avoiding the second major support level at $39,546, however, Bitcoin ended the day at $40,700 levels.

The near-term bullish trend remained intact, in spite of the latest return to sub-$40,000 levels. For the bears, Bitcoin would need a sustained fall through the 62% FIB of $27,237 to form a near-term bearish trend.

The Rest of the Pack

Across the rest of the majors, it was a mixed day on Tuesday.

Bitcoin Cash SV rose by 3.08% to buck the trend on the day.

For the Bitcoin Day Ahead

Bitcoin would need to move through the $41,350 pivot the 38.2% FIB of $41,592 to bring the first major resistance level at $43,023 into play.

Support from the broader market would be needed for Bitcoin to break back through to $43,000 levels.

Barring a broad-based crypto rally, the first major resistance level and Tuesday’s high $43,625.0 would likely cap the upside.

The Rest of the Pack

It has also been a bearish morning for the broader crypto market.

Through the morning, Ripple’s XRP led the way down, sliding by 8.29%, with Chainlink (-7.96%) and Crypto.com Coin (-7.10%) close behind.

Binance Coin (-6.54%), Cardano’s ADA (-6.79%), Ethereum (-5.77%), and Litecoin (-6.49%) also saw deep red.

Bitcoin Cash SV (-4.04%) and Polkadot (-5.00%) saw relatively modest losses through the morning.

Through the early hours, the crypto total market cap rose to an early morning high $2,126bn before falling to a low $1,971bn. At the time of writing, the total market cap stood at $1,994bn.

Bitcoin’s dominance fell to an early morning low 41.89% before rising to a late morning high 42.48%. At the time of writing, Bitcoin’s dominance stood at 42.25%.

For the Afternoon Ahead

Bitcoin would need to move through the $47,482 pivot to bring the first major resistance level at $48,127 into play.

Support from the broader market will be needed, however, for Bitcoin to break back through the major support levels.

Barring a broad-based crypto rebound, resistance at $47,500 would likely leave Bitcoin short of the first major resistance level.

In the event of an extended rally through the afternoon, Bitcoin could test resistance at the 23.6% FIB of $50,473 before any pullback. The second major resistance level sits at $49,015.

Failure to move back through second major support level at $45,949 would bring the third major support level at $44,416 back into play.

Barring an extended sell-off through the afternoon, however, Bitcoin should avoid sub-$43,500.

Looking beyond the support and resistance levels, we saw the 50 EMA cross through the 100 and 200 EMAs through the morning.

We also saw the 100 EMA narrow on the 200 EMA, delivering further bearish signals.

Through the 2nd half of the day, a bearish cross of the 100 EMA through the 200 EMA would bring sub-$44,000 levels into play.

Key through the late morning and early afternoon would be to move back through the day’s support levels to avoid further losses and risk sub-$40,000 near-term.

We saw the 100 EMA widen from the 200 EMA, however, providing support.

Through the 2nd half of the day, a widening of the 50 EMA from the 100 and 200 EMAs would bring $50,000 levels.

Key through the late morning and early afternoon would be to move back through the day’s $47,791 pivot and revisit $48,500 levels.
