The Crypto Daily – Movers and Shakers – April 25th, 2021

Bitcoin, BTC to USD, fell by 1.91% on Saturday. Following on from a 1.17% decline on Friday, Bitcoin ended the day at $50,161.0.

A mixed start to the day saw Bitcoin rise to an early morning intraday high $51,201.0 before hitting reverse.

Falling short of the first major resistance level at $52,993, Bitcoin fell to a late morning intraday low $48,852.0.

While steering clear of the first major support level at $48,422, Bitcoin fell back through the 23.6% FIB of $50,473.

Finding late morning support, however, Bitcoin broke back through the 23.6% FIB to revisit $51,000 levels before easing back.

A bearish end to the day saw Bitcoin fall back through the 23.6% FIB to end the day at sub-$50,200 levels.

The near-term bullish trend remained intact in spite of the latest reversal. For the bears, Bitcoin would need to slide through the 62% FIB of $27,237 to form a near-term bearish trend.

Crypto.com Coin rose by 2.70% to buck the trend on the day.

For the Bitcoin Day Ahead

Bitcoin would need to avoid the $50,071 pivot to bring the 23.6% FIB of $50,473 and the first major resistance level at $51,291 into play.

Support from the broader market would be needed for Bitcoin to break out from Saturday’s high $51,201.0.

Barring an extended crypto rally, the first major resistance level and Saturday’s high would likely cap any upside.

In the event of an extended crypto rally, Bitcoin could test resistance at $53,000 before any pullback. The second major resistance level sits at $52,420.

Failure to avoid a fall through the $50,071 pivot would bring the first major support level at $48,942 into play.

Barring another extended sell-off on the day, Bitcoin should steer clear of sub-$47,000 levels. The second major support level at $47,722 should limit the downside.
