Bitcoin, BTC to USD, fell by 0.92% on Tuesday. Partially reversing a 3.87% gain from Monday, Bitcoin ended the day at $40,137.0.
A mixed start to the day saw Bitcoin fall to a late morning intraday low $39,445.9 before making a move.
Steering clear of the first major support level at $39,167, Bitcoin rallied to a late intraday high $41,273.0.
Falling short of the first major resistance level at $41,415, however, Bitcoin fell back to sub-$40,500 and into the red.
The near-term bullish trend remained intact supported by the latest move back through to $41,000 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 $40,285 pivot to bring the first major resistance level at $41,125 and the 38.2% FIB of $41,592 into play.
Support from the broader market would be needed for Bitcoin to break back through to $41,000 levels.
Barring a broad-based crypto rally, the first major resistance level and resistance at the 38.2% FIB would likely cap any upside.
In the event of an extended crypto rally, Bitcoin could test resistance at $43,000 before any pullback. The second major resistance level sits at $42,112.
Failure to move through the $40,285 pivot would bring the first major support level at $39,298 into play.
Barring an extended sell-off on the day, Bitcoin should steer clear of sub-$39,000 levels. The second major support level sits at $38,458
