Bitcoin, BTC to USD, fell by 1.17% on Tuesday. Partially reversing an 11.79% rally from Monday, Bitcoin ended the day at $38,396.8.
A mixed start to the day saw Bitcoin rise to an early morning intraday high $39,829.4 before hitting reverse.
Falling short of the first major resistance level at $41,041, Bitcoin fell to a mid-day intraday low $36,455.0.

The near-term bullish trend remained intact in spite of the latest slide back to sub-$30,000 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 avoid a fall back through the pivot level at $38,227 to bring the first major resistance level at $40,000 into play.
Support from the broader market would be needed for Bitcoin to break back through to $39,000 levels.
Barring a broad-based crypto rally, the first major resistance level and Tuesday’s high $39,829.4 would likely cap any upside.
In the event of an extended crypto rally, Bitcoin could test resistance at the 38.2% FIB of $41,592 and the second major resistance level at $41,602.
Failure to avoid a fall back through the pivot at $38,227 would bring the first major support level at $36,625 into play.
Barring another extended sell-off on the day, Bitcoin should steer clear of sub-$35,000 levels. The second major support level sits at $34,853.
