A bullish start to the day saw Bitcoin rise to a late morning intraday high $39,519.0 before hitting reverse.
Falling short of the first major resistance level at $39,830, Bitcoin slid to a late intraday low $37,387.0.
Bitcoin fell through the first major support level at $37,491 before a late move back through to $38,000 levels.
The near-term bullish trend remained intact in spite of the latest slide back to sub-$38,000 levels. For the bears, Bitcoin would need a sustained fall through the 62% FIB of $27,237 to form a near-term bearish trend.
