A bullish start to the day saw Bitcoin rally to an early morning intraday high $50,148.0 before hitting reverse.
Falling well short of the first major resistance level at $51,182, Bitcoin slid to a late intraday low $47,158.0.
Steering clear of the first major support level at $46,539, however, Bitcoin found late support to end the day at $48,500 levels.
The near-term bullish trend remained intact in spite of last week’s reversal. For the bears, Bitcoin would need to slide through the 62% FIB of $24,751 to form a near-term bearish trend.

Bitcoin Cash SV and Polkadot rose by 3.70% and by 3.83% respectively to lead the way.

For the Bitcoin Day Ahead
Bitcoin would need to avoid a fall back through the pivot level at $48,614 to bring the first major resistance level at $50,070 into play.
Support from the broader market would be needed for Bitcoin to break back through to $50,000 levels.
Barring an extended crypto rally, the first major resistance level and Tuesday’s high $50,148.0 would likely cap any upside.
In the event of an extended crypto rally, Bitcoin could test resistance at $52,000 before any pullback. The second major resistance level sits at $51,604.
Failure to avoid a fall back through the $48,614 pivot would bring the first major support level at $47,080 into play.
Barring an extended sell-off on the day, Bitcoin should steer clear of the second major support level at $45,624 and the 23.6% FIB of $45,501.
