The Rest of the Pack

Across the rest of the majors, it was a mixed day on Wednesday.

Binance Coin (-1.88%) and Litecoin (-0.39%) saw red to buck the trend on the day.

It was a bullish day for the rest of the majors, however.

Crypto.com Coin rallied by 14.28% to lead the way, with Polkadot (+4.15%) also finding strong support.

Bitcoin Cash SV (+0.31%), Cardano’s ADA (+0.04%), Chainlink (+0.17%), Ethereum (+1.89%), and Ripple’s XRP (+0.76%) trailed the front runners, however.

In the current week, the crypto total market rose to a Monday high $2,902bn before falling to a Wednesday low $2,472bn. At the time of writing, the total market cap stood at $2,599.

This Morning

At the time of writing, Bitcoin was up by 0.51% to $60,658.0. A mixed start to the day saw Bitcoin fall to an early morning low $60,135.0 before rising to a high $60,666.0.

Bitcoin left the major support and resistance levels untested early on.

Elsewhere, it was a mixed start to the day.

Bitcoin Cash SV and Polkadot bucked the early trend, falling by 0.25% and by 0.08% respectively.

It’s been a bullish start for the rest of the majors, however.

At the time of writing, Crypto.com Coin was up by 11.18% to lead the way.

For the Bitcoin Day Ahead

Bitcoin would need to avoid a fall through the $59,857 pivot to bring the first major resistance level at $61,347 into play.

Support from the broader market would be needed for Bitcoin to break out from Wednesday’s high $60,851.0.

Barring a broad-based crypto rally, the first major resistance level would likely cap the upside.

In the event of an extended rally, Bitcoin could test resistance at $63,000 levels before easing back. The second major resistance level sits at $62,340.

A fall through the $59,857 pivot would bring the first major support level at $58,864 into play.

Barring another extended sell-off on the day, Bitcoin should steer clear of sub-$57,000 levels. The second major support level at $57,374 should limit the downside.
