Investors expected the crypto market to rally again. However, the great surge hasn’t materialized thus far. Bitcoin climbed up by only 0.87% to $51,807.0 on Friday. After a mixed start of the day, the crypto tumbled down to an early morning low of $51,300.0 before surging forward to a high of $52,115.0. It also left the major support and resistance levels untested.
On Thursday, Bitcoin declined by 1.86%. After losing 3.72% on Wednesday, the crypto ended the day at $51,358.0. It fluctuated during the session, though, dropping to an early morning low of $51,511.0 before moving again. Bitcoin also steered clear of the major support levels, and then it skyrocketed to a late morning intraday high of $53,116.0.
However, the crypto fell short of the first major resistance level at $55,853 and plummeted down to a mid-day intraday low of $50,350.0. Afterwards, Bitcoin avoided the first major support level at $50,163, but it managed to move back through to $51,300 levels, reducing the loss on the day.
Thus far, the near-term bullish trend is still intact despite the latest pullback. The crypto would need to fell through the 62% FIB of $26,041 to form a near-term bearish trend.
Bitcoin’s dominance dropped to a Tuesday low of 60.20% before soaring to a Wednesday high of 62.24%. On Friday, Bitcoin’s dominance sat at 60.94%.
