Bitcoin, BTC to USD, rose by 0.08% on Friday. Following on from a 3.74% rally on Thursday, Bitcoin ended the day at $16,308.6.
It was a bullish start to the day. Bitcoin rose to an early morning intraday high and new swing hi $16,481.0 before hitting reverse.
Falling short of the first major resistance level at $16,596, Bitcoin slid to a late afternoon intraday low $15,974.0.
Steering clear of the first major support level at $15,725, Bitcoin bounced back to $16,300 levels to end the day in the green.
The near-term bullish trend remained intact, supported by the latest move through to $16,000 levels. For the bears, Bitcoin would need to slide through the 62% FIB of $8,768 to form a near-term bearish trend.

Bitcoin Cash ABC and Crypto.com Coin fell by 0.05% and by 2.65% respectively to buck the trend on the day.

Chainlink (+3.79%), Ethereum (+3.07%), Polkadot (+2.91%), and Ripple’s XRP (+4.31%) also found strong support.
Binance Coin (+1.88%), Bitcoin Cash SV (+1.67%), and Cardano’s ADA (+1.78%) trailed the front runners.

It was a bearish start for the rest of the majors, however.

For the Bitcoin Day Ahead
Bitcoin would need to avoid a fall back through the pivot level at $16,255 to bring the first major resistance level at $16,535 into play.
Support from the broader market would be needed for Bitcoin to break out from Friday’s high $16,481.0.
Barring an extended crypto rally, the first major resistance level would likely cap any upside.
In the event of another crypto breakout, Bitcoin could test the second major resistance level at $16,762 and resistance at $17,000.
Failure to avoid a fall back through the $16,255 pivot would bring the first major support level at $16,028 into play.
Barring an extended crypto sell-off, Bitcoin should steer clear of sub-$16,000 levels. The second major support level sits at $15,748.
