Bitcoin, BTC to USD, fell 2.11% on Tuesday. Bitcoin partially reversed a 9.49% rally from Monday, ending the day at $ 48,536.0.
On a bullish start to the day, Bitcoin rebounded to an early morning intraday high of $ 50,148.0 before hitting reverse.
Bitcoin fell well short of its first major resistance level at $ 51,182, falling to a late intraday low of $ 47,158.0.
However, Bitcoin stayed away from the first major level of support at $ 46,539, finding that support came too late to end the day at $ 48,500.
The short-term uptrend remained intact despite last week’s reversal. For the bears, Bitcoin would have to slide through the 62% FIB of $ 24,751 to form a short-term bearish trend.
The rest of the pack
Tuesday was a mixed day for the other majors.
Bitcoin Cash SV and Polkadot rose 3.70% and 3.83% respectively, leading the way.
Chainlink (+ 2.81%), Crypto.com Coin (+ 2.16%) and Litecoin (+ 1.80%) also found support to buck the trend of the day.
It was a bearish day for the rest of the majors, however.
Binance Coin (-5.87%), Cardanos ADA (-5.64%) and Ethereum (-5.31%) went down.
Ripple’s XRP (-2.24%) saw a relatively small loss that day.
Earlier this week, the overall crypto market fell to a Monday low of $ 1,345.39 billion before rising to a Tuesday high of $ 1,533.73 billion. At the time of writing, total market cap was $ 1,436.62 billion.

Bitcoin left key support and resistance levels untested early on.
Elsewhere it was a mixed start to the day.
Litecoin and Ripple’s XRP fell 0.04% and 0.46%, respectively, to defy the trend early on.
For the rest of the majors, however, it’s been a bullish start.
At the time of writing, polkadot had risen 1.95% to take the lead.
The story goes on
For the Bitcoin Day Ahead
Bitcoin would have to avoid relapsing through the pivot level at $ 48,614 to bring the first major resistance level at $ 50,070 into play.
In order for Bitcoin to get back to $ 50,000 levels, it would require broader market support.
Aside from an extended crypto rally, the first major resistance level and $ 50,148.0 high on Tuesday would likely limit an uptrend.
In the event of an extended crypto rally, Bitcoin could test resistance before pulling back at $ 52,000. The second major resistance level is at $ 51,604.
Unless a relapse is avoided by the $ 48,614 pivot, the first major support level of $ 47,080 is brought into play.
Subject to an extended sell-off that day, Bitcoin should avoid the second major support level at $ 45,624 and the 23.6% FIB of $ 45,501.
