Bitcoin broke through the first major support level at $36,341 before a pullback to sub-$36,000 levels.
In the late morning, however, Bitcoin broke back through the first major resistance level to revisit to $36,500 levels.
The Rest of the Pack
It’s also been a bullish morning for the broader crypto market.

Bitcoin’s dominance rose to an early high 41.84% before falling to a low 41.40%. At the time of writing, Bitcoin’s dominance stood at 41.58%.
For the Day Ahead
Bitcoin would need to avoid a fall back through the first major resistance level to support another run at the second major resistance level at $37,081.
Support from the broader market would be needed, however, for Bitcoin to break out from this morning’s high $36,784.0.
Barring an extended crypto rally, the second major resistance level would likely cap any upside.
In the event of a breakout, Bitcoin could test resistance at $39,000 before any pullback. The third major resistance level sits at $38,338.
Looking beyond the support and resistance levels, the 50 EMA narrowed on the 100 EMA and the 200 EMA early on. Going into the 2nd half of the day, however, there was no sign of an imminent bullish cross, leaving Bitcoin at risk of a reversal.
A fall back through the first major resistance level at $36,431 and $35,824 pivot would bring the first major support level at $35,174 into play.
Barring an extended rally through the afternoon, Bitcoin should steer clear of sub-$35,000 levels, however.
The second major support level sits at $34,567.
