Bitcoin, BTC to USD, rose by 0.06% on Wednesday. Partially reversing a 2.70% loss from Tuesday, Bitcoin ended the day at $44,721.0.
A choppy start to the day saw Bitcoin fall to an early morning intraday low $44,266.0 before making a move.
Steering clear of the first major support level at $43,702, Bitcoin rallied to a late intraday high $46,010.0.

For the Bitcoin Day Ahead
Bitcoin would need to move through the $44,999 pivot to bring the first major resistance level at $45,732 into play.
Support from the broader market would be needed for Bitcoin to break back out from $45,500 levels.
Barring a broad-based crypto rally, the first major resistance level and Wednesday’s high $46,010.0 would likely cap any upside.
In the event of an extended crypto rally, Bitcoin could test resistance at $48,000 levels before any pullback. The second major resistance level sits at $46,743.
Failure to move through the $44,999 pivot would bring the first major support level at $43,988 into play.
Barring an extended sell-off on the day, Bitcoin should steer clear of sub-$43,000 levels. The second major support level at $43,255 should limit the downside.
