The near-term bullish trend remained intact, supported by the latest return to $40,000 levels. For the bears, Bitcoin would need a sustained fall through the 62% FIB of $27,237 to form a near-term bearish trend.

For the Bitcoin Day Ahead
Bitcoin would need to avoid a fall back through the $39,907 pivot to bring the first major resistance level at $41,010 into play.
Support from the broader market would be needed for Bitcoin to break out from Wednesday’s high $40,900.0.
Barring a broad-based crypto rally, the first major resistance level and the 38.2% FIB of $41,592 would likely cap any upside.
In the event of another extended crypto rally, Bitcoin could test resistance at $43,000 before any pullback. The second major resistance level sits at $42,004.
A fall back through the $39,907 pivot would bring the first major support level at $38,913 into play.
Barring an extended sell-off on the day, Bitcoin should steer clear of the second major support level at $37,810.
