The Crypto Daily – Movers and Shakers – October 28th, 2021

A mixed start to the day saw Bitcoin rise to an early morning intraday high $61,450.0 before hitting reverse.

Late in the day, Bitcoin briefly broke back through the first major support level to revisit $59,000 levels before ending the day at sub-$58,500 levels.

The near-term bullish trend remained intact, supported the latest return to $66,000 levels. For the bears, Bitcoin would need a sustained fall through the 62% FIB of $27,237 to form a near-term bearish trend.

Across the rest of the majors, it was a bearish day on Wednesday.

Chainlink led the way down, tumbling by 11.06%.

This Morning

At the time of writing, Bitcoin was up by 0.63% to $58,819.0. A mixed start to the day saw Bitcoin fall to an early morning low $58,392.0 before rising to a high $58,859.0.

Bitcoin left the major support and resistance levels untested early on.

Elsewhere, it was a bullish start to the day.

At the time of writing, Litecoin was up by 1.94% to lead the way.

For the Bitcoin Day Ahead

Bitcoin would need to move through the $59,283 pivot to bring the first major resistance level at $60,616 into play.

Support from the broader market would be needed for Bitcoin to break back through to $60,000 levels.

Barring a broad-based crypto rally, the first major resistance level would likely cap the upside.

In the event of another breakout, Bitcoin could test resistance at $63,000 levels. The second major resistance level sits at $62,783.

Failure to move through the $59,283 would bring the first major support level at $57,116 into play.

Barring another extended sell-off on the day, Bitcoin should steer clear of sub-$55,000 levels, however. The second major support level at $55,783 should limit the downside.
