A mixed start to the day saw Bitcoin rise to an early morning high $39,275.0 before hitting reverse.
Falling short of the first major resistance level at $40,079, Bitcoin slid to a mid-day intraday low $35,586.0.
The extended sell-off saw Bitcoin fall through the first major support level at $37,776 and the second major support level at $36,326.
Steering clear of sub-$35,000 levels, Bitcoin broke back through the second major support level to end the day at $36,800 levels.
The near-term bullish trend remained intact supported by the latest move back through to $39,000 levels. For the bears, Bitcoin would need a sustained fall through the 62% FIB of $27,237 to form a near-term bearish trend.
