Bitcoin, BTC to USD, slipped by 0.41% on Friday. Following a 4.75% rally on Thursday, Bitcoin ended the day at $10,708.0.
It was a bearish start to the day. Bitcoin fell from an early morning intraday high $10,774.0 to an early afternoon intraday low $10,580.0.
Steering clear of the first major support level at $10,370, Bitcoin recovered to match the intraday high $10,774.
Falling short of the first major resistance level at $10,990, however, Bitcoin eased back to sub-$10,750 and into the red.
The near-term bullish trend remained intact, in spite of the latest pullback. For the bears, Bitcoin would need to slide through the 62% FIB of $6,400 to form a near-term bearish trend.

Across the rest of the majors, it was a mixed day on Friday.
Cardano’s ADA led the way, surging by 17.41%.

Binance Coin (+0.41%), Bitcoin Cash ABC (+0.79%), Crypto.com Coin (+1.59%), Ethereum (+0.85%), Litecoin (+2.38%), and Polkadot (+1.23%) also found support.
Bitcoin Cash SV joined Bitcoin in the red, however, falling by 1.96%.

For the Bitcoin Day Ahead
Bitcoin would need to avoid a fall through the $10,687 pivot level to support a run at the first major resistance level at $10,795.
Support from the broader market would be needed, however, for Bitcoin to break out from Friday’s high $10,744.0.
Barring an extended crypto rally, the first major resistance level would likely cap any upside.
In the event of a crypto breakout, Bitcoin could test resistance at $11,000 before any pullback. The second major resistance level at $10,881 would likely cap any upside, however.
Failure to avoid a fall through the $10,687 pivot would bring the first major support level at $10,601 into play.
Barring another extended crypto sell-off, however, Bitcoin should steer clear of sub-$10,500 levels. The second major support level sits at $10,493.
