Bitcoin, BTC to USD, rose by 1.11% on Thursday. Following on from a 0.89% gain on Wednesday, Bitcoin ended the day at $10,355.0.
It was a bullish start to the day. Bitcoin rose from an early morning intraday low $10,223.1 to an early afternoon intraday high $10,516.0.
Bitcoin broke through the first major resistance level at $10,396 before easing back.
Coming up against resistance at $10,500, Bitcoin fell to an afternoon low $10,266.0 before finding support.
Late in the day, Bitcoin moved back through to $10,300 levels to deliver the upside. Bitcoin fell well short of the major resistance levels, however.
The near-term bullish trend remained intact, in spite of the latest pullback to sub-$10,000. For the bears, Bitcoin would need to slide through the 62% FIB of $6,400 to form a near-term bearish trend.
The Rest of the Pack
Across the rest of the majors, it was another mixed day on Thursday.
Bitcoin Cash ABC (-0.06%), Bitcoin Cash SV (-0.82%), and Tron’s TRX (-3.07%) saw red to buck the trend on the day.

For the Bitcoin Day Ahead
Bitcoin would need to avoid a fall back through the $10,368 pivot level to support a run at the first major resistance level at $10,503.
Support from the broader market would be needed, however, for Bitcoin to break out from $10,450 levels.
Barring an extended crypto rally, the first major resistance level and resistance at $10,500 would likely cap any upside.
In the event of a crypto breakout, Bitcoin could test the second major resistance level at $10,651 and resistance at $10,700.
Failure to avoid a fall back through the $10,368 pivot would bring the first major support level at $10,220 into play.
Barring an extended crypto sell-off, however, Bitcoin should steer clear of sub-$10,000. The second major support level at $10,085 should limit any downside.
