Bitcoin, BTC to USD, rallied by 5.98% on Tuesday. Following on from a 1.35% gain on Monday, Bitcoin ended the day at $35,577.0.

A mixed start to the day saw Bitcoin fall to an early morning intraday low $33,500.0 before making a move.

Steering clear of the 23.6% FIB of $33,008 and the first major support level at $32,364, Bitcoin rallied to a late intraday high $36,054.0.

Bitcoin broke through the first major resistance level at $34,738 and the second major resistance level at $35,909.

A late pullback, however, saw Bitcoin fall back through the second major resistance level to end the day at sub-$35,600 levels.

The near-term bullish trend remained intact, in spite of the recent pullback to sub-$40,000. For the bears, Bitcoin would need to slide through the 62% FIB of $18,504 to form a near-term bearish trend.
