Bitcoin broke through the first major resistance level at $10,396 before easing back.

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.
