The Rest of the Pack
It has been a mixed morning for the broader crypto market. At the time of writing, Polkadot was down by 4.00% to lead the way down, with Ethereum (-2.11%) also bucking the morning trend.It was a bullish day for the rest of the majors, however. Through the morning, Cardano’s ADA and Crypto.com Coin led the way, rallying by 6.06% and by 5.46% respectively.
Litecoin (+3.02%) and Ripple’s XRP (+3.10%) also found strong support, while Binance Coin (+0.17%), Bitcoin Cash SV (+0.61%), and Chainlink (+0.04%) trailed.

Bitcoin’s dominance fell to an early morning low 41.76% before rising to a high 42.39%. At the time of writing, Bitcoin’s dominance stood at 42.15%.
For the Afternoon Ahead
Bitcoin would need to avoid a fall back through the first major resistance level at $49,778 to bring the second major resistance level at $50,733 into play.
Support from the broader market would be needed, however, for Bitcoin to break back through the 23.6% FIB of $50,473.
Barring an extended crypto rally through the afternoon, the second major resistance level would likely cap any upside.
In the event of an extended rally, however, Bitcoin could target $53,000 before any pullback. The third major resistance level sits at $53,282.
