A bullish start to the day saw Bitcoin rise to a mid-morning intraday high $45,800.0 before hitting reverse.
Falling short of the first major resistance level at $46,177, Bitcoin slid to a late intraday low $42,316.0.
Steering clear of the 38.2% FIB of $41,592 and the first major support level at $41,509, Bitcoin ended the day at $42,900 levels.
The near-term bullish trend remained intact in spite of the latest slide back to sub-$43,000 levels. For the bears, Bitcoin would need to slide through the 62% FIB of $27,237 to form a near-term bearish trend.
