The near-term bullish trend remained intact, in spite of the latest pullback to sub-$56,000 levels. For the bears, Bitcoin would need a sustained fall through the 62% FIB of $28,814 to form a near-term bearish trend.
A late pullback saw Bitcoin briefly fall back through the second major resistance level before wrapping up the day at $59,100 levels.
