Bitcoin, BTC to USD, rose by 4.00% on Saturday. Following a 4.80% rally on Friday, Bitcoin ended the day at $44,568.0.

Bitcoin broke through the first major resistance level at $44,193 before sliding to a late afternoon intraday low $42,380.

Steering clear of the 38.2% FIB of $41,592 and the first major support level at $40,708 Bitcoin bounced back to end the day at $44,500 levels.
