The rebound caused Bitcoin to break through the first and second major resistance levels to end the day at $ 24,700.
The short term uptrend remained intact, aided by the recent break to $ 24,000. For the bears, Bitcoin would have to slide through the 62% FIB of $ 11,946 to form a short-term bearish trend.
The rest of the pack
For the other majors it was a mixed day on Friday.
Chainlink (-0.29%), Polkadot (-2.20%) and Ripple's XRP (-5.94%) saw red to buck the trend of the day.
For the rest of the majors, however, it was a bullish day.
Litecoin was up 14.84% and led the way.
Bitcoin Cash SV (+ 2.96%), Cardanos ADA (+ 2.99%) and Crypto.com Coin (+ 3.96%) also found relatively strong support.
However, Binance Coin (+ 2.13%) and Ethereum (+ 2.37%) followed the front runners.
For the current week, total crypto market cap rose to a Monday high of $ 671.50 billion before slipping to a Wednesday low of $ 590.85 billion. At the time of writing, its total market cap was $ 657.72 billion.

Bitcoin left key support and resistance levels untested early on.
Elsewhere it was a mixed start to the day.
Ripple's XRP (-2.02%), Cardanos ADA (-0.29%) and Litecoin (-0.12%) joined Bitcoin early on.
It was a bullish start for the rest of the majors, however.
At the time of writing, Crypto.com Coin was up 2.42%, leading the way.
For the Bitcoin Day Ahead
Bitcoin would have to avoid a drop in the pivot level at $ 24,126 to bring the first major resistance level into play at $ 25,396.
The broader market support would be required for Bitcoin to break out of Friday's high of $ 24,802.0.
Aside from an extended crypto rally, the first major level of resistance would likely limit an uptrend.
In the event of another extended crypto rally, Bitcoin could test resistance before pulling back at $ 26,000. The second major resistance level is at $ 26,073.
Unless a fall from the $ 24,126 pivot is avoided, the first major support level of $ 23,449 is brought into play.
Subject to another extended crypto sell-off, Bitcoin should avoid levels below $ 23,000. The second major level of support is at $ 22,179.
