Bitcoin rose by 0.50% on Tuesday. Following on from a 2.84% rally on Monday, Bitcoin ended the day at $7,198.3.
A bullish start to the day saw Bitcoin rise to a mid-morning intraday high $7,386.3 before hitting reverse.
Falling short of the first major resistance level at $7,512.13, Bitcoin slid to a late morning intraday low $7,047.2.
Steering clear of sub-$7,000 levels and the first major support level at $6,715.73, Bitcoin found support through the afternoon.
Bitcoin moved back through to $7,200 levels before wrapping up the day at $7,198.3.
In spite of 2nd consecutive day in the green, the near-term bearish trend, formed at late June’s swing hi $13,764.0, remained firmly intact.
For the bulls, Bitcoin would need to break out from $11,000 levels to form a near-term bullish trend.
The Rest of the Pack
Across the rest of the top 10 cryptos, it was another mixed day for the majors on Tuesday.
EOS and Litecoin led the way, with gains of 3.64% and 3.14% on the day.
Binance Coin (+1.25%), Bitcoin Cash ABC (+1.79%), Bitcoin Cash SV (+1.83%), Ethereum (+1.14%), and Ripple’s XRP (+1.37%) also saw solid gains.
Stellar’s Lumen bucked the trend on the day, however, falling by 0.17%.
From outside of the top 10, Tron’s TRX rallied by 8.08% on the day, as it looked to recover its number 10 spot.
In the early part of the week, the crypto total market cap slid to a Monday low $180.76bn before rebounding to a Monday current week high $198.76bn. At the time of writing, the total market cap stood at $196.40bn.
Bitcoin’s dominance held onto 66% levels, in spite of the more bullish start to the week for the broader market. 24-hour trading volumes fell back to sub-$80bn levels from $133bn levels earlier in the week.
At the time of writing, Bitcoin was down by 1.29% to $7,105.3. A mixed start to the day saw Bitcoin rise to an early morning high $7,227.4 before falling to a low $7,100.0.
Bitcoin left the major support and resistance levels untested early on.
Elsewhere, it was a mixed start to the day for the majors. Stellar’s lumen bucked the trend once more, rising by 0.17%.
It was red for the rest, however, with Bitcoin Cash SV sliding by 3.73% to lead the way down.
For the Bitcoin Day Ahead
Bitcoin would need to move back through to $7,210 levels to support a run at the first major resistance level at $7,374.0.
Support from the broader market would be needed, however, to break through to $7,300 levels.
Barring a broad-based crypto rally, Tuesday’s high $7,386.3 and first major resistance level would likely limit any upside.
Failure to move back through to $7,200 levels could see Bitcoin slide deeper into the red.
A fall back through the morning low $7,100.0 would bring the first major support level at $7,034.90 into play.
Barring an extended crypto sell-off, however, Bitcoin should steer clear of sub-$7,000 support levels on the day
