The Crypto Daily – Movers and Shakers – August 5th, 2020

 

Bitcoin, BTC to USD, fell by 0.38% on Tuesday. Partially reversing a 1.52% gain from Monday, Bitcoin ended the day at $11,184.0.

It was a bullish start to the day. Bitcoin rose to an early morning intraday high $11,396.0 before hitting reverse.

Falling short of the first major resistance level at $11,474, Bitcoin slid to an early afternoon intraday low $11,003.0.

Steering clear of the first major support level at $10,961, Bitcoin briefly revisited $11,260 levels before falling back into the red.

The near-term bullish trend remained intact, supported by the latest move through to $11,000 levels. For the bears, Bitcoin would need to slide through the 62% FIB of $6,400 to form a near-term bearish trend.

Binance Coin (+0.95%), Bitcoin Cash SC (+5.76%), Cardano’s ADA (+4.42%), Ethereum (+0.92%), Stellar’s Lumen (+5.51%), and Tron’s TRX (+2.35%) also found support.

For the Bitcoin Day Ahead

Bitcoin would need to move through the $11,194 pivot to support a run at the first major resistance level at $11,386.

Support from the broader market would be needed, however, for Bitcoin to break back through to $11,300 levels.

Barring an extended crypto rally, the first major resistance level and Tuesday’s high $11,396 would likely cap any upside.

In the event of a crypto breakout, Bitcoin could eye the second major resistance level at $11,587. Expect plenty of resistance at $11,500, however.

Failure to move through the $11,194 pivot level would bring the first major support level at $10,993 into play.

Barring an extended crypto sell-off, however, Bitcoin should steer clear of sub-$10,800 levels on the day. The second major support level at $10,801 should limit any downside.
