The Crypto Daily – Movers and Shakers – July 12th, 2020

Bitcoin, BTC to USD, fell by 0.63% on Saturday. Reversing a 0.60% gain from Friday, Bitcoin ended the day at $9,246.3.

It was a bearish start to the day for Bitcoin. Bitcoin fell from an early morning intraday high $9,311.8 to a late morning intraday low $9,200.1 before finding support.

Steering clear of the first major support level at $9,193.6, Bitcoin moved back to a late high $9,263.0 before easing back.

The near-term bullish trend remained intact in spite of the early July pullback to sub-$9,000 levels. For the bears, Bitcoin would need to slide through the 62% FIB of $6,400 to form a near-term bearish trend.

For the Bitcoin Day Ahead

Bitcoin would need to avoid a fall back through the $9,253 pivot to support a run at the first major resistance level at $9,305.37.

Support from the broader market would be needed, however, for Bitcoin to break back through to $9,300 levels.

Barring an extended crypto rally, the first major resistance level would likely cap any upside.

In the event of a crypto breakout, Bitcoin should break through the second major resistance level at $9,364.43 before any pullback.

Failure to avoid a fall back through the $9,253 pivot level would bring the first major support level at $9,193.67 into play.

Barring an extended crypto sell-off, however, Bitcoin should avoid sub-$9,100 levels. The second major resistance level at $9,141.03 should limit any downside.
