The Crypto Daily – Movers and Shakers – July 19th, 2021

Bitcoin, BTC to USD, rose by 0.83% on Sunday. Following a 0.42% gain on Saturday, Bitcoin ended the week down by 7.09% to $31,820.0.

A bullish start to the day saw Bitcoin rally to an early morning intraday high $32,453.0 before hitting reverse.

Bitcoin fell through the first major support level at $31,180 before briefly revisiting $31,900 levels.

For the Bitcoin Day Ahead

Bitcoin would need to avoid a fall back through the $31,794 pivot to bring the first major resistance level at $32,478 into play.

Support from the broader market would be needed for Bitcoin to break back through to $32,400 levels.

Barring a broad-based crypto rally, the first major resistance level and Sunday’s high $32,453.0 would likely cap any upside.

In the event of an extended crypto rally, Bitcoin could test resistance at $33,500 before any pullback. The second major resistance level sits at $33,137.

A fall back through the $31,795 pivot would bring the first major support level at $31,136 into play.

Barring another extended sell-off on the day, Bitcoin should steer clear of sub-$30,000 levels. The second major support level at $30,453 should limit the downside.
