The Crypto Daily – Movers and Shakers – July 21st, 2021

Bitcoin, BTC to USD, slid by 3.42% on Tuesday. Following a 3.00% decline on Monday, Bitcoin ended the day at $29,809.0.

A mixed start to the day saw Bitcoin rise to an early morning intraday high $31,079.0 before hitting reverse.

Falling short of the first major resistance level at $31,695, Bitcoin slid to an early afternoon intraday low $29,313.0.

Bitcoin fell through the first major support level at $30,267 and the second major support level at $29,670.

Steering clear of sub-$29,000 levels, however, Bitcoin revisited $30,000 levels before falling back.

The partial recovery saw Bitcoin move back through the second major support level to end the day at $29,800 levels.

The near-term bullish trend remained intact, in spite of the latest return to $29,000 levels. For the bears, Bitcoin would need a sustained fall through the 62% FIB of $27,237 to form a near-term bearish trend.

For the Bitcoin Day Ahead

Bitcoin would need to move through the $30,067 pivot to bring the first major resistance level at $30,821 into play.

Support from the broader market would be needed for Bitcoin to break out from $30,500 levels.

Barring a broad-based crypto rally, the first major resistance level and Tuesday’s high $31,079.0 would likely cap any upside.

In the event of an extended crypto rally, Bitcoin could test resistance at $32,000 before any pullback. The second major resistance level sits at $31,833.

Failure to move through the $30,067 pivot would bring the first major support level at $29,055 into play.

Barring another extended sell-off on the day, Bitcoin should steer clear of sub-$28,000 levels. The second major support level at $28,301 should limit the downside.
