The Crypto Daily – Movers and Shakers – July 23rd, 2021

Bitcoin, BTC to USD, rose by 0.52% on Thursday. Following a 7.85% rally on Wednesday, Bitcoin ended the day at $32,320.0.

A range-bound start to the day saw Bitcoin fall to a late morning intraday low $31,735.0 before making a move.

Steering clear of the first major support level at $30,168, Bitcoin rallied to a late afternoon intraday high $32,610.0.

Falling short of the first major resistance level at $33,495, Bitcoin fell back to sub-$32,100 levels and into the red.

Steering clear of sub-$32,000 levels, however, moved back through to $32,300 levels to deliver the upside on the day.

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.

Bitcoin Cash SV fell by 0.39% to buck the trend on the day.

Binance Coin (+0.09%), Cardano’s ADA (+1.34%), Ethereum (+1.43%), and Litecoin (+2.44%) trailed the front runners, however.

For the Bitcoin Day Ahead

Bitcoin would need to avoid the $32,222 pivot to bring the first major resistance level at $32,708 into play.

Support from the broader market would be needed for Bitcoin to break out from Thursday’s high $32,610.0.

Barring a broad-based crypto rally, the first major resistance level and resistance at $33,000 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 $33,097.

A fall through the $32,222 pivot would bring the first major support level at $31,833 into play.

Barring another extended sell-off on the day, Bitcoin should steer clear of sub-$31,000 levels. The second major support level at $31,347 should limit the downside.
