The Crypto Daily – Movers and Shakers – July 24th, 2021

Bitcoin, BTC to USD, rallied by 4.11% on Friday. Following a 0.52% gain on Thursday, Bitcoin ended the day at $33,650.0.

After a mixed start to the day, Bitcoin fell to a late afternoon intraday low $32,020.0 before making a move.

Steering clear of the first major support level at $30,168, Bitcoin rallied to a late intraday high $33,625.3.

Bitcoin broke through the first major resistance level at $32,698 and the second major resistance level at $33,097 to end the day at $33,650 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 avoid the $33,098 pivot to bring the first major resistance level at $34,177 into play.

Support from the broader market would be needed for Bitcoin to break out from this morning’s high $33,783.0.

Barring a broad-based crypto rally, the first major resistance level and resistance at $34,500 would likely cap any upside.

In the event of an extended crypto rally, Bitcoin could test resistance at $36,000 before any pullback. The second major resistance level sits at $34,704.

A fall through the $33,098 pivot would bring the first major support level at $32,572 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 $31,493 should limit the downside.
