The Crypto Daily – Movers and Shakers – July 4th, 2021

Bitcoin, BTC to USD, rose by 2.55% on Saturday. Following a 0.88% gain on Friday, Bitcoin ended the day at $34,682.0.

A mixed start to the day saw Bitcoin fall to an early morning intraday low $33,350.0 before making a move.

Steering clear of the first major support level at $33,016, Bitcoin rallied to a late afternoon intraday high $34,948.0.

Bitcoin broke through the first major resistance level at $34,299 and the second major resistance level at $34,783.

Coming up against resistance at $35,000, however, Bitcoin fell back through the second major resistance level to sub-$34,500 levels before steadying.

The near-term bullish trend remained intact in spite of the latest slide back to sub-$30,000 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 $34,327 pivot to bring the first major resistance level at $35,303 into play.

Support from the broader market would be needed for Bitcoin to break back through to $35,000 levels.

Barring a broad-based crypto rebound, the first major resistance level would likely cap any upside.

In the event of an extended crypto rally, Bitcoin could test resistance at $37,000 levels before any pullback. The second major resistance level sits at $35,925.

A fall through the $34,327 pivot would bring the first major support level at $33,705 into play.

Barring another extended sell-off on the day, Bitcoin should steer clear of sub-$32,000 levels. The second major support level at $32,729 should limit the downside.
