Bitcoin and Ethereum – Weekly Technical Analysis – June 21st, 2021

Bitcoin

Bitcoin, BTC to USD, slid by 8.64% in the week ending 20th June. Reversing a 9.00% gain from the previous week, Bitcoin ended the week at $35,631.0.

A bullish start to the week saw Bitcoin rise to a Tuesday intraweek high $41,273.0 before hitting reverse.

Falling short of the 38.2% FIB of $41,592 and the first major resistance level at $41,890, Bitcoin slid to a Sunday intraweek low $33,411.0.

Bitcoin fell through the first major support level at $33,591 before a partial recovery to $35,600 levels.

5 days in the red that included a 5.85% slide on Friday delivered the downside for the week.

For the week ahead

Bitcoin would need to move through the $36,772 pivot to support a run the first major resistance level at $40,132.

Support from the broader market would be needed for Bitcoin to break back through to $40,000 levels.

Barring an extended crypto rally, last week’s high $41,273.0 and the 38.2% FIB of $41,592 would likely cap any upside.

In the event of an extended breakout, Bitcoin could test resistance at $45,000 before any pullback. The second major resistance level sits at $44,634.

Failure to move through the $36,772 pivot would bring the first major support level at $32,270 into play.

Barring another extended sell-off, Bitcoin should steer clear of sub-$30,000 levels. The second major support level sits at $28,910.

At the time of writing, Bitcoin was down by 0.55% to $35,436.0. A mixed start to the week saw Bitcoin rise to an early Monday high $35,832.0 before falling to a low $35,332.0.

Bitcoin left the major support and resistance levels untested at the start of the week.
