The Rest of the Pack

It’s been a bullish morning for the broader crypto market.

Ripple’s XRP was up by 15.32% to lead the way.

Binance Coin (+9.43%), Cardano’s ADA (+8.01%), Chainlink (+9.72%), and Litecoin (+7.43%) also made solid gains.

Bitcoin Cash SV (+5.52%), Crypto.com Coin (+4.45%), Ethereum (+5.82%), and Polkadot (+3.53%) trailed the front runners, however.

Through the early hours, the crypto total market fell to an early morning low $1,242 before rising to a high $1,363bn. At the time of writing, the total market cap stood at $1,339bn.

Bitcoin’s dominance rose to an early high 48.32% before falling to a low 47.19%. At the time of writing, Bitcoin’s dominance stood at 47.45%.

For the Day Ahead

Bitcoin would need to continue to avoid the $31,729 pivot to support another run at the first major resistance level at $34,211.

Support from the broader market would be needed, however, for Bitcoin to break back through to $34,200 levels.

Barring an extended 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 levels. The second major resistance level sits at $35,850.

A fall through the $31,729 pivot would bring the first major support level at $30,090 into play.

Barring an extended sell-off through the afternoon, however, Bitcoin should steer clear of sub-$29,000 levels and the 62% FIB of $27,237. The second major support level sits at $27,608.

Looking beyond the support and resistance levels, the 50 EMA narrowed on the 100 and the 200 through the morning, supporting the mid-morning rally.

We have also seen the 100 EMA flatten on the 200 EMA adding further support.

A further narrowing of the 50 EMA on the 100 EMA would bring sub-$35,000 levels into play.

Key going into the afternoon, however, would be a move back through the morning high $34,486 to $34,500 levels.
