The Crypto Daily – Movers and Shakers – July 22nd, 2020

Bitcoin, BTC to USD, rallied by 2.43% on Tuesday. Reversing a 0.56% decline from Monday, Bitcoin ended the day at $9.402.0.

It was a bullish start to the day. Bitcoin rallied from an early morning intraday low $9,174.4 to an early afternoon intraday high $9,457.2.

Bitcoin broke through the major resistance levels before falling back to $9,340 levels.

The pullback saw Bitcoin fall through the third major resistance level at $9,358.03 before returning to $9,400 levels.

Resistance at $9,400 capped the upside late in the day.

The near-term bullish trend remained intact in spite of the early July pullback to sub-$9,000 levels. For the bears, Bitcoin would need to slide through the 62% FIB of $6,400 to form a near-term bearish trend.

BTC/USD 22/07/20 Daily Chart

For the Bitcoin Day Ahead

Bitcoin would need to avoid a fall through the $9,345 pivot to support a run at the first major resistance level at $9,515.

Support from the broader market would be needed, however, for Bitcoin to break out from Tuesday’s high $9,457.2.

Barring an extended crypto rally, the first major resistance level would likely cap any upside.

In the event of a crypto breakout, Bitcoin could test the second major resistance level at $9,627 before any pullback.

Failure to avoid a fall through the $9,345 pivot level would bring the first major support level at $9,232 into play.

Barring an extended crypto sell-off, however, Bitcoin should avoid sub-$9,100 levels. The second major resistance level sits at $9,062.
