The Crypto Daily – Movers and Shakers – May 30th, 2021

Bitcoin, BTC to USD, fell by 3.05% on Saturday. Following a 7.46% slide from Friday, Bitcoin ended the day at $34,574.0.

A bullish start to the day saw Bitcoin rise to a mid-morning intraday high $37,381.0 before hitting reverse.

Falling short of the first major resistance level at $38,126, Bitcoin slid to a late afternoon intraday low $33,617.0.

The extended sell-off saw Bitcoin fall through the first major support level at $33,958 before briefly revisiting $35,000 levels.

A bearish end to the day, however, left Bitcoin at sub-$35,000 levels.

The near-term bullish trend remained intact in spite of the recent 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 move through the pivot level at $35,191 to bring the first major resistance level at $36,764 into play.

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

Barring a broad-based crypto rally, the first major resistance level and Saturday’s high $37,381.0 would likely cap any upside.

In the event of an extended crypto rally, Bitcoin could test resistance at $40,000 levels. The second major resistance level sits at $38,955.

Failure to move through the pivot at $35,191 would bring the first major support level at $33,000 into play.

Barring another extended sell-off on the day, Bitcoin should steer clear of sub-$30,000 levels. The second major support level at $31,427 should limit the downside.
