The Crypto Daily – Movers and Shakers – 02/02/20It’s a bearish start to the day. A Bitcoin move back through to $9,400 levels would signal a crypto market rebound.
Bitcoin rose by 0.43% on Saturday. Partially reversing a 1.53% fall from Friday, Bitcoin ended the day at $9,408.0.
A bullish start to the day saw Bitcoin rise to an early morning intraday high $9,476.4 before hitting reverse.
Falling short of the first major resistance level at $9,518.1, Bitcoin slid to a mid-day intraday low $9,318.0.
Steering clear of the 38.2% FIB of $9,260.0 and the first major support level at $9,218.5, Bitcoin recovered to an afternoon high $9,444.3 before easing back.
The near-term bearish trend, formed at late June’s swing hi $13,764.0, remained firmly intact, however, in spite of the January rally.
For the bulls, Bitcoin would need to break out from $11,000 levels to form a near-term bullish trend.
The Rest of the Pack
Across the rest of the top 10 cryptos, it was a bullish day for the crypto majors.
Cardano’s ADA and Litecoin led the way on the day, rallying by 4.07% and 4.02% respectively.
Bitcoin Cash SV (+2.72%), Ethereum (+2.10%), and Tron’s TRX (+2.59%) also found strong support.
Bitcoin Cash ABC (+1.41%), EOS (+0.11%), Monero’s XMR (+1.46%), Ripple’s XRP (+0.71%), and Stellar’s Lumen (+1.63%) trailed the front runners.
Binance Coin bucked the trend, closing out the day flat.
Through the current week, the crypto total market cap rose from a Monday low $237.76bn to a late Thursday high $263.46bn. At the time of writing, the total market cap stood at $257.55bn.

Elsewhere, it was also a bearish start to the day for the cryptos.
Bitcoin Cash SV (-1.70%) and Litecoin (-1.60%) led the way down early on.
Monero’s XMR (-0.90%) and Stellar’s Lumen (-0.96%) saw modest losses relative to the rest of the pack.
For the Bitcoin Day Ahead
Bitcoin would need to move back through to $9,400 levels to support a run at the first major resistance level at $9,483.60
Support from the broader market would be needed, however, for Bitcoin to break out from Saturday’s high $9,476.4.
Barring another broad-based crypto rally, the first major resistance level would likely leave Bitcoin short of Saturday’s high $9,519.9.
In the event of another breakout, the second major resistance level at $9,559.2 will likely come into play.
Failure to move back through to $9,400 levels could see Bitcoin fall deeper into the red.
A fall through the morning low $9,350.0 would bring the first major support level at $9,325.2 into play.
Barring a crypto meltdown, however, Bitcoin should steer clear of the 38.2% FIB of $9,260 and second major support level at $9.242.4.
