Bitcoin fell by 1.90% on Monday. Following on from Sunday’s 8.55% tumble, Bitcoin ended the day at $8,555.1.

A mixed start to the day saw Bitcoin fall to a mid-morning low $8,470.6 before finding support.

Steering clear of the major support levels, Bitcoin rallied to a late morning intraday high $9,142.0.

Falling short of the first major resistance level at $9,487.13, Bitcoin slid to a late afternoon intraday low $8,200.0.

Steering clear of the first major support level at $8,029.13, Bitcoin recovered to $8,500 levels to limit the loss.

The near-term bearish trend, formed at late June 2019’s swing hi $13,764.0, remained firmly intact, reaffirmed by the March swing lo $4,000.

For the bulls, Bitcoin would need to break out from $10,000 levels to form a near-term bullish trend.

The Rest of the Pack

Across the rest of the majors, it was a mixed day for the rest of the pack.

Tezos slid by 4.92% to lead the way down.

Binance Coin (-1.76%), EOS (-1.87%), Ripple’s XRP (-2.37%), Stellar’s Lumen (-3.56%), and Tron’s TRX (-2.02%) weren’t far behind.

Ethereum (-0.92%), and Litecoin (-1.38%) saw relatively modest losses.

Bitcoin Cash ABC (+0.81%), Bitcoin Cash SV (+2.47%), Cardano’s ADA (+0.40%), and Monero’s XMR (+0.93%) bucked the trend.

Through the start of the week, the crypto total market cap rose to a Monday high $245.2bn before sliding to a low $229.41bn. At the time of writing, the total market cap stood at $235.41bn.

This Morning

At the time of writing, Bitcoin was up by 0.96% to $8,637.3. A bullish start to the day saw Bitcoin rise from an early morning low $8,526.4 to a high $8,658.5.

Bitcoin left the major support and resistance levels untested early on.

Elsewhere, Cardano’s ADA continued to find strong support, with a 1.45% gain to lead the way.

For the Bitcoin Day Ahead

Bitcoin would need to break back through to $8,700 levels to bring the first major resistance level at $9,064.73 into play.

Support from the broader market would be needed, however, for Bitcoin to break back through to $9,000 levels.

Barring a broad-based crypto rally, resistance at $9,000 would likely pin Bitcoin back on the day.

In the event of rebound, the first major resistance level at $9,064.73 would likely limit any upside on the day.

Failure to break back through to $8,700 levels could see Bitcoin fall back into the red.

A fall through back through the morning low $8,526.4 would bring the first major support level at $8,122.73 into play.

In the event of another extended sell-off, Bitcoin should steer clear of sub-$8,000 levels.
