The Crypto Daily – Movers and Shakers – July 20th, 2020
Bitcoin, BTC to USD, rose by 0.46% on Sunday. Following on from a 0.24% gain on Saturday, Bitcoin ended the week down by 0.95% to $9,231.2.
It was a mixed start to the day. Bitcoin rose to an early morning high $9,194.4 before hitting reverse.
Falling short of the major resistance levels, Bitcoin fell to a late morning intraday low $9,111.8 before finding support.
Bitcoin fell through the first major support level at $9,133.77 before rallying to a final hour intraday high $9,299.0.
Bitcoin broke through the first major resistance level at $9,230.77 and second major resistance level at $9,272.43 before pulling back.
The late pullback saw Bitcoin fall back through the second major resistance level to sub-$9,240 levels.
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.

Bitcoin Cash SV (-0.52%), Ripple’s XRP (-0.20%), Stellar’s Lumen (-0.48%), and Tezos (-0.95%) bucked the trend with modest losses.

For the Bitcoin Day Ahead
Bitcoin would need to move back through the $9,214 pivot to support a run at the first major resistance level at $9,316.2.
Support from the broader market would be needed, however, for Bitcoin to break out from Sunday’s high $9,299.0.
Barring an extended crypto rally, the first major resistance level and Sunday’s high would likely cap any upside.
In the event of a crypto breakout, Bitcoin could test the second major resistance level at $9,401.2 before any pullback.
Failure to move back through the $9,214 pivot level would bring the first major support level at $9,129.0 into play.
Barring an extended crypto sell-off, however, Bitcoin should avoid the 23.6% FIB of $8,900. The second major resistance level at $9,026.8 should limit any downside.
