The Crypto Daily – Movers and Shakers – September 23rd, 2020It’s a mixed start to the day for the majors. A Bitcoin move through to $10,600 levels should support the broader market.
Bitcoin, BTC to USD, rose by 1.09% on Tuesday. Partially reversing a 4.57% slide from Monday, Bitcoin ended the day at $10,549.0.
It was a mixed start to the day. Bitcoin fell to an early morning intraday low $10,377.0 before making a move.
Steering clear of the first major support level at $10,171, Bitcoin rose to a late intraday high $10,597.0.
Falling well short of the first major resistance level at $10,850, Bitcoin eased back to wrap up the day at sub-$10,550 levels.
The near-term bullish trend remained intact, supported by the latest pullback. For the bears, Bitcoin would need to slide through the 62% FIB of $6,400 to form a near-term bearish trend.
The Rest of the Pack
Across the rest of the majors, it was a bullish day on Tuesday.
Binance Coin and Bitcoin Cash SV rallied by 4.02% and by 5.84% respectively to lead the way.
Bitcoin Cash ABC (+2.05%), Cardano’s ADA (+1.90%), Ethereum (+1.15%), and Litecoin (+3.15%) also made solid gains.
Chainlink (+0.26%), Crypto.com Coin (+0.26%), and Ripple’s XRP (+0.86%) trailed the front runners, however.
At the start of the week, the crypto total market rose to a Monday high $334.04bn before sliding to a Monday low $306.69bn. At the time of writing, the total market cap stood at $316.17bn.

It was a bullish start for the rest of the majors, however.

For the Bitcoin Day Ahead
Bitcoin would need to avoid a fall through the $10,508 pivot level to support a run at the first major resistance level at $10,638.
Support from the broader market would be needed, however, for Bitcoin to break out from Tuesday’s high $10,597.
Barring an extended crypto rally, the first major resistance level and Tuesday’s high would likely cap any upside.
In the event of a crypto breakout, Bitcoin could test resistance at $10,700 before any pullback. Bitcoin would likely come up short of the second major resistance level at $10,728, however.
Failure to avoid a fall through the $10,508 pivot would bring the first major support level at $10,418 into play.
Barring an extended crypto sell-off, however, Bitcoin should steer clear of sub-$10,300 levels and the second major support level at $10,288.
