The Rest of the Pack
Across the rest of the top 10 cryptos, it was a mixed day for the majors on Saturday.
Litecoin (+0.69%), Binance Coin (+0.45%), Ethereum (+0.43%) and Ripple’s XRP (+0.36%) closed out the day in the green.
The rest of the pack joined Bitcoin in the red, with EOS leading the way, falling by 0.55%.
For the current week, it was also a mixed bag.
Litecoin and EOS rose by 1.35% and by 0.74% respectively, while the rest of the pack saw red.
Bitcoin Cash SV and Stellar’s Lumen led the way down, with losses of 5.61% and 4.81% respectively.
Through the week, the total crypto market cap recovered from a Monday low $208.5 to a Tuesday high $226.12bn before easing back. At the time of writing, the total market cap stood at $217.32bn.
In spite of Bitcoin’s pullback in the week, Bitcoin’s dominance continued to hover at 67% levels.
At the time of writing, Bitcoin was down by 0.88% to $8,090.9. A bearish start to the day saw Bitcoin slide from an early morning high $8,183.2 to a low $8,050.2.
The early sell-off saw Bitcoin slide through the first major support level at $8,064.73 before finding support.
Things were no better elsewhere, with the rest of the major also seeing red in the early hours.
Binance Coin, EOS, and Litecoin led the way down. Litecoin was down by 1.18%, with EOS and Binance Coin down by 1.15% and 1.02% respectively.
For the Bitcoin Day Ahead
Bitcoin would need to move back through to $8,140 levels to support a run at $8,200 levels later in the day.
Support from the broader market would be needed, however, for Bitcoin to break through the first major resistance level at $8,235.53.
Barring a broad-based crypto rebound, Saturday’s high $8,210.8 and the first major resistance level would cap any upside.
Failure to move back through to $8,140 levels could see Bitcoin see red for a 4th consecutive day.
A fall back through the first major resistance level at $8,064.73 would bring the second major resistance level at $7,966.97 into play.
Barring a crypto meltdown, however, Bitcoin should steer clear of sub-$7,900 levels on the day.
