The Crypto Daily – The Movers and Shakers – August 10th, 2020

Bitcoin, BTC to USD, fell by 0.75% on Sunday. Partially reversing a 1.59% gain from Saturday, Bitcoin ended the week up by 5.57% to $11,675.3.

It was a mixed start to the day. Bitcoin rose to an early morning intraday high $11,788 before hitting reverse.

Bitcoin fell through the first major support level at $11,593 before finding support.

A late move back through to $11,600 levels cut the deficit on the day.

The near-term bullish trend remained intact, supported by the latest move through to $11,000 levels. 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 mixed day for the majors on Sunday.

Stellar’s Lumen and Tezos bucked the trend, with gains of 2.03% and 8.98% respectively.

This Morning

Cardano’s ADA bucked the trend early on, falling by 0.16%.

It was a bullish start for the rest of the majors, however, with Tezos up by 2.71% to lead the way.

For the Bitcoin Day Ahead

Bitcoin would need to avoid a fall through the $11,664 pivot to support a run at the first major resistance level at $11,799.

Support from the broader market would be needed, however, for Bitcoin to break out from the morning high $11,789.

Barring an extended crypto rally, the first major resistance level and the morning high would likely cap any upside.

In the event of a crypto breakout, Bitcoin could eye the second major resistance level at $11,922.

A fall through the $11,664 pivot level would bring the first major support level at $11,541 into play.

Barring another extended crypto sell-off, however, Bitcoin should avoid the second major support level at $11,406.
