BeInCrypto presents our daily morning roundup of crypto news and market changes that you might have missed while you were asleep.



Bitcoin update

BTC began July 14 by decreasing considerably. It initially fell to a low of $31,550, nearly touching the horizontal support area of $31,300. 

However, it bounced back almost immediately and proceeded to reach a close of $32,820. The movement created a long lower wick and a bullish hammer candlestick (green icon).



Despite the bullish candlestick, technical indicators in the daily time frame are bearish. This is especially evident by the bearish cross in the Stochastic oscillator (red icon).

The main resistance area is found at $40,550. This target is the 0.382 Fib retracement level and a horizontal resistance area.
