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

Bitcoin update

On July 15, BTC reached a low of $31,113. This came as a result of a significant bearish candlestick, which invalidated the bullish hammer from July 14. BTC touched the $31,300 horizontal support area for the sixth time (green icon).

Technical indicators are bearish. The MACD has given a bearish reversal signal, the RSI is below 50, and the Stochastic oscillator has made a bearish cross.

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