BeInCrypto presents our daily morning roundup of crypto news and market changes that you might have missed while you were asleep.
BTC has been moving upwards since July 20. After creating eight successive bullish candlesticks, it finally created a doji candlestick with a slightly bearish close on July 29.
This was the third failed breakout attempt above the $40,500 horizontal resistance area, which is also the 0.382 Fib retracement resistance level.
Despite the rejection, technical indicators in the daily time frame are still bullish. The Stochastic oscillator made a bullish cross, the RSI moved above 70, and the MACD is nearly positive.
The next resistance area is found at $47,800. This is the 0.618 Fib retracement resistance level.
The total cryptocurrency market cap has fallen 1% back to the $1.59 trillion level. While bitcoin is down 4.2% on the day, Ethereum has actually added 1.2% in the past 24 hours. The cryptocurrency top-100 list is a mixed bag today, though most altcoins are experiencing losses.
Bitcoin Cash ABC (BCHA) is the biggest gainer of the day thus far. BCHA is up 30% on the day and is trading for $36.32. In the past week, BCHA has added over 42% in value and has now moved back into the top-100 by market cap.
SafeMoon (SAFEMOON) is the day’s biggest loser, down 19.4% in the past 24 hours. SAFEMOON has fallen to the $0.0000021 level, a three-month low price for the token.
