BeInCrypto presents our daily morning roundup of crypto news and market changes that you might have missed while you were asleep.
Bitcoin reached a high of $41,330 before falling slightly towards the current price of $40,230. The high was made inside the $41,250 resistance area, which is the 0.382 Fib retracement level.
Despite the drop, technical indicators are firmly bullish. The MACD has reached the positive territory and both the RSI and Stochastic oscillator are increasing. The former is above 50 while the latter has made a bullish cross. Therefore, an eventual breakout is likely.
If a breakout occurs, the next resistance would be at $44,755. This target is the 0.5 Fib retracement resistance level.
Despite some healthy growth in the price of bitcoin (BTC) yesterday, the total cryptocurrency market cap is down slightly to $1.72 trillion today.
In the past 24 hours, no asset in the top-25 has measured any positive gains. Shiba Inu (SHIB) is today’s top gainer. SHIB is up by over 24% in the past 24 hours, moving it back into the #29 rank.
Internet Computer (ICP), on the other hand, is the biggest loser of the day. ICP is down 12% in the past 24 hours and has suffered a total 28% loss in the past week. ICP managed to reach highs near the $500 mark in early May but has since sunk to the $58 level.
