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



Bitcoin update

On June 15, BTC reached a high of $41,330. The high was made inside the 0.382 Fib retracement resistance level at $41,250. Bitcoin has been moving downwards since. On June 16, it created a bearish candlestick and fell to a low of $38,116 in the process.

Regardless of the drop, technical indicators are providing a bullish outlook. The MACD’s momentum bar has created three bars in the positive territory. Both the RSI and Stochastic oscillator are increasing; the former is above 50 while the latter has made a bullish cross. 



These signs point to an eventual breakout above the aforementioned resistance area. If this occurs, the next resistance would likely be found at the 0.5 Fib retracement level at $44,755.
