The near-term bearish trend, formed at late June 2019’s swing hi $13,764.0, remained firmly intact, reaffirmed by the March swing lo $4,000.
For the bulls, Bitcoin would need to break out from $10,000 levels to form a near-term bullish trend.

Bitcoin Cash SV (+5.11%), Ripple’s XRP (+5.60%), Stellar’s Lumen (+5.04%), and Tron’s TRX (+5.43%) trailed the front runners.

Bitcoin left the major support and resistance levels untested early on.
Elsewhere, it was also a bullish start to the day.
Bitcoin Cash ABC and Bitcoin Cash SV were up by 5.92% and by 10.58% to lead the way.
Bitcoin would need to avoid sub-$8,500 levels to support a run at the first major resistance level at $9,229.47.
Support from the broader market would be needed, however, for Bitcoin to break through to $9,000 levels.
Barring an extended crypto rally, resistance at $9,000 would likely leave Bitcoin short of the first major resistance level.
In the event of another breakout, the second major resistance level at $9,680.23 and $10,000 levels would come into play.
Failure to avoid sub-$8,500 levels could see Bitcoin struggle later in the day.
A fall back through to sub-$8,470 levels would bring the first major support level at $8,016.47 into play.
Barring a crypto meltdown, however, Bitcoin should steer of sub-$8,000 support levels.
