The Crypto Daily – Movers and Shakers – September 16th, 2020

It’s a particularly bearish start to the day for the majors. Failure to break through the day’s pivot levels will bring the day’s support levels into play.

Bitcoin, BTC to USD, rose by 1.00% on Tuesday. Following on from a 3.47% rally on Monday, Bitcoin ended the day at $10,797.9.

It was a choppy start to the day. Bitcoin rose to an early morning high $10,840.0 before sliding to a late morning intraday low $10,645.0.

Steering well clear of the first major support level at $10,375, Bitcoin rallied to a mid-day intraday high $10,944.0.

Bitcoin broke through the first major resistance level at $10,889 to test resistance at $11,000.

Easing back in the afternoon, Bitcoin slipped to $10,720 levels before briefly revisiting $10,890 levels.

Coming up against the first major resistance level at $10,889, Bitcoin slipped back to end the day at sub-$10,800 levels.

The near-term bullish trend remained intact, in spite of the latest pullback to sub-$10,000. For the bears, Bitcoin would need to slide through the 62% FIB of $6,400 to form a near-term bearish trend.

The Rest of the Pack

Across the rest of the majors, it was another mixed day on Tuesday.

Bitcoin Cash ABC joined Bitcoin in the green, with a gain of 3.69% to buck the trend.

It was a bearish day for the rest of the pack.

Binance Coin and Tron’s TRX led the way down, with losses of 13.34% and 7.84% respectively.

Cardano’s ADA (-3.63%), Ethereum (-3.46%), Stellar’s Lumen (-2.93%), and Tezos (-4.23%) also struggled.

Bitcoin Cash SV (-0.12%), EOS (-0.92%), Litecoin (-1.59%), Monero’s XMR (-0.69%), and Ripple’s XRP (-0.92%) saw relatively modest losses on the day.

In the current week, the crypto total market fell to a Monday low $314.21bn before rising to a Tuesday high $337.61bn. At the time of writing, the total market cap stood at $322.44bn.

Bitcoin’s dominance rose from a Monday low 59.64% to an early Wednesday high 61.39%. At the time of writing, Bitcoin’s dominance stood at 61.26%.

This Morning

At the time of writing, Bitcoin was down by 0.67% to $10,724.9. A bearish start to the day saw Bitcoin fall from an early morning high $10,804.0 to a low $10,688.0.

Bitcoin left the major support and resistance levels untested early on.

Elsewhere, it was a particularly bearish start to the day for the broader market.

At the time of writing, Binance Coin and Bitcoin Cash ABC were down by 3.16% and by 3.06% to lead the way down.

Bitcoin Cash SV bucked the trend early on, rising by 1.65%.

For the Bitcoin Day Ahead

Bitcoin would need to move through the $10,795 pivot level to support a run at the first major resistance level at $10,946.

An early move back through to $10,800 levels would be needed, however, for Bitcoin to return to $10,900 levels.

Barring an extended crypto rally, the first major resistance level and Tuesday’s high $10,944.0 would likely cap any upside.

In the event of a crypto breakout, Bitcoin could test the second major resistance level at $11,094 before any pullback.

Failure to move through the $10,795 pivot would bring the first major support level at $10,647 into play.

Barring an extended crypto sell-off, however, Bitcoin should steer clear of sub-$10,500 levels. The second major support level sits at $10,496.
