How the crypto market fared while you slept

BTC has been increasing since bouncing above the $31,400 horizontal support area on June 22.

So far, it has managed to reach a high of $36,600, doing so on June 29.

The upward movement was preceded by significant bullish divergence in the MACD, RSI, and Stochastic oscillator.

However, neither has a bullish reading yet. The RSI is just below 50 and the MACD signal line is still negative.

Furthermore, the Stochastic oscillator has already made a bearish cross.

The BTC price fell yesterday but did not create a bearish engulfing candlestick.

Nevertheless, it seems to have resumed its downward movement today.

The main resistance area is at $40,550. This is a horizontal resistance and the 0.382 Fib retracement level.
