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.

The Rest of the Pack

Across the rest of the majors, it was a bearish day on Saturday.

Bitcoin Cash ABC (-4.04%), Bitcoin Cash SV (-4.81%), EOS (-4.72%), and Litecoin (-4.39%) led the way down.

Binance Coin (-3.48%), Cardano’s ADA (-3.08%), Ethereum (-3.97%), Ripple’s XRP (-3.46%), Stellar’s Lumen (-3.28%), Tezos (-3.42%), and Tron’s TRX (-3.42%) were close behind, however.

For the Bitcoin Day Ahead

Bitcoin would need to move through to $7,200 levels to bring the first major resistance level at $7,260.17 back into play.

Support from the broader market would be needed, however, for Bitcoin to break out from the morning high $7,210.2.

Barring another broad-based crypto rally, the first major resistance level and Sunday’s high $7,285.4 would likely cap any upside.

In the event of a broad-based crypto rally, the second major resistance level at $7,387.03 would come into play.

Failure to move through to $7,200 levels could see Bitcoin hit reverse.

A fall through to sub-$7,150 levels would bring the first major support level at $7,031.67 into play.

Barring a crypto meltdown, however, Bitcoin should steer of sub-$7,000 levels.
