Through the week, the crypto total market cap rose from Tuesday current week low $196.98bn to a Saturday high $220.28bn. At the time of writing, the total market cap stood at $219.55bn.
While Bitcoin’s dominance continued to hover at sub-64% levels, there had been an upward trend before easing back on Saturday. At the time of writing, Bitcoin’s dominance stood at 63.6%.

Bitcoin left the major support and resistance levels untested early on.
Elsewhere, it was a mixed start to the day.
Bitcoin Cash ABC (+1.12%), Bitcoin Cash SV (+2.14%), Monero’s XMR (+1.34%), and Tron’s TRX (+1.16%) led the way.
Binance Coin (-0.11%), Stellar’s Lumen (-0.02%), and Tezos (-1.18%) struggled early on.
For the Bitcoin Day Ahead
Bitcoin would need to move through to $7,600 levels to bring the first major resistance level at $7,675.67 into play.
Support from the broader market would be needed, however, for Bitcoin to break out from the morning high $7,573.5.
Barring a broad-based crypto rally, the first major resistance level and Saturday’s high $7,700 would likely cap any upside.
In the event of a breakout, the 38.2% FIB of $7,730 and the second major resistance level at $7,812.83 would likely come into play.
Failure to move through to $7,600 levels could see Bitcoin hit reverse.
A fall through to sub-$7,560 levels would bring the first major support level at $7,425.67 into play.
Barring a crypto meltdown, however, Bitcoin should steer of the second major support level at $7,312.83.
