The Crypto Daily – The Movers and Shakers – May 31st, 2021

·3 min read

Bitcoin, BTC to USD, rose by 2.97% on Sunday. Reversing a 3.05% decline on Saturday, Bitcoin ended the week up by 3.01% to $35,614.0.

A bearish start to the day saw Bitcoin slide to an early morning intraday low $33,367 before making a move.

Steering clear of the first major support level at $33,000, Bitcoin rose to a mid-day intraday high $36,419.0.

Falling short of the first major resistance level at $36,764, Bitcoin fell back to sub-$35,100 levels before finding support.

Bitcoin briefly revisited $36,200 levels before ending the day at $35,600 levels.

The near-term bullish trend remained intact in spite of the recent slide back to sub-$30,000 levels. For the bears, Bitcoin would need a sustained fall through the 62% FIB of $27,237 to form a near-term bearish trend.

The Rest of the Pack

Across the rest of the majors, it was a bullish day on Sunday.

Cardano’s ADA jumped by 12.36% to lead the way, with Ripple’s XRP rallying by 9.01%.

Binance Coin (+6.79%), Chainlink (+5.67%), Ethereum (+4.69%), and Litecoin (+4.00%) also found strong support.

Bitcoin Cash SV (+3.63%), Crypto.com Coin (+0.72%), and Polkadot (+0.01%) trailed the front runners, however.

This Morning

At the time of writing, Bitcoin was down by 1.09% to $35,226.0. A mixed start to the day saw Bitcoin rise to an early morning high $35,959.0 before falling to a low $35,201.0.

Elsewhere, it was a mixed start to the day.

Crypto.com Coin (+0.63%), Polkadot (+0.67%), and Ripple’s XRP (+1.38%) bucked the trend with early gains.

It was a bearish start for the rest of the majors, however.

At the time of writing, Binance Coin was down by 1.48% to lead the way down.

For the Bitcoin Day Ahead

Bitcoin would need to avoid the pivot level at $35,133 to bring the first major resistance level at $36,900 into play.

Support from the broader market would be needed for Bitcoin to break out from Sunday’s high $36,419.0.

Barring a broad-based crypto rally, the first major resistance level and resistance at $37,000 would likely cap any upside.

In the event of an extended crypto rally, Bitcoin could test resistance at $40,000 levels. The second major resistance level sits at $38,185.

Failure to avoid the pivot at $35,133 would bring the first major support level at $33,848 into play.

Barring another extended sell-off on the day, Bitcoin should steer clear of the second major support level at $32,081.
