What Changed in Crypto Markets While You Were Sleeping — July 12
BeInCrypto presents our daily morning roundup of crypto news and market changes that you might have missed while you were asleep.
BTC decreased slightly during the week of July 7-12. It proceeded to reach a low of $32,077 before rebounding slightly and closing at $34,258.
It has been trading above the $32,400 horizontal support area since May 19. While BTC created several long lower wicks below this area, it has not managed to reach a close below it. Therefore, the support area is still intact.
Despite this occurrence, technical indicators are bearish. The MACD is negative and decreasing, the RSI has fallen below 50, and the Stochastic oscillator has made a bearish cross.
The 0.618 Fib retracement support level is located at $27,050.
The total cryptocurrency market cap is up nearly 3% on the day, returning to the $1.47 trillion level. Since the beginning of July, the market cap has mostly been moving sideways in a range between $1.39 trillion and $1.5 trillion. Both bitcoin (BTC) and Ethereum (ETH) are up 2% on the day.
While the majority of altcoins in the top-100 are in the green today, Telcoin (TEL) is the best performer. TEL has gained nearly 21% in the past 24 hours. Despite this positive short-term movement, TEL is still down by more than 22% in the past week.
Stacks (STX) is the day’s biggest loser at the moment. STX has lost 8% in the past 24 hours. However, this appears to be just a retracement, as STX is still up by nearly 50% in the last week. STX has rebounded to the $1.30 level after plummeting to a local low of $0.60 on June 22.
