BeInCrypto presents our daily morning roundup of crypto news and market changes that you might have missed while you were asleep.
BTC has been decreasing alongside a descending resistance line since June 29. It was last rejected by the line on July 12.
On July 20, it fell to a low of $29,200, creating a double bottom pattern relative to the June 22 low. Following this, it increased and reached a high of $30,900.
However, technical indicators are still bearish. While both the RSI and MACD have shown bullish reversal signs, the former is below 50 while the latter is below 0.
BTC has to break out from the descending resistance line in order to confirm a reversal.
The total cryptocurrency market cap has returned to the $1.3 trillion level after falling to a five-month low of $1.24 trillion yesterday. Nearly every asset in the top-100 is in the green in the past day, but many have still lost double-digit percentages in the past week.
THORChain (RUNE) is today’s best performer so far. RUNE has gained back 20% today after falling to a local low of $3.70 yesterday. This was the lowest price point for RUNE since early February.
Yesterday’s top gainer, LEO Token (LEO), has turned into today’s biggest loser. LEO is now down 4% on the day but is still up 4.5% on the week.
