BTC $1,000 Daily Impressive Recover, But Still In The Danger Zone
Looking at the daily, we saw a beautiful reversal candle, followed by a decent amount of volume. However, Bitcoin is still in the danger zone.
Another thing to note is the RSI, which is producing lower highs on the daily chart. If the momentum indicator doesn’t go back bullish, at least above the 52-53 level, this can forecast some short-term bearish action for Bitcoin.
Some optimism is that the recent correction found support at $9,800, which on the daily level is higher than the prior low at $9600 (from July 2nd).
Total Market Cap: $288 billion
Bitcoin Market Cap: $191.7 billion
BTC Dominance Index: 66.6% (New 2019 high)
