Chart of the Week

On-Chain Dynamics

  • The number of BTC tokens held on known cryptocurrency exchange wallets continues to decline as roughly 40,000 BTC, worth more than $760 million, were withdrawn from trading platforms since Jun 27th.
  • Meanwhile, addresses with a balance of 100 to 10,000 BTC increased their holdings. These whales appear to have purchased or acquired 30,000 BTC over the past week, worth over $570 million.

Trading Below Support

  • At about $19,305.90 on Sunday, Jul 3rd, Bitcoin closed below the psychological $20,000 support level while liquidity dries up.
  • From a technical perspective, Bitcoin needs to print a three-day close above $19,924.50 to have a chance of rebounding towards $22,578.10 or even $28,688.00.
  • Failing to overcome such a critical resistance barrier could trigger a downswing towards $16,648.60 or even $11,893.30.

Growing Optimism

  • On Binance Futures, the BTCUSDT Long/Short Ratio surged to a high of 1.80 on Jul 3rd.
  • Traders appear to grow optimistic about a potential price rebound as 64.29% of all Binance Futures accounts with an opened position in Bitcoin are net-long.
