Chart of the Week

On-Chain Dynamics

  • Roughly 15 addresses with a balance of 1,000 BTC or more have sold or redistributed their holdings over the past week, while Bitcoin consolidates between $21,545.20 and $18,913.80.
  • With more than $300 million worth of BTC added as selling pressure across all major cryptocurrency exchanges, Bitcoin’s price could soon react and trigger a significant move.

Testing Resistance

  • At about $20,794.40 on Sunday, Jul 17th, Bitcoin approaches a crucial area of resistance at $21,545.20.
  • From a technical perspective, the $21,545.20 supply wall could weaken after being tested multiple times over the past month. Still, BTC needs to print a daily candlestick close above it to gain the strength to advance further. Slicing through this level can trigger an upswing to the 50-day moving average at $23,3140.30, or even the $27,751.00 resistance can be expected.
  • If Bitcoin fails to overcome resistance at $21,545.20, a downswing to the $18,913.80 support level becomes imminent.

Skepticism Mounts

  • On Binance Futures, the BTCUSDT Long/Short Ratio dropped significantly over the past week to close on Sunday, Jul 17th, at a ratio of 0.82.
  • Traders appear to be taking the price upswing seen over the past week with a grain of salt, as 54.82% of all Binance Futures accounts with an opened position in Bitcoin are net short.
