Bitcoin crossed the $6400 and $6600 resistance levels to move into the Buy zone.
Bitcoin Cash crossed the resistance levels $760 and $780 and continues to move in the green.
“I don’t believe any client has sought out crypto exposure,” said Larry Fink, CEO of BlackRock.
The BlackRock news had surged the Bitcoin price to a slightly stronger upward movement on Monday (16th July 2018). As observed from the chart, even though Bitcoin price is currently sporting a little red candle, the overall trend so far continues to be bullish. In fact, according to Trading View, the technical analysis bar at the time of writing shows that the crypto coin is placed slightly in the Buy zone. For some time, last week, the BTC/USD pair had been trading below the $6400 level. So, the break of Bitcoin from this situation to the Bullish zone is a welcome news. At the time of writing, the BTC/USD pair is trading at $6709.98 with the moving average (blue line) pointing at 6428.88 approximately.
As can be observed from the chart above, the BTC/USD had a fair share of downtrends rather than uptrends. However, Bitcoin crossing even the $6600 level yesterday has raised hopes again. Now, it is to be seen whether the pair crosses the $6800 resistance level. But, the present slight downward movement may make the situation more challenging.
Bitcoin Cash (BCH/USD)
Yesterday, after Bitcoin Cash (BCH) had once crossed the $760 resistance level, the crypto coin had quite rapidly moved up to the $780 resistance line and crossed it. At the time of writing, as the chart shows, the BCH/USD pair is trading at $800.4. (As of 17th July 2018) The blue line (moving average) at the time of writing shows 725.22, as can be seen on the chart. There is a chance that Bitcoin Cash will continue to see an uptrend if the present situation continues. The BlackRock news also had a positive effect on the Bitcoin Cash market like on many other crypto coins. This had also created a rising pressure among the buyers and moved the pair to the Buy zone. One can expect Bitcoin Cash to strongly move into this region if the current trend continues. There is also a chance that the pair experience a slight upward and downward movement (daily range) before setting above the $800 resistance level.
The Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA) and the SEC together had given Coinbase the permission to acquire two more companies—Venovate Marketplace Inc. and Digital Wealth LLC. It was reported by Bloomberg. This may also have a positive effect on the overall cryptocurrency market and continue to keep both Bitcoin and Bitcoin Cash as well as other cryptocurrencies in the green zone.
