Bitcoin fell by 0.08% on Sunday. Following on from a 0.02% decline on Saturday, Bitcoin ended the day at $7,364.6.

A bullish start to the day saw Bitcoin rally to an early morning intraday high $7,509.9.
Bitcoin broke through the first major resistance level at $7,428.77 and the second major resistance level at $7,487.73.
While easing back to sub-$7,500 levels, Bitcoin held onto $7,400 levels until a late sell-off.
The sell-off saw Bitcoin fall back through the major resistance levels to a late intraday low $7,315.8.
Steering clear of the first major support level at $7,304.07, Bitcoin found support in the final hour to limit the downside on the day.
The near-term bearish trend, formed at late June’s swing hi $13,764.0, remained firmly intact, reaffirmed with Bitcoin’s slide back to sub-$7,000 levels earlier in the week.
For the bulls, Bitcoin would need to break out from $11,000 levels to form a near-term bullish trend.
The Rest of the Pack
Across the rest of the top 10 cryptos, it was a mixed day for the majors.
Monero’s XRM led the way, rallying by 6.03% to replace Stellar’s Lumen in the crypto top 10 (by market cap).

Monero’s XMR and Bitcoin Cash SV led the way with gains of 15.5% and 11.3% respectively.
Bitcoin Cash ABC (+5.44%), Ethereum (+0.74%), and Litecoin (+0.56%) also made gains in the week.

Binance Coin (-0.21%), EOS (-0.22%), Ripple’s XRP (-1.18%), Stellar’s Lumen (-1.62%), and Tron’s TRX (-1.24%) also joined Bitcoin in the red for the week.

Bitcoin left the major support and resistance levels untested early on.
Elsewhere, Monero’s XMR (+0.36%), Ripple’s XRP (+0.12%), Tezos (+0.07%), and Tron’s TRX (+0.07%) also found early support.
It was a bearish start for the rest, however, with Bitcoin Cash SV (-0.26%), Ethereum (-0.23%) and Stellar’s Lumen (-0.27%) leading the way down.
For the Bitcoin Day Ahead
Bitcoin would need to move back through to $7,390 levels to support a run at the first major resistance level at $7,477.73.
Support from the broader market would be needed for Bitcoin to break back through to $7,400 levels.
Barring an extended crypto rally on the day, resistance at $7,500 would likely limit any upside.
Failure to move through to $7,390 levels could see Bitcoin hit reverse.
A fall through the morning low $7,358.0 would bring the first major resistance level at $7,283.63 into play.
Barring a crypto meltdown, however, Bitcoin should steer clear of sub-$7,200 levels.
The second major support level at $7,202.67 should limit any downside on the day.
