Market Analysis

Bitcoin (BTC) headed lower into the July 5 Wall Street open as a risk-off mood entered United States equities.

BTC price begins hitting dip-buying targets

Data from Cointelegraph Markets Pro and TradingView showed BTC/USD tapping multi-day lows of $30,280 on Bitstamp.

BTC price action continued a sideways trading pattern within a larger range in place practically since mid-June.

With no discernible progress toward breaking topside resistance, Bitcoin traders hoped that a sweep of the lows would provide the fuel bulls needed.

Popular trader Crypto Ed had his eye on the area at $30,000 or just below on the day.

“We’re heading there, will look for reaction from that level,” he wrote in part of Twitter commentary.

Fellow trader Jelle meanwhile looked for an opportunity to “buy the dip” nearer $28,000 — already a popular target for doing so.

“As Bitcoin’s daily bearish divergence plays out, I see a potential hidden bullish divergence shaping up,” he revealed alongside an explanatory chart.

“If this ends up as just a shallow pullback, that could just provide the juice we need to break through $32,000 once and for all.”

The chart showed Bitcoin’s relative strength index (RSI) printing the bearish divergence referred to.

Bitcoin “bullish market structure” remains

There was little sign of panic despite the lack of upside momentum.

Trader and analyst Rekt Capital, following a strong monthly close, called intraday performance “nothing to panic about.”

“Personally i am long while we are above $28,000 as we had a super good entry,” trader Crypto Tony continued.

“If you are not yet in a position, i would wait for this dip i am looking for, or a flip of $31,000 resistance zone into support. Those are your two triggers for today.”

Daan Crypto Trades likewise reiterated that the bullish status quo was still valid.

“On the lower timeframes, the bullish market structure is still in tact,” part of his latest analysis read.

“I would consider a 29.5K retest if $BTC were to lose the mid range. Until then, liquidity sits at 31.4-31.5K.”
