A Guide to Day Trading Bitcoin and Other Cryptocurrencies.

Bitcoin’s recent heavy sell-off has left the cryptocurrency in heavily oversold territory, according to the CCI indicator (bottom of the chart), leaving the market open to a short-term upside rebound. The July 2 spike-low at $9,640 remains in place for now, and if this remains the case a move back to $10,800 before $11,470 and the recent double-top around $11,900 cannot be discounted. The 50-day moving average, just under $10,000, also remains supportive if it survives a re-test. A decisive break lower could see a re-test of a cluster of trades between $8,600 and $9,600.
