CAC Technical Analysis

After failing to break below psychological support earlier this month, CAC bulls have managed to drive prices higher in an effort to rise above the 76.4% retracement of the 2011 -2022 move at 6,275, closing the previous price gap from the 10 – 13 June move.

In order for the uptrend to hold, a break of 6,275 and 6,374 could see the next big level at the June high just below 6,600.

Bitcoin Technical Analysis

Meanwhile, Bitcoin prices are currently trading lower after rebounding off the $24,000 handle last week.

If risk aversion or USD strength remains intact, additional selling pressure may drive prices back towards $20,000 with a probable retest of the $18,000 mark coming back into play.
