Bitcoin (BTC) hit three-day lows into the July 10 weekly close as $21,000 gave way as short-term support.
Trader eyes bullish divergences across markets
The pair circled $20,850 at the time of writing, around $1,600 below the week’s peak at the 200-week moving average.
Despite no continuation of the breakout, Bitcoin gave some commentators cause for cautious optimism ahead of the new week beginning.
“The markets are showing higher timeframe bullish divergences and the sentiment is the same as on a funeral,” Cointelegraph contributor Michaël van de Poppe summarized:
“A recipe for a reversal is there, and it can accelerate quite fast. Invest when nobody is interested. Sell when everyone is interested.”
Popular trader Crypto Tony, meanwhile, entertained the idea of a new sideways phase entering before a deeper drop, something which he imagined “would drive everyone crazy.”
Macro conditions remained uncertain, with upheaval in Sri Lanka adding to a sense of nervousness engendered by the common global theme of energy, food and financial crisis.
Attention focused on the United States dollar Index (DXY), which had ended the week back on support after spiking to fresh highs not seen in twenty years.
Risk Reserve hits all-time lows
Those seeking a golden buying opportunity on BTC, meanwhile, got a fresh key signal from the Reserve Risk indicator.
As noted by commentator Murad over the weekend, Reserve Risk, which shows long-term holder sentiment, hit its lowest-ever levels at July’s prices.
“Either this indicator is broken or we are in the high timeframe bottoming zone,” he said in part of Twitter comments alongside data from on-chain analytics firm Glassnode:
Reserve Risk, as Cointelegraph recently reported, has been rediscovering its green “buy” zone since March, this corresponding to optimal chances to invest with “outsized returns” as a result.
