Top Crypto Prices on July 19: Bitcoin Price touches $22,000, Ethereum above $1500, NEAR, Gala & ETC Top Gainers

Crypto Price Today: Bitcoin touches $22k, Ethereum crosses $1500

Continuing its winning streak, the crypto market managed to gain in value for yet another day, now bringing the total crypto market cap over $1.01 trillion, or 3.5% since yesterday, as of writing this article. Now it must be noted that the market has finally properly breached above the trillion dollar mark after almost a month loitering below that level.

Another major positive sign to support this breach over the trillion dollar level is that the recovery was backed up by healthy volumes. The total crypto market volume over the last 24 hours is $109.97 billion, which makes a 76.94% increase over yesterday, according to CoinMarketCap.

DeFi volumes also saw a huge spike in the same timeframe. The total volume in DeFi is currently $9.03 billion, 8.21% of the total crypto market 24-hour volume. The volume of all stable coins is now $99.42 billion, which is 90.41% of the total crypto market 24-hour volume.

So, pretty much in line with the broader market, major coins all across the board saw healthy levels of recovery. Bitcoin rallied 3% over the past 24 hours to touch $21,900 levels while Ethereum jumped up another 8% to cross the $1500 level. Now this is significant, since these are levels that had proved to be heavy supply zones that had resulted in eventual losses but, it seems things are going to be different this time.

Along with these flagship coins, a large bunch of other altcoins recorded some impressive gains too. Continuing its massive run from yesterday, Ethereum Classic which rallied yet another 16.8% as of writing this, trading at about $24.9. Along with them, Near Protocol’s NEAR and metaverse token Gala managed to secure the top two spots, up about 19% and 17% respectively. Even SAND, RUNE, Curve DAO, MATIC, ApeCoin, Loopring, Decentraland and Fantom were some of the other tokens that recorded 12%+ gains over the past 24 hours.

Overall, the broader market base has been successful in keeping the bullish momentum up and a strong recovery seems to be on the horizon going forward. One way to infer this is from the chart below, where you can see a drop in Bitcoin’s dominance in the total crypto market cap, suggesting other coins are gaining at a faster pace than Bitcoin, and thus biting into the king coin’s dominance.

GLOBAL CRYPTO MARKET OVERVIEW

Total Crypto Market Cap | Source: Tradingview

So after yesterday, the global crypto market rallied another 3.5% touch touch the $1.01 trillion mark before falling back down again. But the difference is very marginal and the trillion dollar mark can be achieved again. However, from a technical standpoint, the market cap has managed to sustain above the $960 billion mark, which had been a strict supply zone twice in the past.

Now, the market has managed to absorb all the supply pressures in the zone and managed to rise well above it to touch the trillion dollar mark. Coincidentally, the valuation has managed to sustain above the 50-day moving average for two days in a row now, suggesting the maintenance of a short term trend reversal. However to see a major change in broader trend, the 200-day moving average needs to be breached – which is still very far away. For the market cap to reach $1.5 trillion, it would need to break through several hurdles along the way.

But for the time being, the upward move can be considered to be strong. The Relative Strength Index, currently trading just shy of 60, is still at a reasonable level and there is still some space before it reaches the overbought zone. The overbought zone would warrant some easing of the rally with some profit booking before resuming its rally.

Bitcoin’s hand in leading the crypto market recovery, that began early last week is still going on strong. The king coin has now managed to sustain above the $21.9k-22k level and is a very small distance away from the 50-day moving average (cyan blue line on the chart). At the current rate, Bitcoin can most likely breach and sustain above it by the end of this week itself. Once that happens, a short term trend reversal for Bitcoin would be underway and short positions would start exiting their positions, thus giving way to further upside strength.

But any upward rally would be met with stiff resistance at the $28k-32k zone. Bitcoin can be expected to spend some time within that zone to absorb all the selling pressures before resuming its upward journey
