Along with that, the total volume of stablecoins is currently $90.48 billion while the total volume in DeFi is currently $8.62 billion.

GLOBAL CRYPTO MARKET OVERVIEW

Total Crypto Market Cap | Source: Tradingview

As discussed above, the total crypto market cap is managing to sustain above the crucial levels. It has absorbed all the selling pressures from the $950 billion region, and also the 50-day moving average (marked in cyan blue). Now over the next couple of days if it is able to sustain above the 50-DMA, we can confidently see another leg up by the end of July, possibly and reach the $1.15-1.3 trillion dollar region (marked in grey). That region would serve as an accumulation zone for bulls.

However, soon the bullish momentum may begin slowing down a little bit. This is because the Relative Strength Index, or the RSI, which is currently trading near 64 will quickly reach 80 if the buying continues. That 80 region is considered to be an overbought indication and hence some profit booking at those levels might be possible. However, the overbought region may coincide with the accumulation zone marked on the chart, which may prevent too much loss of value amid profit booking.

BITCOIN PRICE TODAY

BTC/USD | Source: Tradingview

Today is one of the most significant days for Bitcoin in almost the past three months. For the first time in three months, since 10 April, 2022 – Bitcoin has managed to break out over the 50-day moving average. This indicates the flipping of the short term bearish trend and hints at the possibility of a continued run upwards. This is significant because Bitcoin prices attempted to breach the 50-DMA thrice in the same timeframe but was unsuccessful every single time.

So going forward, quite in line with the broader crypto market cap analysis – we can expect Bitcoin to sustain its upward motion till the accumulation zone of $28k-32k. Bitcoin prices would take a halt there, allowing the RSI to take a breath and cool down from its overbought zones, as the bulls absorb the selling pressure coming in. Once that is done, and the bullish momentum in the market is not disturbed by any untoward incident, Bitcoin may continue its rally upwards from there.
