Bitcoin Price Stalls at $9,300, Altcoins Rally to New Multi-Year Highs

Within the last few hours, the Bitcoin (BTC) price pushed above $9,300 after struggling to hold the $9,300–$9,400 level for the past three days. 

The move was accompanied by a notable surge in purchasing volume, which is exactly what was needed given that on July 6 and 7, the Bitcoin price formed a tweezer top and rejected at $9,374.

Currently, the price trades slightly above the 20-MA and the descending trendline from the local high at $10,377 on June 1, but Bitcoin’s failure to hold the $9,300 level means that a shot at $9,600 remains out of reach.

Aside from the need for Bitcoin’s price to set a higher high above $9,374, the VPVR shows a high volume at $9,450, so bulls are not out of the woods yet. 

Traders will be watching to see if the price can secure a four-hour close above $9,300, and if Bitcoin can push through the $9,450 level, then a surge to $9,600 is likely. 

If Bitcoin price fails to hold $9,300, the four-hour time frame shows support at $9,225 and below this, at $9,000.

As Bitcoin price slowly worked its way through resistance to $9,300, a handful of the top-50 altcoins posted strong double-digit gains. Cardano (ADA) reached a new two-year high by rallying 26% to $0.13. 

Chainlink (LINK) also rallied 6.11% to a new all-time high at $5.99. VeChain (VET) was another top performer for the day with a 21.6% rally.

According to CoinMarketCap, the overall cryptocurrency market cap now stands at $271.3 billion and Bitcoin’s dominance rate is 63%.
