27 Jul: Calm Before The Storm

"I don't believe you have to be better than everybody else.
I believe you have to be better than you ever thought you could be."

Happy Humpday Folks! Bitcoin is making a push higher influenced by the IMF saying Crypto doesn't threaten the financial system, but on the 4hr chart, it is facing resistance around $21.5K if it can push through with volume, $23K is back in play; the MACD is showing a potential cross within the next few hours. 

It's the calm before the storm, so if the FED shows any kind of dovishness then I believe we will see the markets rally but if they are over hawkish to try an tame inflation more, that overhead resistance comes into play. 

Read, Watch, and LISTEN!
