29 Jul: Can The Rally Continue?

It's FRIDAY Folks! We made it to another Friday and the market is looking pretty good despite the fact we just got a 75 basis point hike and a recession (not recession) announcement. Many said this was a bull trap (and it could be) but it's not looking like that right now. I personally believe we can continue to push higher until we get to around $30K at that point unless Bitcoin bull step in with a lot of conviction to break through that level with volume, I can see another pull back but I continue to believe the bottom is in. 

The broader market is also looking good with Ethereum showing significant bullishness and Ethereum Classic (ETC) is benefitting from the merge from PoW to PoS. Other projects such as Cardano, Solana, Polygon, Curve are all showing positive signs as well. 

The regulatory landscape is mixed but as CZ said, mostly it's positive because no one is talking about banning Bitcoin or Digital Assets; instead they are putting rules in place to allow them to operate and keep the bad actors out. I hope you all have a great weekend and keep reading, watching, and LISTENING :)
