BTC/USD has corrected sideways the past week failing to break through the 32k price level and closing back inside of the $31.5 price high.
Moving forward as the daily 50 EMA rises we could see support be found here to push price up into the $33k region targeting the order block at that price point. Alternatively a break below 1D sell-side liquidity and down to sub $27k would be on the cards.
In June, Ethereum-based instruments experienced a significant surge, according to CCData. The trading volume for ETH Futures contracts surpassed 97,000, marking an impressive 10.8% increase.
