Weekly Market Report
SPY was flat for this week, bounced off the 200 SMA (red - 431.04) and was not able to stay above the 61.8% (423.91) Fibonacci level. Questions for next week are if it will hold the mid June/July range over 417, or break down. If it breaks down, will the 50% retracement at 412.12 hold?
BTC dropped around 10% this week, and has lost the 20 and 50 EMAs (blue and green lines). Now they could act as a resistance for a reversal. If that doesn't happen will BTC hold 20K?
