Bitcoin (BTC) fell to support which could determine a $30,000 retest on July 13 as bulls failed to make their case for fresh gains.

Ranging above $33,000, viewed as the support level to hold as a springboard for bullish continuation, seemed shaky at best this week. Monday saw a brief slip below, with the rebound barely holding out for 18 hours.
At the time of writing, $32,500 formed a focus, with Bitcoin bouncing below levels one trader says are necessary to hold in order to prevent a return to closer to $31,000.
“The critical support that I’ve derived here is the area around $32,600-$32,900, which you preferably want to see sustain as support to avoid another test of the lows,” Michaël van de Poppe explained in an update earlier on Tuesday.
