Bitcoin cracked a 4 day slide of daily closes in red figures on Wednesday and closed the daily candle +4.05%.
The below chart from OptimoomFX shows how strong support at $36k bitcoin is and shows the likelihood for a re-test of the top of the range around $42k if bulls can push the price back over $40k.
It almost looks like desperation time for bears on the 1D chart to once again get the price below $35k and get a significant close on an important timescale. Otherwise, bulls could soon be sending the price to the high $40k’s.

EIP-1559 is finally upon us and scheduled to ship to ETH mainnet on Thursday when miners generate block number 12,965,000. The improvement proposal is designed to decrease short-term volatility in demand for transaction space within a block because that problem creates volatility in transaction fees. With the new proposal some of the volatility instead translates into volatility in block size.
We’ll know soon whether EIP-1559 is priced in and whether or not it impacts the Ethereum network for better or worse.
