Bitcoin: Technical points to $8,500 by the end of the month

Not since late 2017 have actors in the crypto market felt so great. The spectacular climb of digital coins was led by the remarkable rise of King Bitcoin.

The top representative of this disruptive technology enjoyed a considerable rise from $5,800 on Friday afternoon to touch $7,500on Sunday. The coin is back to its natural, authentic behavior.

The primary victim of the movement has been Ethereum, which despite exceeding $200 in the euphoric peak, was unable to keep up with Bitcoin.

What does that mean?

The data has two different readings. First, as I have said on several occasions, the crypto market has not experienced any bull market in which Altcoins, and Ethereum in particular, have not behaved better than Bitcoin. So, if this pattern continues, the current rises are not yet attributable to the beginning of a bull market, only to repositioning for the start of one.

If the pattern is not repeated this time, those with high exposure to Altcoins may find themselves in a complicated situation. Even as they will see the value of their positions rise, the respective value in Bitcoin will decrease in parallel.

BTC/USD Daily Chart

The BTC/USD pair is currently trading at the $7.028 price level, after leaving a relative high of $7.500. After the substantial gains of these hours, it is expected that the BTC will consolidate its gains against the Dollar.

Below the current price, the first support level is $6,375 (EMA50 and price congestion support), then the second support level is at$5,800 (SMA100 and price congestion support). The third level of support for BTC/USD is at $5,500 (SMA20 and price congestion support).

Above the current price, the first resistance level is at the weekend highs of $7,550(price congestion resistance), then the second resistance level is at $8,000 (price congestion resistance). The third resistance level is at $8,500 (price congestion resistance).

As we can see, technical supports appear stronger than resistances.

 

 

The MACD on the 4-hour chart shows the cross lines down after the extreme levels reached. The cross does not have an excessive bearish slope, so it is possible that some attempt to reach new relative highs can still be seen.

The DMI on the 4-hour chart shows bulls dominating but showing exhaustion from the $7,000 bullish breakout. The bears increase their positions from a similar price level. The pattern indicates high possibilities of a new optimistic attempt, but that would have little development in time.

ETH/USD Daily Chart

The ETH/USD is currently trading at the $187 price level, after hitting a relative high of $205.

Below the current price, the first support level is at $181 (price congestion support and EMA50), then the second support level is at $170 (price congestion support, SMA200, and SMA100). The third level of support for the ETH/USD pair is at $161(price congestion support).

Above the current price, the first resistance level is at $190 (price congestion resistance), then the second resistance level is at $200 (price congestion resistance). The third resistance level for the ETH/USD pair is at $205 (relative maximum).

 

 

The MACD on the 4-hour chart shows a bearish cross initiated today during the Asian session. The lines have little downward inclination, and the price may still try new highs within a short term downturn environment.

The DMI on the 4-hour chart shows bulls with many advantages over bears, although after reaching the $200 level they began to show weakness. The bears, on the other hand, have increased their strength from the same price levels, but have relaxed in recent hours.

XRP/USD Daily Chart

XRP/USD is currently trading at $0.316, breaking all moving averages in the last 48 hours, something that hasn’t happened since April.

Below the current price, the first level of support is $0.315 (price congestion support and SMA200). The second support level is $0.308 (price congestion support, EMA50, and SMA100). The third level of support for the XRP/USD pair is $0.30 (price congestion support).

Above the current price, the first resistance level is $0.325 (price congestion resistance), then the second resistance level is $0.328(price congestion resistance). The third resistance level is at $0.335 (price congestion resistance).

 

 

The MACD on the four-hour chart shows a bearish cross structure but has not yet occurred. If it coincides in time with the last attempt at a Bitcoin rally, the result can be potent.

The DMI on the four-hour chart shows bulls dominating the market but without an undue advantage. It is positive that bulls stay above the ADX line, which favors bullish continuity. Bears bounce from lows but cannot get above the 20 levels of the indicator.
