Bitcoin, Ethereum Predictions – Consolidation Phase Leading to Higher Prices

Bitcoin, Ethereum Predictions – Consolidation Phase Leading to Higher Prices

Nick Cawley, Strategist

Bitcoin (BTC/USD), Ethereum (ETH/USD), Alt-Coins Price, Chart, and Analysis

  • 200-day sma remains supportive for Bitcoin.
  • Ethereum seeking 20-day sma support.
  • Alt-coins diverge, Solana (SOL) outperforms.

Bitcoin has broken out of its recent uptrend channel and is now struggling to regain support turned resistance around $48k. BTC is currently supported by the 200-day simple moving average and is trading on either side of the 50% Fibonacci retracement level just under $47k. While this week has seen a gradual sell-off from Monday’s multi-week high, the technical outlook does not look overly negative if the longer-dated sma and the Fib retracement hold over the weekend. The CCI indicator is no longer in overbought territory and is currently at its lowest level in a month, aiding the positive outlook. A cluster of recent lows and the 38.2% Fib retracement between $42.5k and $44k should provide initial support in the case of any sell-off.

Ethereum’s sharp rise mid-July has come to a halt over the last two weeks and the 2nd largest cryptocurrency is struggling to regain the sharp channel uptrend. Ethereum is sitting in a very short-term $3,050 - $3,250 zone and is also trading either side of the 20-day sma. The recent multi-week high at $3,378 remain close at hand and is likely to come under pressure in the coming days and weeks, especially if the 20-day sma remains supportive.
