Bitcoin (BTC) Steadies Around $61k, Ethereum (ETH) Posts a New All-Time High
Bitcoin (BTC/USD) and Ethereum (ETH/USD) Prices, Charts, and Analysis
Bitcoin is slowly pulling back the early week sell-off and is back in the multi-week bullish channel that has defined BTC price action over the past months. The early-May double high print has also acted as a brake to any recent downside move, and if BTC can keep above the 20-day simple average then a renewed test of the all-time high at $66,987 is back on the cards. In the shortterm, a break above yesterday’s $62,460 high would end a series of lower highs and give a move higher more technical credibility. Extra care needs to be taken going into the end of today’s session with month-end option expiries taking place.
Bitcoin (BTC/USD) Daily Price Chart – October 29, 2021
Ethereum made a new all-time high earlier in the session and it is unlikely to be its last as the daily chart remains positive. As with Bitcoin, the sell-off earlier this week has been re-couped, and as long as the bullish channel remains, then Ethereum is likely to go into price discovery mode soon. The next likely figure to be talked about will be $5k which would seem achievable fairly quickly. Ethereum has also outperformed Bitcoin in the past few days, pushing the BTC/ETH spread back to around 700 compared to its 590 multi-week low made just 10 days ago. The Ethereum set-up remains positive going into the end of the year.
