Bitcoin News and Talking Points

- The cryptocurrency market continues to steadily re-coup recent losses but price action is slowing.

- Bitcoin’s price chart still looks positive but needs to take stock ahead of any further move higher.

Bitcoin (BTC) Latest Price Chart Examined

After a positive week for a range of cryptocurrencies, chart patterns are pointing to a period of consolidation as traders look to the next move. Market heavyweight Bitcoin’s chart is the most positive with a series of higher lows only just broken in the last 24-hours. With a cluster of technical support levels near, any downside in BTC is expected to be limited before the strong uptrend – from the February 2 low – continues but at a slower pace.

Ethereum (ETH), Litecoin (LTC) and Ripple (XRP) Consolidating

The next three digital market heavyweights are also showing signs of exhaustion and need to close above the support levels we highlighted in today’s webinar (attached). Again a lack of negative news should limit any downside but traders should not expect to see any explosive rallies in the near-term as the market tries to find an equilibrium.

Litecoin (LTC) has drifted lower after the recent Litecoin Cash (LCC) hard-fork and we discussed how holders of LTC should claim their new windfall and the problems they may face. The new LCC currently changes hands at $7.50 although only a couple of exchanges currently support the token.
