BTC/USD & ETH/USD Charts Continue to Build Bearish Patterns

BTC/USD & ETH/USD Charts Continue to Build Bearish Patterns

Paul Robinson, Strategist

BTC & ETH Technical Highlights:

  • BTC/USD treading water sideways, 28600 the big level to watch
  • ETH/USD working on forming a nice-looking descending wedge

BTC/USD continues to meander sideways, with more downside expected. It could still rally a bit from here up to around 36k or so and still have a bearish look to it. In fact, if it does that could make for a solid wedge formation. In any event, a break below 28600 is seen as triggering another sell-off to at least the 2017 high at 19666.

ETH/USD is forming a nice-looking descending wedge that is poised to send it lower. The pattern could of course trigger to the upside by breaking the top-side trend-line of the pattern, but is seen as the less likely outcome. A breakdown below 1700 will have 1420 and lower in focus. The size of the wedge implies we could see a measured move down to around 700.
