in #bitcoin6 years ago

Has the uptrend started? Read today's report to see what are some significant levels to look out for in order to confirm the uptrend.

General overview

Market Cap: $284,394,661,536

24h Vol: $16,128,684,818

BTC Dominance: 45.0%

From yesterday’s level, the evaluation of the cryptocurrency market capitalization has decreased by 4 million dollars which is not that significant. As you can see from the chart below the evaluation has formed a plateau.

The market is mixed in colors, with an average percentage of change among top ranging from 2-4%.


Looking at the headlines that came out in the last 24 hours I see that many are analytical in nature as everyone is now speculating on whether the cryptocurrency market has reached its bottom, because of the rebound that the market has experienced.

Some of the headlines that fit that category are the following:

From yesterday’s open at 7290$ the price of Bitcoin has increased by 2% and is currently sitting around 7467$.

As you can see from the hourly chart the price action is testing the resistance line of the prior triangle support (bold blue line) and has formed a symmetrical triangle around it. The breakout looks near and judging by the steepness of the support line it looks like buyers are more aggressive at the moment which is why a breakout on the upside is more likely, but not by more than 15% likely.

Market sentiment

Hourly chart technicals signal a buy.

Moving averages are signaling a strong buy.

From yesterday’s high at 483$ the price of Ethereum has fallen by 4% as its currently sitting at 464$ level.

As it can be seen on the hourly chart, the price action is in the channel and currently in the lower midpoints of the channel. As the market is correlated, if the price of Bitcoin goes up so will the price of the Ethereum to the channels resistance line at least.

Today is a very important day because we will see either a confirmation that the uptrend started or an invalidation, and a shift toward a short-term recovery in a downtrend scenario.


Interesting to see the altcoins underperform Bitcoin by such a large margin. Bitcoin may be seen as the reserve asset to be in before deploying elsewhere.
