USDT.D and BTC analysis
As usual, I always start my analysis with USDT.D as it serves as an indicator of traders' sentiment. USDT.D reflects whether traders are optimistic (investing in cryptocurrencies) or pessimistic (shifting towards stablecoins).
USDT.D is currently consolidating within a strong resistance zone.
As long as the resistance persists, we anticipate a bearish movement, which could positively impact the overall sentiment in the crypto market.
In the 1-hour timeframe, USDT.D has been hovering near the upper boundary of the range. To establish bearish control once again, a break below the last minor low marked in orange at 5.69% is necessary.
In parallel, for the bulls to assume control and signal the beginning of an uptrend, a breakout above 5.96% is required.
After being rejected by the $48,000 resistance zone, BTC experienced a decline and is currently positioned near the lower boundary of the orange wedge pattern.
As long as the $41,500 support holds, we will be on the lookout for trend-following buy setups on lower timeframes.
For the bulls to assume control and initiate the next bullish impulse, a momentum candle close above the last high marked in green at $43,350 is required.
In this scenario, a movement towards the $48,000 - $50,000 range would be expected.
5 Altcoins Analysis
Let's start with BCH. In accordance with our analysis from last week, BCH rejected the $220 support and moved higher, reaching our target at $300.
Currently, as BCH retraces to retest the lower boundary of the blue channel and the $220 support once again, we will be searching for new buy setups on lower timeframes.
Turning our focus to LDO, this specific altcoin has displayed an overall bullish trend, trading within the confines of a rising broadening wedge outlined in blue.
Presently, LDO is undergoing a retest of the lower blue trendline. Thus, we will be looking for trend-following buy setups on lower timeframes.
In the 1-hour timeframe, for the bulls to establish control, a momentum candle close above the last major high highlighted in red at $3.5 is necessary.
In this scenario, a movement towards the $4 resistance would be expected.
Meanwhile, LDO could remain bearish and potentially continue to trade lower.
Next on the list for today, we have INJ. It has exhibited a flat trend, trading within a narrow range between $33 and $45.
As INJ approaches the $45 support zone, we will be actively searching for potential buy setups on lower timeframes.
In parallel, for the bulls to assume control from a long-term perspective, a momentum candle close above $45 is needed.
Analyzing RNDR, it has generally shown a bullish trend, trading above the red trendline.
At present, RNDR is undergoing a correction zone and nearing a robust demand zone highlighted in green.
Examining the 4-hour timeframe for RNDR , it's apparent that bearish momentum prevails, as it is trading inside the falling channel in blue.
For the bulls to assume control and initiate the next upward impulse movement, a breakout above the last major high at $4.4 is necessary.
Meanwhile, RNDR could remain bearish and potentially continue trading lower to test the daily demand zone.
After rejecting the $7500 support, YFI has been consolidating within a narrow range.
If the $7500 support is breached downward, a movement towards the $6300 demand zone can be anticipated.
Meanwhile, as long as the support holds, we will be actively looking for buy setups.
For the bulls to assume control once more and initiate the next upward impulse movement, a momentum candle close above the neckline of the inverse head and shoulders, marked in red at $8450, is required.

INJ: Trading within $33-$45 range, INJ is examined as it approaches the $45 support zone for potential buy setups.
RNDR: Displaying a bullish trend but currently in a correction zone, RNDR needs to break above $4.4 for upward momentum.
