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 has been consolidating within a narrow range around a support zone for nearly two weeks.

As long as the support holds, we anticipate a bullish movement. However, there is still a possibility for USDT.D to test the 5.63% support level before resuming upward movement.

As per our last outlook, USDT.D is still positioned around a major structure at 5.88%. If this structure is breached downward, we anticipate further bearish movement towards the 5.5% demand zone.

In parallel, for the bulls to take over and push the price towards the 6.4% resistance zone, a breakout above the last major high at 6.11% is required.

This week has been relatively uneventful as BTC continues to hover around the significant high of $43,700.

To remain in control and push the price towards the $50,000 resistance, a breakout above the $43,700 level is needed.

BTC has been trading within a symmetrical triangle pattern highlighted in orange.

Should the last low at $42,250 be breached downward, we anticipate further bearish movement towards the $41,000 support level.

In parallel, if the symmetrical triangle and the $43,700 resistance are broken upward, we expect a bullish continuation towards $48,000.

5 Altcoins Analysis

As per our previous analysis from a couple of weeks ago, SKL successfully broke above the $0.03 resistance level and surged to reach our target at $0.1.

At present, SKL is undergoing a correction phase and is approaching the red trendline and the $0.062 support level. Hence we will be looking for trend-following buy setups.

For the bulls to assume control in the medium-term and initiate the next upward impulse movement, a breakout above the last major high at $0.0835, highlighted in green, is needed.

Turning our attention to RUNE, it has been overall bearish, trading within the descending channel outlined in red.

However, it is currently approaching a strong demand zone at $3.5, thus we will be expecting the bulls to kick in anytime soon.

In the 4-hour timeframe, for the bulls to take over and shift the momentum from bearish to bullish , a breakout below the upper red trendline and the last major high at $5.1 is needed.

Meanwhile, RUNE is expected to remain bearish and may continue to decline towards filling the $3.5 daily demand zone.

Next on the list for today is IOTA. It is currently bearish, trading within the descending channel in red.

For the bulls to assume control and initiate the next upward impulse, a breakout above the last major high highlighted in orange at $0.27 is required.

Meanwhile, IOTA may continue to trade lower to test the $0.2 support level. In this scenario, we will be looking for new short-term buy setups on lower timeframes.

Analyzing QNT, it has been hovering within a range bounded by the $100 support and the $115 resistance.

Currently, QNT is approaching the lower bound of the range so we will be looking for buy setups on lower timeframes.

In the 4-hour timeframe, QNT has shown a bearish trend from a medium-term perspective, trading within the falling channel marked in red.

For the bulls to assume control and initiate the next upward impulse movement, a breakout above the last major high at $105.3 is necessary.

MASK has been consolidating within a range between $3 and $4.

At present, MASK is retesting the lower bound of the range and the support zone, hence we will be looking for potential buy setups on lower timeframes.

For the bulls to regain control, a momentum candle close above the last major high highlighted in orange at $3.45 is necessary.

Meanwhile, MASK is expected to remain bearish and may continue to decline, potentially retesting the $3 support zone.
