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).
For another week, USDT.D has remained within a strong support zone.
It is presently retesting that support zone, and we anticipate the bulls to take charge soon.
To maintain bearish control, a daily candle close below 5.63% is required.
In the 1-hour timeframe, for the bulls to take control, a breakout above the red wedge pattern and the last major high in red at 5.81% is necessary.
Meanwhile, USDT.D would remain bearish and might continue trading lower.
After rejecting the lower boundary of the red channel, BTC traded higher, indicating that the bulls are likely to maintain control.
The next target for the bulls is the $48,000 resistance zone.
As highlighted in the previous week's analysis, the bulls asserted dominance by breaking above the last major high in red.
The bullish momentum will persist unless there is a break below the recent low at $43,000.
5 Altcoins Analysis
Let's start with CFX. The bullish trend has prevailed as it operates within the confines of the ascending channel outlined in red.
Currently positioned near a robust resistance zone, the bulls must secure a breakthrough above the $0.22 mark to maintain control and establish a long-term bullish trajectory.
Conversely, the bears would need to initiate a significant downward move by breaching the last major low at $0.16 to signal the potential start of a deep bearish correction.
Shifting our attention to IOTA, this altcoin experienced a bullish surge after surpassing the $0.2 resistance, leading to a new monthly high.
However, its current momentum shows signs of diminishing, and it is now consolidating within a tight range.
In the 4-hour timeframe, to reestablish bullish control, IOTA must successfully break above the resistance at $0.315, signaling a potential resumption of the upward trend.
Conversely, for the bears to seize control, a breakdown below the local support at $0.25 is essential. In such a scenario, a move towards the $0.2 support becomes likely, presenting an opportunity to explore new buy setups.
Examining QTUM, it has been trading within a tight range, bounded by the $2.88 support and $3.70 resistance levels.
This week, QTUM rejected the $2.88 support and is heading higher. Consequently, a continuation of this bullish momentum is anticipated, targeting the $3.70 resistance zone.
For the bullish scenario to persist, it is crucial that the $2.88 support level holds firm.
However, if this support is breached, it may pave the way for additional bearish movement, potentially leading QTUM towards the next support level at $2.425.
Following the breach of the $0.079 level, TRX, in line with the earlier analysis, initiated a bullish impulse, pushing the price upward towards the upper boundary of the ascending red channel.
At present, TRX has entered a consolidation phase, in the shape of a symmetrical triangle pattern in orange.
In the 4-hour timeframe, a definitive move beyond the recent major high at $0.109 is imperative for the bulls to restore full control of the market.
On the flip side, if the price drops below the last significant low at $0.0975, it could pave the way for additional bearish movement, with the potential to reach the lower red trendline from the daily timeframe.
YFI has experienced a notable 110% surge, but recent weeks have seen the onset of a bearish correction phase.
The current scenario involves YFI approaching a robust support level at $7500.0.
If this support level is breached to the downside, it could signal the potential for additional bearish movement, with a target set at the demand zone highlighted in blue around $6300.0.
On the flip side, for the bulls to regain control and initiate the next bullish impulse, a crucial breakthrough above the current consolidation level at $9600.0 is imperative.
This suggests that YFI is currently trapped within a range, emphasizing the significance of monitoring price movements around the mentioned levels.
