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 hovering around the 5% - 5.2% support zone for over a week now.

As long as this support holds, we anticipate a bullish movement, which could be unfavorable for the crypto.

For the bulls to take over, and shift the momentum from bearish to bullish, a breakout above the last major high marked in blue at 5.23% is necessary.

Meanwhile, USDT.D would be confined within a narrow range.

BTC daily chart trading inside a rising channel, however it is currently sitting around the upper bound of the channel and $53,000 resistance.
BTC Chart - Daily Timeframe

Following a 30% surge, BTC encountered rejection around the upper boundary of the orange channel and at $53,000.

For the bulls to maintain control, a breakout above the $53,000 level is necessary.

BTC Chart - 1H Timeframe

In the 1-hour timeframe, BTC has seen little activity, trading within a narrow range between $50,600 and $53,000.

The bulls will remain in control unless the last low marked in red at $50,600 is breached downward. In such a scenario, we anticipate a correction towards $48,000.

5 Altcoins Analysis

Let's start with XVG. It has been trading within a range between the $0.003 support and $0.0044 resistance.

This week, XVG bounced off the $0.003 support and traded higher.

For the bulls to maintain control and take over from a long-term perspective, a break above the $0.0044 resistance level is required.

Meanwhile, XVG can still trade lower to test the $0.003 where we will be looking for new short-term buy setups.

Turning our attention to MATIC. As per our previous analysis, MATIC rejected the $0.72 support and surged by 40%.

Currently, it is rejecting a major weekly resistance at $1.05.

To establish long-term bullish momentum, a breakout above the $1.05 is necessary.

MATIC daily chart hovering around a major weekly resistance and round number $1.

In the 4-hour timeframe, MATIC has been overall bullish, trading within the ascending channel highlighted in red.

The bulls are expected to maintain control, unless the previous major low marked in red at $0.943 is breached downward.

Next on the list for today is OCEAN. As per our previous analysis, OCEAN broke above the previous major high at $0.47 in blue and surged by 58% to reach our target at $0.7.

For the bulls to maintain control, a daily candle close above $0.75 is necessary.

In parallel, if the previous low at $0.655 in red is breached downward, we anticipate the start of a bearish correction towards the $0.55 support level.

After breaking above the $1.45 resistance, STX surged by over 100%, making it one of the top performers of the month.

For the bulls to assume control from a macro perspective, a breakout above $3 is necessary.

In summary, this outlook begins with an evaluation of USDT.D, indicating a bullish sentiment if support holds, potentially impacting the broader cryptocurrency market negatively.

BTC experienced rejection at $53,000, but maintains control unless dropping below $50,600, with potential correction to $48,000.
