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).

After breaching the 5.63% support, bears have taken control, and we anticipate additional downward movement towards the 5.2% support.

Bearish dominance will persist as long as the 5.63% resistance holds.

In the 4-hour timeframe, bears will maintain control as long as trading occurs within the bearish channel outlined in red.

For a shift in momentum from bearish to bullish, bulls need to secure a breakout above the last major high marked in red at 5.77%.

After surpassing the $40,000 resistance, BTC has displayed bullish behavior, now approaching the upper boundary of the orange wedge pattern.

As it nears the $48,000 resistance zone, we anticipate the possibility of bears initiating a correction.

In line with my previous market outlook, we've been monitoring potential buy setups around the lower boundary of the red symmetrical triangle.

BTC has rejected the lower red trendline and experienced upward movement. This week, BTC successfully breached the $44,500 previous major high. Consequently, as long as this support remains intact, we anticipate a movement towards the $48,000 resistance.

5 Altcoins Analysis

Let's start with ARB. After successfully breaking above the $1.35 resistance zone, ARB experienced upward movement in a parabolic fashion.

However, today ARB encountered resistance at a significant high marked in gray at $1.8.

To sustain bullish momentum, a daily candle closing above $1.8 is required. Conversely, if the $1.8 level holds, there is potential for a significant correction back to the $1.35 support, initiated by the bears.

Turning our focus to XEC, this particular altcoin has been in a consolidation phase, confined within a narrow range bordered by our $0.000032 support and $0.000042 resistance.

To sustain bullish control and potentially initiate a macro bullish trend, a weekly candle closure above $0.000032 is imperative for the bulls. This level acts as a pivotal threshold for long-term momentum.

On the daily timeframe, XEC has maintained an overall bullish stance, operating within the confines of the ascending broadening wedge pattern outlined in red.

To shift the momentum and provide an opportunity for the bears to take control, a decisive breach below the last significant low marked in orange at $0.0000365 is imperative.

Should this occur, it would anticipate a subsequent movement toward the $0.000032 support level.

In line with our prior analysis, HBAR successfully surpassed the $0.07 resistance, resulting in an upward price trajectory.

At present, HBAR finds itself positioned near a formidable resistance level at the key round number of $0.1. To affirm and sustain bullish momentum, a prerequisite is a daily candle close above $0.1.

Conversely, should HBAR experience a decline below the recent low identified in red at $0.0835, this would signify a shift in momentum from bullish to bearish, potentially prompting a downward movement toward the $0.07 support.

Analyzing DUSK, the altcoin has exhibited a consolidation pattern within the boundaries of our identified range, fluctuating between $0.1 and $0.25.

Presently, DUSK is positioned in proximity to a resistance zone. To assert control and establish a bullish trend from a broader perspective, a pivotal requirement is a weekly candle closure surpassing the $0.25 mark. This would signify a potential shift in market dynamics favoring the bulls.

Examining the daily timeframe for DUSK, it's apparent that the bullish momentum prevails, with control retained by the bulls as long as the recent low in red at $0.18 remains unbreached.

A potential scenario would involve a move towards the $0.15 support if the mentioned level is broken downward.

XLM is currently experiencing a consolidative phase within a tight range, particularly around the resistance level at $0.138.

The bullish scenario for XLM involves a prerequisite daily candle close above $0.138, which, if achieved, could pave the way for a potential upward movement towards the $0.18 mark.

Conversely, in the event of bearish momentum taking control, a decisive break below the recent significant low marked in orange at $0.12 is required.

Such a scenario could signify the initiation of a substantial correction phase, potentially leading to a downward movement towards the previous low at $0.118.
