In this edition, we'll analyze major assets such as US500, DXY, Gold, Bitcoin, and Ethereum, highlighting crucial levels and potential trade setups.
From Bitcoin approaching the $40,000 mark to ETH hovering inside a weekly resistance, and the Fear & Greed Index signaling 'Greed' for 5 consecutive weeks, this article covers it all.
Are you ready? I am!
Market Heatmap and Fear and Greed Index
To initiate my research, I delved into the analysis by examining the market heatmap, which provided a comprehensive overview of the entire cryptocurrency market.
For another week in a row, the crypto market has shown a bullish trend with BTC up by 5% and ETH by 3.5%.
Consequently, the heatmap reflects a slight bullish sentiment, contributing to upward price movements for most altcoins.
Additionally, it is important to highlight that the Fear & Greed Index is currently indicating 'Greed.'
This suggests that traders maintain an optimistic outlook and are actively purchasing crypto assets, particularly in anticipation of the upcoming ETF approval.
US500, DXY and Gold analysis
We consistently monitor the US500 index to assess the current market sentiment. This practice is crucial because the cryptocurrency market often demonstrates a significant correlation with the stock market, and this interconnection can influence its fluctuations.
The overall trend for US500 remains bullish as the bulls have sustained control for another week. However, it is approaching a significant weekly resistance.
To maintain long-term bullish momentum, it is crucial for the bulls to achieve a breakthrough above $4650.0.
As anticipated last week, the overall bias of US500 remained bullish, and we are currently trading inside the weekly resistance.
To shift the momentum in favor of the bears, a break below the lower red trendline and the last low at $4535.0 is required.
We regularly monitor the DXY - USD Index as a standard part of our routine procedure. This is critical because the value of nearly all assets, including BTC/USD, is closely linked to the USD, which serves as the benchmark currency in the financial markets.
DXY rejected our orange support zone at $102.5 and is currently trading higher.
Thus, we will be looking for buy setups on lower timeframes, knowing that DXY can still trade lower inside the support zone before going up.
For the bulls to take over, a break above the upper red trendline and the last major high in red at $103.9 is necessary.
Meanwhile, DXY would remain bearish as long as it is trading inside the falling red channel, and a movement inside the orange daily support is expected.
After breaking above the $2000.0 round number, Gold has been trading higher in a parabolic manner.
Currently, it is approaching its all-time-high at $2078.0. If broken upward, expect more upside for Gold.
Remember, Gold rises in times of uncertainty and especially war. Actually, it is not the Gold price that is going up; it is everything else going down in relevance to gold.
The bulls will remain in control as long as Gold is trading within the rising channel in blue.
As long as the $2078.0 all-time-high holds, the bears can still initiate one more correction, potentially pushing the price towards the lower blue trendline.
USDT.D, Bitcoin and Ethereum analysis
As a standard practice, I initiate my analysis with USDT.D as it serves as a key indicator of traders' sentiment. USDT.D provides valuable insights into whether traders are optimistic, suggesting increased investment in cryptocurrencies, or pessimistic, indicating a shift towards stablecoins.
This week, USDT.D rejected the 6.5% resistance zone and traded lower. Thus, the overall bias for USDT.D is now bearish, which reflects a bullish sentiment for the crypto market.
In the 4-hour timeframe, considering the medium-term outlook, USDT.D has fallen below the lower limit of the 6.2% range, establishing a bearish trend within the descending red channel.
To shift the momentum from bearish to bullish, a breakout above the upper red trendline is required.
In the meantime, USDT.D remains bearish, and a potential movement towards the 5.83% support is anticipated.
BTC is still overall bullish from both long-term and short-term perspectives. However, it is nearing a robust resistance and round number at $40,000.
For the bulls to remain in control, a break above $40,000 is needed. Meanwhile, the bears can still exert influence and reject the resistance zone.
In the 4-hour timeframe, for the bears to take over in the short term, a break below the last minor low at $39,250 is needed. In this case, a movement towards $38,000 would be expected.
Subsequently, for the bears to take over in the medium term, we need a break below the lower red trendline.
Meanwhile, BTC would be bullish and can still trade higher.
ETH continues to hover within the $2000 - $2250 resistance zone and along the upper black trendline.
To validate a robust bullish trend, a weekly candle closing above $2250.0 is essential. Such a development could potentially lead to an upward movement towards the $3000.0 red resistance zone.
Conversely, there is still the possibility of bears triggering another bearish correction.
On the daily timeframe, the bulls will maintain control as long as the recent significant low marked in red at $2083.0 remains unbroken.
However, if this level is breached downward, we might anticipate a movement towards the last local support at $1900.0.
