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.

After being rejected at the $70,000 resistance, BTC has shown bearish momentum with relatively lower volatility compared to the previous week.

This bearish movement got reflected on the entire crypto market, as we can see a mixture of bearish and bullish trends, with BTC down by -3.21% and ETH by -5.29%.

The Fear & Greed Index has shown a mixture of "Extreme Greed" and “Greed” signals this week, indicating that traders are still optimistic but not with the same intensity as before.

This is quite normal after a massive surge.

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 exhibits a significant correlation with the stock market, and this interconnection can impact its fluctuations.

US500 weekly chart still hovering around the upper bound of the wedge pattern.

The US500 remains overall bullish from a long-term perspective, trading around the upper limit of the blue wedge pattern, indicating an overbought condition.

While the bulls maintain dominance, we expect a continuation towards the $5375 - $5500 resistance zone.

US500 4H chart experienced a shift in momentum from bullish to bearish after breaking below the $5180 low.
US500 Chart - 4H Timeframe

In the 4-hour timeframe, according to our analysis from last week, the bears have taken control after breaking below the rising channel and the last major low at $5180.

As a result, the momentum has shifted from bullish to bearish, with US500 trading within the descending wedge pattern outlined in blue.

We consistently monitor the DXY - USD Index as part of our routine analysis. This is crucial because the value of nearly all assets, including BTC/USD, is closely tied to the USD, which serves as the benchmark currency in the financial market.

DXY daily chart rejecting the $105 resistance.
DXY Chart - Daily Timeframe

According to our previous analysis, DXY was rejected at the $105 resistance level and traded lower.

For the bulls to maintain long-term control, a breakout above the $105 resistance is required.

DXY 4H chart overall bullish trading within the rising wedge in blue.
DXY Chart - 4H Timeframe

As anticipated, DXY was rejected at the upper boundary of the blue wedge pattern and traded lower.

Currently, DXY is hovering near the lower boundary of the wedge, prompting us to anticipate a bullish response, particularly upon breaking above the last major high marked in orange at $104.5.

GOLD MONTHLY chart overall bullish and heading towards $2500.
GOLD Chart - Monthly Timeframe

Gold maintains an overall bullish outlook from a macro perspective, and we anticipate a continuation towards the upper blue and brown trendlines, as well as the $2500 round number.

GOLD 4H chart is also bullish medium-term trading within the rising channel.
GOLD Chart - 4H Timeframe

In the 4-hour timeframe, medium-term control will be maintained by the bulls as long as trading remains within the rising orange channel.

A breach below the $2300 support level would signify a short-term shift in momentum, with the bears potentially taking control for a correction movement towards the lower orange trendline.

USDT.D, Bitcoin and Ethereum analysis

As a standard practice, I begin my analysis with USDT.D as it serves as a critical indicator of traders' sentiment. USDT.D provides valuable insights into whether traders are optimistic, signaling increased investment in cryptocurrencies, or pessimistic, indicating a shift towards stablecoins.

USDT.D daily chart rejecting the 4% support.
USDT.D Chart - Daily Timeframe

USDT.D bounced back after rejecting the 4% support zone, yet it remains within a narrow range, indicating a flat correction within the falling orange channel.

USDT.D 4H hovering within a range short-term between 4.18% and 4.66%.
USDT.D Chart - 4H Timeframe

In the 4-hour timeframe, in line with our previous analysis, the bulls took control following the break above the previous major high at 4.18%.

As long as the 4.18% level holds, we anticipate a continuation towards the major structure highlighted in blue at 4.66%.

BTC 4H chart rejecting the $70,000 and upper bound of a symmetrical triangle.
BTC Chart - 4H Timeframe

As expected in our previous analysis, BTC broke above the previous high in orange at $66,450 and traded higher.

Currently, BTC is hovering around the upper boundary of the symmetrical triangle and near the $70,000 round number.

For the bulls to maintain control from a medium-term perspective, a break above the $70,000 is necessary.

BTC 1H chart bullish short-term trading within a rising channel.
BTC Chart - 1H Timeframe

Short-term control will remain with the bulls as long as BTC trades within the rising orange channel.

In parallel, if the last major low in orange at $67,900 mark is broken downward, we will expect the beginning of the bearish correction phase towards the lower red trendline.

ETH 4H chart overall bearish after breaking below the $3430 major low.
ETH Chart - 4H Timeframe

As mentioned last week, if the last low at $3430 is breached downward, the bears would take control.

Currently, ETH is retesting the $3430 structure, suggesting a potential continuation of bearish momentum.

ETH 1H chart showing the last low in orange at $3333 that we need a break below for the bears to take over.
ETH Chart - 1H Timeframe

The bears will establish control upon breaking below the $3333 major low marked in orange.

However, ETH still has the potential to trade higher within the $3500 - $3600 resistance zone.
