ETHUSD: Double Bottom Pattern Above $2,900

Ethereum failed to continue its bullish momentum last week, and started to decline after touching a high of 3,299 on April 8th.

It touched an intraday low of 3,093 in the Asian trading session, and an intraday high of 3,142 in today’s European trading session.

We can clearly see a double bottom pattern above the $2,900 handle which is a bullish pattern and signifies the end of a bearish phase and the start of a bullish phase in the markets.

ETH is now trading just above its pivot level of 3,111 and moving in a mildly bullish channel. The price of ETHUSD is now testing its classic resistance level of 3,120 and Fibonacci resistance level of 3,128, after which the path towards 3,200 will get cleared.

The relative strength index is at 59 indicating a STRONG demand for Ethereum and the continuation of the bullish trend.

Both the average directional change and commodity channel index are indicating a neutral level which means that the prices are due to enter into a consolidation phase.

Most of the technical indicators are giving a STRONG BUY market signal.

Most of the moving averages are giving a STRONG BUY signal, and we are now looking at the levels of $3,300 to $3,350 in the short-term range.

ETH is now trading below both the 100 hourly and exponential moving averages.

  • Bullish reversal seen in Ether above the $2,900 mark
  • The short-term range appears to be mildly BULLISH
  • The daily RSI is below 50 at 48 indicating a NEUTRAL market
  • The average true range is indicating LESSER market volatility

Ether: Bullish Reversal Seen Above $2,900
spacer.png

ETHUSD is now moving in a mildly bullish channel with the price trading above the $3,100 handle in the European trading session today.

Ethereum is now slowly preparing for its next move against the US dollar. We can see the formation of a contraction triangle pattern, which shows price building energy, and we can see the A-C and B-D trendlines.

ETHUSD is now facing its immediate resistance levels of $3,128 and $3,300, after which we will see a linear progression towards the level of $3,400.

The key support levels to watch are $2,906 and $3,034, and the prices of ETHUSD need to remain above these levels for the bullish trend to continue.

ETH has gained 2.05% with a price change of $62.64 in the past 24hrs and has a trading volume of 15.476 billion USD.

We can see a decrease of 19.10% in the total trading volume in the last 24 hrs, which appears to be normal.

The Week Ahead

Last week, we saw Ethereum decline from its highs of 3,299 to the lows of 2,951, but now we can see that the prices have entered a consolidation phase above the level of 3,000.

If the price of ETHUSD remains above $3,000, we may see a linear progression towards the levels of $3,200 and $3,350 this week.

The immediate short-term outlook for Ether has turned mildly BULLISH; the medium-term outlook has turned neutral; and the long-term outlook for Ether is NEUTRAL in present market conditions.

This week, Ether is expected to move in a range between $3,100 and $3,300, and next week, it is expected to enter a consolidation phase above $3,300.

Technical Indicators:

The Williams percent range: at -44.92 indicating a BUY

US Dollar Strengthened Ahead of the Federal Reserve’s May Meeting
spacer.png

The main event of the Easter week was the European Central Bank (ECB) meeting that ended last Thursday. The central bank left the monetary policy unchanged and even though it sounded more hawkish than expected, the euro lost ground against the US dollar.

The ECB announced that it would end its asset purchases in the third quarter of this year but acknowledged that the ECB and the Fed are on different paths in their policy normalization plans.

While the ECB may deliver one or two rate hikes this year, the Fed already hiked once. Moreover, many voices inside the FOMC Committee favor a 50bp rate hike in May, thus widening the gap between the interest rates on the two sides of the Atlantic.

Since COVID-19 started two years ago, many have been shocked by the Fed’s and other central banks’ responses to the pandemic. Monetary and fiscal policies expansion have led to excessive inflation, hurting savings and driving investors into inflation-protecting assets.

Some bought cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin and Ethereum in the hope that they will keep their value intact. Some other ones bought gold, the traditional hedge against inflation.

But the one currency that did appreciate was the US dollar. With all the doom and gloom over the years, the US dollar remains the de-facto world’s reserve currency.

spacer.png

The greenback has no rival, as almost 60% of the world’s reserves are in dollars. The euro comes in a distant second place, while the Japanese yen is in third place.

This is an important statistic ahead of the Fed’s May meeting. The three central banks (the Fed, the ECB, and the Bank of Japan) have different and divergent monetary policies.

As mentioned earlier, the Fed started to tighten the monetary policy. Excessive inflation will push the  Fed to hike at every meeting in 2022 and, most likely, more than 25bp.

Moreover, the Fed has begun the process of shrinking its balance sheet. Quantitative tightening is the opposite of quantitative easing, thus contributing to even tighter financial conditions.

The ECB, as argued above, is nowhere near the Fed in terms of policy normalization. While inflation in Europe is above the ECB’s target, the war in Ukraine prevents the central bank from raising rates too fast.

As for the Bank of Japan is involved in a yield curve control process that led to one of the fastest depreciation on record for the Japanese yen.

Therefore, the central banks of the three top currencies in which reserves are kept have divergent policies. They all favor a stronger dollar ahead of the Fed’s May meeting and beyond.

ETHUSD is now moving in a mildly bullish channel, with the price trading above the $2,900 handle in the European trading session today.

Ethereum’s demand is increasing, which is leading to a slow rise in its levels, and now we are looking at the immediate targets of $3,000 and $3,150.

ETHUSD is now facing its immediate resistance level of $3,149 and $3,203, after which we will see a linear progression towards $3,300. The key support levels to watch are $2,869 and $2,880, and the price of ETHUSD need to remain above these levels for the continuation of the bullish trend.

The first major resistance is near the $1,935 level. A clear break above the $1,935 barrier might call for a move towards $2,000.

A clear break above the 1.0620 resistance could push EUR/USD towards 1.0700. If the bulls remain in action, the pair could revisit the 1.0750 resistance zone in the near term.

On the downside, the pair might find support near the 1.0500 level. There is also a key bullish trend line forming with support near 1.0500 on the hourly chart. If there is a downside break below the 1.0500 support, the pair might accelerate lower. The next major support sits near the 1.0470 level, below which there is a risk of a larger decline.

ETHUSD: Bullish Engulfing Pattern above $2,750

Ethereum was moving in a bearish phase last week and touched a low of 2,725 on May 1st, after which it entered into a consolidation channel above the $2,750 handle.

This week, ETHUSD started moving in a bullish channel, and managed to cross the $2,900 handle in the European trading session today.

We can clearly see a bullish engulfing pattern above $2,750 which signifies the end of a bearish trend and the start of a bullish trend.

ETH is now trading just below its pivot level of 2,936 and moving in a mild bullish momentum. The price of ETHUSD is now facing its classic resistance level of 2,944, Fibonacci resistance level of 2,960, and is now aiming towards the $3,000 handle in the US trading session.

ETHUSD has consolidated its gains above $2,900 in the European trading session, and we can clearly see that the bullish channel is back.

We are now aiming for the upsides of $3,000 to $3,100 in today’s US trading session. The retracement from $2,721 was very strong which suggests that there is more room for the upsides in Ethereum this month, and a level of $3,500 is the next target.

We can see the MA crossover pattern above the level of 2,850 which means that in the immediate short term we will see the continuation of the bullish channel.

ETH has gained 2.86% with a price change of 81.25$ in the past 24hrs, and has a trading volume of 17.890 billion USD.

We can see an increase of 36% in the trading volume as compared to yesterday which means that new buyers are entering the markets and waiting for further correction in the levels of Ethereum.

The Week Ahead

Ether is printing above $2,980 today, and we can see levels of $3,000 to $3,200 this week.

The medium-to-long term outlook for Ether remains bullish with targets of above 3,500 in May.

With the US Federal Reserve increasing its benchmark interest rate by half a percentage point, the price of Ethereum continues rising along with other top cryptocurrencies.

Ether has already broken its major resistance level of $2,800 and is now facing the next resistance level of $3,000.

spacer.png

BTCUSD: Rounding Bottom Pattern Above $29,700

Bitcoin was not able to sustain its bullish momentum last week, and after touching a high of $40,000 on May 4th, started to decline heavily against the US dollar.

The short-selling continued pushing the price of BTC below the $30,000 handle, after which we can observe some consolidation.

We can see a pullback in the market at levels above $30,000, which is expected to continue towards $35,000.

We can clearly see a rounding bottom pattern above the $29,700 handle — which is a bullish reversal pattern signifying the end of a downtrend and a shift towards an uptrend.

The Stoch and Williams percent range are indicating an overbought level which means that in the immediate short term, a decline in the prices is expected.

The relative strength index is at 44 indicating a WEAK demand for bitcoin at the current market level.

Bitcoin is now moving below its 100 hourly simple and 200 hourly exponential MAs.

Some of the major technical indicators are giving a BUYsSignal, which means that in the immediate short term, we are expecting targets of $32,000 and $34,000.

The average true range is indicating LESSER market volatility with a mildly bullish momentum.

  • Bitcoin: bullish reversal seen above $29,700
  • The StochRSI is indicating an OVERBOUGHT level
  • The price is now trading just below its pivot level of $31,810
  • Some of the moving averages are giving a BUY market signal

Bitcoin: Bullish Reversal Seen Above $29,700
spacer.png

Bitcoin has moved out of the falling trend seen last week and now continues to consolidate its gains above the $30,000 handle in the European trading session. The bounce that we have seen above $30,000 is expected to continue this week, and we are now looking at targets of $32,000 and $35,000 in the medium-term range.

The immediate short-term outlook for bitcoin is mildly bullish; the medium-term outlook has turned neutral; the long-term outlook remains neutral under present market conditions.

We are now looking at possible reversal and short selling at 32,946 and 34,350 as indicated by the MA50 and MA100 crossover patterns. This is further validated by an overbought level seen in the Stoch and Williams percent range.

The price of BTCUSD is now facing its classic resistance level of $32,009, Fibonacci resistance level of $32,240 after which the path towards $34,000 will get cleared.

In the last 24hrs, BTCUSD has declined by -5.59% with a price change of 1872$, and has a 24hr trading volume of USD 81.634 billion. We can see an increase of 111% in the trading volume as compared to yesterday, which is due to the heavy selling seen across global cryptocurrency markets.

The Week Ahead

The price of bitcoin touched an intraday low of $29,829 in the Asian trading session, and an intraday high of $32561 in today’s European trading session.

The daily RSI is printing at 30 which means that the medium range demand continues to be weak. This is also an opportunity for long-term investors to enter into the markets at lower levels.

The current market condition is suitable for entering into a BUY position with targets of $33,000 and $35,000 next week.

The price of BTCUSD will need to remain above the important support level of $30,000 this week.

The weekly outlook is projected at $33,000 with a consolidation zone of $32,500.

Bitcoin Down by 50%

The price of bitcoin touched an all-time high of $67,566 in November, 2021, and with the current market price of $31,570 marks a drop of 50% in its value.

The ongoing global economic crisis, rise in the interest rates, the Russia-Ukraine war and its effects on the global investor sentiments are driving bitcoin to historic lows, which has led to a decline in the total market capitalization of bitcoin to $600 billion USD.

Technical Indicators

The StochRSI (14-day): at 74.78 indicating a BUY

The average directional change(14-day): at 28.58 indicating a NEUTRAL level

The rate of price change: at 1.349 indicating a BUY

Cryptocurrencies Under Pressure as Bitcoin’s Slide Continues
spacer.png

Bitcoin is the most important cryptocurrency, and its price fluctuations influence the entire cryptocurrency market. When the price of bitcoin advances or declines, all other coins do the same.

In other words, the thousands of other coins literally depend on what bitcoin does.

So far this year, bitcoin has been under pressure: it opened the year around $50,000, and now threatens to drop through the $30,000 level. Only this time around, the decline in bitcoin’s price is more relevant than in the past. Nowadays, bitcoin has been adopted by market players other than retail traders.

For years, retail traders and believers in the cryptocurrency space have hoped that institutional investors would adopt bitcoin. They have, but with increased adoption came increased risks. For example, now that bitcoin is part of numerous portfolios, it acts like the general market does. As such, the dollar’s strength in 2022 is seen in the price of bitcoin too.

Head-and-Shoulders Pattern Points To $20,000

One of the most powerful reversal patterns is called “head-and-shoulders”. It is formed by two shoulders and one head, resembling the human body, and it has a measured move, calculated by measuring the distance from the highest point in the pattern to the neckline, and projecting it to the downside. This is the minimum distance that the market needs to travel in order to confirm the reversal.

In bitcoin’s case, the measured move points to a decline towards $20,000. Such a move alone is enough to put further pressure on bitcoin hodlers, but also on the financial system.

Last week, MicroStrategy, a US-based publicly listed company that had invested heavily in bitcoin, revealed that it would receive a margin call should the price of bitcoin drop to $21,000.

To buy its  bitcoins, the company borrowed money, and now it needs to serve $2.5 billion in debt with $500 million in revenues. As such, a decline in the price of bitcoin is not a risk only for retail hodlers, but also for other financial market participants.

To sum up, the price of bitcoin remains bearish while trading below the head-and-shoulders’ neckline. With every day that passes, the pressure mounts, and retail hodlers may be forced to liquidate just as big players are too.

It would also be interesting to see what other big investors, such as Tesla, would do with their bitcoin holdings when the price declines below their buying price. A move below $30,000 would put pressure on Tesla, and when and if big investors flee, it might be the end of the cryptocurrency market as we know it.

ETHUSD: Double Top Pattern Below $2,450

Ethereum was unable to sustain its bullish momentum last week, and after touching a high of 2,960 on May 4, started to decline heavily against the US dollar.

We can see the continuation of the bearish momentum this week, and the decline continues pulling down the prices of Ethereum below the 1,900 handle in the European trading session today.

The global investor sentiment is very weak, which is the cause of the massive slide in the cryptocurrency markets, including Ethereum.

After touching an intraday low of $1,780, we can see some pullback action and a move towards the consolidation channel above the $1,800 handle.

We can clearly see a double top pattern below the $2,450 handle, which is a bearish pattern; it signifies the end of a bullish phase and the start of a bearish phase in the markets.

ETH is now trading just below its pivot level of 1,908 and  moving into a consolidation channel. The price of ETHUSD is now testing its classic support level of 1,820 and Fibonacci support level of 1,884, after which the path towards 1,800 will get cleared.

The relative strength index is at 35, indicating a WEAK demand for Ethereum and the continuation of the bearish trend.

The StochRSI is indicating a neutral level which means that the prices are due to remain into a consolidation phase in the short term.

All of the technical indicators are giving a STRONG SELL market signal.

All of the moving averages are giving a STRONG SELL signal, and we are now looking at the levels of $1,850 to $1,800 in the short-term range.

ETH is now trading Below both the 100 hourly and exponential MAs.

  • Ether: a bearish reversal is seen below the $2,450 mark
  • The short-term range appears to be mildly BEARISH
  • The daily RSI is below 50 at 24, indicating an OVERSOLD market
  • The average true range is indicating HIGH market volatility

Ether: Bearish Reversal Seen Below $2,450
spacer.png

ETHUSD is now moving in a mildly bearish channel with the prices trading below the $2,000 handle in the European trading session today.

We can see an MA5 crossover pattern located at 1,884, which means that a potential bullish reversal is possible after touching these levels.

ETHUSD is now facing its immediate support level of $1,861 and $1,841 after which we will see a linear progression towards the level of $1,800.

The key resistance levels to watch are $1,931 and $1,976, and the prices of ETHUSD need to cross these levels for a potential bullish reversal.

ETH has declined by 19.67% with a price change of 468.56$ in the past 24hrs and has a trading volume of 54.488 Billion USD.

We can see an Increase of 53.79% in the total trading volume in the last 24 hrs. which is due to the heavy selling by long-term investors.

The Week Ahead

The global economic factors and the increase in the interest rate announced by the Fed  have made the US dollar stronger, which has led to a massive decline in the prices of Ethereum.

The delay in the implementation of the ETH 2.0 upgrade is also keeping the investors away from the markets.

The immediate short-term outlook for Ether has turned mildly BEARISH; the medium-term outlook has turned neutral; the long-term outlook for Ether is NEUTRAL in present market conditions.

This week, Ether is expected to move in a range between $1,800 and $2,000, and next week, Ether is expected to enter into a consolidation phase above the level of $2,000.

Technical Indicators:

The Stoch (9,6): at 22.35 indicating a SELL

Investors Keep Selling the JPY Despite Falling to the Lowest Since 2002 vs. the US Dollar

spacer.png

One of the big stories in the FX market in 2022 is the spectacular drop of the Japanese yen (JPY). Since March, it has depreciated against all its peers to reach the weakest levels vs. the US dollar since 2002.

Interestingly enough, the selloff comes when investors had all the reasons to buy the Japanese currency – not to sell it. Historically, the JPY acted as a safe-haven currency.

Effectively, it means that traders bought the JPY and sold US equities in times of uncertainty. Well, one did happen – US stocks are down by about -20% or more, depending on the sector. But the JPY did the opposite.

BOJ’s Measures Put Pressure on the Yen

The trigger of the yen’s weakness was the Bank of Japan’s policy. It continues to suppress bond yields, making JGBs or Japanese Government Bonds less attractive – and the yen too.

This is a central bank that diverges from other major central banks in the sense that it keeps easing conditions while others have started to tighten. The Federal Reserve of the United States is the perfect example, doing exactly the opposite of what the Bank of Japan is doing. Hence, the yen reached the weakest level in more than two decades against the US dollar.

But before blaming it all on the Bank of Japan, one thing should ring a bell for FX traders. If it was only the JPY declining the way it did, then the Bank of Japan was the sole reason for it.

Except it wasn’t.

The other safe-haven currency, the Swiss franc, dropped even more against the US dollar. The USD/CHF exchange rate rose above parity for the first time in many years as investors ran from the so-called safe-haven currencies and bought the US dollar – the world’s reserve currency.

So, what comes next?

Because of the Swiss franc is dropping in a similar or even more aggressive fashion, it means that the price action in the FX market is driven by the US dollar and the Fed and not by the Bank of Japan and the yen. Hence, look for the trend to continue as the move may have just started.
