Two (2) days ago we brought readers attention to the numerous inverted Pennant formations that were developing throughout the cryptocurrency universe with a focus on a handful of names due to time and space constraints, whereby we stated the following, “we’re starting to see numerous names, both large-cap as well as some of the Altcoins, beginning to carve-out inverted pennant formations as we can observe from the charts below.
Although such formations remain in development and have as of yet to break either topside or to the downside, it’s evident that the formation of such pattern continues to tightly coil where we suspect that it’s only a matter of time before these pennants witness resolution,” which has now come to pass.
We also went on to note, “both investors/traders may want to continue to monitor the action of the here-and-now, which is suggestive that we are going to witness a resolution in one direction or the other in the days ahead.
While we suspect that resolution favors a breach out of the pennants to the downside, as investors/traders, we must always defer to the action of the market itself and leave our biases at the door and be prepared for any and all potential outcomes via proper risk management mitigation measures,” whereby our suspicions were unfounded and proved to be wrong as the Pennants resolved to the upside.
Now that the formation has resolved, let’s take a glance at the short-term 4H charts below to see where we may be headed in the days forthcoming.
As we can observe above, BTC; BCH; ETH as well as LTC have all broken topside out of their inverted Pennant formations. In addition, all four (4) remain in decent shape technically from a short-term perspective, where both investors/traders may witness/enjoy additional gains- ‘follow-through’ in the days ahead.
While the short-term may be suggestive of further gains ahead in order to work off the oversold conditions, we must remember that the primary trend remains lower, evidenced via the year-to-date (YTD) and 1Yr Daily charts, whereby the aforementioned all remain below their 20/50 and 200-day moving averages confirming the overall downtrend.
Thus, while we suspect that we may indeed witness a bit more upside moving forward, we remain cautious as hefty resistance looms above.
BTC – Potential resistance resides at R1 6900; R2 7040-50; R3 7260, while potential support can be found at S1 6425 and S2 6000.
BCH – Potential resistance resides at R1 986; R2 1045-1085; R3 1150-1170, while potential support can be found at S1 800-840 and S2 715-750 Zone.
ETH – Potential resistance resides at R1 550; R2 575-600; R3 625-630, while potential support can be found at S1 480-490 and S2 440-450.
LTC – Potential resistance resides at R1 103; R2 109-112; R3 117-125, while potential support can be found at S1 89-92 and S2 80-85.
The following levels noted above may be utilized as guides as well as providing evidence/clues with respect to the direction moving forward. Risk management remains the name of the game!

NFT(Non-Fungible Token) technology has recently gained huge focus in the blockchain arena and beyond, making waves in the online gaming sector, the art world, and the digital copyrights industry in recent years.

Wisebitcoin Launches Professional-Grade Crypto Exchange
Infrastructure is developing rapidly in the cryptocurrency industry, but the recent launch of the Wisebitcoin cryptocurrency exchange is nonetheless significant in terms of the immediate value it provides to cryptocurrency users. That’s because the exchange has had a beta version available since 2018 while continuing further developments in stealth mode, and already serves over 1.2 million end users with $6+ billion in 24 hour trading volume at the time of its official launch.
In addition to the large user base and deep liquidity, Wisebitcoin also stands out by offering up to 100x leverage to margin traders, with the ability to open a long or short position in their futures market. In the current bullish environment, leverage is a key way that experienced traders increase their exposure and try to profit from volatility.
For example, if a user opened a long position on ETH on January 2nd at a price of $750, they could have greatly multiplied their profits with even a small amount of leverage such as 5x as ETH reached over $1,100 within 48 hours. A simple unleveraged position would have netted $350 in profit, but a 5x position would have netted $1,750 and a 100x leveraged position would have netted an incredible $35,000 in profits from an initial investment of just $750.
Beyond leverage, Wisebitcoin additionally offers a simple and…
