In Bitcoin (BTC), we have seen another sharp and sudden dip over the past 24 hours that was very quickly bought back up by traders pressing a continuation of the recent trending action. The real question now is this: what does this say about the sustainability of the trend now in place over the past three weeks?

As we take a close look today at Bitcoin (BTC) and Ethereum (ETH), we want to analyze this recent dip and how it appears in the context of the past week of action, which includes another similar dip and recovery.

Bitcoin (BTC)

Price Analysis

  • High: $8216
  • Low: $7640
  • Major Resistance Level: $8,500
  • Hourly MACD: Continued Accumulation

As we have noted, Bitcoin (BTC) has been out in front of the cryptocurrency complex during this recent bout of strength. There should be little doubt that this is still the leader in the space.

As we watch this recent upward trend evolve and mature, we have seen several sharp shakeouts that have, in each case, offering traders a new opportunity to join the trend on the long side in BTC.

However, in each recent case, the reaction leg has fallen short of testing the all-important 200-day simple moving average that hovers just above at slightly less than $8500.

At this point, it would appear that a decisive break above that level in coming days may well unleash a brand new test of the $10,000 level in Bitcoin (BTC).

Ethereum (ETH)

Price Analysis

  • High: $471
  • Low: $427
  • Major Resistance Level: $500
  • Hourly MACD: Mild Oversold Reading

One of the elements that we have been tracking closely in the chart for Ethereum (ETH) is how it responds to tests of a trend line that captures the hourly chart lows put in place during the swings and pivots that have appeared on the chart since late June.

Over the past 24 hours, we may well be seeing that perspective put to the test with a break of that trendline.

This will call into question whether Ethereum (ETH) is able to stay with Bitcoin (BTC) and many of the other stronger coins during this bounce, or if we are instead to see a divergence in the space with a more striking sense of lagging action for Ethereum (ETH) and its associated compadres.

At this point, it’s far too early to say, particularly as this breach of the slope that defines the pivot lows achieved over the past month may well be a shakeout or a head fake to the downside before a more decisive move higher to test key resistance at the $500 level.

3 Cryptocurrencies Most Likely to Follow Bitcoin’s Performance

For more than a year, the cryptocurrency market has been dominated by bearish influence, with most coins seeing constant drops, or stagnation, at best. This all changed in the past few months, starting with Bitcoin which once again started leading the market up, bringing one minor rally after another.

BTC itself experienced massive losses in 2018, with its price going down by around 84%. Most other coins among the top 10 mirrored its performance, and some of them experienced even greater losses. However, now that Bitcoin sees gains again, these cryptocurrencies are still following its example, and many of them have seen massive breakouts. Some of the more notable altcoins that followed Bitcoin’s recent example are Ethereum (ETH), Stellar (XLM), and Cardano (ADA).

Ethereum performance mirroring Bitcoin’s price

As mentioned, Bitcoin led every rally so far, but before it did, its price first went through what is known as an ascending triangle pattern. The pattern held for around five months, which is exceptionally long for the crypto world. However, once the pattern was finally broken — the coin’s price skyrocketed, more than doubling itself within only two months.

One thing to note is that Ethereum performed in pretty much the same fashion. After five months of struggle and confusion for investors, the second largest cryptocurrency also managed to break the pattern and skyrocket as well. It…

4 Reasons Why the New Bitcoin Rally Is Unlikely to Stop Now

After more than a year of declining prices, the crypto market is finally seeing a period of serious recovery — one that has already brought digital currencies to heights not seen in over half a year now.

Only days ago, Bitcoin surged past several major resistance levels and managed to exceed its yearly high of over $8,000. Already, many skeptics are predicting the soon end of the bull run, and the possibility of yet another sharp decline. However, there are signs that suggest otherwise — that this bull run is only getting started, and that it will not end anytime soon.

There are four reasons why this is the case, and they are as follows:

1) Bakkt

There is the long-awaited Bitcoin futures exchange, Bakkt, which recently announced that the July test date for Bitcoin futures is soon to be set. Bakkt’s launch was delayed multiple times already, so the announcement came as quite a surprise. However, it appears that it will happen quite soon, after all.

As soon as its arrival becomes a certainty, Bitcoin will likely skyrocket even further, just like gold did when gold ETF appeared in 2013.

2) Bitcoin completely ignored the hacking of Binance

Binance has been the largest crypto exchange by trading volume for a while now, and as such, many expected that, if anything were to happen to it, Bitcoin…

The crypto market’s recovery progresses further, and at a rapid pace, at that. Bitcoin has just surpassed the $8,000 mark, which is the first time its price has been that high since July of last year. In addition, the entire crypto market is making billions within hours.

Bitcoin (BTC) sees another serious surge

In the past 24 hours, the total crypto market cap has gone up by around $24 billion. Meanwhile, BTC price has grown by $1,000 within the same period, as the largest coin traded barely above $7,000 on early Monday. At the time of writing, the coin’s price sits at $8.014.31, with a 14% growth in the last 24 hours. Meanwhile, the BTC market cap has gone up to $141.85 billion, and even the coin’s trading volume surged to over $31 billion.

While many are wondering whether this is a return to the massive heights seen back in 2017 or only a temporary surge which will soon see a correction — no signs of an upcoming decline have been noticed as of yet. In fact, new heights were made and then exceeded multiple times in the past week, with a massive 33% gain during that time. And, with Bitcoin’s dominance at 60%, many are expecting that massive altcoin surges are to be expected as well.

The growth of altcoins can already be seen, as Bitcoin
