From a technical perspective, several of the most highly liquid and highly traded cryptocurrencies have begun to hint at some interesting new potential on their charts over recent days.
This type of action is not definitive at this stage – there’s very little confirmation. However, the game here is a probabilistic one that involves close scrutiny of past and present chart patterns mixed with the identification of an advantageous risk:reward statistical edge.
From that standpoint, both Bitcoin (BTC) and Ethereum (ETH) are clearly worth a closer look at the present as both coins are starting to show off some very interesting bullish potential provided key levels continue to hold firm.
- High: $7700
- Low: $7378.26
- Major Resistance Level: $7750
- Hourly MACD: Strong Upward Momentum
Naturally, everyone knows Bitcoin (BTC) has been in a serious bear market trend over the past seven months. However, recent action suggests that the potential for some form of upward inflection should be taken seriously.
First off, we have begun to see signs in recent days of the potential for the affirmation of the formation of a higher low at key support. This higher low pivot stands in relation to the late June dive down well beneath the $6000 level in BTC.
The recent hold at that same level over the last few days suggests that the recent break back above 50-day simple moving average and the $7000 level over recent days is a major inflection the market context.
As noted above, given the direction of the trend on the chart over the larger time frame, this is hardly a confirmation, but it is very promising from a technical standpoint. In other words, the action over the past week clearly suggests that Bitcoin (BTC) is beginning to show a set of signals that demand greater focus from active traders over coming days, and the clear possibility that the bear market has run its course.
- High: $469.30
- Low: $454.55
- Major Resistance Level: $500
- Hourly MACD: Emerging Upward Momentum
Ethereum (ETH) has been positively divergent to Bitcoin (BTC) over the past several months, meaning that it has been slightly outperforming on a swing for swing basis in relation to the other clear and key events shown on the chart, internally speaking.
And this continues to bear itself out.
As we noted above, Bitcoin (BTC) has been showing some interesting signs of the possibility of a bullish higher low. In fact, Ethereum (ETH) is posting perhaps even more convincing signs of the same phenomenon, and the potential for a break back above the $500 level over the very near term.
In terms of identifying the other side of the equation – risk – one need only look at the trendline formed over the lows made in this coin over the past 3 to 4 months.
While some interesting potential bullish signals may be coming into place for ETH, one getting involved here on a speculative technical basis certainly would not want to stay involved through a move back underneath that trendline.

Blockchain technology outshines Bitcoin and Gold during global pandemic
As the popularity of cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin begins to level up with investments made in metals such as Gold, together they have both made significant advantages for investors who have taken a leap to invest in them.
However, thanks to the pandemic and the dynamic shift in investing and the economy, many investors have seen fluctuating losses and gains thanks to the uncertainty of the current business world.
Many investors that backed companies who have exposure to blockchain technology have seen an approximate amount of 54% return on investments over the past year. This is even after considering how hard the global tech market and companies have been hit since the beginning of the pandemic.
What is blockchain technology?
Blockchain technology was first introduced as a supportive technology for Bitcoin. A blockchain is a simple, unchangeable and un-hackable digital ledger that holds transactions in little blocks attached to a chain. The transaction is duplicated and distributed across the entire network of systems on the blockchain, making it available for everyone on the network to see.
Each block in the chain contains various transactions which are recorded on the participant ledger every time a transaction takes place. The database is decentralised and is managed by multiple participants known as Distributed Ledger Technology (DLT).
Although blockchain technology was birthed from Bitcoin and was widely adopted for the use of cryptocurrencies, the way it works and its security has made…

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. The strongest feature of NFTs is that “NFTs are unique digital assets that cannot be replaced or forged”. Unlike fungible tokens such as Bitcoin or Ether, NFTs are not interchangeable for other tokens of the same type but instead each NFT has a unique value and specific information that cannot be replaced. This fact makes NFTs the perfect solution to record and prove ownership of digital and real-world items like works of art, game items, limited-edition collectibles, and more.
NFTs are already being actively traded in markets globally. For…
