In the last 24 hours, the crypto-market has shown a different pattern than it has shown in previous twelve days, with the price of Bitcoin going down by $200 after staggering at $6,400 for days.

Bitcoin, in particular, has seen an increment in its trading volume of about 20% from $3.5 billion – $4.1 billion, showing an increase in the trading trends of the crypto-exchange market on different trading platforms worldwide.

Bitcoin has formed several highs and lows in the past one-hour; hence, the recent increase on BTC, which has been stationary this month, could potentially increase its price on a short-term.

Bitcoin currently has two Fibonacci retracement levels: 50% and 61.8%. The 50% Fib level was its earlier support zone as this matches with 100 Small Moving Average. The 61.8% Fib level matches the 200 Small Moving Average, almost.

It is important to understand that BTC’s 100 SMA is quite lower than its 200 SMA, which shows that a down-trend might occur if it doesn’t sustain its current moment. BTC’s trading oscillator is showing a great selling pressure. Also, BTC’s RSI is gradually increasing at the moment, but it might move sidewards, forming a range-bound scenario.

Will Bitcoin Move up?

There have been lots of speculations that despite BTC’s price seems dormant for now, its price is garnering some momentum, and it’s poised for a breakout beyond the $6000 area.

Till yesterday, Bitcoin seemed to move up above the bull pennant on the 4-hour. Bitcoin closed-up and moved beyond 50 and 20-day EMA yesterday and the MACD is currently gathering some bull trends after some downfall earlier today.

The market saw a slight increase in the price of BTC on Saturday, despite the fact that crypto-exchange market was set to decrease over the weekend. The slight increase in the price of Bitcoin over the weekend shows a potential short-term increase in the coming days.

It is, however, more likely, that if Bitcoin can sustain its current momentum and see it go up in the next 7-days, it is possible that it will rise sharply, and so as other cryptos with a significant market capitalization (such as Ethereum and Ripple’s XRP).

It is also important to know that last week, we saw a sideward market trend, but that didn’t stop relatively little cryptocurrencies to record small profits – but other major coins like BTC, XRP, and ETH couldn’t show any sign of recovery.

The rise of Bitcoin’s trading volume comes as a good news and it has caused major BTC traders to wait for a considerable move in the market that can turn things around to the positive side.

There are certain upside actions that can cause a major breakout on the price of Bitcoin. We do know that SEC hasn’t approved the Bitcoin’s ETF, and an approval will definitely cause a big increase. Although, there are still prospects to look out for as institutional investments are coming up.

Subsequently, other factors such as the trade pressures and the Brexit discussions may cause BTC traders not to take up risk and invest.

Nonetheless, many crypto experts believe that the price of Bitcoin would increase for sure, but it will lie on the ability of Bitcoin to maintain its current trade volume and momentum in the next few days or so.

3 Altcoins That Are Outperforming Bitcoin and Will Likely Face Consequences

The crypto market is going through a period of massive recovery in the past few months, which has caused the investors’ optimism to return. While all eyes are on Bitcoin (BTC), as usual, the largest coin seems to be struggling with a major resistance level at $8,000 at the moment. While this level was breached a few times now, every breach resulted in a correction.

At the time of writing, BTC is approaching this level yet again, with its current price being at $7,985,79, and rising further. The price managed to grow by 1.06% in the last 24 hours, and will undoubtedly hit $8,000 in a matter of hours, if not sooner.

However, while Bitcoin continues to remain volatile and struggles with waves of growth and decline, there are some altcoins that are not following its path. Of course, most of them are performing in pretty much the same manner as BTC, as they always had. But, a few coins have actually managed to outperform Bitcoin in recent months.

While optimists believe that this might lead to decoupling from Bitcoin — something that only Binance Coin (BNB) managed to pull off up to this point — it is likely that there will be consequences for these cryptos. This likely means that a price drop for these specific coins awaits somewhere in the near future, as outperforming BTC…

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…

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…
