While crypto-focused technical analysts often spend the majority of their time on individual cryptocurrencies with charts priced in dollars, some of the best technical setups and opportunities are often found in key pairs.

Today, we’re going to focus on the technical pictures for ETH/BTC and ETC/BTC, which should give us an idea of relative strength among major large-cap coins as well as allow for detection of buy and sell signals in these important pairs.

ETH/BTC

Price Analysis

  • High: 0.046336
  • Low: 0.044795
  • 24-Hour Volume: 7.188K
  • MACD Signal: Sell

ETH/BTC is the classic pairing, pitting the two arguably most important coins against one another.

The story here really depends upon your time frame. Looking over the longer time frame – going back 18 months to two years – shows us clear outperformance for those long this pairing.

However, over the past two months, the relative picture has been moving sharply in the opposite direction, with the chart for the ETH/BTC pairing breaking sharply underneath its major moving averages to take out its late March and early April lows.

The 14-day RSI indicator is now down printing in the teens showing a severe oversold state. But, as they say, “the trend is your friend”, even if this particular trend has hardly been friendly for those holding exposure long ETH/BTC.

ETC/BTC

Price Analysis

  • High: 0.002004
  • Low: 0.0019062
  • 24-Hour Volume: 50.871K
  • MACD Signal: Sell

ETC/BTC has been extraordinarily steady in maintaining a tight trading range going all the way back to October 2017.

However, given the fact that ETC is now more readily tradable in fiat currency terms based on growing acceptance among exchanges, we may be about to see this change.

At this point, the ETC/BTC pair has been holding support in its trading range just underneath the 0.002 level, which has acted like a shelf of support for the majority of 2018.

If the widespread assumption about Bitcoin needing to lead the way higher for the cryptocurrency complex as a whole turns out to be on target, then ETC/BTC may well be about to retest its late 2017 lows now that it has broken solidly beneath all of its major moving averages over the past 10 days.

Happy Trading~

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 New Rally Has Arrived: Crypto Market Cap Goes up by $24 Billion Within a Day

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
