While the action has been somewhat monotonous over the past several weeks for cryptocurrency traders – down, down, and more down – the picture is actually a little bit more two-sided and interesting when we focus on various large market cap coin pairings, particularly with some interesting coins when paired with Bitcoin.

For example, in the analysis below, we’re going to take a look at two very interesting pairs – BNB/BTC and XLM/BTC. In each case, the relationship between the short-term charts in the longer-term patterns is revealing.

BNB/BTC

Price Analysis

  • High: 0.0016965
  • Low: 0.0015138
  • 24-Hour Volume: 352.194K
  • MACD Signal: Sell

Without a doubt, the BNB/BTC pair is one of the more interesting technical pictures in the crypto complex at present. Binance Coin (BNB) has been one of the sharpest outperformers across the cryptocurrency space since late 2017, consistently outperforming Bitcoin all the way into this summer.

However, as we started to trigger the new phase or leg of this bear market, we are beginning to see some flight to safety which is beginning to cripple the trend in the BNB/BTC pair, knocking this chart down through its 50-day simple moving average to test support at a rising 200-day simple moving average.

In the process, BNB/BTC broke just underneath its 200-day simple moving average, thus registering a deeply oversold reading on the 14-day RSI, which cracked under the 20 level in terms of raw indicator reading.

At the same time, this BNB/BTC chart broke beneath a price shelf defined by the January 2018 highs in confluence with the March 2018 highs. This action also quickly broke beneath a strong trend line that you can see drawn in the chart above.

However, if we begin to see some more adventurous trading reemerge in the second half of the year, the BNB/BTC pair may be a very interesting place to look for speculative outperformance.

XLM/BTC

Price Analysis

  • High: 0.0000361
  • Low: 0.00003492
  • 24-Hour Volume: 126.696K
  • MACD Signal: Sell

By comparison, the XLM/BTC pair is both thinly traded and wallowing. That said, this pairing is also outperforming many others, with the current price level sitting above its 50-day simple moving average about midway through a trading range defined by the span seen in the mid-July rally shown on this chart.

The essence of the XLM/BTC pattern at present is a symmetrical triangle with the price very near the axis point as we come into the action today.

The triangle nature of this pattern suggests something of a battle between XLM and BTC for the honor and title of “least dirty shirt in the hamper”. In other words, relative to fiat currencies – and especially the US dollar – basically everything in the crypto complex has been plastered over the past three weeks. But the majority of large market cap coins have been similarly plastered when compared with Bitcoin.

But XLM is more or less holding its own, which is clear on the XLM/BTC chart.

Investors Beware: Another Large Bitcoin Crash Might Be Coming

The crypto prices have surged quite high in the last few months. Of course, their progress is nowhere near the one seen in 2017, but they appear to be getting there, one day at the time. However, things might not be as simple as that, and according to recent performance — it is more than possible that a major Bitcoin crash is incoming.

The fact is that cryptos saw a massive amount of growth in a very short period. Bitcoin itself more than doubled its price in only two months. Now, the rally is starting to crash in on itself, and the coin is already about $1,000 lower than last week. If such development does come to pass, a lot of people will experience quite large losses, although experienced investors might find some opportunities, and leverage in order to enhance their holdings’ long-term value.

For example, Bitcoin dominance is expected to crash very quickly, which will work in favor of quite a lot of altcoins. While this does not seem to be the best time to invest in BTC, altcoins are another story, and diversifying a portfolio now might end up being very profitable in days to come.

Bitcoin behavior mirrors the pre-bear market situation

The crash that analysts are predicting right now comes as a direct consequence of all the hype that has been building up in…

Bitcoin is soaring high in the cryptomarket once again, and experts are expecting a return of the bullish trend of 2017. The current Bitcoin price is $7,615 as of 23 May 6:56 AM UTC. This significant jump comes just six months after the Bitcoin price plummeted to a low of $3150 in December 2018. Since then, Bitcoin has experienced steady growth and gain in the market. However, in the last 30 days, the Bitcoin price peaked to $8,320.82, its highest price ever. This phenomenal jump occurred in a span of only 10 days breaking the Bitcoin record so far of significant gains made in short time frames. This positive growth has led to experts forecasting the Bitcoin price to hit the $20,000 mark by the end of this year.

Since entering the market almost 11 years ago, Bitcoin is still at the top of the global cryptocurrencies list. The current circulating supply of Bitcoin is at unbelievable 17,708,875 BTC. The market trend of the Bitcoin price has remained positive even when the currency did not maintain an uptrend. Cryptocurrency researchers believe that Bitcoin has the potential to grow up to a high of USD 50,000 within the next two years.

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…
