    We come to the end of the analysis week, and the Crypto market accelerates the reversal and consolidation process that started last week. The bullish green dominated yesterday at the end of the US session in a typical bearish break confirmation move. Once the price verified that it could not recover the lost support lines, the sales accelerated and quickly went to look for the lower support levels.

    The market is approaching a possible rotation point towards Ethereum. As we will see below, it is a scenario with risks, but that can be very beneficial in the medium term.

    The ETH/BTC pair is currently trading at the price level of 0.029 after yesterday's loss of support at 0.0302 and is moving further away from the structure of the parallel bullish trend lines that have steered the price since December.

    0.0290.0302

    As we will see from the MACD, the pair is entering a scenario of a possible bullish turn. This type of situation implies more risk as volatility tends to increase, but if managed with patience and determination, it tends to give excellent returns.

    Above the current price, the first resistance level is at 0.031 (price congestion resistance), then the second resistance level is at 0.0315 (price congestion resistance). The third resistance level for the ETH/BTC pair is at 0.032 (lower parallel bullish trend line).

    Below the current price, the first support level is at 0.0275 (price congestion support), then the second support level is at 0.0268 (price congestion support).

    The MACD on the four-hour chart shows a typical pattern of a pre-cross bullish scenario. It is a risky scenario as it usually brings with it an increase in volatility and the taking of positions generates stressful moments for the trader.

    The DMI on the four-hour chart shows the bears already completely below the ADX line while the bulls are at minimum levels conducive to a bullish rebound.

    Above the current price, the first resistance level is formed by the confluence of the EMA50 and the SAM100 at $5,233 and $5,333 respectively. The second resistance level for the BTC/USD pair is at $5,500 (price congestion resistance), then the third resistance level is at $6,300 (price congestion resistance).

    The MACD on the four-hour chart shows how the lines react to the downturn with a strong downtrend and large openings between the lines. The movement is so exaggerated that it can cause a rebound counter movement.

    The DMI on the four-hour chart shows how bears dominate the pair but fail to move above the ADX line, which is a sign of weakness to watch out for.

    ETH/USD is trading at $154 following the early morning Asian trading session. In the fall, ETH/USD loses the support of all moving averages and enters into a more negative scenario.

    Above the current price, the first resistance level is at $162 (price congestion resistance and SMA200). The second resistance level is at $168 (SMA200 and EMA50). Then the third resistance level for ETH/USD is at $180 (price congestion resistance).

    $162$168$180

    Below the current price, the first support level is $151 (price congestion support). The second support level is at $142.5 (price congestion support), so the third support level is at $131 (price congestion support).

    $151$142.5$131

     

    The MACD on the four-hour chart shows moving averages with a significant bearish slope and considerable openness between lines. It is a scenario in which bearish continuity is most likely.

    The DMI on the four-hour chart shows an extreme situation, with bears with absolute control and above the ADX. On the opposite side, the bulls are at extreme minimum levels. It is a scenario that will tend more to a return to averages than to continue in extremes.

    Above the current price, the first resistance level is at $0.293 (price congestion resistance). The second resistance level for the XRP/USD pair is $0.30 (price congestion resistance), then the third resistance level is $0.3175 (EMA50 and price congestion resistance).

    $0.293$0.30 $0.3175

    Below the current price, the first support level is $0.288 (price congestion support), then the second support level is $0.285 (price congestion support). The third level of support for the XRP/USD pair is $0.282 (price congestion support).

    The MACD on the four-hour chart shows a bullish cross profile in the process, very similar to the structure of the ETH/BTC pair. More experienced traders will find the timing interesting for bullish entries.

    The DMI on the four-hour chart shows bears dominating the situation but in a very advanced structure and entering a phase of change. Bulls are at minimum levels, and this may help a possible turn in the next few days.
