The cryptocurrency market has started Q4 in a robust fashion with the market capitalization set to break back above $2 trillion. The recent market sell-off into the $1.75 - $1.8 trillion zone has now turned higher with market capitalization now eyeing recent lower highs at $2.08 trillion and $2.24 trillion. A crack and close above $2.08 trillion will break the recent series of lower highs and add to the current positive sentiment in the market.

The macro outlook for the cryptocurrency is beginning to look more positive with both the Federal Reserve (FED) and the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) taking a more constructive stance towards parts of the cryptocurrency market. This week SEC chair Gary Gensler said that a Bitcoin ETF, based on CME futures, would have ‘significant consumer protection’ and that he was looking forward to SEC staff reviews of the current ETF filings.

Bitcoin (BTC/USD) Rallies on Positive ETF Commentary from SEC Chair Gensler

At a meeting of the US House financial Services Committee, Fed chair Jerome Powell was asked if he intended to ban or limit the use of cryptocurrencies, to which he replied that he had no intention of banning them. Chair Powell did say that it would be appropriate if stablecoins were regulated, comparing them to money market funds and bank deposits.

The recent FED and SEC commentary has turned market sentiment positive, despite the ongoing backdrop of an increased China crackdown on all things crypto and with potential SEC market regulation in the wings. It seems that any bad news is being used as an opportunity to enter the market with downturns reversing quickly. Market sentiment can be fickle and turn quickly, but as we stand price action suggests higher the market will move higher as Q4 starts in a positive fashion.

Bitcoin continues to build on Thursday’s gains and has opened above a short-term downtrend line off the September 18 swing high at $48.8k. For a longer-term move higher, Bitcoin will need to take out all three simple moving averages and this mid-September high. This would open the way to the 61.8% Fibonacci retracement level at $50.5k and the September 7 high at $52.9k.

Ethereum (ETH/USD) is also moving higher and is printing a near two-week high around $3,185. To confirm a turnaround, ETH will need to break and open above the September 16 lower high at $3,675. The CCI indicator has moved out of the oversold territory and still has a lot of room left before ETH becomes overbought.

    • 06 December 2022 Spot Gold The price of gold did extend its move higher reaching our 1805 resistance target before finding resistance and once again starting to retrace. The moving averages suggest keeping a long bias to trades on the commodity. We are waiting for the current pullback to end with a bullish candle stick pattern before looking to find long entry once again. This is provided that the pullback does not extend past (close below) the 1735 support level. In this scenario, 1805 provides the initial upside resistance target, a break of which would further target the 1875 level.   Brent Crude Oil The price of brent crude oil could not break resistance at 8770 and has instead retraced back to support between levels 8220 and 8080. It appears time now for the commodity price to either break or bounce off the 8080-support level. A close below this level would consider a downside breakout and target a move to 7630. A bullish candle stick reversal (before a downside break occurs) would instead target a move back to 8770, while a close below the reversal low could be used as a stop loss indication in this scenario.         Our weekly technical report is compiled by in-house senior market analyst, Shaun Murison.
    • There was some exceptional volatility last week and the hints of tentative trend developments – most notably a breakdown of the Dollar and attempted rally for US indices. Yet, those moves have abated to start the new week with data and technical levels playing a bigger role in market conviction.        
    • The British Retain Consortium has released its retail sales monitor for November showing an improvement over October. However the chief economist at the BRC has warned that the sales were as a result of the Black Friday events and so provide slim margins for business owners.
