  • $39.6k – When support turns to resistance.
  • Ethereum (ETH) picking up a bid.
Bitcoin Vs. Ethereum: 10 Experts on Which They'd Rather Hold and Why

Risk-on markets are picking up a small bid this morning as traders digest the recent imposition of sanctions on Russia and what follows next. The sanctions imposed by the EU, US, and the UK are seen as being on the lenient side, keeping the lines of communication with Russia open. While nothing that has happened suggests that talks will continue, markets are currently pricing in a small possibility. Risk markets have been hit hard over the past few weeks and today’s move may be more consolidation than a longer-lasting risk-on move.

Bitcoin is pushing back towards the $39.6k level, a spot that was seen as important support until the recent break lower. This level will now act as resistance to the current move higher and will need to be broken conclusively to allow Bitcoin to move higher. Above here $42k comes into focus. The daily chart shows BTC in oversold territory and this may help to underpin the move higher in the short term.

Ethereum is trading 5% higher of the session so far on the general risk-on uplift. The daily chart shows the series of lower highs from the November 10 high remains in place although recent price action has broken the string of lower lows. To add weight to a move higher, Ethereum needs to break, and consolidate, above $3,289 to invalidate the series of lower highs. The CCI indicator is in oversold territory while the ATR is at a multi-month low.

The Ethereum/Bitcoin spread is currently above the bearish trend line but has been following the trend lower. The spread has made a short-term base either side on 0.0680 and if this holds, and the pair continues to trade above the bearish trendline, then last week’s double high at 0.0720 is likely to be re-tested.

    • Bitcoin's rally is fueling gains across the market. Here are 3 altcoins with breakout potential:   Fetch.ai (FET): Bullish triangle pattern hints at a surge to $3.48 or even $5 by month's end. Floki (FLOKI): Recent breakout suggests a climb to $0.00045, capitalizing on meme coin momentum. **** (****): Inverted head & shoulders pattern forming, potentially driving price to $0.000071.   Could these be the next big crypto moonshots, or are they headed for a fall? Read the full article here for a more detailed analysis of each altcoin, including charts and technical indicators: https://coinpedia.org/price-analysis/memecoins-for-3x-profits-by-the-end-of-may/
    • Bitcoin (BTC) is breaking out, surging nearly 10% in a week and reclaiming the $67,000 level. This bullish trend has ignited questions about whether a new all-time high, or even the psychological barrier of $100,000, is within reach. Key Points:   Post-Halving Rally Echo: The current surge resembles past post-halving rallies, where Bitcoin's price historically jumps after its block reward gets reduced. This scarcity could be driving the current upswing.   Technical Indicators Support Bullish Outlook: Daily charts hint at a potential breakout from a resistance trendline, signifying the end of a corrective phase. Additionally, bullish signals emerge from technical indicators like VI lines and ADX. Fibonacci Levels Suggest Six-Figure Target: Based on Fibonacci levels, a significant price increase is on the table. If the momentum holds, a moonshot to $100,000 this year seems achievable. However, some analysts predict a more conservative target of $77,842 by Q2 2024.   AI Predicts Bullish Q2, But How Bullish?:  The analysis incorporates predictions from ChatGPT. While many expected a bullish forecast, ChatGPT surprised with a potential rally to a staggering $87,613 by the end of June! Is Bitcoin on the cusp of a historic bull run, or is this just a temporary spike?   Read the full article here for a deeper dive into the technical analysis, expert opinions, and a closer look at the AI's prediction:  https://coinpedia.org/price-analysis/chatgpt-predicts-how-high-can-bitcoin-price-rally-in-q2-2024/    
    • Pepe, the meme coin, has dropped 12% after reaching record highs earlier this week. This has investors wondering if it's a good time to buy. Why Did Pepe Surge? The Pepe price jump was linked to the return of an online personality known as "Roaring Kitty," who was a key figure in the meme stock craze of 2021. This triggered excitement around Pepe, similar to what happened with meme stocks back then. Is Now the Time to Buy Pepe? Experts say it might be a bit early. While the price has dropped, it's still significantly higher than usual. Instead of buying now, investors might want to wait for a retest of a specific price point (around $0.00000920) which could offer better buying opportunities. Why Are Some Investors Still Bullish on Pepe? Despite the recent drop, many believe Pepe has room to grow. Here's why: Popularity: Pepe is gaining popularity, which could drive the price up. Market Cap: Compared to other meme coins like Dogecoin and Shiba Inu, Pepe's market cap is still relatively low. This means there's potential for significant growth.
