Bitcoin (BTC/USD) & Ethereum (ETH/USD) Technical Outlook

Recommended Posts

BTC/USD, ETH/USD Technical Outlook:

  • BTC/USD broke out of channel/bear-flag, but bounce has that in question
  • Trend-line off the record high is currently being challenged
  • ETH/USD is trading around the important 1700 level

Bitcoin (BTC/USD) & Ethereum (ETH/USD) Technical Outlook

Late last month BTC/USD broke down out of a channel/bear-flag, and on that it appeared poise to make a new cycle low. However, it found support around 18600, which now has price just back inside the channel and challenging an important threshold.

The trend-line running down off the record high is currently getting tested and could become a meaningful source of resistance if BTC fails to climb above. There are two connecting points (min to make a trend-line, obviously), and so this would be the first validation of the level if we see it act as resistance.

A turn down from the trend-line would be treated as a sign that the ongoing bear market is ready to exert more downward pressure. The first level of support in this scenario is the recent low at 18540, followed by the cycle low at 17592.

Should we see BTC continue to rally then the next level of resistance clocks in around the August high of 25212 and the May low at 25401. If price reaches that point it will be a pivotal test as a higher high could be the first sign of a meaningful trend change, whereas a failure to trade to a new swing-high keeps the downward track well in place.

ETH/USD chart isn’t as clear as BTC/USD. It is currently trading around the important 1700 level that extends back to 2021. There is a big trend-line off the high a bit higher, and may be in confluence with the 200-day MA at 2079. The first level of support to watch is around 1424, then 1356, 1000, then the cycle low at 880.

    • Friday’s fiscal plan unveiled by the UK government has scared off investors and as a result the pound is down heavily across the board. IGTV’s Jeremy Naylor explains that while sterling is off today’s lows, it has suffered breaks of support taking the pound down to levels not seen in decades against a basket of currencies.          
    • GBP/USD in 37-year lows, EUR/GBP 2-year highs and EUR/USD fresh 20-year lows GBP/USD slid to its 1985 low and EUR/GBP rallied to a 2-year high following the UK’s fiscal stimulus mini budget while EUR/USD slid to fresh 20-year lows amid Italian far right election outcome.    Axel Rudolph | Market Analyst, London | Publication date: Monday 26 September 2022  EUR/USD drops to new 20-year lows as US dollar scales fresh 2-decade high This year’s slide in EUR/USD has taken it to levels last seen in June 2002 amid the Federal Reserve's (Fed) aggressive monetary tightening policy with market participants expecting another 125-basis point (bp) rate hike over the next couple of meetings, following three consecutive monthly 75bp rate rises which drove the US dollar to two-decade highs. With Italy’s first far right party since Benito Mussolini’s National Fascist Party in the 1920’s on course to win Sunday’s election, the euro is further under pressure. EUR/USD slid by around 4% since last week to fresh 20-year lows, slightly below key support seen between the June 2000 and January 2001 highs and the September 2002 low at $0.9698 to $0.9593 by dropping close to the $0.955 mark. Below it beckons the September 2001 high at $0.9331. Minor resistance can be spotted at the June 2000 high at $0.9698 above which lurks more substantial resistance around the 6 September trough at $0.9865. See an FX opportunity?
