Bitcoin Price Outlook: BTC, ETH Trade Flat After Bouncing Off Support

Recommended Posts


  • Bitcoin prices (BTC/USD) stabilize after falling below the 20-day MA (moving average)
  • Ethereum (ETH/USD) finds temporary support above $1,550 as bulls’ eye $1,600.
  • Silvergate becomes the latest cryptocurrency firm to land in troubled waters. The digital-asset based bank falls victim to FTX contagion after announcing solvency concerns.

Bitcoin Doesn't Appear to be Ripe for a Bullish Break Just Yet


Bitcoin and Ethereum prices have stabilized after Friday’s plunge that occurred on rising fears over crypto-based bank, Silvergate. After announcing a 40% reduction in its workforce, the firm announced a “risk-based” decision to discontinue its Exchange Network.

As Coinbase, Galaxy Digital and Bitstamp reacted to the viability concerns by suspending payments and withdrawals through the Silvergate payment network, major crypto's plunged before finding support at key technical levels.

The combination of negative sentiment and rising rate expectations weighed on digital assets, pushing BTC below $20-day MA (moving average) now holding as resistance around $23,600. With prices extending declines into the weekend, a rebound off the $22,000 psychological level helped limit losses.

As the largest digital asset (in terms of market capitalization) returned to a narrow range of support and resistance, Ethereum dropped below $1,600 before finding support at $1,550.


While today’s price action has remained subdued, the recent decline has driven the CCI (commodity channel index) into oversold territory. With Bitcoin prices currently trading sideways around the $22,500 mark, a break of $22,000 could make BTC/USD vulnerable to a sharper pullback.

Below this level is the February low which could open the door for bearish continuation toward $20.000.


As Ethereum rises above another big spot of support at $1,550, the next barrier of resistance has formed at $1,600 which could pave the way for a move toward the 50-day MA (moving average) at $1,610.

    • Charting the Markets: 31 March The FTSE 100, DAX 40 and Nasdaq 100 surge higher on a positive outlook as EUR/USD, GBP/USD pause their ascents while USD/JPY continues to rise as the greenback appreciates. WTI remains capped by resistance, gold forms a technical triangle as Robusta coffee trades near six-month highs.   Axel Rudolph FSTA | Senior Financial Analyst, London | Publication date: Friday 31 March 2023                 This is here for you to catch up but if you have any ideas on markets or events you want us to relay to the TV team we’re more than happy to.
    • Content streaming business Netflix has announced that it will restructure its film unit to make fewer movies each year. Part of the process will also see it centralise decision-making.  Jeremy Naylor | Analyst, London | Publication date: Friday 31 March 2023  It will combine units that produce small and midsize pictures, a change the company says will result in a handful of layoffs. Netflix is slightly higher all-sessions on the IG platform on this Friday morning, holding on to recent gains that we've seen for the stock. It's restructuring its film group to make fewer movies each year and try to centralise its decision making. Now this is a cost cutting exercise, so it's no real surprise that we've seen the markets wanting to hold on to the gains that we've seen at Netflix. Bloomberg is reporting that Netflix will combine its units that produce small and mid-size pictures, a change it says will result in some layoffs. Share price chart Let's take a look at the share price chart and I think you can see that the recent gains we've had way down here, the lows that we saw back on the 13th of March at $285. We're currently trading at 33975. As I said, just opened all-sessions on the IG platform with a small rise on the day. Lisa Nishimura, who led Netflix into stand up comedy and original documentaries, will depart after more than 15 years at the company. And Ian Bricke, a vice president of the film group, is also leaving after more than a decade. Bricke helped make the Kissing Booth, the movie franchises that Netflix has produced. So you can see at the moment we're up by a margin of almost half of 1%. But I think the bottom line is, it's holding onto the gains. This is essentially a cost-cutting exercise and a reduction of risk. But what it means for the long-term remains to be seen. It's all about Netflix and the competitors and the competitors are now getting into sports which Netflix doesn't yet do.
