BTC Technical Analysis


Bitcoin has started to show some basing action recently. Despite the sharp retracement from the run it had in July to the $8K mark, it has held another test of the $6k support area. It has been consolidating in the low 6000’s for the past several days, and has been slowly grinding up. This is by no means that the crypto bear market is over, but we’re seeing signs that a short term bottom may be in, with the $6K mark acting as strong support.

We have gotten several tests of the $6800 mark the past few days, and recently had a nice pinbar rejection of the lower levels in the range it has been holding up in. These are signs that we will likely see some more upside and had back to a test of the $7000’s if we get over the $6800 short term resistance level. When it breaks this level it will likely have a quick pop in a short period of time.



ETH and many other major altcoins are still showing major relative weakness to BTC. Despite Bitcoin rallying strongly off of the $6K support level, ETH is still bear flagging in the $250-$325 range. The recent oversold bounce into the low 300’s was heavily sold into, indicating that there is still a ton of selling pressure in the world’s second largest cryptocurrency. If we break below $250 we may see even more downside in the near term. The next major support levels are in the low 200’s from its runup last summer. Do not try to catch the falling knife on this one.

Coin Of The Week



ONT is a recent altcoin that was recently added to Binance earlier this summer. It has been seeing some incredible momentum the past couple weeks, showing some major strength relative to the other altcoins out there. It has been bull flagging nicely since its big pop on the 16th. It has been holding up in the higher part of its range, indicating that we will likely get another test of the $2.90’s level, the high from its runup earlier this month. Notice how much volume has come into this coin in the past couple weeks as well. This is my favorite altcoin to watch for the rest of the month.
