The crypto market has finally managed to bounce back in the last days as expected. The major cryptocurrencies have registered important gains in the short term, but we still need a confirmation that we’ll have a larger upside movement. The current rebound could be only temporary and the major cryptocurrencies could come back down to test and retest some very important support levels before will have started a major upwards movement.
Will Bitcoin Rise Again
The rate dropped in the early morning and erased some of the yesterday’s gains. Bitcoin has managed to jump in the buyer’s territory in the short term but is too early to talk about a larger rebound at this moment. It has managed to pass above the 8000 psychological level and approaches a very strong dynamic resistance.
Bitcoin increased sharply on April 12 signaling that the corrective phase is completed. Price was almost to reach the second warning line (WL2) of the major descending pitchfork where it could find resistance again.
Maybe the rate will come back to test and retest the lower median line (lml) of the ascending pitchfork before will breakout above the WL2. The perspective will be bullish on the Daily chart as long as the price stays inside of the ascending pitchfork’s body and above the outside sliding parallel line (sl).
Bitcoin has lost the bearish momentum, so another leg higher was expected. Personally, I still believe that we may have a significant bullish movement in the second part of the year. It could become strongly bullish after will climb and will stabilize again above the 10000 psychological level and above the downside 50% Fibonacci line.
Ethereum rebound in play
The crypto decreased a little as well today, but the bias remains bullish on the short term. Ether jumped above the $500 again and should reach crucial resistance levels very soon.
Price jumped above the 50% Fibonacci line (descending dotted line) of the descending pitchfork as expected. The next upside targets will be at the 565 level and at the upper median line (UML) of the descending pitchfork. Resistance could be found at the downside 50% Fibonacci line of the ascending pitchfork.
Ethereum could decrease to retest the broken 50% Fibonacci line and also the lower median line (lml) before will make a valid breakout above the UML of the descending pitchfork. Personally, I believe that only a valid breakout above the downside 50% Fibonacci line of the ascending pitchfork will really confirm a broader rebound.
Litcoin still under pressure
Litcoin retested the second warning line (wl2) of the former ascending pitchfork and now is trading in the red again. Price moves sideways between the 106.52 and the 136.61 level. Only a breakout from this range and above the 50% Fibonacci line (descending dotted line) will confirm an increase towards the upper median line (UML) of the major descending pitchfork.
The failure to reach and retest the 106.52 lowest low has signaled an oversold and a potential bullish momentum. However, the rate could slip lower to test and retest 106.52 level, the median line (ML) and the third warning line (wl3) before will try to climb towards fresh new highs.
Bitcoin, Ethereum, and Litcoin increased in the short term and signaled that the major corrective phase could be completed. It is premature to talk about larger upside movements at this moment. We need confirmations on the major cryptocurrencies before we can go long on the medium to the long term.
