Technical analysis

Bitcoin

The largest cryptocurrency by market capitalization spent the weekend crashing down to $10,555 and then recovering from the drop. After the price going up all the way up to $12,000, Bitcoin suddenly dropped to $10,555, which liquidated $1 billion of positions. However, the price quickly recovered and went over $11,000. It is still unsure if the price will end up being above this support level, but it is more likely that BTC will remain above, rather than fall below it.

BTC traders should look for a trade opportunity when BTC bounces from $11,000 or falls below it.

Ethereum

Ethereum acted pretty much the same as Bitcoin over the weekend, with its price reaching a major high of $415, and then plummeting down to $320 before recovering to $380 levels. While the current price is considerably lower than the $415 high, but Ethereum made insane gains over the course of the week and month.

Ethereum traders should look for a trade opportunity after the cryptocurrency decides its price direction.
