Analysis

BTC/USD

BTC/USD

From April 16. Bitcoin’s price has increased by 6,79% coming from 7916$ to 8452$ where is now sitting. The price went above the 50-day EMA as you can see from this daily chart, which is a good sign. However its 100-day exponential moving average is just slightly above it at around 9000$ level and then around 9300$ there is a 0.786 Fibonacci level, which means that the price is likely going to be repealed around those levels.

Overall, daily chart signals a buy.

Conclusion

After the bull run cryptocurrency market experienced, it is looking like the prices are getting really close to the first strong resistance, and that the pull back is on its way.

market cap evaluation

The market cap evaluation has exceeded the level on which it was on March 21 by approximately 20 billion dollars, from which we can conclude that the breakout from the descending wedge is real, making higher highs. However, we have to wait for a confirmation on the charts of the leading cryptocurrencies. Till then we have to conclude that we are still in a downtrend, but it definitely looks like the uptrend is in its beginning.
