Bitcoin, Technical Analysis: Bitcoin Consolidates after Yesterday’s Rally

Hump-day provided a hurdle for cryptocurrency prices, which mainly consolidated, after a strong start to February. Today’s session saw Bitcoin and Ethereum trading lower.

Bitcoin

BTC/USD followed up yesterday’s rally with a weak showing on Wednesday, falling by as much as 1. 13% as of writing.

This decline saw prices hit an intraday low of $38,271. 44, following a high of $39,115. 13 during Tuesday’s market session, which raised hopes for those targeting $40,000.

Today’s move saw BTC‘s 14-day RSI once again drop below the resistance level of 40, which it had briefly broken yesterday, hitting its highest price strength since early January in the process.

Recent consolidations in price have meant that the 10-day (red), and 15-day (blue) moving averages have moved closer in proximity, which isn’t a bad thing for bulls.

BTC/USD – Daily Chart

Looking at the chart, the 10-day is now upward facing, which increases the chances of a potential crossover, and this could be the sign that longer term bulls have been waiting for.

Despite this, we may see markets continue to consolidate prior to this cross.

Ethereum

Ethereum was one of yesterday’s big gainers, breaking out of its resistance level in the process, however those gains have somewhat slowed on Wednesday.

Following yesterday’s breakout, ETH/USD appears to have found a new resistance level of $2,800, which was the level where today’s decline began.

Similar to BTC, this move coincided with the RSI level of 44 acting as a hard ceiling to further gains in strength, leading to prices falling to an intraday low of $2,745.26.

ETH/USD – Daily Chart

As of writing, ETH/USD is trading marginally lower, falling by 0. 41% on the day, with the possibility for a decline back to support of $2,600 also a possibility.

What would need to happen for the recent strength in ETH to continue this week? Please leave your comments below.
