  • After (Bitcoin) hit record highs at the latter part of March, cryptocurrency markets have been unstable, seeking a clear direction while forming lower highs and higher lows.

    Despite the prevailing negative sentiment, altcoins like Ethereum, Solana, and Dogecoin continue to show solid trading volumes.

    1. Ethereum

    Ethereum has been oscillating between roughly $3,300 and $3,500 for the last 3 weeks. According to the recent uptrend, Ethereum is at risk of extending the correction if it closes this week below $3,500.

    ETH/USD Price Chart

    Looking at the long-term outlook, ETH started to retest the Fib 0.618 value after failing to break the resistance of about $ 3,975, which corresponds to a critical resistance of Fib 0.786 according to the bear market decline.

    The price action since March 11 has also shown that these two values have yielded meaningful results.

    So much so that in the last pullback, the $3,315 level has been working as support since the week of March 18. Short-term downside sags have so far been covered by the 8-week EMA, which is currently at $3.265.

    In the coming days, ETH may once again test the resistance area at $3,975 - $4,150 as it finds support in the $3,265 - $3,315 range. Breaking the support zone with weekly closures may cause ETH to continue up to $ 2,800.

    The $2,800 area stands as an extremely solid support line in terms of the 21-week EMA, Fib 0.5, and the upper line of the long-term ascending channel.

    This means that in case of a possible sag below the $ 3,000 zone, we can see that reaction purchases may accelerate in the $ 2,800 zone.

    2. Solana

    SOL, which continues its ascending channel movement, showed signs of slowing down in March but still maintained the uptrend.

    SOL/USD Price Chart

    SOL token continues to trade in the critical price zone based on the historical peak and bottom levels. In the current situation, we can see that an average of $205 (Fib 0.786) has been working as resistance since March.

    The support point in the lower area, which has not yet been tested as demand remains strong, is at about $163.

    If the next move is a weekly close above $205, we could see SOL test its peak near $260. The higher the volume reaches this point, the higher the probability that the peak will occur in a higher region.

    If we look at possible target prices using Fibonacci levels; Above $ 258, the range of $ 325 - 410 draws attention.

    In the lower region, if another wave of decline comes and SOL sees a weekly close below $ 163, $ 134 will be followed as the first support. In the possible breakout, we can see a sharp decline towards the $ 115 - 105 - 100 levels.

    3. Dogecoin

    DOGE encountered resistance at the $0.22 level last week and this week has been seller-dominated alongside the general market trend.

    DOGE/USD Price Chart

    In the last case, we could see a rebound from the $0.17 region. This area coincides with the trend line of late February origin, where DOGE's last uptrend began.

    If DOGE, which is slightly positive today, can quickly cross the $0.18 zone once again, it could form its next local peak in the $0.24 region. This corresponds to a 30% rise if the pattern works.

    On the other hand, a daily close below the $0.1688 level could invalidate the bullish setup.

    Therefore, putting a stop below this area in possible buying positions offers an average risk premium of 8% from the current level.

    The loss of the $0.1688 support could put DOGE at risk of falling to the $0.123 - $0.1328 range, taking into account the channel breakout.

    To summarize; to confirm the start of the upmove in DOGE, $0.18 should be confirmed by the daily closing candle.

    Then, we will see that the Stochastic RSI may also turn up on a daily basis and produce a solid signal for the upside. In the lower region, we mentioned that $ 0.1688 remains current as critical support.
