BTC-ETH Daily Chart
BTC-ETH Daily Chart

Two of the biggest cryptocurrencies by market cap, Bitcoin and Ethereum have perked up near the lows. Both have been trending down for the past month and looked as if they would test their recent lows created on June 22.

That was $28.8k for Bitcoin and $1700 for Ethereum.

While Wednesday’s price action has stopped the bleed, will altcoins jump on the potential rally?

When it comes to resistance levels, the first hurdle for Bitcoin to clear and hold would be the 36k area. If it does, by then it will have also cleared its 50-Day moving average at 34.5k and will show a breakout from the downward trend.


On the other hand, Ethereum has support at the $1700 level with resistance forming at $2270 to $2400. Like Bitcoin, by that time Ethereum reaches $2400 resistance, it will also have cleared its 50-DMA at $2213.

When it comes to altcoins (any currency that is not Bitcoin) Chainlink (LINK) and Cardano (ADA) have interesting technical chart setups.

LINK will need to stay over $15 proving it can hold over its low created on June 22.

Although it is in a bearish phase, consolidation over this price area could entice more buyers near this support level. However, when it comes to consolidation, Cardano (ADA) has spent most of the year within the $1–1.45 range.

Currently, Wednesday’s price action has it sitting right over the 200-DMA at $1.15. This is a key pivotal area for it to stay over as the next psychological level for it to break lower to is $1.00.

When it comes to trading altcoins, one should try to time their entries with the large-cap coins, like Bitcoin or Ethereum as their recent lows will need to hold and have a lot of impact on the rest of the crypto space.
