Avalanche (AVAX) Shows Optimism But Is This A Price Reversal?

Avalanche (AVAX) has displayed recovery on its chart. Over the last 24 hours, the altcoin brought home 4.8% gain. Although, there has been a considerable daily gain, AVAX is trading underneath its long-standing price floor. It is difficult for investors to look at just the daily gain as a good enough reason to buy the coin at the moment. Technical for the coin hasn’t suggested strong bullishness which might suggest that AVAX could be a good buy at the time of writing. Avalanche (AVAX) has lost 8% of its market value in the last week. This forced many investors to liquidate the asset and leave. Since, AVAX broke below its long term support area, this could act as an important red flag for the investors. The next solid area of support for AVAX was at $20. The coin traded around the current price level previously in the month of August, a year ago. Avalanche Price Analysis: One Day Chart Avalanche (AVAX) was exchanging hands at $31 at the time of writing. The altcoin has been laterally trading at that price mark for nearly a week now. It revisited this price mark last year, however, back then the coin was on an uptrend. Immediate resistance for the coin stood at $40 as established previously. A fall below the current price level could send AVAX near the $20 support mark. Failing to settle near the $20 mark could bring AVAX anywhere between the $12 and $9 support level. Technical Analysis The altcoin continues to depict weakness on its chart. The technical outlook seems bearish because buyers are nowhere to be seen in the market. As the coin revisited the August, last year’s price level, AVAX remained under the grasps of the sellers in the market. According to the Relative Strength Index, the indicator was bordering the oversold mark. Until and unless, RSI manages to move above the half-line, it is too early to call this price action a reversal. Going by the Directional Movement Index that reads the price direction, bears are in control. The -DI line was above the +DI mark signifying bearishness. The Average Directional Index line (red) was near the 50-mark, this reading meant that price action was strong with less signs of a reversal. Suggested Reading | Avalanche Crumbles More Than 16% As Crypto Landslide Continues On the one day chart, AVAX’s technical pointed towards a possible change in price direction at the time of writing. Moving Average Convergence Diverge aka MACD, displayed a green signal bar above the half-line. A green signal bar above the half-line might mean a buy signal, if continued buy signals are witnessed it may mean a change in price momentum. Parabolic SAR also depicted a dot beneath the price candles, this means a change in price direction. If more dots are seen beneath the candlesticks over the upcoming trading sessions then AVAX might stage a recovery on its chart.

Ripple Price Falls Below $0.43 As Bears Take Control Of The Market

Following the massive dump in the past week, Ripple price regains its stance on a long trend. Moreover, bulls must tower the bears in this current market momentum. Last week wasn’t a good trading week for Ripple buyers, as the XRP token recorded a massive 42% loss. As a result, the week closed below $0.4255. Notably, the entire week had the token’s price steadily following a huge bearish trend, declining to $0.4018 before climbing back to $0.4123 and terminating there for the week. Notably, most indicators have been engrossed in the oversold zone, implying the possibility of a temporary uptrend. However, the token’s price must create a higher low and higher high to validate this momentum reversal. This also means that the bulls must push XRP’s price up to $0.65 before it can create form a bullish trend. What Are The Odds? Due to the massive decline, one can only expect the XRP token to record a bullish momentum, or bullish mean reversal, temporarily.

Thus, a rejuvenated buying pressure would force the price to reach the 50-day Exponential Moving Average before testing the psychological $0.50 mark. On the other hand, a decline in the bearish momentum would cause the coin to continue in a steady decline or downtrend. Should XRP break below the current session’s low value, it’d test Friday’s low at $0.40. Technical Indicators Moving Average Convergence Divergence: The MACD trades underneath the midline with steadily growing bullish momentum. Relative Strength Index: The RSI hovers close to the average line, having no stated directional bias. A Brief On Ripple?

Bitcoin Selling Pressure Continues As Long-Term Holder SOPR Spikes Up

On-chain data shows the Bitcoin long-term holder SOPR has recently observed spikes, suggesting that this cohort is still continuing to sell. Bitcoin Long-Term Holder SOPR Spiked Up When Price Crossed $30k As pointed out by a CryptoQuant post, selling pressure in the market still looks to be high as long-term holders are also looking to sell. The “spent output profit ratio” is an indicator that tells us whether the overall market is selling Bitcoin at a profit or loss right now. The metric works by checking the on-chain history of each coin being sold to see what price it last moved at. It then divides the current price (that is, the selling price) with the last price. When the value of this ratio is greater than one, it means investors are, on an average, selling at a profit at the moment. On the other hand, values of the indicator less than one imply that the Bitcoin market as a whole is realizing loss currently. A cohort of BTC investors is the “long-term holder” (LTH) group, who hold their coins for at least 155 days before selling. Related Reading | Bitcoin Bearish Signal: Whales Ramp Up Dumping The “LTH SOPR” tells us about profit or loss realization from specifically this group. Here is a chart that shows the trend in this indicator (EMA 144) over the past month: It seems like the value of the metric has observed some spikes recently | Source: CryptoQuant As you can see in the above graph, the Bitcoin long-term holder SOPR (EMA 144) had a couple of spikes in the last few days. One took place on 13th May, while the other occurred on the 18th. During both these instances, the price had crossed $30k shortly before. Related Reading | Funding Rates Fall To Yearly Lows Following Bitcoin’s Fall Below $29,000 This means that LTHs have been feeling pressure in the current market to realize their profits as soon as the price reaches above $30k. Usually, Bitcoin long-term holders are the least likely cohort to sell. So, selling pressure from this group can prove to be bearish for the crypto’s price. BTC Price At the time of writing, Bitcoin’s price floats around $29.4k, up 3% in the last seven days. Over the past month, the crypto has lost 28% in value. The below chart shows the trend in the price of the coin over the last five days. Looks like the price of the crypto has seen some decline over the past two days | Source: BTCUSD on TradingView Over the past week, Bitcoin has mostly consolidated around the $30k mark, failing to gain any ground above the mark. As long as selling at the level continues, the crypto won’t be able to make any real recovery. Featured image from Unsplash.com, charts from TradingView.com, CryptoQuant.com

Bitcoin Stable Near $30,000 But The Bearish Leg Is Far From Over

Bitcoin has been getting stable at its crucial support level of $30,000. For over a week now, Bitcoin has been trading near its immediate support level. Over the last week, the coin lost close to 6% of its value and in the last 24 hours, BTC fell by 3%. The past week has been extremely choppy for Bitcoin and also for the altcoin due to continued market weakness. The coin had plunged to a low of $25,000, BTC had last traded about that price level in December 2020. Bitcoin has recovered by $5000, however, a chance of a further downslide cannot be ruled out.  The technical of the coin pointed towards continued selling pressure in the market. Bitcoin Price Analysis: One Day Chart Bitcoin was priced at $29,100 at the time of writing after the coin was rejected from the $31,000 price level. Immediate resistance for the coin stood at $25,000. A fall beneath the same will send the coin straight to $19,000. On the flip side, if the bulls send a temporary relief then the coin will target moving above the $30,000 price level and trade close to the $31,000 resistance mark. The volume of Bitcoin traded was seen in the red which indicated bearishness on the one day chart. Technical Analysis Bitcoin might have been able to show signs of stability on the chart but further signs show that the coin can soon plummet again. King coin was trading underneath the 20-SMA line which meant that sellers were dominating the price momentum in the market. Support from the buyers can push the coin above the immediate resistance of $30,000. The support from buyers seems like an unlikely situation considering how the coin has formed a bearish flag (yellow). A bearish flag indicates further push from the bears and this could cause the coin to trade below the $20,000 support mark. The coin hadn’t touched the $20,000 price level in over a year now. The Relative Strength Index was below the half-line which indicated that sellers are still in charge as shown by the SMA lines. Related Reading | Bitcoin Bearish Signal: Whales Ramp Up Dumping Bitcoin’s bearish flag reflected how the coin continued to fall on the chart after the pattern was formed. The bulls have tired out from the constant battle with sellers. In accordance with the same reading, Awesome Oscillator flashed bearishness. The indicator dictates the price momentum of the market and red histograms underneath the half-line meant a sell signal for the coin. If sellers continue to act on it, $20,000 can soon be on the charts. Chaikin Money Flow is responsible for depicting capital inflows and outflows. The indicator was below the half line because capital outflows were still dominant at press time. Related Reading | TA: Bitcoin Eyes Fresh Increase But This Level Is The Key

ATOM Might Trade Below Its Immediate Support Level Despite A Recent Rally

ATOM had displayed optimistic price action recently after the coin rallied close to 14% a little over 48 hours ago. The coin had managed to undo the loss of 21% that it incurred in the past week with its recent rally. Bearish sentiments are still present across the whole industry and altcoins have also walked along the same price sentiment. Ever since ATOM revisited its all time high in the month of January this year, the coin has struggled to release itself from the grasp of the bears. At the time of writing, Cosmos (ATOM) was the 28th biggest crypto by market capitalisation as seen on CoinGecko. Bitcoin again slid below the $30,000 mark while Ethereum struggled to trade above the $2000 price level. The global cryptocurrency market cap today was at $1.32 Trillion after a fall of 4.6% in the last 24 hours. ATOM Price Analysis: One Day Chart Cosmos (ATOM) was trading for $10.57 at the time of writing. Gradual push from the bears have caused the digital asset to trade below its resistance lines. At press time, the coin was trading close to its immediate support level because the market received a fall in buying strength. Over the last 24 hours, the altcoin registered a sharp fall by 9% forcing the coin trade near the local support. Immediate resistance for ATOM stood at $13.73 and to trade above the same ATOM would need support of the buyers. Volume of the coin traded depicted bearishness which indicates selling momentum rising in the market. Technical Analysis Cosmos (ATOM) invalidated its 8-month long resistance line and that caused sellers to lose confidence on the asset. The coin was trading below the 20-SMA line which meant that sellers were in control of the price momentum. If the coin continues to remain below the 20-SMA line then a bullish revival remains tough for the altcoin. If buyers find a way back into the market then the coin can attempt to trade near the $13 price mark. A rejection from the aforementioned price level will push the coin beneath the $9.42 support level. The coin traded near the $9.40 level last year in the month of July. The Relative Strength Index displayed an uptick because the indicator was seen above the oversold region. Despite recovery, ATOM continues to remain under heavy selling pressure. Related Reading | How Cosmos Could Outgrow Ethereum, Making The Case Cosmos (ATOM) had staged a brief recovery and following that indicators reflected some bullishness. It is too early to say if the altcoin will continue moving in the same direction. Awesome Oscillator depicts the price momentum in the market. The indicator displayed green histograms underneath the zero-line, this reading signifies a sell signal. If sellers act on the sell signal, price could dip further causing the bears to strengthen. Chaikin Money Flow was under the half-line, although the indicator noted an increase in capital inflows over outflows. Despite increase in capital inflows, ATOM’s capital outflows precede its inflows. Related Reading | TA: Bitcoin Eyes Fresh Increase But This Level Is The Key

Bitcoin Bearish Signal: Whales Ramp Up Dumping

On-chain data shows the Bitcoin exchange whale ratio has started to sharply rise, a sign that these humongous holders may be beginning to dump. Whales Are Behind Almost 90% Of Bitcoin Exchange Inflows Right Now As pointed out by an analyst in a CryptoQuant post, whales may be ramping up dumping, a sign that could be bearish for the price of BTC. The “exchange whale ratio” is an indicator that measures the ratio between the sum of the top ten Bitcoin transactions to exchanges and the total exchange inflows. Since the 10 biggest transactions to exchanges usually belong to the whales, this metric can tell us about the relative size of whale inflows to the rest of the market. When the value of this metric is high (that is, above 85%), it means whales currently make up a very large part of the overall exchange inflows. Especially high values can suggest that whales are mass dumping at the moment, something that could prove to be bearish for the price of Bitcoin. On the other hand, the indicator having values lesser than 85% can imply whale selling in the market is at a healthy level right now. During bull runs, the metric usually remains in this range.
