Shiba Inu Fanbase Awaits Eternity Download Event – Will It Boost SHIB Price?

The original release of the blockchain implementation of Shiba Eternity occurred in Australia on September 17. Shiba Inu followed the larger market sell-off that began on September 13 and rallied nearly 7% from September 17-18. During this time span, the rally did not significantly alter market sentiment. New information about the game’s release, though, may add some hype. According to a recent tweet by Shib Rumours, the release date of the game is set for October 1. However, the latest post on the official Shiba Inu Twitter account indicates that the worldwide launch of the game will take place on October 6. SHIB has a current trading range of $0.00001073 – 0.00001154. Could the meme coin see a resurgence after the game’s release?

Shiba Inu: Increasing Speed After the latest sell-off on September 18, an uptrend has been noted and has been very consistent up to the time of writing. Given that this occurred only a day after the Australia release, it’s likely that long-term token holders witnessed the price increase and sold off their holdings. During this period, the memecoin saw a pullback and plummeted 8.5% immediately. Currently, the recent price movements have created a head and shoulders pattern before to today’s breakout. During this breakout, the price increased by 2.9% Given the current state of Shiba Eternity, this price movement can be regarded as a sign of increased anticipation for the game’s October 6 release. ETH whales are also contributing to the hype train. According to WhaleStats, the top 1,000 Ethereum whales have more than $147.5 million. WhaleStats also regarded Shiba Inu as the token with the highest dollar value position. Related Reading: ApeCoin Performance Could Attract The Whales – How About The Bulls? Keeping A Close Eye On The Market Therefore, there are a few things that future Shiba Inu players and investors/traders should be aware of. One of these is that a price increase is frequently followed by a severe market correction, similar to what we experienced on September 18 following the rally on September 17. As of this writing, SHIB is trading at $$0.00001137, up 2.5 percent in the last seven days, data from Coingecko show, Saturday. As October 6 approaches, we will have a better sense of whether Shiba Inu will increase in value or decline further.

XRP Price Rallied By Double Digits, Will Buyers Defend This Level?

The XRP price has increased significantly in the past 24 hours. The coin registered over 10% growth in the past day. Over the last week, the coin brought in 10% appreciation as well. Overall, XRP bulls seemed to take control of the charts. The coin could slowly attempt to trade near its next resistance mark, and with growing demand, it could get past that price mark. The support zone for that price rested between $0.43 and $0.39, respectively. It is important for XRP to get back up to $0.51, which has been acting as a rigid price ceiling for the coin. Once XRP moves up beyond $0.51, the coin will strengthen its bullish move. The technical indicator of the coin has signalled an increased bullish momentum. The buyers have returned to the market, albeit with a decline. The decrease in selling strength will help XRP to move past the $0.51 level. The global cryptocurrency market cap today is $978 billion, with a 2.2% positive change in the last 24 hours. XRP Price Analysis: One Day Chart The altcoin was trading at $0.43 at the time of writing. XRP price had rallied sharply to $0.56 and then retraced on its chart. Over the past day, however, the coin started to move up on its chart. The immediate resistance for the coin stood at $0.51 and then at $0.56. On the other hand, the support line was at $0.41 and a fall from that level would cause the XRP price to dip to $0.34. That would make the bears stronger in the market. The amount of XRP that was traded in the last session showed signs of decline, which indicated that buying strength might have dipped on the chart. Technical Analysis The altcoin was still controlled by the bulls on the one chart. The coin had gone through a pullback, which is why buying strength also fell on its chart. The Relative Strength Index was above the half-line, and that indicated an increased number of buyers as compared to sellers. If demand falls, the sellers can take over at any moment. The XRP price was above the 20-SMA line as well as 50-SMA, which indicated that demand was still quite high for the coin. It means that buyers were in control of the price momentum in the market.

The Moving Average Convergence Divergence depicts the price momentum and overall price action of the coin. MACD was positive with green signal bars, and that meant buy signal for the coin. The green signals were receding, which could mean that there might be a price pullback over the next trading sessions. Bollinger Bands indicate price volatility and fluctuations. The bands widened, which is a signal that there could be heavy price volatility over the next trading sessions.

Solana (SOL) Holds Its Gains While Most Coins Bleed

Solana (SOL) has managed to keep most of its gains over the past 48 hours while most coins bled out. The token started yesterday, September 29th, at $33.25, going as high as $34.34 at midday. Solana (SOL) suffered a loss in value on September 28th, when it dropped from $32.85 to $31.74. However, it quickly recovered before the end of the trading day and has been steadily increasing since then. The Price of SOL currently sits at $33.72 at the time of writing. Related Reading: Trade Activity Shows Ethereum Whales Are Seeking Refuge In Stablecoins SOL Holding On For Dear Life The past few days have seen most coins in the top 100 drop in value by more than 10%. SOL is one of the few tokens that have held its ground during this time. The coin price was off to a rocky start, entering the new week at $32.1. At a point, it seemed like it would rally up to $40 when it reached $35.02 on Tuesday, the 27th. However, the run was short-lived as it fell to $31.77 the next day. Later, the token left investors smiling as it slowly galloped back up to $34.34 the next day, September 29th. So far, it has kept a decent amount of profit for itself and is currently sitting at $33.89. Gains Amidst Troubled Waters SOL’s performance is nothing short of impressive, considering how volatile the market has been for other tokens.  It seems like there are no signs of slowing down anytime soon, either, with the coin still holding strong at above $33. SOL’s price stays modestly above a crucial support level of $30, which serves as a good buying zone for traders. For SOL to trend upward, the price must break over $35, its weekly resistance. If the price of SOL breaks and remains over $35, it might significantly rise to the $45-$58 range. Historically, SOL pricing has found breaking out of this range tough. Based on its performance in the last three months, it’s likely that SOL will likely continue to climb higher. Some people are already predicting the token to go up to $41. An analyst on TradingView noted that a move in the US market could be a catalyst for SOL to reach the $35 mark. Social Engagement And NFTs Might Just Be What SOL Needs The past week has been an eventful one for Solana on social media. According to a recent tweet by PHOENIX, Solana was the best-performing project in terms of social activity. The token had a total of 35,100 mentions and 58.3 million engagements across social media platforms.  Related Reading: Uniswap Could Slide Below Support Zone – No Demand For UNI This Week? But that’s not all. Statistics from Delphi Digital show an increase in Solana’s share of NFT trading volume. According to the tweet, Solana’s NFT volume increased from 7% to 24% in the past six weeks. This gained traction in the NFT sector can help push SOL beyond its resistance and into new heights.

Bitcoin Slowly Trends Upwards Into $20,000, Will The Monthly Candle Turn Green?

Bitcoin has seen some profits over today’s trading session as September’s monthly candle is coming to an end. Market participants were expecting a tight battle between bullish and bearish forces, but the cryptocurrency has been moving sideways with slight upward pressure. Related Reading: Trade Activity Shows Ethereum Whales Are Seeking Refuge In Stablecoins At the time of writing, Bitcoin (BTC) trades at $19,700 with a 2% and 1% profit over the last 24 hours and 7 days. Other cryptocurrencies in the crypto top 10 by market cap are displaying similar price action, but BTC seems to be leading the low timeframe bullish momentum. People Buy Bitcoin To Hedge Against Their Currencies Downside Trend? Data from Material Indicators shows that investors with buying orders from $1,000 to $10,000 bought into Bitcoin’s recent price action while other investors sold their coins. In that sense, a rally into the monthly close seems unlikely. However, Material Indicators also show that ask (sell) liquidity has been decreasing as Bitcoin is rejected from the area of around $20,000. If the price can resume its bullish momentum and can gain more support from larger buyers, bears might be unable to defend $20,000. This might lead BTC to higher levels, and possibly for a reclaim of the levels around $26,000, according to a report from NewsBTC. The cryptocurrency must flip $20,100 into support, analyst from Material Indicators wrote the following about BTC odds as the market heads into the monthly close: There are short term signs of a potential pump, but the crossing of key moving averages suggests the broader trend will continue down. Resist the urge to overtrade or FOMO in. Additional data provided by research firm Messari picked a spike in buying pressure from investors in the Eurozone and the United Kingdom (UK). This pressure is related to a decline in the value of their currencies as the U.S. dollar rallied to a multi-decade high. The New Narrative, Will The Fed Pivot Leading Bitcoin To New Highs? This data from Messari has been put into question by several users. Regardless of its legitimacy, this data speaks about an increasing trend in the sector: more and more market participants are highlighting the impact of central banks in the financial sector and the global economy. According to a report from Charles Gasparino, a reporter for FOX Business, members of the U.S. Federal Reserve (Fed) are aware of the negative consequences of their monetary policy. They have brought a steep downside pressure for equities and risk-on assets, such as Bitcoin.

If the pressure inside the Fed becomes too high, the financial institution might pivot its measures, and provide some room for a relief rally across the board. Speaking on this possibility, and on why Bitcoin has been showing strength relative to legacy financial assets, analyst William Clemente said: In theory: People front-running expected CB (Central Banks) pivot by buying BTC -> Perceived BTC “safe haven” flows -> Reflexive response from other market participants? Not my base case but non-zero possibility that my mind is open to.
