Crypto brief Dec.31

Bitcoin News

According to trader Velvet, Bitcoin needs to maintain the 100-week moving average, currently at around $ 7,000. If this level is lost on a macro basis and drops to $ 5,000 levels, it will confirm that the bulls have lost momentum, confirming a C Elliot wave will push the asset back to $ 1,000.

Bitcoin is trading at $ 7,260, marking a slight retreat from the daily high above the $ 7,500 that was established yesterday.

Bitcoin buyers have tried many times over the past several days and weeks to create bullish momentum in the mid- and upper-$ 7000.

In the short term, analysts found yesterday’s quick rally to simply mark lower high, and that crypto will not be able to generate any sustained momentum until it breaks above $ 7,800.

Analyst Josh Rager talked about this in a recent tweet, noting that this current price action could simply mark a period of accumulation.

While $ 7,800 may be a major level that speculators need to push Bitcoin higher in the near term, it’s important to note that the cryptocurrency is still stuck in a descending channel, which will keep BTC in a strong downtrend until the bulls push it above the upper channel boundary.

TraderXO said that the bottom likely doesn’t exist until this upper boundary is broken firmly above.

Crypto analyst Krillin stated that the price of BCH has begun to rise and a breakout of 0.03 sts will end the downtrend. He believes that a move above the 50 and 100-day moving average (MA) acts as a catalyst.
