Bitcoin chart analysis
Bitcoin tested the $ 30,000 support zone once again this morning. Since then, we have seen a new bullish impulse that has raised the price to $ 32,000. We are now again in the consolidation phase, and we are following the signs about the potential determination of the short-term trend. For the bullish option, we need a concrete break above $ 32,670. If Bitcoin succeeds, our next target is a zone of around 35,000 dollars, then 36,000 dollars. For the bearish option, we need a new pullback and a new test of the May support zone at $ 30,000. If the bearish pressure intensifies, we will probably see a further price retreat towards $ 29,000, then $ 28,000. The price is in the daily range of 30,000-32,000 dollars.
Ethereum chart analysis
Ethereum tested the support zone again at $ 2,280 this morning. After that, we start a new bullish impulse and the price breaks above the $ 2,400 level. We also managed to break through the falling channel, and now we need a further break above $ 2,500. Such a move would increase optimism in the continuation of the price recovery. Our next resistance targets are $ 2550-2570, then $ 2670-2700. We need a new negative consolidation and return to the falling channel for the bearish option. We are asking for support again at the $ 2,280 level, then the $ 2,200 price tag. If they don’t support us, we can expect a new lower low at $ 2,100, and maybe the $ 2,000 price.
