- Bitcoin is eyeing a fresh move towards the $23,000 level.
- Ether (ETH) is consolidating above the $1,500 support level.
- MATIC surged over 50% heading towards $1.30.
Bitcoin has managed to remain above a support trendline for the past few days leading to a rally past the $22,000 resistance level, all the way to $22,750.
BTC is now consolidating above the 21-day simple moving average (H1) indicating bullish price action in the short term.
So far, the bears have defended the $22,750 zone, but the general sentiment in the market seems to be shifting towards a more positive outlook.
This recent price action follows a brief dip back to the support line which was quickly bought up by the bulls.
If the price of bitcoin stays above $21,550, it could see further rallies all the way up past $23,000 and higher . The first major resistance is near the $25,750 level, above which the price could start targeting the $30,000 psychological zone.
ETH has confidently pushed past the resistance at $1,440 and is now consolidating above the $1,500 level. The 21-day simple moving average (H1) has so far provided support indicating further rallies may be coming.
This recent price action follows a brief breakout above $1,600 which was quickly pushed back down by the bears. ETH may range at this level for a few days before it can attempt to move higher again.
If there are wider corrections in the market, ETH has support near $1,400 and $1,230.
This is where Ethereum has previously found support and the $1,400 is particularly important since it marked the top for ETH in the 2017-18 cycle.
If ETH is able to flip the previous resistance into a solid support level, then bears may have a hard time keeping prices low.
Following widespread sell-offs in the crypto markets, MATIC has managed to bounce more than 100% from its lows in June.
MATIC has seen continued growth over the past few days, confidently pushing past the resistance at $0.65 and heading towards the $1.00 mark.
The price has now shot past the $0.75 level and the 21-day simple moving average which has provided support on several occasions. Notably, MATIC has also crossed the 38.2% Fib retracement level indicating further bullish momentum.
However, the $1.00 mark will likely act as the next major resistance level as it serves as a psychological barrier and a key zone to look out for according to the Fib retracement tool.
A breach of this level and a few days of consolidation will indicate that the bulls are in control with a higher target of $1.30 in the medium term.
A failure to breakout may push prices back down to the $0.85 level before another attempt can be made.
