Bitcoin and Ethereum – Weekly Technical Analysis – September 20th, 2021

Bitcoin

Bitcoin, BTC to USD, rose by 2.61% in the week ending 19th September. Partially reversing an 11.09% slide from the week prior, Bitcoin ended the week at $47,239.0.

A bearish start to the week saw Bitcoin fall to a Monday intraweek low $43,444.0 before making a move.

Steering clear of the first major support level at $41,877, Bitcoin rallied to a Saturday intraweek high $48,819.0.

Falling short of the 23.6% FIB of $50,473 and the first major resistance level at $51,545, Bitcoin slid back to sub-$47,000 levels before ending the week at $47,200 levels.

4 days in the red that included a 2.34% fall on Monday delivered the downside for the week.

For the week ahead

Bitcoin would need to avoid the $46,501 pivot to support a run the first major resistance level at $49,557 and the 23.6% FIB of $50,473.

Support from the broader market would be needed for Bitcoin to break out from last week’s high $48,819.0.

Barring an extended crypto rally, the 23.6% FIB would likely cap any upside.

In the event of an extended breakout, Bitcoin could test resistance at $52,000 before any pullback. The second major resistance level sits at $51,876.

A fall through the $46,501 pivot would bring the first major support level at $44,182 into play.

Barring an extended sell-off, Bitcoin should steer clear of the 38.2% FIB of $41,592. The second major support level sits at $41,126.

At the time of writing, Bitcoin was down by 0.29% to $47,103.0. A mixed start to the week saw Bitcoin rise to an early Monday high $47,327.0 before falling to a low $46,792.0.

Bitcoin left the major support and resistance levels untested early on.

Support from the broader market would be needed, however, for Ethereum to break out from $3,550 levels.

Failure to move through the 23.6% FIB and the $3,372 pivot would bring the first major support level at $3,068.
