Bitcoin (BTC)

Bitcoin is up a small 1% this week after getting rejected trying to breach above the $50,000 mark on Monday. The current high since May now lies at $50,500. Unfortunately, BTC was unable to sustain this level and ended up closing the daily candle beneath $50K.

Following the rejection, BTC headed sharply lower: Yesterday it fell back beneath $47,800, recording its weekly low amid $46.3k, however, the bitcoin price managed to close the day on top of the crucial 20-day MA (~$46.9k) – the first bullish sign for a possible reversal.

Today, BTC bounced from the support at the lower angle of the wedge and is attempting to push higher as of writing these lines. The cryptocurrency is now trading inside an ascending wedge formation, whereas the 3-month high resistance at $50,500 was provided by the upper angle of the wedge.

The 4-hour chart gives a clearer perspective of how the wedge pattern is currently being played out.

Looking ahead, the first critical level lies around $47,800 (bearish .618 Fib). This is followed by $49,400 (1.272 Fib Extension), $50,000, $50,740 (1.414 Fib Extension & upper angle of the wedge), and $52,000. Further resistance lies at $53,000 (bearish .786 Fib), and $54,210 (1.272 Fib Extension).

Ethereum (ETH)

Ethereum saw a sluggish week, but after all, ETH is up 1% on the weekly – just as BTC. The second-largest coin bounced from support at $3,000 last Thursday and pushed higher at the start of this week to meet the resistance at $3350 (bearish .618 Fib).

ETH could not overcome this resistance and started to decline after BTC got rejected by the $50k mark. Initially, Ether was holding the support at the 20-day MA at $3180 but eventually dropped beneath this key level yesterday to reach a closing price of $3056.

Together with the sentiment, ETH has since bounced from this support and is now trading above $3200.
