0

Crypto is mirroring stock markets’ gains again today, with Wall Street’s sharp climb after opening higher likely to provide further impetus for Bitcoin. Last Friday, the crypto market saw a significant decline correlating US Indexes. 

Bitcoin and Ethereum, the major players in the crypto market, gained 2% in the past 24 hours. Both crypto combined capitalization reached nearly $1.2 trillion today, with total crypto market capital at $1.9 trillion.

The crypto markets see a broad recovery as equities continue their upward trajectory. The BTC/USD pair is trading above $40,000 while ETH/USD has gained ground close to the $3,000 resistance level. Both coins are gaining amid this positive trend for all assets.

The S&P 500, Dow Jones Industrial Average, and Nasdaq Composite have all gone up today. The S&P 500 is up 2.3%, the Dow Jones Industrial Average is higher by 1.7%, and the Nasdaq Composite leads the upside with 2.8%. This happened as Asian and European stocks had good days before the US Federal Reserve’s 0.5% interest rate hike.

Bitcoin And Ethereum Still Look Bullish

The bitcoin price is holding well above $38,000, but it’s close to touching another key supply wall at $40,000. However, this could signify that the bulls still have some strength and may push higher soon.

As per Altcoin Sherpa, a crypto trader and analyst, “the market structure looks bullish.” He further added;

As long as these lows are maintained and we still see higher lows, I think the bullish market structure is still intact. Still thinking 55k+ in the coming weeks.

While commenting on Ethereum prediction, Altcoin Sherpa said;

Unlike $BTC, ETH is still decently above its last lows and still has a bullish market structure (btc does too but its closer). Would like to see a higher low formed for #Ethereum. I think that it’s still at the mercy of BTC though, as always – if BTC tanks, so will ETH.

“Bitcoin could go higher,” said Rekt Capital, one of the top crypto analysts. The analyst said;

Bullish Divergence on the 4-hourly is playing out. Key resistance in the very short-term will be this red area [above $40,300]. Turning it into support like in the previous yellow circle would be a bullish sign for trend continuation.

Bitcoin has been below its 100-day moving average for a few weeks. The price has been supported by $37,000 and the falling trendline. This has lessened the bearish momentum. The $37,000 mark has become an important support for Bitcoin. If it falls below that, the price might go down to $30,000.
