Most of the cryptocurrencies are continuing their uptrend. The bottom seems to be in its place. The bearish phase in most cryptocurrencies has lasted for over 50 days. This is another reason why they should be looked at in a positive manner.
Also, if you’re looking for a longer term investments in cryptocurrency, now might be a good time as well. You can easily diversify your portfolio across various cryptocurrencies as most of them are fallen by 15% to 50%. Thereafter, it would become easier for you to not only diversify your portfolio but earn good returns.
USD / Bitcoin (BTC):
Bitcoin seems prime for a strong rally as an inverse head and shoulders chart pattern can be seen on its 1-hour time frame. Price is already testing the neckline of the chart pattern and an upside break could send it higher by $2,000 or the same height as the chart formation.
The 100 SMA has crossed above the longer-term 200 SMA to signal that the path of least resistance is to the upside. This suggests that a reversal from the earlier selloff is underway. Price has also moved above the 100 SMA so it could now hold as dynamic support.
Stochastic is still heading lower, though, so bitcoin could pull back before heading north. However, the oscillator is nearing oversold levels to show exhaustion among bears and a potential return in buying pressure. source: fxdailyreport
RSI has more room to fall so bitcoin might follow suit and retest the support around $8,000 before gaining more upside traction. A move below the 200 SMA, however, could mean that sellers are still in control.
Ethereum markets tried to rally initially during the trading session on Monday but ran into a bit of trouble at the $900 level. By doing so, it looks as if we are rolling over a bit, and this makes sense as we have seen so much in the way of significant bearish pressure. Volume is very light, so that doesn’t help either.
We are trying to touch the 20 SMA on the Bollinger band indicator, which of course should offer a bit of resistance as well. I think there is support at the $800 level, and then eventually the $700 level after that. source: fxempire
If we break down below $700, it’s likely that we continue to go even lower. If we could surge to the upside a break above the $1000 level, that would be very bullish for the market.

If we check IOTA price action using the top-down approach then we realize that last week’s bears weren’t as rapid as they were on week ending February 3.
As such, bear confirmation is clear but those long lower wicks are buyers pushing prices in lower time frames and that translates to yesterday’s bulls. Now, here’s a thing with IOTA.
Yes, the general mood is slowly improving and leaning towards buyers but there’s a lot of resistance before say prices trend above $3 in the daily chart.
First we must see buyers surging past the middle BB-our immediate resistance, then $2 and then lastly $3.
From there we can begin looking for buying opportunities with any pullback to any of these levels acting as perfect buying levels.
Like IOTA, we are seeing the same development in DASHUSD and the importance of the middle BB cannot be understated.
As we have said on many occasions, as long as prices remain below the middle BB, we shall continue trading in the direction of the bearish break out as directed by week ending February 3 candlestick.
That long bearish engulfing candlestick is definitive and its highs shall be our important resistance. We say important because for prices to test $850, it must first close above the middle BB and the first Fibonacci extension line at $660.
It might look like a tall order but considering the rate of depreciation over the past few weeks, all we need is injection of bull pressure and if prices are nudged over $660, buyers can start picking long opportunities in lower time frames.
Same as the weekly chart, the liquidating effect of the middle BB is apparent. As you can see, not even the double bar bullish reversal pattern from February 5 and 6 forming right at the 78.6% Fibonacci retracement line at $520 could inject enough momentum for a close above it.
Fact is, on February 10, a doji candlestick was formed and that was confirmed on February 11. There is nothing that I can recommend in this accumulation besides patience even if momentum is pointing up from deep the oversold territory.
In my opinion, buy triggers should be above $750 or the 61.8% Fibonacci retracement line with any correction being buying opportunities.
It is important that buyers are trending above the main resistance trend line in our entry chart and while we expected higher highs, prices are finding a ceiling at $620.
This level is a strong resistance previous support and as long as prices find a selling effect, then there is a likelihood that a retracement back to the break out trend line at $420 is on the cards.
If not, then any break above $660 means we start buying with every correction back to $620.
Monero markets also rally during the day, gaining over 6% as I record this video. However, we are starting to get back some of the gains, and we are most decidedly in a negative attitude. I believe that if we break down below the lows of the Sunday candle, the market probably drops back to the $160 handle. I also recognize the $280 level above as being resistive, so it’s not until we break above that level that I think the market will have shown enough confidence to continue going higher. After the bloodbath last week, Monero is going to continue to struggle until the other coins rally.
