While Gains Have Been Slower Than Most Crypto Assets, Meme Coin Economy Swells by 24%While a great number of crypto asset values have improved over the last month, meme-based crypto assets have also advanced against the U.S. dollar. 53 days ago on June 21, the top meme coins by market valuation were once worth $14.5 billion and since then, the meme coin economy has grown by 24.82%, tapping $18.1 […]

Shiba Inu eyes 50% rally as SHIB price enters ‘cup-and-handle’ breakout mode

Price analysis 8/12: BTC, ETH, BNB, XRP, ADA, SOL, DOGE, DOT, MATIC, AVAX

Bitcoin and many altcoins are carving out bottoming patterns as sentiment across the crypto and equities markets continues to improve.

Bitcoin (BTC) could not overcome the barrier at $25,000 on Aug. 11 even though it had two catalysts in the form of a "favorable" Consumer Price Index print and news that BlackRock — the world's largest asset manager, overseeing over $10 trillion in total assets — had launched a spot Bitcoin investment product. 

In comparison, Ether (ETH) has managed to hold on to its recent gains on news that the Goerli testnet had successfully activated proof-of-stake, clearing the path for Ethereum’s mainnet transition planned for Sept. 15 or Sep16. Data from Santiment shows that Ether whale transactions have increased along with possible whale accumulation.

However, analysts remain divided about the prospects of the current recovery. While some believe that Bitcoin’s rally could rise above $28,000, others are not so bullish and they expect the price to turn down and resume the downtrend.

Could buyers clear the overhead hurdle in Bitcoin and select altcoins? Let’s study the charts of the top-10 cryptocurrencies to find out.

BTC/USDT

Bitcoin nudged above the overhead resistance at $24,668 on Aug. 11 but the bulls could not sustain the higher levels. This indicates that bears have not yet given up and are selling on rallies.

BTC/USDT daily chart. Source: TradingView

The price remains squeezed between the 20-day exponential moving average (EMA) ($23,151) and $24,668. Usually, a tight range trading is followed by a range expansion but it is difficult to predict the direction of the breakout with certainty.

In this case, the 20-day EMA is gradually sloping up and the relative strength index (RSI) is in the positive territory, indicating the path of least resistance is to the upside.

If buyers thrust and sustain the price above $25,000, the bullish momentum could pick up and the pair could rally to $28,000 and then to $32,000.

This positive view could invalidate in the near term if the price turns down and breaks below the 20-day EMA. The pair could then decline to the 50-day simple moving average (SMA) ($21,845).

ETH/USDT

Ether attempted to rise above $2,000 on Aug. 11 but the long wick on the day’s candlestick suggests that bears are defending the level with vigor.

ETH/USDT daily chart. Source: TradingView

However, a positive sign is that the bulls have not ceded ground to the bears. This suggests that traders are not hurrying to book profits as they anticipate the up-move to continue.

The upsloping moving averages and the RSI near the overbought territory indicate advantage to buyers. If bulls drive the price above $2,000, the ETH/USDT pair could rally to the downtrend line.

Alternatively, if the price turns down sharply from the current level, the bears will try to sink the pair to the breakout level of $1,700. The bulls are expected to buy the dip to this support.

BNB/USDT

Binance Coin (BNB) has been facing stiff resistance at the overhead resistance zone between $338 to $350. Although bears have repeatedly thwarted attempts by the bulls to clear this hurdle, the buyers have not given up much ground. This indicates that the bulls are not rushing to the exit as they expect a move higher.

BNB/USDT daily chart. Source: TradingView

A tight consolidation near the overhead resistance increases the likelihood of a break above it. If that happens, the BNB/USDT pair could attempt a rally to $380 and then to $414.

The important support to watch out for on the downside is the 20-day EMA ($300). If bears sink the price below this level, the pair could decline to $275 and then to the 50-day SMA ($261). A break below this support could tilt the advantage in favor of the bears.

XRP/USDT

Ripple (XRP) remains stuck between the overhead resistance at $0.39 and the 20-day EMA ($0.37). The bears attempted to resolve this uncertainty in their favor on Aug. 9 and Au10 but the bulls purchased the dip and pushed the price back above the 20-day EMA.

XRP/USDT daily chart. Source: TradingView

The buyers tried to push the price above $0.39 on Aug. 11 but the bears held their ground. This indicates that $0.39 and the 50-day SMA ($0.35) are the critical levels to watch out for in the short term.

If buyers clear the overhead hurdle, the XRP/USDT pair could rally to $0.48 and later to $0.54. On the contrary, if the price slips below the 50-day SMA, the pair could slide toward the crucial support at $0.30.

ADA/USDT

Buyers attempted to push Cardano (ADA) above the overhead resistance at $0.55 on Aug. 11 but the bears held the level successfully. The price could now drop to the 20-day EMA ($0.51).

ADA/USDT daily chart. Source: TradingView

The tight range trading between the 20-day EMA and $0.55 is unlikely to continue for long. If buyers drive the price above $0.55, the ADA/USDT pair could rally to $0.63 and then to the stiff overhead resistance at $0.70.

Contrary to this assumption, if the price turns down and breaks below the 20-day EMA, the bears will attempt to challenge the support at $0.45. If the support holds, the pair may extend the consolidation between $0.45 and $0.55 for some more time.

SOL/USDT

Solana (SOL) bounced off the 50-day SMA ($39) on Aug. 10. indicating that bulls continue to buy at lower levels. The bulls attempted to push the price to the overhead resistance at $48 but the bears stalled the recovery at $45.32 on Aug. 11.

SOL/USDT daily chart. Source: TradingView

The SOL/USDT pair could continue to trade inside the ascending triangle formation for some more time. The bears will have to sink the price below the support line to invalidate this bullish setup.

Alternatively, the bulls will have to push and sustain the price above $48 to complete the bullish pattern. If that happens, the pair could rally to $60 and then make a move to the pattern target at $71.

DOGE/USDT

Dogecoin (DOGE) once again turned down from the overhead resistance at $0.08 on Aug. 11, indicating that bears continue to defend the level aggressively.

DOGE/USDT daily chart. Source: TradingView

The bears will attempt to sink the price below the moving averages and challenge the trendline of the ascending triangle pattern. A break and close below this support will invalidate the bullish setup, opening the doors for a possible retest of $0.06.

Contrary to this assumption, if the price rebounds off the moving averages, it will suggest that bulls continue to buy at lower levels. The bulls will have to push the price above $0.08 to complete the ascending triangle pattern. If that happens, the DOGE/USDT pair may rally to $0.10.

DOT/USDT

Polkadot (DOT) has been witnessing a close battle between the bulls and the bears near the breakout level of $9. The bears are attempting to pull the price back below $9 while the bulls are trying to flip the level into support.

DOT/USDT daily chart. Source: TradingView

The rising 20-day EMA ($8.47) and the RSI in the positive territory, indicating advantage to buyers. If the price rises from the current level and breaks above $9.65, the DOT/USDT pair could rally to $10.80 and later to $12.

Alternatively, if the price breaks below the strong support zone of $9 and the 20-day EMA, it will suggest that the recent breakout may have been a bull trap. The pair could then decline to the 50-day SMA ($7.62).

MATIC/USDT

Polygon (MATIC) has been trading in a tight range between the 20-day EMA ($0.88) and $0.96 for the past few days, indicating indecision among buyers and sellers.

MATIC/USDT daily chart. Source: TradingView

If this uncertainty resolves to the upside, the MATIC/USDT pair could rally to the stiff overhead resistance at $1.02. The bulls will have to overcome this barrier to signal the start of the next leg of the up-move to $1.26 and later to $1.50.

Contrary to this assumption, if the price turns down and breaks below the 20-day EMA, the short-term advantage could tilt in favor of the bears. The pair could then decline to the strong support at $0.75.

AVAX/USDT

Avalanche (AVAX) has been trading above the breakout level of $26.38 for the past few days, which suggests that bulls are in no hurry to surrender their advantage.

AVAX/USDT daily chart. Source: TradingView

The gradually rising 20-day EMA ($25.6) and the RSI near the overbought zone indicate advantage to buyers. If bulls propel the price above $31, the AVAX/USDT pair could pick up momentum and rally to $33 and later to the pattern target of $39.05.

This positive view could invalidate in the near term if the price turns down and breaks below the 20-day EMA. If that happens, the pair could decline to the 50-day SMA ($21.91) and then to the support line.

Price analysis 8/10: BTC, ETH, BNB, XRP, ADA, SOL, DOGE, DOT, MATIC, AVAX

After Aug. 10’s neutral CPI print, Bitcoin and altcoins are attempting to flip stiff overhead resistance levels to support in order to prepare for the next leg up.

The Aug. 10 Consumer Price Index (CPI) report shows year-over-year inflation rose 8.5% in July and while this figure is below economists’ expectations of 8.7%, it is still high. Although inflation remains much higher than the Federal Reserve's 2% target, the marginal slowdown raises hopes that the rate hikes by the Federal Reserve have started to work. That has reduced the probability of a 75 basis point rate hike in the September meeting from 68% on Aug. 9 to 37.5%, according to CME group data.

Risky assets, including the cryptocurrency markets, responded positively to the CPI print. Compared to Bitcoin (BTC), the altcoins are enjoying a stronger rally. This has pulled Bitcoin’s dominance near its yearly lows while Ether (ETH) has climbed near its yearly high.

According to CoinShares data, Ether-related products have seen inflows of $159 million in the past seven weeks. This indicates that Ether seems to be garnering attention from institutional investors in anticipation of the Merge, which is scheduled for Sept. 19.

Could Bitcoin and altcoins sustain the higher levels? Let’s study the charts of the top-10 cryptocurrencies to find out.

BTC/USDT

Bitcoin turned down from $24,245 on Aug. 8 and dropped to the 20-day exponential moving average (EMA) ($22,966) on Aug. 9. The bulls aggressively purchased the dip on Aug. 10 and are attempting to push the price above the overhead resistance at $24,668.

BTC/USDT daily chart. Source: TradingView

If they succeed, the BTC/USDT pair could pick up momentum and rally to $28,000. The bears may mount a strong resistance at this level but if bulls overcome this barrier, the pair could rise to $32,000. The gradually upsloping 20-day EMA and the relative strength index (RSI) in the positive territory indicate the path of least resistance is to the upside.

Conversely, if the price turns down from $24,668, the bears will again attempt to sink the pair below the 20-day EMA. If they manage to do that, the pair could decline to the 50-day simple moving average (SMA ($21,708). A break below this level could tilt the advantage in favor of the bears.

ETH/USDT

Ether turned down from $1,818 on Aug. 8 but the bears could not sink the price below the 20-day EMA ($1,637). This suggests strong demand at lower levels.

ETH/USDT daily chart. Source: TradingView

The ETH/USDT pair rebounded off the 20-day EMA on Aug. 10 and has cleared the overhead hurdle at $1,818. If buyers sustain the price above this level, the pair could rally to the psychological level of $2,000 and then to $2,200. The rising moving averages and the RSI in the positive territory indicate that bulls have the upper hand.

This bullish view will be invalidated if the price turns down and plummets below the 20-day EMA. If that happens, the pair may drop toward the 50-day SMA ($1,388). That could delay the start of the next leg of the up-move.

BNB/USDT

BNB turned down from the overhead resistance zone of $338 to $350 on Aug. 8 but the bears could not sustain the lower levels on Aug. 10. This suggests that bulls are aggressively buying the dips.

BNB/USDT daily chart. Source: TradingView

The bulls will again attempt to clear the overhead zone. If they succeed, the BNB/USDT pair could pick up momentum and rally toward $414. Although the rising moving averages indicate advantage to buyers, the overbought zone on the RSI indicates that a minor pullback or a consolidation is possible in the near term.

If the price turns down from the overhead zone, the first support is at $308. The bears will have to sink the price below this level to challenge the 20-day EMA ($296). This is an important level to keep an eye on because a break and close below it could sink the pair to $275.

XRP/USDT

The bulls failed to push XRP above the overhead resistance at $0.39 on Aug. 8. This attracted sharp selling by the bears who pulled the price below the 20-day EMA ($0.37) on Aug. 9.

XRP/USDT daily chart. Source: TradingView

A minor positive is that the bulls bought the dip and have pushed the price back above the 20-day EMA on Aug. 10. The buyers will again attempt to push the price above the overhead resistance zone between $0.39 and $0.41. If they succeed, the XRP/USDT pair could rise to $0.48 and later to $0.54.

Contrary to this assumption, if the price turns down from the overhead resistance and breaks below the 50-day SMA ($0.35), it will suggest that the pair may remain range-bound between $0.30 and $0.39 for a few more days.

ADA/USDT

Cardano (ADA) turned down from the overhead resistance at $0.55 on Aug. 8 and dropped to the 20-day EMA ($0.51) on Aug. 9, indicating that bears continue to defend the overhead resistance aggressively.

ADA/USDT daily chart. Source: TradingView

The ADA/USDT pair rebounded sharply off the 20-day EMA on Aug. 10, suggesting that the bulls are buying the dips with vigor. If buyers clear the overhead hurdle, the pair could start its northward march to $0.63 and then to $0.70.

Contrary to this assumption, if the price once again turns down from $0.55, the likelihood of a break below the 20-day EMA increases. If that happens, the pair could remain range-bound between $0.45 and $0.55 for a few more days.

SOL/USDT

The bulls tried to push Solana (SOL) to the overhead resistance at $48 on Aug. 8 but the bears had other plans. They stalled the recovery attempt at $44 and pulled the price back below the 20-day EMA ($40) on Aug. 9.

SOL/USDT daily chart. Source: TradingView

Both moving averages have flattened out and the RSI is just above the midpoint, indicating a balance between supply and demand. If the price rises from the current level and breaks above $44, the SOL/USDT pair could challenge the stiff resistance at $48.

A break above this level will complete a bullish ascending triangle pattern, opening the doors for a possible rally to $60 and then to the pattern target at $71.

Conversely, if the price turns down from the current level and breaks below the support line, the advantage could tilt in favor of the bears. The pair could then drop to $32.

DOGE/USDT

The long wick on Dogecoin’s (DOGE) Aug. 9 candlestick shows that the bears are aggressively defending the overhead resistance at $0.08. The sellers are attempting to build upon their advantage by pulling the price below the moving averages.

DOGE/USDT daily chart. Source: TradingView

If they succeed, the DOGE/USDT pair could drop to the trendline of the ascending triangle pattern. A break and close below this support could invalidate the bullish setup. The pair could then decline to $0.06.

Conversely, if the price turns up from the current level, it will suggest that bulls continue to buy on dips. The bulls will then make one more attempt to push the pair above the overhead resistance and start a new up-move. If they succeed, the pair could rally to $0.10.

DOT/USDT

Polkadot (DOT) broke and closed above the overhead resistance at $9 on Aug. 8 but the bulls could not build upon this strength. The bears sold aggressively and pulled the price back below $9 on Aug. 9.

DOT/USDT daily chart. Source: TradingView

However, a positive sign is that the DOT/USDT pair rebounded sharply off the 20-day EMA ($8.30). This indicates that the sentiment has turned positive and traders are buying on dips. The bulls will attempt to push the price to $10.80 and later to $12.

To invalidate this view, the bears will have to pull the price back below the 20-day EMA. Such a move will suggest that higher levels continue to attract strong selling by the bears. That could result in a range-bound action for a few days.

MATIC/USDT

The bulls have successfully sustained Polygon (MATIC) above the 20-day EMA ($0.87) but have failed to challenge the overhead resistance at $1.02. This suggests a lack of demand at higher levels.

MATIC/USDT daily chart. Source: TradingView

The gradually rising 20-day EMA and the RSI in the positive territory, indicate that bulls have the upper hand. If buyers push the price above $0.95, the MATIC/USDT pair could rally to the overhead resistance at $1.02. This is an important level for the bears to defend because a break above it could result in a rally to $1.26 and then $1.50.

Alternatively, if the price turns down from the current level and breaks below the 20-day EMA, it will suggest that the pair may oscillate between $0.75 and $1.02 for some more time.

AVAX/USDT

The long wick on Avalanche’s (AVAX) Aug. 8 candlestick shows that bears have not given up and they continue to sell on rallies. The price slipped back to the breakout level on Aug. 9 but the bulls successfully defended the level on Aug. 10.

AVAX/USDT daily chart. Source: TradingView

If buyers sustain the rebound, the AVAX/USDT pair could break above the overhead resistance at $31. If that happens, the pair could resume its up-move to $33 and later to the pattern target of $39.05.

The key level to watch on the downside is the 20-day EMA ($24.88). If bears sink the price below this support, it will suggest that the breakout above $26.38 may have been a bull trap. The pair could then decline to the support line.

Shiba Inu eyes 50% rally as SHIB price enters ‘cup-and-handle’ breakout mode

Price analysis 8/8: BTC, ETH, BNB, XRP, ADA, SOL, DOGE, DOT, MATIC, AVAX

Bitcoin price aims to break from its current range and flip $24,000 to support, while altcoins are following the upside move by attempting to confirm their bottoming patterns.

The United States equities markets and the cryptocurrency markets have started the week on a strong note, indicating that traders are not nervous about buying ahead of the important Consumer Price Index (CPI) data for July, which will be released on Aug. 10.

Another positive sign is that the recent recovery in Bitcoin (BTC) has not tempted investors to exit their positions in fear of another leg down. Glassnode data shows that the percentage of supply that has stayed dormant for three or more years rose to a new all-time high of 38.426% on Aug. 8.

BlackRock CEO Larry Fink sold 44,000 BlackRock shares in August, the biggest sale since the COVID-19 crash. Some analysts are speculating that the current recovery in the equities markets is only a bear market rally. If that is the case, then a downturn in the equities markets could also increase the selling in crypto prices as both remain closely correlated.

Could Bitcoin and select altcoins climb above their respective overhead resistance levels and extend the recovery in the short term? Let’s study the charts of the top-10 cryptocurrencies to find out.

BTC/USDT

Bitcoin bounced off the 20-day exponential moving average (EMA)($22,846) on Aug. 7 and the momentum picked up on Aug. 8. The buyers pushed the price above $24,000 and could challenge the overhead resistance at $24,668.

BTC/USDT daily chart. Source: TradingView

The 20-day EMA is sloping up and the relative strength index (RSI) is in the positive territory, indicating that bulls are in control. If buyers propel the price above the overhead resistance, the BTC/USDT pair could pick up momentum and rally to $28,000 as there is no significant resistance in between. The bears may try to stall the recovery at this level but if bulls overcome this barrier, the up-move could reach $32,000.

Contrary to this assumption, if the price turns down from $24,668, the pair could drop to the 20-day EMA. This is an important level to watch out for because a break below it could drag the price to the 50-day simple moving average (SMA($21,594). A break below this level could put the bears back on top.

ETH/USDT

Buyers pushed Ether (ETH) above the overhead resistance at $1,700 on Aug. 5 and the bulls successfully defended the breakout level on Aug. 6 and 7. Buying resumed on Aug. 8 and the bulls pushed the price above the overhead resistance at $1,785.

ETH/USDT daily chart. Source: TradingView

If bulls sustain the price above $1,785, the ETH/USDT pair could pick up momentum and rally to the psychological level at $2,000. This level may attract selling by the bears but if bulls arrest the next decline above $1,700, the likelihood of a break above $2,000 increases. If that happens, the pair could rally to the downtrend line.

This positive view could invalidate in the short term if the price turns down and breaks below the 20-day EMA ($1,606). The pair could then slide to the 50-day SMA ($1,362).

BNB/USDT

BNB recovery has reached the strong overhead resistance zone between $338 and $350 where the bears are expected to mount a strong defense.

BNB/USDT daily chart. Source: TradingView

If the price turns down from the current level, the BNB/USDT pair could decline to the 20-day EMA ($289). This is an important level to keep an eye on because a strong bounce off it will suggest that the positive sentiment remains intact and traders are viewing dips as a buying opportunity.

The bulls will then make one more attempt to clear the overhead zone. If they succeed, the BNB/USDT pair could further pick up momentum and rally toward $414. This positive view could invalidate in the short term if the price turns down and breaks below the 20-day EMA.

XRP/USDT

Ripple's (XRP) price has been squeezed between the 20-day EMA ($0.36) and the overhead resistance at $0.39 for the past few days. Usually, such tight ranges lead to a range expansion.

XRP/USDT daily chart. Source: TradingView

The rising 20-day EMA and the RSI in the positive area indicate advantage to buyers. If bulls push and sustain the price above $0.39, it will suggest the start of a new up-move. The XRP/USDT pair could then rise to $0.48 and later to $0.54.

This positive view will invalidate in the near term if the price turns down and breaks below the 20-day EMA. The pair could then drop to the 50-day SMA ($0.35). Such a move will suggest that the pair may spend some more time inside the range.

ADA/USDT

Cardano (ADA) bounced off the 20-day EMA ($0.50) on Aug. 5 and has reached the strong overhead resistance at $0.55.

ADA/USDT daily chart. Source: TradingView

The 20-day EMA is sloping up and the RSI is in the positive territory, indicating that the path of least resistance is to the upside. If buyers thrust the price above $0.55, the ADA/USDT pair could start its northward march toward $0.63 and then to $0.70. The bears may pose a strong challenge at this level.

To invalidate this positive view, the bears will have to sink and sustain the price below the 50-day SMA. That could extend the stay of the pair inside the range between $0.40 and $0.55 for a few more days.

SOL/USDT

Solana (SOL) rose above the 20-day EMA ($40) on Aug. 5 and the bulls thwarted attempts by the bears to sink the price back below the level. The buying resumed on Aug. 8 and the bulls will attempt to push the price to the overhead resistance at $48.

SOL/USDT daily chart. Source: TradingView

The 20-day EMA is rising up gradually and the RSI is in the positive zone, indicating that the bulls have the upper hand. If buyers drive the price above $48, the bullish ascending triangle pattern will complete. The pair could then start a rally to $60 and thereafter to the pattern target at $71.

Alternatively, if the price turns down from $48 like the previous two occasions, it will suggest that bears are defending the level aggressively. That could keep the pair stuck inside the triangle for a few more days. The bullish setup will invalidate on a break below the support line.

DOGE/USDT

Dogecoin (DOGE) bounced off the 20-day EMA ($0.07) on Aug. 7, indicating that bulls are defending the moving averages with vigor. However, the long wick on the Aug. 8 candlestick suggests that bears are selling at higher levels.

DOGE/USDT daily chart. Source: TradingView

The flattish moving averages indicate a balance between supply and demand but the RSI in the positive territory suggests a minor advantage to the buyers. If bulls push the price above the overhead resistance at $0.08, it will complete the ascending triangle pattern. The pair could then start a rally to the psychological resistance at $0.10.

Conversely, if the price turns down from the overhead resistance, the DOGE/USDT pair could stay inside the triangle for a few more days. The bears will have to sink the price below the trendline to invalidate the bullish setup.

DOT/USDT

Polkadot (DOT) turned down from the overhead resistance at $9 on Aug. 6 but the bulls did not cede ground to the bears. They resumed their purchase on Aug. 7 and pushed the price above the overhead resistance on Aug. 8.

DOT/USDT daily chart. Source: TradingView

The 20-day EMA is sloping up and the RSI is in the positive territory, indicating that bulls have the upper hand. If buyers sustain the price above $9, the bullish momentum could pick up and the DOT/USDT pair could rise to $10.80 and later to $12.

Contrary to this assumption, if the price turns down and breaks back below $9, it will suggest that the breakout may have been a bull trap. The pair could then decline to the 20-day EMA ($8.07) and later to the 50-day SMA ($7.49).

MATIC/USDT

Polygon (MATIC) formed a Doji candlestick pattern on Aug. 7, which resolved to the upside on Aug. 8. This suggests that bulls are buying the dips to the 20-day EMA ($0.86).

MATIC/USDT daily chart. Source: TradingView

The upsloping moving averages and the RSI in the positive territory indicate advantage to buyers. The MATIC/USDT pair could rise to the overhead resistance at $1.02 where the bears may mount a strong defense.

If bulls do not give up much ground from $1.02, the likelihood of a break above it increases. The pair could then rally to $1.26 and then to $1.50. The first sign of weakness will be a break and close below the 20-day EMA. That could open the doors for a possible drop to $0.75.

AVAX/USDT

Avalanche (AVAX) broke and closed above the strong overhead resistance at $26.38 on Aug. 6, indicating the completion of the bullish ascending triangle pattern.

AVAX/USDT daily chart. Source: TradingView

The AVAX/USDT pair could rise to $33 and later to the pattern target of $39.05. While the upsloping moving averages indicate advantage to buyers, the RSI has risen into the overbought zone, suggesting a minor correction in the near term.

If bulls flip the $26.38 level into support during the next correction, it will signal a potential trend change. This positive view could be invalidated in the near term if the price turns down and breaks below the moving averages.

Price analysis 8/5: BTC, ETH, BNB, XRP, ADA, SOL, DOGE, DOT, MATIC, AVAX

Bitcoin and most major altcoins have bounced off their strong support levels and may challenge the overhead resistance in an attempt to resume the up-move.

The United States Labor market added 528,000 jobs in July, much better than the 258,000 estimate. Wages saw growth of 5.2% year-over-year and 0.5% over the month. This suggests that inflation remains high and the U.S. Federal Reserve may continue with its rate hikes in the near future. 

After staying in close correlation with the U.S. equities markets for the past several months, the crypto space could be ready to chalk out a new course.

Bloomberg Intelligence senior commodity strategist Mike McGlone and senior market structure analyst Jamie Coutts said in a recent report that Bitcoin (BTC) has started base building similar to the one seen near $5,000 in 2018–2019. They expect the recovery to decouple from stocks and behave more like U.S. "Treasury bonds or gold.”

Although crypto prices have plunged sharply during the ongoing bear market, it has not dented investors’ appetite. A report by crypto analytics firm Messari and Dove Metrics showed that the crypto space raised $30.3 billion in funds in 2022, surpassing the total amount raised in 2021.

Could Bitcoin continue its recovery or will bears pose a strong challenge at higher levels? Let’s study the charts of the top-10 cryptocurrencies to find out.

BTC/USDT

The bears pulled the price below the 20-day exponential moving average (EMA)($22,630) on Aug. 4 but could not sustain the lower levels. This indicates that the bulls are defending the level aggressively.

The gradually up-sloping 20-day EMA and the relative strength index (RSI) in the positive territory indicate a minor advantage to buyers. If the price rises off the 20-day EMA, the bulls will attempt to push the BTC/USDT pair to the overhead resistance at $24,668.

This is an important level to keep an eye on because if the price breaks above $24,668, the pair could pick up momentum and rally toward $28,000 and then on to $32,000. Such a move will suggest that the pair may have bottomed out.

Contrary to this assumption, if the price turns down from the current level or the overhead resistance and breaks below the 20-day EMA, it will suggest that bears continue to sell on minor rallies. That could open the doors for a drop to the 50-day simple moving average (($21,388).

ETH/USDT

Ether (ETH) has been trading between the 20-day EMA ($1,560) and the $1,700 resistance for the past four days. Usually, tight range trading is followed by a range expansion.

The up-sloping 20-day EMA and the RSI in the positive zone indicate advantage to buyers. A break and close above the overhead resistance zone between $1,700 and $1,785 could open the doors for a possible rally to $2,000 and later to $2,200.

Alternatively, if the ETH/USDT pair turns down from the current level and breaks below the 20-day EMA, it will suggest that bears continue to defend the overhead zone with all their might. That could result in a decline to the strong support at $1,280.

BNB/USDT

BNB bounced off the $275 support on Aug. 2 and broke above the immediate resistance at $302 on Aug. 3. This indicates the resumption of the up-move.

The up-sloping 20-day EMA ($277) and the RSI in the overbought zone indicate that bulls are in command. The BNB/USDT pair could rally to the stiff overhead resistance at $350. This level is likely to attract strong selling from the bears.

To invalidate this bullish view, the bears will have to sink and sustain the price below the 20-day EMA. If that happens, short-term traders may rush to the exit and that could pull the pair down to the 50-day SMA ($246).

XRP/USDT

The buyers have successfully held the 20-day EMA ($0.36) support in the past few days but have failed to achieve a strong rebound in XRP. This suggests that bears are selling on rallies.

The XRP/USDT pair could remain stuck between the 20-day EMA and the overhead resistance zone between $0.39 and $0.41. If bulls clear the overhead hurdle, the positive momentum could pick up and the pair could rally to $0.48 and then to $0.54.

Alternatively, if the price turns down and breaks below the 20-day EMA, it will suggest that the demand has dried up. That could sink the pair to the 50-day SMA ($0.34) and keep the pair range-bound between $0.30 and $0.39 for a few more days.

ADA/USDT

The bears repeatedly tried to sink Cardano (ADA) below the 20-day EMA ($0.50) in the past three days but the bulls held their ground.

The ADA/USDT pair has rebounded off the 20-day EMA and the buyers will attempt to push the price above the overhead resistance at $0.55. If they manage to do that, the bullish momentum could pick up and the pair could rise to $0.63 and later toward $0.70.

Alternatively, if the price turns down from the overhead resistance, it will suggest that bears are active at higher levels. The sellers will then again attempt to sink the price below the moving averages and retain the pair inside the range between $0.40 and $0.55 for some more time.

SOL/USDT

The bears tried to sink the price below the support line on Aug. 3 but the bulls defended the level successfully. Solana (SOL) formed an inside-day candlestick pattern on Aug. 4, which resolved to the upside on Aug. 5.

If buyers sustain the price above the 20-day EMA ($40), the SOL/USDT pair could climb to $44 and then retest the stiff overhead resistance at $48. The bulls will have to clear this hurdle to signal the formation of an ascending triangle pattern. This bullish setup has a target objective of $71.

Contrary to this assumption, if the price turns down and breaks below the support line, the bullish setup will be invalidated. The pair could then slide toward the strong support at $31.

DOGE/USDT

Dogecoin (DOGE) bounced off the 50-day SMA ($0.07) on Aug. 4 and the bulls extended the up-move above the 20-day EMA ($0.07) on Aug. 5.

The bulls will attempt to push the price toward the overhead resistance at $0.08. This is an important level for the bears to defend because a break and close above it will complete an ascending triangle pattern. The DOGE/USDT pair could then start an up-move to $0.10 and then to the pattern target at $0.11.

On the other hand, if the price turns down from the current level and breaks below the 50-day SMA, it will suggest that bears are selling on rallies. The pair could then drop to the support line of the triangle. A break below this level could negate the bullish setup.

DOT/USDT

Polkadot (DOT) bounced off the 20-day EMA ($7.78) on Aug. 3, indicating demand at lower levels. The buyers will attempt to push the price to the overhead resistance zone between $9 and $9.21.

If bulls clear this overhead hurdle, the DOT/USDT pair could pick up momentum and start its northward march toward $10.80 and then $12. The up-sloping 20-day EMA and the RSI in the positive zone indicate that buyers are in control.

To invalidate this bullish view, the bears will have to sell aggressively and sink the pair below the moving averages. If that happens, the pair may remain stuck inside the range between $6 and $9 for some more time.

MATIC/USDT

The buyers have successfully held Polygon (MATIC) above the 20-day EMA ($0.85) during the correction, which suggests a change in sentiment from selling on rallies to buying on dips.

Both moving averages are sloping up and the RSI is in the positive territory, indicating advantage to buyers. If bulls thrust the price above the overhead resistance at $1.02, the MATIC/USDT pair could rally to $1.26 and then to $1.50.

Conversely, if the price turns down and breaks below the 20-day EMA, it will suggest that the pair may extend its stay inside the range between $0.75 and $1 for some more time. The sellers will gain the upper hand on a break below $0.75.

AVAX/USDT

Avalanche (AVAX) has bounced off the 20-day EMA ($22.86), indicating that bulls are buying the dips to this support.

The buyers will drive the price to the stiff overhead resistance at $26.38. The gradually up-sloping 20-day EMA and the RSI in the positive territory indicate advantage to buyers. If bulls push the price above $26.38, the AVAX/USDT pair will complete a bullish ascending triangle pattern. The pair could then rally to $33 and later to $38.

Contrary to this assumption, if the price turns down from the overhead resistance and breaks below the 20-day EMA, the pair could drop to the support line.
