Bitcoin

Bitcoin saw a small 1% price decline this week, but it managed to remain within the confines of a symmetrical triangle pattern.

Throughout the week, BTC attempted to break above the upper boundary of the triangle on numerous occasions but failed each time. The coin recently found support at the lower edge of the triangle.

BTC can be considered directionless (neutral) until a breakout occurs from this triangle. If it breaks toward the upside, then BTC can be expected to head back to the 2020 highs at around $10,430. Alternatively, if it breaks lower, BTC could unwind back toward $8,000.

Looking ahead, the first level of resistance above the triangle lies at $9,426. This is followed by added resistance at $9,815, $10,000, and $10,226.

On the other side, the first level of support lies at $9,000 (100-days EMA & lower boundary of the triangle). Beneath this, support is found at $8,700 (.382 Fib Retracement & 200-days EMA), $8,500, and $8,160 (.5 Fib Retracement).

Ethereum

Ethereum saw a 2.2% price drop this week as it falls into the $233 level. The cryptocurrency attempted to push above the $245 resistance level earlier in the week but failed to do so. This caused it to roll over and head into the support at the rising trend line.

ETH dipped beneath the trend line yesterday. However, the bulls managed to regroup and push it above the trend line before the candle closed, which has kept the uptrend alive for ETH.

Looking ahead, if the sellers push beneath the rising trend line, the first level of support lies at $225. Beneath this, added support is found at $215 (.236 Fib Retracement & 100-days EMA), $205 (200-days EMA), and $200.

On the other side, the first level of resistance lies at $245 (bearish .786 Fib Retracement). This is followed by resistance at $250 and $265 (bearish .886 Fib Retracement).

ETH recently found support at the 0.0253 BTC level, which allowed the coin to bounce slightly higher today.

Looking ahead, if the sellers eventually push ETH beneath 0.0253 BTC, the first level of support is expected at 0.025 BTC (.236 Fib Retracement). This is followed by added support at 0.0241 BTC(.382 Fib Retracement & 100-days EMA), and 0.0234 BTC (.5 Fib Retracement & 200-days EMA).
