Will crypto bounce back in 2022? Here’s what experts say
“Most cryptocurrencies dipped over the weekend with increasing selling pressure. Despite the decline, Bitcoin has gained nearly 8% over the past week. If bulls can keep the bar above the US$21,000 level, we might see sharp upward moves. If sellers take over the BTC, we might likely see a bearish trend this week,” Edul Patel, CEO and co-founder of crypto investment platform Mudrex told FE Online.
“As the price of Ethereum falls, the revenue of projects based on the network is also plunging drastically. ETH has lost nearly 5%, and it is about to test its support level at US$1,200. If buyers lose control to sellers, we might see Ethereum falling to the US$1,000 zone,” he added.
Next key support for Bitcoin And Ethereum
“Last week, Bitcoin was on an uptrend and had crossed the $22,000 level with the U.S. Feds saying that the recessional concern is exaggerated. However, BTC dropped below $21K through the weekend. On the 4-hourly time frame, the BTC chart has broken out of the triangle pattern. However, the trend has dropped marginally and it is retesting the pattern. The daily RSI that had earlier surged to 50, dropped to the 40 level in the last couple of days with extremely low trading volumes in the same period. The next key support for Bitcoin is at $14,000,” analysts at WazirX Trade Desk shared in a note.
“Ethereum has been closing in Red for the last 3 to 4 days after it had begun an upsurge last week. ETH against Bitcoin has lost marginally in the last couple of days as Bitcoin’s dominance index crossed the 44% level. The weekly chart for ETH-BTC continues to traverse within an ascending channel pattern, trading at the support levels. The next key support for ETH-BTC is expected at 0.046 level and next resistance is expected at 0.076,” they added.
