Bitcoin and Ethereum have faced substantial price drops over the last nine days. While investors are showing signs of fear, one indicator suggests that a significant rebound is underway.
Lower Caps Bounce Back
Volatility has struck back the cryptocurrency market, sending many investors into a state of “fear” for the first time since September.
Bitcoin crashed below $60,000 Wednesday, helping cause more than $600 million worth of long position liquidations over the past four days. The downswing spilled across the entire cryptocurrency market and generated significant losses. Still, many lower cap assets shrugged off the uncertainty.
Several Metaverse tokens, including Decentraland’s MANA, Enjin Coin’s ENJ, and The Sandbox’s SAND, have fully recovered from the recent pullback and are showing bullish momentum. Meanwhile, Elrond’s EGLD and Avalanche’s AVAX recently reached new all-time highs.
While Bitcoin and Ethereum have been in recline this week, lower cap assets are in the spotlight. Nonetheless, a technical indicator flashing a buy signal for the two leading cryptoassets suggests that they could soon catch up with the rest of the market. The bullish formation anticipates a swift rebound that could put the bears under pressure.
Bitcoin, Ethereum Present Buy Signal
The Tom Demark (TD) Sequential indicator has presented a buy signal on both Bitcoin’s and Ethereum’s 12-hour charts. The bullish pattern came after both cryptocurrencies saw their market valuation drop by more than 18% since Nov. 10. Now, the TD forecasts that BTC and ETH could enter a one to four 12-hour candlestick upswing before the downtrend resumes.
A spike in buying pressure that pushes Bitcoin above $58,500 could send prices to the 100-twelve-hour moving average at $60,000. A sustained 12-hour candlestick close above resistance level could extend the rebound toward the 50-twelve-hour moving average at $62,300.
Likewise, Ethereum needs to overcome the $4,300 resistance level to advance toward the 50-twelve-hour moving average at $4,500. If if it overcomes this hurdle, ETH could advance to $4,653.
It is worth noting that Bitcoin and Ethereum must hold above their respective swing lows to avoid further losses. If BTC breaks below $55,600 and ETH loses $3,960 as support, the downtrend could be primed to resume. Bitcoin could fall to $52,000, while Ethereum could drop to $3,700.
