Market Outlook #245 – An Altcoin Dealer’s Weblog


Market Outlook #245 (thirteenth November 2023)

Good day, and welcome to the 245th instalment of my Market Outlook.

On this week’s put up, I shall be protecting Bitcoin, Ethereum, Chainlink, Polkadot, ImmutableX, Perpetual Protocol, DIA, Saito and Cellframe.

As ever, in case you have any requests for subsequent week, let me know.

Bitcoin:

Weekly:

btcusdweekly

Every day:

btcusddaily

Worth: $36,982

Market Cap: $721.671bn

Ideas: If we start by taking a look at BTC/USD on the weekly chart, we will see that value rallied once more final week off the weekly open, on greater quantity than the earlier week, pushing by means of the 38.2% fib retracement of the bear market at $36k into $37.1k, poking marginally above that however closing on the stage. We see no indicators nonetheless of momentum exhaustion on this timeframe, and given the shut I’m leaning in direction of continuation of this squeeze greater to fill in the remainder of the hole into $39.6k this week. There may be, after all, additionally the chance that a number of ETFs are permitted this week (although a slim likelihood), and in that case it’s possible we push all the best way into the 50% fib retracement and reclaimed resistance at $42k. Both manner, there may be nothing on the weekly timeframe that means a longer-term high is in, and if we do dip early this week I might count on it to be shallow.

Nonetheless, if we drop into the each day, I’ve marked out two doable trajectories I’m contemplating from right here. The primary is as above: we get a shallow pull-back in direction of resistance from final week at $36k, discover assist and proceed greater into the resistance ranges between $39.6k and $42k; the second trajectory is that if this divergence in momentum is validated and we shut again inside $35.2k and switch it into resistance, the place I might then count on the remainder of the lows of that week to be swept into $32.9k and value to then mark out a backside round there. Thrilling instances forward, regardless.


Ethereum:

ETH/USD

Weekly:

ethusdweekly

Every day:

ethusddaily

ETH/BTC

Weekly:

ethbtcweekly

Every day:

ethbtcdaily

Worth: $2110.58 (0.0571 BTC)

Market Cap: $254.658bn

Ideas: If we start by taking a look at ETH/USD, we will see from the weekly that the pair rallied exhausting final week, turning trendline resistance into assist on the weekly open after which pushing into resistance at $2037, wicking above that simply shy of the yearly excessive however closing again marginally above $2037. If this stage now turns assist, I might count on ETH to start out taking part in catch up, with contemporary yearly highs above $2172 lastly opening up the transfer into the 38.2% fib retracement at $2425, which I’ve had marked out for a good whereas. That’s the extent I count on the pair to squeeze into over the following couple of weeks if we will now maintain above $2037. If we shut the weekly again under $2037, I might count on a bit extra of a pull-back in direction of $1850 to mark out a higher-low earlier than one other run at yearly highs. Dropping into the each day, we will see that not like BTC there isn’t any momentum divergence right here, and on this timeframe the pair is discovering assist at $2037 early this week, pushing off that stage again in direction of final week’s excessive. Shut the each day above $2172 and there may be fairly actually no resistance for an additional $250 transfer…

Turning to ETH/BTC, we will see that value depraved into 0.051 final week and located robust assist, bouncing off that stage all the best way into prior assist turned resistance at 0.0577 earlier than rejecting and shutting the week marginally under the 200wMA and the Could 2021 lows at 0.0551. Nonetheless, that was fairly the present of power from bulls off that low and if we see continuation greater this week and value closes above the 200wMA and prior vary assist at 0.0551, in my opinion the cyclical backside is more likely to be in, with value then more likely to push in direction of the trendline resistance. If we drop into the each day, we will see how we now have bullish construction with higher-highs and lows, and early this week value is discovering assist above 0.0551, pushing again into 0.0577 as we communicate. Given how robust the push was final week off the underside, I might count on to see 0.0577 give manner if retested this week, and value to squeeze into 0.0594 earlier than discovering resistance. Bears have to see 0.0577 act as resistance as soon as once more right here, with any shut again under 0.0551 now trying like continuation of the longer-term downtrend. Let’s see how the week performs out.


Chainlink:

LINK/USD

Weekly:

linkusdweekly

Every day:

linkusddaily

LINK/BTC

Weekly:

linkbtcweekly

Every day:

linkbtcdaily

Worth: $15.33 (41,455 satoshis)

Market Cap: $8.495bn

Ideas: If we start by taking a look at LINK/USD, we will see that the pair continued its ascent final week and exhibits little signal of slowing, pushing by means of the 200wMA for the primary time since April 2022 and shutting proper on the 23.6% fib retracement of the bear market at ~$16. While quantity nonetheless seems good and there’s no momentum exhaustion on the upper timeframes but, I might be cautious to leap in proper right here round resistance. If we drop into the each day, once more we will see no indicators of divergence up right here however I might be on the lookout for a pull-back into $13.30 – or near it – earlier than on the lookout for leveraged longs. That additionally aligns with a 200wMA retest, if we get it. Nonetheless, if we don’t get that, we will look to play the squeeze into $21 by shopping for the primary shallow pull-back after a each day shut above $16.60 with invalidation under in the present day’s low.

Turning to LINK/BTC, we will see extra motive why we shouldn’t be fast to leap in with leverage right here if you’re sidelined, because the pair is urgent up towards the 2022 highs and the 200wMA at 45k-47k satoshis. Weekly shut above this could open up one other 15% of upside into the following resistance, however would additionally sign a longer-term reversal and continuation into the 38.2% fib retracement at 76k satoshis, round which there are a number of ranges of resistance. If we briefly take a look at the each day, we will see how there may be some minor divergence up right here however value is discovering assist at current above prior resistance at 40k satoshis. Until we now shut under that, it’s possible we a minimum of retest 45k right here. Break and shut above that stage and clearly issues look much more promising for LINK, with solely air between there at 57k satoshis. Nonetheless, both deviate above 45k and shut again inside it, or simply discover resistance under it on a retest this week and break under 40k and I believe we’re more likely to transfer 15% decrease into 35.4k satoshis. The development, nevertheless, continues to be very a lot pointing up transferring into 2024.


Polkadot:

DOT/USD

Weekly:

dotusdweekly

Every day:

dotusddaily

DOT/BTC

Weekly:

dotbtcweekly

Every day:

dotbtcdaily

Worth: $5.61 (15,156 satoshis)

Market Cap: $7.268bn

Ideas: Starting with DOT/USD, we will see from the weekly that after two years of bear market the pair seems to have bottomed, breaking above 2023’s trendline resistance a few weeks in the past and turning it into assist final week, from which value rallied into the weekly shut at $5.70, reclaiming a number of assist ranges. We at the moment are consolidating between reclaimed assist at $5.34 and resistance at $6, and if we pull again from right here I might be on the lookout for the formation of a higher-low above $4.42. If we don’t pull again right here, I might count on to see any acceptance above $6 result in one other rally into $7.08, the place there may be historic resistance, with a weekly shut above $6 additionally turning construction bullish on this timeframe. Above $7, the cyclical reversal is on and we will take a look at that $10-11 space subsequent.

Turning to DOT/BTC, the pair has been in a downtrend for 910 days, dropping 88% of its worth from the all-time excessive throughout that interval. Worth fell inside touching distance of the all-time low at 11.8k satoshis a couple of weeks in the past and bounced, reversing sharply final week to shut marginally under prior assist at 15k satoshis. We nonetheless have bearish weekly construction and a agency downtrend right here, however momentum is trying extra promising after this rally. Bulls now wish to see a higher-low type above the all-time low and value to then shut again above 17.8k satoshis from there to start trying like a longer-term backside is in. If we drop into the each day, we will see that we’re additionally sat marginally under the 200dMA, which as capped the pair since early 2022 – acceptance above that and turning it into assist can be a promising signal for a sustained reversal, with 25.6k satoshis the following main resistance above that.


ImmutableX:

IMX/USD

Every day:

imxusd

IMX/BTC

Every day:

imxbtc

Worth: $1.22 (3286 satoshis)

Market Cap: $1.516bn

Ideas: As IMX has solely been buying and selling for round 18 months, each pairs look just about similar and so I’ll focus right here on the Greenback pair.

Taking a look at IMX/USD, we will see that value fashioned a backside in September under the $0.52 assist stage, deviating into $0.48 earlier than rallying sharply on excessive quantity into the 200dMA and rejecting. Worth then fashioned the next low in October above $0.52 and has since been rallying continuous, breaking by means of the 200dMA at $0.70 and reclaiming that stage as assist, then persevering with greater so far as assist turned resistance at $1.31, which capped the pair earlier this yr. This led to a pointy rejection and swift pullback into $0.80, which held agency as assist, and the pair has v-reversed again above $1.10 since. We’ve got the makings of some momentum exhaustion up right here as we come into this 2023 resistance zone, however given the sharp reversal off that preliminary rejection, I might count on to see $1.31 give manner on the following try. If that happens and we flip that stage as assist, no matter momentum indicators I believe it’s possible we take out the 2023 excessive at $1.60 and run into $1.80 resistance. Past that, the remainder of IMX’s first bull cycle awaits in 2024…


Perpetual Protocol:

PERP/USD

Weekly:

perpusdweekly

Every day:

perpusddaily

PERP/BTC

Weekly:

perpbtcweekly

Every day:

perpbtcdaily

Worth: $0.70 (1889 satoshis)

Market Cap: $50.764mn

Ideas: Starting with PERP/USD, we will see that value has been held inside this broader vary between all-time lows and resistance at $1.37 for over 500 days, extra lately forming a higher-low above reclaimed assist at $0.51 and pushing into resistance at $0.75. This $0.50-0.75 vary has held for one of the best a part of three months now and given the amount on the impulse candle off the underside I’m now on the lookout for a weekly shut above $0.75 to verify continuation to the highest finish of the vary later this yr. Longer-term, a weekly shut above $1.37 is what we’re taking a look at for the following part of the cycle to start, however for now so long as we’re above $0.50 the pair seems bullish.

Turning to PERP/BTC, we will see that value had fashioned a variety above the all-time low at 1516 satoshis and under prior assist turned resistance at 1942 for months earlier this yr earlier than that top quantity breakout candle in September. The pair then retraced all of that candle again into the all-time low final week, bouncing above it however remaining capped by 1942 satoshis. The primary signal, subsequently, {that a} reversal is underway can be a weekly shut again above 1942. If we see that, I might count on value to push up into 2600 satoshis, retesting that space as resistance – and above that we come into an important stage on the chart to show again into assist at 3600 satoshis. Bullish above that all-time low, after all. Briefly dropping into the each day, we will see that value is now contending with the 200dMA, the trendline and horizontal resistance, so clearing this cluster with some pressure can be promising certainly. Settle for above 1950 and I believe we’re prepared for the following wave.


DIA:

DIA/USD

Weekly:

diausdweekly

Every day:

diausddaily

DIA/BTC

Weekly:

diabtcweekly

Every day:

diabtcdaily

Worth: $0.30 (811 satoshis)

Market Cap: $33.26mn

Ideas: If we start by taking a look at DIA/USD, we will see from the weekly that the pair has been in a downtrend since April 2021 however that the volatility has drastically diminished on the latest strikes decrease, with some momentum exhaustion coming into play. Worth fashioned a double backside on the all-time low at $0.215 in Could and September, marginally sweeping that low earlier than pushing off it to show weekly construction bullish as value closed again above reclaimed assist at $0.26. Since then, the pair has continued to push up, final week closing above $0.296. We at the moment are sat proper under assist turned resistance at $0.33, however that is the final stage of main resistance earlier than an enormous vary opens up into the following areas of resistance up close to $0.50. If we see that weekly shut by means of $0.33, I’ll look to purchase spot on a retest if I can get it and search for $0.49 as a primary goal, adopted by $0.58 and $0.78 as the ultimate goal, given how vital that stage is traditionally. Longer-term, above that stage, I believe we’re within the midst of a bull cycle for DIA and might simply look to purchase pull-backs, however that’s possible months away but.

Turning to DIA/BTC, the pair continues to be capped by trendline resistance from that April 2021 excessive. A few weeks in the past, the pair fashioned a contemporary all-time low at 704 satoshis however now we have clear development exhaustion down right here, and the pair has since reclaimed assist at 788 satoshis which had beforehand held for a number of months. While we may look to purchase spot right here for a cyclical (12-18 month) place with invalidation on a detailed under 704, I would favor to be just a little extra affected person right here and look ahead to the trendline breakout and acceptance above 1000 satoshis for that. DIA has by no means skilled a bull cycle regardless of having traded for 3 years, so that is undoubtedly one to regulate. The cyclical place additionally differs from the short-term commerce outlined within the Greenback pair, so relying in your preferences there are two methods to play this.


Saito:

SAITO/USD

Every day:

saitousd

SAITO/BTC

Every day:

saitobtc

Worth: $0.0085 (23 satoshis)

Market Cap: $18.063mn

Ideas: As each pairs for SAITO look very comparable, I’ll focus right here on the Greenback pair.

Taking a look at SAITO/USD, we will see that value lately fashioned a low at $0.0065 and has rallied off that low above trendline resistance that has capped the pair all yr. While this breakout is promising for bulls, the pair stays under the 200dMA and is now sat round assist turned resistance at $0.0086. This space is especially vital traditionally for SAITO, having additionally been the Could-June 2022 backside and the unique assist stage when buying and selling started, so a robust reclaim of this stage as assist would, in my opinion, make it possible that the underside is in right here. Affirmation of this could be a weekly shut above $0.01. In that state of affairs, I believe the pair pushes up into the 360dMA and prior assist round $0.0125 earlier than discovering any additional resistance after which makes a run for the 2023 excessive at $0.023, starting its subsequent bull cycle. Clearly, if we see the pair reject right here and shut again under that trendline, this has been a deviation / failed breakout and we will count on the underside to be retested on the very least…


Cellframe:

CELL/USD

Weekly:

cellusdweekly

Every day:

cellusddaily

CELL/BTC

Weekly:

cellbtcweekly

Every day:

cellbtcdaily

Worth: $0.225 (610 satoshis)

Market Cap: $6.493mn

Ideas: Starting with CELL/USD, we will see from the weekly that the pair stays capped by trendline resistance from the all-time highs and the earliest buying and selling days, having spent most of its price-history in a downtrend but in addition having consolidated for over 500 days above the all-time lows. Worth has lately turned weekly market construction bullish by closing above $0.185 and is now consolidating under $0.245 as resistance, with any acceptance above this stage opening up one other retest of that trendline overhead, in addition to prior assist at $0.37. I’m very a lot nonetheless in my spot place right here and am on the lookout for a weekly shut above the trendline and above $0.37 to verify that the primary part of CELL’s first bull cycle is starting. Contemporary all-time lows stay my invalidation right here and I’m trying to maintain this for the majority of the cycle.

If we flip to CELL/BTC, we will see that the pair has been flat for the previous 168 days above the all-time low however under prior assist turned resistance at 770 satoshis. Extra essential than that, nevertheless, is the extent above it at 1150 satoshis. That can also be the August 2021 backside and so a weekly shut above 1150 would flip weekly construction bullish and reclaim that historic stage as assist. If you’re on the sidelines on the lookout for an entry, you might look to enter both above that stage or incrementally between right here and there. I’m personally targeted right here on the Greenback pair for my total positioning.

And that concludes this week’s Market Outlook.

I hope you’ve discovered worth within the learn and thanks for supporting my work!
