Crypto Technical Analysis Report | 09th-February-2024


BTC surged above $45,000, marking its first ascent to this level since January 12th, coinciding with the introduction of spot ETFs. The robust performance of U.S. stock markets since mid-October has lent support to assets like Bitcoin and other crypto assets. Wall Street’s major stock indices have demonstrated significant gains in recent days, with the S&P reaching a new record high of 4,995 on Wednesday, February 7th. The broader crypto market has also witnessed a resurgence, with the total market capitalisation adding $60 billion in just one day. Following a period of relative stagnation, most Altcoins have turned bullish. Ethereum, the leading altcoin, has surged by 2%, propelling its price above $2,400. Similarly, Binance Token has experienced a 4% daily increase, reaching $315. Among the larger-cap altcoins, Solana and Cardano have seen notable gains. Solana has surged by 6%, surpassing the $100 mark, while Cardano has experienced a remarkable 9% increase, trading above $0.5. These positive movements across various crypto assets underscore renewed investor optimism and appetite for digital assets.

Bitcoin surged past the $45,000 mark on February 8th, marking its highest price level since January 12th and showcasing a notable 6% rally over a span of just two days. This upswing coincided with the S&P 500 index hitting a record high on February 7th, suggesting that investors were seeking refuge from inflationary pressures. In addition to the concurrent rise in both crypto and traditional stock markets, data from Bitcoin derivatives markets indicated further potential for bullish momentum. Specifically, BTC futures premium soared to its highest level in three weeks on February 8th, surpassing the 10% threshold typically associated with bullish sentiment. Notably, this metric displayed no signs of excessive optimism, providing a favourable backdrop for Bitcoin to maintain its newfound support at the $45,000 level. However, investors remained cautious in the wake of Bitcoin’s price action following the approval of the spot Bitcoin exchange-traded fund (ETF) on January 10th. Despite the initial euphoria that propelled Bitcoin to heights near $49,000, a subsequent 15.3% correction ensued, driving the price down to $41,500 in less than two days. This heightened volatility led to the forceful liquidation of approximately $150 million worth of long futures contracts, prompting bulls to proceed with caution amidst uncertain market conditions.

Ethereum has displayed a bullish bounce at a crucial support level, suggesting the potential for further price appreciation. This rebound from significant Fibonacci support indicates renewed buying interest, hinting at a possible upward trajectory for Ethereum’s price in the near term. Adding to this optimism, Ethereum’s core developers recently announced plans to roll out the much-anticipated Dencun upgrade around March 13th. This upgrade is expected to introduce a suite of tools aimed at enhancing the speed and affordability of Ethereum transactions. Of particular note is the implementation of proto-danksharding, which promises to further optimise layer-2 networks, making them even more efficient and cost-effective. Developers envision that with the full implementation of danksharding, the Ethereum ecosystem will be capable of handling over 100,000 transactions per second at minimal cost. This advancement holds the potential to significantly enhance Ethereum’s scalability and usability, further bolstering its appeal to users and investors alike.

The United States government is grappling with an unprecedented level of debt, currently standing at a staggering $34.2 trillion, marking a historic high. Federal Reserve Chair Jerome Powell recently acknowledged the long-term challenges posed by this “unsustainable fiscal path” in a February 4th interview. Projections from the Congressional Budget Office paint a concerning picture, forecasting a nearly 66% surge in the U.S. budget deficit over the next decade, primarily driven by escalating debt-servicing expenses. Further exacerbating the situation, Congress’s independent fiscal watchdog has sounded alarms, predicting that the nation’s total public debt is on track to exceed 100% of the gross domestic product by 2025. This looming milestone raises significant concerns regarding the U.S. dollar’s status as the global reserve currency and the demand for U.S. Treasurys.
