Weekly Trade Report: The Rally Continues

08 January 2021 | ZebPay Trade-Desk

Bitcoin (BTC) Technical Analysis and Chart:

At the time of writing, Bitcoin is trading around $37,200 reflecting a profit of 2.4% approximately over the period of 24-hours.

BTC breached $40,000 levels this week, breaching the long held resistance, finally proving the believers right. Currently trades at levels never seen before and drawing in more flows. 

On the technical front, the picture is bullish, MACD levels are very much in the green, ADX is confirming the trend. BTC is trending upwards in a loudspeaker pattern as shown in the chart. The high volumes also support the trend mentioned above, though one must remain cautious as BTC is trading at all time high levels, and correction is anticipated.

As the institutional flows keep getting better and better, the picture over the long term is very positive, tactically $32,000 will act as good support, and dips accumulation remains an attractive strategy.

Ethereum (ETH) Technical Analysis and Chart:

At the time of writing, Ethereum is trading around $1186.5 reflecting a loss of 3.5% approximately over the period of 24-hours.

Just like BTC, ETH has surpassed its long held resistance levels, enjoying the inflows as well. Investment world is paying more attention to ETH along with BTC, due it’s steep upward rally.

The technical front picture is very positive with MACD is in the positive territory and the prices still trades above the bullish channel. The Bullish channel acts as support in the near term. The ADX is also confirming the trend. After breaking resistance, it significantly shot upwards. We can see the trend is supported by a good number of volumes though it was a christmas week.  Seeing the current rally we remain bullish on ETH.

Good institutional flows are seen in ETH as well, looking at $1400 levels as the next stop in the rally we currently see.

Basic Attention Token (BAT) Technical Analysis and Chart:

At the time of writing, BAT is trading around $0.2601 reflecting a profit of about 1.4% approximately over the period of 24-hours.

Price has successfully exited the bearish trend it formed last month, rallying last week to trade close to the resistance level of $0.260.

On the technical front picture getting less positive as BAT is trading in a broad range as shown in the chart with MACD line crossing below the signal line  on the daily chart, with a mild rally. BAT had a range bound run overall for the month, it breaches resistance of 0.288 this month, it can show an upward move.

With that said we tilt to the bullish side once the resistance breaches. Analysis will be negated if price closes above the recent high.

USDT-INR Technical Analysis and Chart: 

At the time of writing, USDT-INR  is  trading around 78.20 reflecting a profit of about 1.80% approximately over the period of 24-hours.

USDT-INR makes up for an interesting pair as USDT is a stable coin, hence the pair has the property of both forex and crypto. 

On the technical front, USDT is showing a bearish trend after touching the levels of $80.  MACD has moved to bearish levels. But as we point out in our previous reports it’s important to see what’s happening with premium, the pair had with regards to USD-INR.

This week, the premium finally contracted, and is currently at around 4.5%. We believe USDT being a stable coin is an easy way to gain exposure to USD. On the USD front there is a lot of news battering USD priced in, be it vaccination in the UK or USA, as well as the ongoing barrage in the US presidential candidate election, with an official say on Biden’s win.

With USD-INR pairs being largely stable with a lot of USD negative news already priced and the new year already set in, we stick to our bearish bias tactically for the pair.
