Weekly Trade Summary Report: Hitting the Wall


11 December 2020 | ZebPay Trade-Desk

Crypto seems to have hit a brick wall recently and couldn’t breach the area around previous all time highs. The situation is still positive and markets still trade above key resistance levels, alt coins have takens a step back as well.  Let’s look at what we have in store for a trade set-up. 

Bitcoin (BTC) Technical Analysis and Chart:

At the time of writing, Bitcoin is trading around $17,795 reflecting a loss of 2.08% approximately over the period of 24-hours.

As we see in the chart above, BTC has failed from around $20,000 levels.Price seems to be stabilizing around these levels, but further failure to breach the resistance may become a cause for concern.

On the technical front, the picture is a bit mixed, MACD levels and histogram are both very much in the green, ADX is confirming the trend. RSI is an indicator that we have emphasised recently, even after mild correction remains very high. 

Mainstream adoption and institutional flows remain strong with microstrategy allocating $50 million more to BTC. With said we tilt on the bearish side in near term on BTC, with price looking to touch early $17,000 in near term. Analysis will be negated if RSI moves back to neutral levels

Ethereum (ETH) Technical Analysis and Chart:

At the time of writing, Ethereum is trading around $545.9 reflecting a loss of 4.01% approximately over the period of 24-hours.

As we in the chart price failed to breach $ 620 levels and currently trades down around $540 levels. ETH followed BTC down last week, after failing to breach the resistance.

The technical front picture is very positive with MACD and histogram in the positive territory with RSI moving closer to the neutral, price still trades close to the bullish channel. Although recent fail is a cause of concern 

We remain bullish on ETH, if the price is able to break $580 levels next levels we are looking at $640. The analysis will be negated if prices break below the bullish channel. 

Basic Attention Token (BAT) Technical Analysis and Chart:

At the time of writing, BAT is trading around $0.2020 reflecting a loss of about 6.72% approximately over the period of 24-hours.

As in the chart after successfully exiting the bearish channel, forming the bullish trend, price breached the bullish trend from below.

On the technical front picture getting less positive with MACD line crossing below the signal line and despite a strong sell off,  RSI staying close to neutral levels signalling further legs in the sell off.

With that said we tilt to the bearish side on the BAT looking at $0.18 levels, 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 78.98 reflecting a loss of about 0.07% 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, MACD is very positive,, RSI has crossed the overbought levels and ADX has confirmed the trend. 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.

Last week, the premium has further expanded, and is currently at around 6.5%. We believe USDT being a stable coin is an easy way to gain exposure to USD. On the USD front there is a 

Barrage of news battering USD, be it vaccine approval in the UK or potential vaccination in the USA as early as next week. 

With USD-INR pair being largely stable with USD under pressure and  expensive premium we are  bearish on the USDT-INR pair with premium looking to correct at 4.5% levels in the near term.
