Market Outlook #182 – An Altcoin Dealer’s Weblog


Market Outlook #182 (eleventh July 2022)

Hey, and welcome to the 182nd instalment of my Market Outlook.

On this week’s submit, I will likely be masking Bitcoin, Ethereum, XRP, Cardano, Chainlink, Algorand, Synthetix, Oasis Community and dYdX.

As ever, if in case you have any requests for subsequent Monday’s Outlook, do let me know.



Each day:


Value: $20,448

Market Cap: $390.377bn

Ideas: If we start by taking a look at BTC/USD, we will see from the weekly that value depraved above the prior weekly excessive, via resistance round $21,900 into the 200wMA at ~$22,500 and rejected, closing down at $20,850. While this rejection simply reaffirms that the 200wMA is powerful resistance at current, it simply reaffirms that, following a serious capitulation occasion, we are actually range-bound, with that 200wMA appearing as vary resistance, and vary assist coming in round $19k at current. If we’re capable of kind a higher-low this week above that $19k degree and begin pushing again up above $21.9k, I feel it turns into extra possible that we see that 200wMA reclaim and value then push greater to fill a part of the hole into $25.4k, as untested prior assist. Nonetheless, while that $21.9k-22.5k zone is appearing as resistance, it’s more likely to be chop metropolis for a short while longer. The bearish situation right here turns into obvious if we shut the weekly beneath that $19k vary assist, at which level it appears inevitable to me that the $17.6k low will get taken out and we both print a swing-failure into that low if there’s demand, or we make one other leg decrease in the direction of main assist round $14k.

Turning to the every day, I’ve marked out the 2 quick time period trajectories exterior of simply persevering with to cut between assist and resistance this week, the place if we shut the every day up above $21.9k I would really like to check out lengthy setups for a squeeze into $25k, and conversely if lose the prior all-time excessive at $19.8k as soon as once more, I wish to see that retested from beneath as reclaimed resistance, value break decrease and shut beneath $19k after which search for shorts into $17.6k, adopted by $16.1k. Very simple with this construction.

Value: $1146.17 (0.05592 BTC)

Market Cap: $139.005bn

Ideas: If we start by taking a look at ETH/USD, from the weekly we will see an analogous sample to BTC/USD, with value rejecting the 200wMA reclaim, having depraved above it into resistance at $1290 after which closed again beneath it round $1214. As such, the identical applies as marked out above: if we see value maintain above that higher-low at $995 this week and mark out one other higher-low, we’re printing some form of ascending triangle into that $1290 resistance and it turns into extra possible that we see a 200wMA reclaim, adopted by a squeeze into untested prior cycle highs at $1416 as resistance, the place if that ranges offers manner (huge if, to be trustworthy) then we are going to see one other 20% rally into the large $1700 degree that preceded this collapse. If, nevertheless, value breaks via $995 and closes the weekly beneath, I feel we take out the $880 swing-low into that assist zone above the 2021 open at $737. That vary between $737 and $830 ought to present some demand, the place we may see a wick into demand adopted by a swing-failure of $880 to mark out the beginnings of a mid-term backside. If, nevertheless, we shut beneath $880 and the 2021 open fails to offer adequate demand, there’s actually no assist beneath it again into $550. Turning to the every day, as we will see, that vary resistance at $1290 is capping value properly however we do have that higher-low formation which is beginning to print that ascending triangle sample – that’s the reason that $995 degree is now key, as if that degree breaks we return to bearish market construction and this has all simply been consolidation prior to a different leg decrease.

Turning to ETH/BTC, we’re nonetheless simply consolidating proper across the Might lows having damaged beneath that main vary assist and reclaimed it just a few weeks in the past, with minor assist at 0.0594 now appearing as resistance. Break and shut above that degree and issues begin to look extra bullish, and we may see the pair squeeze again in the direction of that mid-range at 0.0687. If, nevertheless, 0.0594 continues to cap value and we break again beneath 0.054, I feel the reclaim of vary assist has failed and we make our manner down in the direction of the 200wMA at 0.042 over the approaching months. If we have a look at the every day, we will see that value is sitting proper on native trendline assist at current simply above that Might low, so there’s loads of confluence for assist right here – if it fails and we shut the every day beneath 0.0536, I feel the momentum has been misplaced and construction returns to bearish, therefore the chance of 0.0462 adopted by 0.042.

Each day:


Value: $0.325 (1587 satoshis)

Market Cap: $15.625bn

Ideas: Starting with XRP/USD, we will see from the weekly that value continues to current bearish market construction with assist across the 360wMA turning into resistance as value broke decrease a few weeks in the past, with the pair now consolidating proper round prior resistance at $0.33. We noticed value wick briefly beneath it however we are actually in a consolidating vary with $0.33 appearing as that assist and the 360wMA appearing as vary resistance at $0.38. If we begin to flatten out proper round right here, I feel it turns into extra possible that we’re seeing a backside formation, however for now construction continues to be bearish on the weekly and any shut beneath $0.29 and I feel we drop into that $0.24 degree. Trying on the every day, prior assist at $0.37 turned resistance a few weeks in the past and continues to cap value, so bulls wish to see that degree reclaimed as assist as the primary signal of a reversal, the place an in depth again above $0.40 turns market construction bullish and you could possibly look to purchase a dip anticipating a squeeze into the following resistance degree at $0.51. For shorts, ready for a every day shut beneath $0.29 after which trying to play that vary into $0.24 is smart to me.

Turning to XRP/BTC, I’ve marked out the overall development since April 2021 and as we will see, nothing has modified with the bounce off assist as 1250 satoshis – at the very least not as of but. For now, construction on the weekly continues to be bearish, with the wick into resistance at 1900 satoshis at present appearing as a lower-high, with value now transferring again beneath assist turned resistance at 1650. If that 1650 degree acts as resistance once more this week, little question we return to 1380 to retest that degree as assist, and if it holds and value begins to consolidate above it, then we will talk about a backside formation, however for now the development is pointing decrease and I might be in search of confluence throughout pairs to quick if that 1250 degree offers manner, as a result of there’s little or no main assist all the way in which into the total rally unwind at 730 satoshis. If we drop into the every day, we will see that the 200dMA and 360dMA proceed to cap value, so for anybody anticipating a sustained reversal, it’s possible clever to attend till these MAs start to assist value once more versus cap it.

Value: $0.45 (2215 satoshis)

Market Cap: $15.391bn

Ideas: If we start by taking a look at ADA/USD, we will see on the weekly that value has begun to flatten out considerably proper round that $0.42 degree, with the 200wMA now appearing as resistance and weekly ranges starting to tighten up. Whether or not that contraction of the vary goes to precede enlargement to the draw back or evolve right into a longer-term re-accumulation vary, I don’t know as of but, but when we break and shut beneath $0.42, the reply is apparent, with the following main assist down at $0.17-0.20 following that breakdown, the place I might search for shorts once more inside that vary. If as an alternative we proceed to carry above $0.42 and value stays flat and boring as it’s at current over the approaching weeks, we could be bottoming out and we may both look to purchase that vary with a transparent invalidation on an in depth beneath $0.42, or await weekly construction to show bullish subsequently earlier than shopping for, which might in all chance be months away nonetheless.

Turning to ADA/BTC, we did see a robust bounce off the 200wMA over the previous few weeks, resulting in a considerably weak breakout above trendline resistance, with value nonetheless capped by reclaimed resistance at 2530 satoshis and thus nonetheless trying like a lower-high beneath 2717. If this can be a fake-out above the trendline into resistance, we must always see value break again beneath the trendline sharpish and transfer again into that 200wMA at 1675 satoshis. If it’s a respectable breakout, we must always see 2530 reclaimed as assist, and once we shut above 2717 we have now weekly construction turning bullish of a serious assist degree, which is one thing we’d wish to be shopping for. Given how the remainder of the market continues to look, I’d be shocked if we see ADA change into an outlier and start some main reversal proper now, but it surely’s one thing to be cautious of based mostly on this construction. If we do break decrease, the 2 trajectories are just like the BTC pair, the place any protracted consolidated above that 200wMA begins to appear to be a re-accumulation vary with a really clear invalidation degree, and any break and shut beneath 1500 satoshis opens up important draw back, with solely minor assist at 1125 satoshis, adopted by higher assist at 950 and main assist round 710 satoshis. That may be a *lot* of potential draw back if the 200wMA offers manner, so once more one thing to pay attention to.

Value: $6.30 (30,710 satoshis)

Market Cap: $2.94bn

Ideas: Starting with LINK/USD, we will see from the weekly that value continues to point out bearish weekly construction however is at current holding above assist at $5.30, with a lower-high forming at $7.26 a few weeks in the past. If we see this lower-high result in one other push into that $5.30 space, I don’t count on it to outlive a 3rd check, and we’re more likely to wick at the very least 10% decrease into prior vary resistance at $4.85, the place, if that degree offers manner, there isn’t a assist till $3.40. Break beneath that and the following main degree of assist is down at $1.56, so we will see how pivotal this $4.85-$5.30 zone is at current. If value begins to flatten out right here above assist, we will – very like the opposite large-caps – start desirous about a backside and the way we’d allocate, with a really clear invalidation on a weekly shut beneath $4.85. At current, neither momentum indicator on the weekly is suggesting a backside is in. If we drop into the every day, we will see that, although uneven, construction is bearish with the push greater into $9 swiftly rejected, resulting in a resistance reclaim at $7.25 which continues to cap value, with minor assist at present holding round $6.16. Lose this degree this week and I feel we retest that assist zone beneath, the place the response will likely be vital.

Turning to LINK/BTC, we have now pushed off minor assist at 22k satoshis proper into prior assist turned resistance at 33k, the place value rejected a few weeks in the past and is now dropping off, trying like a lower-high has shaped and that the development is now to proceed to the draw back. If, regardless of this, bulls are capable of step in early right here, forming a higher-low after which breaking via that main resistance cluster round 33k, we might wish to first see consolidation above that degree as reclaimed assist after which purchase a trendline/200wMA breakout and journey it greater. That’s the least possible situation in my thoughts. Extra possible is that this lower-high results in a retest of 22k satoshis as assist, the place value might then flatten out if the underside is in a kind a brand new vary over the approaching weeks and months, or value continues the downtrend. In that latter situation, we wish to see a weekly lose beneath 22k satoshis, which can open up draw back firstly into 16k satoshis after which possible into the main assist cluster at prior resistance ~10k satoshis, the place – if we get it – I might be eager to construct a long-term place.

Value: $0.30 (1480 satoshis)

Market Cap: $2.116bn

Ideas: Starting with ALGO/USD, we will see on the weekly that we’re at present sitting on a 90% drawdown from the 2021 highs, with value capped by trendline resistance however starting to flatten out above historic assist at $0.30, with weekly ranges contracting round right here over the previous few weeks. If this vary contraction result in a breakdown and shut beneath $0.30, I feel we see one other leg decrease observe all the way in which into main historic assist at $0.16, which might be a 94.5% drawdown from the excessive, with it being the assist degree that preceded all the bull market, aside from the Covid crash that introduced an all-time low into $0.093 however was swiftly reclaimed. If we do get down there, I will likely be eager to become involved, with invalidation on new all-time lows and trying to maintain for 18 months in all chance. If we have a look at the every day, we will see how construction continues to be bearish at current, with prior assist at $0.34 appearing as resistance. If we shut the every day beneath $0.29 right here, I feel we start that descent decrease and proceed in the identical method we have now been in the direction of $0.16; if, nevertheless, value begins to flatten out right here and maintain above assist, I might wish to see that vary final via Q3 after which look to purchase a structural shift above $0.34, with invalidation then being an in depth beneath the assist into $0.26-0.27.

Turning to ALGO/BTC, we will see that regardless of the bounce from 1190 into assist turned resistance at 1560 satoshis, value continues to print bearish weekly construction with the development pointing decrease, and if this lower-high sticks, I might count on to see value return in the direction of assist at 1075 satoshis over the following couple of weeks, which is the ultimate main assist above the all-time excessive at 700. As such, if we do begin to flatten out (are you able to sense a prevailing theme right here?) above that key degree, that might be prime for getting in my view, as a result of the invalidation is a brand new all-time low and we’d be consolidating on historic assist. Nothing a lot else so as to add right here.

Value: $2.35 (11,490 satoshis)

Market Cap: $269.956mn

Ideas: Trying firstly at SNX/USD, we will see from the weekly that the pair has skilled a 95% drawdown for the reason that March 2021 all-time excessive, with value persevering with to print weekly bearish construction, with the rally from two weeks in the past into prior assist turned resistance at $3.54 rejecting and the pair now transferring again beneath assist at $2.54. From right here, it’s possible we return to retest the swing-low at prior resistance turned assist ~$1.59, the place, if the pair can maintain above and start to kind a variety, it’s going to start to appear to be a backside formation, notably within the context of SNX having topped out fairly so early within the cycle. I might then be trying to DCA right into a place as near $1.59 as attainable and lower on a weekly shut beneath it, with the following main degree of assist down at $0.77, which suggests a 97% drawdown from the all-time excessive and could be a really opportune entry if we get it. Momentum indicators on the weekly are additionally starting to point out declining momentum on the strikes decrease, which is vital.

Turning to SNX/BTC, we will see that value is now largely range-bound between the 200wMA as resistance and assist at prior resistance ~9.7k satoshis. This vary has now been in play for about 224 days, with some price-action occurring above and beneath the vary however the pair largely staying inside it throughout that point. WE additionally noticed quite a lot of spot quantity are available over the previous couple of weeks, suggesting potential re-accumulation inside this vary. As such,  we wish to see that vary assist proceed to be protected and might look to allocate as near it as attainable, with invalidation on an in depth beneath 8k satoshis, the place we might then look to chop and re-allocate on a 9.7k reclaim or down on the authentic accumulation space round 4-6k satoshis. On the every day the 360dMA continues to be capping value however each it and the 200dMA are lastly beginning to flatten out too, so if we proceed to see this vary maintain and each value and key MAs flatten out with it, that’s what I wish to be shopping for. Boring is nice.

Value: $0.049 (240 satoshis)

Market Cap: $247.187mn

Ideas: If we glance firstly at ROSE/USD, we will see that it has skilled a 92% drawdown from the all-time excessive and has now returned to the unique accumulation vary that preceded its bull cycle, with value now very a lot tightly consolidating above the all-time lows at $0.029. If we proceed to see this price-action, that is what I wish to be shopping for, with invalidation on new lows and re-allocation on a reclaim. If this can be a re-accumulation vary, it’s possible we are going to see this dampened volatility for a lot of many weeks earlier than any indicators of reversal, so there isn’t a have to rush. However this does certainly look promising.

Turning to ROSE/BTC, the image is basically the identical, with the vary that preceded the bull cycle holding assist at 150 satoshis for 283 days earlier than rallying off in the direction of all-time highs. The present vary between assist at 200 satoshis and resistance at 285 has been in play for 60 days, for context. I wish to see that all-time low at 100 satoshis proceed to be protected and value re-accumulate inside this vary all through Q3, DCA-ing right into a place inside that vary and trying to maintain for the following cycle.

Each day:


Value: $1.85 (9002 satoshis)

Market Cap: $120.975mn

Ideas: On condition that dYdX has solely been buying and selling since September, each pairs look similar, so I’ll give attention to the Greenback pair right here.

Taking a look at DYDX/USD, we will see that value rallied off preliminary assist at $2.97 into an all-time excessive two weeks later at $29, however then started the present bear market and value has since bled out 96.5% from the excessive into an all-time low at $0.99. Since that low shaped in mid-June, value has rallied off it to reclaim assist at $1.35 and is at present capped by resistance at $2.37. While this construction could be very good for a possible backside, notably within the context of the drawdown, I might wish to see that all-time low now protected laborious and value consolidate in a good vary above $1.35 for a while to get able. One different flip off for me right here can also be the low float, with solely 7% of max provide in circulation, so the absolutely diluted market cap is large and I would want to do much more analysis on unlock schedules / token emissions and many others. earlier than getting concerned. However on a strictly price-action viewpoint, that is trying bottom-ish at current however we wish to see $1.35 now act as sturdy assist, in any other case it’s extra time goblin-town for dYdX holders.

And that concludes this week’s Market Outlook.

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