Weekly BTC-USD(31st January)

After the continuous declines, crypto markets took a breather last week and closed the week with ~1% gains. BTC also bounced back after making a recent low of $32,933 and closed the week with 4.46% gains. At the time of writing, BTC is trading slightly below $37,000.

BTC formed a bullish Hammer candlestick pattern on the weekly TF, which depicts that we can expect a pullback to the higher side in the coming days, this analysis also coincides by the fact that the Bitcoin balance on exchanges has reached 2.55 million, which indicates that the majority of traders on the markets are leaving exchanges and preferring long-term holding in cold or hot wallets.

On the smaller TF’s, BTC is trading in a Descending channel formation and is still making lower lows. On the downside, the immediate support is present at $35,500, if bears manages to break this level again, further downswing rally can be expected till the level of $32,800 followed by the next major support at $31,000.

On the higher side, BTC is facing stiff resistance from the range of $38,000 to $38,500, if we witness a weekly closing above this level, we can pullback rally to continue till the first level of $40,500 followed by the next level at $43,500.

BTC is witnessing a strong buying strength from its 100-WEMA which is placed at $35,625, it has tried to breach this level twice but failed to close below that level. Weekly RSI is making lower lows and there is no divergence with the price at the moment, which suggests that there is no strong buying momentum in the market and therefore we advise traders to avoid taking fresh leverage positions.
