The BTCC Weekly Shot – Bringing you a weekly view!

From 03rd August, 2020 to 09th August, 2020

During the week ended August 02, 2020 we saw a great surge in the Crypto-World where the market capitalization rose from ~$300 billion to a high of nearly $364 billion and currently remains around $338 billion. Excluding Bitcoin, the market capitalization rose from $117 billion last week to $142 billion during the week.

Below is the snapshot of the Market Capitalization of the Crypto-world:

Looking at the current situation, during the week it is likely that Bitcoin and Ethereum are going to retrace their recent bullish move and consolidate before moving back for a newer and stronger move ahead.

Let’s speak of the Bitcoin’s possible move ahead:

Looking at the chart above (figure-3) it can be reasonably said that Bitcoin is likely to retrace its move into the previous breakout point which is between $9,900 to $10,300 where it will have a strong demand from the buyers. Similarly, the Bitcoin future will move pegged to the underlying Bitcoin prices and should move into 0.1% to 0.5% of the price differential.

Understanding the chart above, traders looking to take a trade may opt for taking a long position in the range of $9,900-$10,300 range with stop placed at $9,670 and target $12,400 as the next Bitcoin move and its futures.

The confidence level for this trade is 60% and according to me the risk to reward ratio for this trade remains ideal (with 1:4 ratio for risk: reward).

Similarly, an Ethereum price chart has been prepared:

Looking at the chart, it can be reasonably said that Ethereum just like the Bitcoin is likely to retrace its latest move in the range of $290-330 which would act as a strong demand zone for the coin. Similar to the price movement of the underlying asset, the Ethereum; the Ethereum future contracts are likely to stay in consolidation and retracement as well.

In my opinion, with stop of $278, the next move for Ethereum is going to be $540!
