Overall market technicals

BTC: Bearish momentum continues

  • After a volatile two weeks, BTC looked to be showing early signs of a recovery after forming a short term uptrend making a series of higher highs and lows.
  • Taking a closer look, BTC formed a rising wedge, as of the 18th of May BTC broke the wedge, indicating that the bears still had control.
  • The rising wedge can be confirmed by the hidden bearish divergence seen in volumes: as price was steadily rising, volume can be seen decreasing.
  • BTC found support of a previous day's lows and saw a bounce to the previous highs of the wedge, which also coincides with the golden pocket fib ratio.
  • Currently, BTC is trading at previous highs of the rising wedge and has somewhat formed a range between $28,650 & $30,750. Right now, with the overall market structure still appearing bearish, a move above previous highs ($32,500) would help reestablish bullish momentum.
  • The BTC fear & greed index is currently at ‘Extreme fear’ highlighting the uncertainty around crypto at the moment. With the events that have unfolded recently, volatility still remains high.


  • VET continues to show bearish market structure on the higher timeframe, with continuous downtrending movements since the start of November.
  • As selling pressure thrived last week, VET broke through key weekly support ($0.044), continuing to trade downwards until reaching 2020 resistance now turned support ($0.022).
  • Since then, VET has seen somewhat of a relief bounce and is now trading between the middle of its newly formed channel. It appears to have formed a smaller, tighter range within the greater range whilst it waits for BTC’s next anticipated move.


  • GALA is another coin that has been trading in a long-term downtrend. Since the start of November, it has been highly correlated with BTC
  • Since reaching an ATH back in November, GALA is down over 94% and is now trading just above weekly support from last year ($0.075).
  • As of now, GALA has formed what looks to be a descending triangle on the H4 chart with the top forming between the golden pocket ratio and the bottom as the 2021 weekly support.
