After multiple tries, Bitcoin has finally conquered the $20,000 mark. Is it safe to trade the giants?
After a strong rally, Bitcoin has managed to reclaim the $20,000 level. It came after a long sideways consolidation
that tested the patience of many traders.
Is this the breakout we have all been waiting for? At the moment, the trend seems perfect. Therefore, in this week's analysis, we will observe what coins have the potential to outperform the market.
In the chart above, the sideways consolidation
that started in November is clearly visible. After continuously failing to break above the resistance level
in December, BTC finally succeeded last week. This led to a strong price move in the upward direction, and the price went above $20,000 in no time.
After a strong trend, it looks like BTC will stay in the $20,500-$21,800 range for a while before the next move. Traders can expect some sideways movement (movement within the range) for the next few days. It is crucial for BTC to hold the support at $19,850 for a continuation of the uptrend.
Once the final resistance
at $21,800 is broken, expect the the next resistance to be at $24,400.

after a strong rally. If the momentum is maintained, traders can expect the price to break the supply zone (resistance) at $1,650 soon. Once the supply zone is broken, a clear path to $1,811 can be seen.
This view is only valid if the price is able to break the supply zone/resistance at $1,650.

FTM seems to be retesting the support at $0.29 after a very strong rally in the past few weeks. If this retest is successful, we may see a strong price move up to $0.36 in the coming week.

under the resistance
at $19. Traders should note that if the price falls below $14, AVAX may find it difficult to go up again in the short term. A move to $20 can be expected once the consolidation is over.
