With the U.S. market indexes hitting a new 52-week low, the overall crypto market is also struggling with Bitcoin trading under $19,000. Is it time to short the giants?
In last week’s analysis, it was observed that Bitcoin had been trapping traders from both sides of the chart and that is exactly what was seen once again on Sunday. This is why the market seems very uncertain at the moment as there is no clear direction.
Earlier this week, Bitcoin had formed a symmetrical triangle and a bullish breakout was seen. However, the breakout was cut short after the fall in the global markets. Bitcoin has now broken the lower supporting trendline and has formed a bearish structure.
It is looking like Bitcoin will now approach the 52-W low at $17,600 like the American indices. Traders shouldn’t expect any bullish scenario until the resistance at $20,500 is flipped. If a close below $18,200 is seen on the 4-hour time frame, expect a sharp fall to $17600.

Since our previous analysis, ETH has been consolidating between the range of $1,420 and $1,280. At the time of writing, it is trading dangerously close to the support at $1,280 and a breakdown does seem impending.
It is very important for the coin to sustain over $1,280 as a clear path to $1,000 can be seen. If there is a close below $1,280 on the 4-hour time frame, expect a rapid drop to $1,000. A short-term relief rally to $1,420 could also be seen if the demand zone is respected.
In our previous analysis, we had anticipated NEAR to approach the support at $3.68. It was unable to sustain the support and tumbled to $3.40.
SOL has been trading in a very tight range and has performed relatively well against the greater market. It also attempted to break the resistance but got rejected by the resistance. The resistance seems to have weakened, which is why a breakout could be seen in the coming weeks.
If the resistance at $34 is broken, expect a strong rally towards the next support zone at $39. However, if the lower range is broken, a sharp fall could be seen towards the next support level at $28.
ADA is still trading close to the 52-week low. Therefore, traders must maintain caution.
If the coin is able to trade above $0.46, expect a strong rally towards the resistance at $0.54.
ADA broke very crucial support on Sunday, and a new 52-week low could be hit very soon. It would be advised for traders to steer clear of ADA at the moment as it is just 5% away from the 52-week low.
FTM is also trading very close to the last standing support at $0.22. Therefore, a breakdown could be seen in the coming week. If a close below $0.22 is seen on the 4-hourly time frame, expect the price to plunge to $0.19
