Sally Ho's Technical Analysis 19 July 2019

Bitcoin

Bitcoin (BTC/USD) managed to erase most of its intraweek losses and continued to appreciate early in today’s Asian session, trading as high as the 10,742.87 area after very strong buying activity started during yesterday’s North American session. Traders lifted the pair from the 9,291.00 level, right around the 50% retracement of the move from 4,702.53 to 13,868.44, and later found support around the 10,367.06 area, representing the 38.2% retracement of the same range. Support around this level allowed BTC/USD to nearly test its 50-bar MA (4-hourly) and 200-bar MA (4-hourly).

Stops were elected above the 10,046.06 area during the pair’s ascent, representing the 23.6% retracement of the move from 13,202.63 to 9,071.00, before additional Stops were triggered above the 10,649.28 level, representing the 38.2% retracement of the same range. If the pair is able to escalate above the aforementioned moving averages, it may test the 100-bar MA (4-hourly), currently indicating around the 11,204.79 area. Additional upside price objectives include the 11,136 and 11,624 areas, followed by the 12,227 level.

Price activity is nearest the 50-bar MA (4-hourly) at 10,779.84 and the 200-bar MA (Hourly) at 10,793.82.

Technical Support is expected around 10,046.06/ 9,532.39/ 9,071.00 with Stops expected below.

Technical Resistance is expected around 11,136.82/ 11,510.44/ 12,227.57 with Stops expected above.

On 4-Hourly chart, SlowK is Bullishly above SlowD while MACD is Bullishly above MACDAverage.

On 60-minute chart, SlowK is Bearishly below SlowD while MACD is Bullishly above MACDAverage.

 

Ethereum

Ethereum (ETH/USD) showed ongoing strength early in today’s Asian session, extending the upward trajectory that propelled the pair higher during yesterday’s North American session. Traders pushed ETH/USD as high as the 227.60 area early in today’s Asian session after strong Bids lifted the pair from the 206.20 area, right around the 76.4% retracement of the move from 157.28 to 364.49. The next upside price objective related to this range is the 236.43 area, followed by the 260.89 level and then the 285.34 level.

Another level that has taken on importance during today’s activity is the 222.55 area, as Bids have emerged there to help propel the price higher. The next upside price objective related to this particular level is the 256.04 area, representing the 38.2% retracement of the move from 80.60 to 364.49. Chartists are also focusing on the 50-bar MA (4-hourly), currently indicating around the 243.36 area. Before it can test this area, however, it must get through some more immediate technical Resistance including the 239.20 area that represents the 38.2% retracement of the move from 318.60 to 190.11.

Price activity is nearest the 50-bar MA (4-hourly) at 243.36 and the 100-bar MA (Hourly) at 217.75.

Technical Support is expected around 206.18/ 183.33/ 165.25 with Stops expected below.

ETH 2.0 Confirmed, Is ETH Prepared To Hit ATH?

ETH 2.0 Confirmed, Is ETH Prepared To Hit ATH?

ETH 2.0's beacon genesis is scheduled to launch on Dec.1, after the ETH 2.0 deposit contracts performing a parabolic gain in the past few days. 

The ETH 2.0 accepted deposit on Nov. 4, but to the worry of many investors, only 106,240 ETH had been deposited by November 20, while the launch of ETH 2.0 required 524,288 ETH. 

As the cut-off date drew close, the deposits spiked and hit the target 9 hours before the deadline. To date, 16,384 validators have made deposits and 583,552 ETH have been staked. Following the breakout, ETH gained over 10% in the past day and rose to as high as $622, its new year-to-date high, while Bitcoin remained stuck in $18K. ETH started off the year with $135, now it has gained nearly 350%.

What Is ETH 2.0?

Ethereum 2.0 is an upgrade aiming to enhance the network's scalability, programmability and security. After its completion, the Ethereum blockchain will fully adopt proof-of-stake(PoS) to secure its network, while ETH 1.0 employs a consensus mechanism known as proof of work (PoW). The whole process is divided into 4 phases and is expected to last for at least 2 years.

As the second largest cryptocurrency by market cap, ETH is infamous for its high transaction fee and constant congestion. This is because ETH 1.0 could only handle around 30 transactions per second. But with the launch of ETH 2.0, up to 100,000 transactions could be processed each second thanks to the shard chain. 

Consider driving a car to the other part of the city and the only way to do so is through a bridge. During rush hours, everyone would need to queue to cross the bridge and you are getting more and more annoyed. You don't know it would be minutes or hours before you arrive home. Suddenly, the bridge splits and extends, and you soon find the long queue before you disappear. The journey that used to take you a few hours now could be made in a dozen minutes.Shard chain works similarly to this way. Sharding is the process of distributing data to reduce the network congestion by creating new chains, AKA shards. 

ETH 2.0 is also more sustainable and could transform the whole ecosystem. The network of ETH 1.0 is highly energy-intensive because it requires all miners to solve complex mathematical puzzles and verify new transactions, and the first miner to solve the block problem will be rewarded with crypto. Instead of working together and winner-takes-all, the PoS system chooses the creator of a new block based on the stake and other validators who attest the block will get the transaction fees proportionately. Therefore, PoS requires less computing power and is more of a fair play.

Another advantage of PoS is that it makes a 51% attack almost impossible, or not sensible to the bad actor. That is because in order to launch a 51% attack, a person must stake at least 51% of the total amount of ETH in circulation. Buying such a significant amount of crypto would no doubt attract the attention of the market, not to mention the extremely high cost. 

What would happen to ETH's price?

The final phase of ETH 2.0 is expected to launch in 2021 and it is not the end for Ethereum blockchain. With the release of ETH 2.0, users could utilize ethereum in a much cheaper and efficient way, while getting more security. The increase of usage comes with greater demand that could send ETH's price to new heights.

“By the time ETH 2.0 and rollups work together there will be 100,000 transactions per second capacity. That’ll mean a completely seamless experience for the next billion people,”said Jamie Anson, founder of Nifty Orchard and organizer of Ethereum London.

ETH is holding nicely at the $600 and it is currently consolidating gains. The new main support area is $600-$605. The new resistance is $625 and this is a level that could attract take-profit. ETH could face some minor corrections but the long-term trend remains bullish.

Despite the black swan of COVID-19 at the beginning of the year, the end of 2020 is a springboard for cryptocurrency to go higher. With vaccines on the way, a clear election result and the sliding dolla, the next question for ETH is: how high can ETH go?
