For the Bitcoin Day Ahead

Bitcoin would need to move back through to $8,950 levels to bring the first major resistance level at $9,248.50 into play.

Support from the broader market would be needed, however, for Bitcoin to break back to $9,000 levels.

While steering clear of the first major support level at $69.48, Litecoin fell through the 38.2% FIB of $78.

Through the middle of the week, Litecoin bounced back to a Thursday intraweek high $84.50 before sliding back.

Litecoin moved back through the 38.2% FIB to break through the first major resistance level at $80.89.

A bearish end to the week reversed the gains, however, with a 7.89% slide on Saturday leaving Litecoin flat.

The sell-off saw Litecoin fall back through the first major resistance level and 38.2% FIB.

At the time of writing, Litecoin was down by 6.49% to $71.78 for the current week. A bearish start to the week saw Litecoin slide from a current week high $80.80 to a low $67.28 before finding support.

Steering clear of the major resistance levels, Litecoin fell through the 38.2% FIB of $78 and the first major support level at $71.30.

For the week ahead

Litecoin would need to move through to $78 levels to support a run at the first major resistance level at $83.34.

Support from the broader market would be needed for Litecoin to break back out from the current week high $80.80.

Barring a broad-based crypto rebound, however, the 38.2% FIB and resistance at $80 would likely pin Litecoin back in the week.

In the event of a rebound, last week’s high $84.50 and first major resistance level would likely cap any upside.

Failure to move back through to $78 levels could see Litecoin fall deeper into the red.

A fall back through the first major support level at $71.30 to the current week low $67.28 would bring the second major support level at $65.86 into play.

Barring an extended sell-off, however, Litecoin should steer clear of sub-$65 levels in the week.

Tron’s TRX

Tron’s TRX rose by 8.30% in the week ending 15th February. Following on from a 14.25% rally from the previous week, Tron’s TRX ended the week at $0.023615.

Bullish through most of the week, Tron’s TRX rose from a Monday intraweek low $0.020787 to a Friday intraweek high 0.02680.

Steering clear of the major support levels, Tron’s TRX broke through the first major resistance level at $0.0242 and second major resistance level at $0.02670.

Following 6 consecutive days in the green, a 10.44% slide on Saturday, led to a fall back through the major resistance levels.

At the time of writing, Tron’s TRX was down by 10.74% to $0.021058. A bearish start to the week saw Tron’s TRX slide from a current week high 0.024670 to a low $0.020258.

Tron’s TRX fell through the first major support level at $0.02070 on Sunday before finding support.

For the week ahead

Tron’s TRX would need to move back through to $0.0237 levels to support a run at the first major resistance level at $0.02670.

Support from the broader market would be needed, however, for Tron’s TRX to break back through to $0.0230 levels.

In the event of a broad-based crypto rebound, the first major resistance level at $0.02670 and last week’s high $0.0268 would likely limit any upside.

Failure to move through to $0.02370 could see Tron’s TRX fall deeper into the red.

A fall back through the first major support level at $0.02070 would bring sub-$0.020 levels into play before any recovery.

Barring an extended crypto sell-off, however, Tron’s TRX should steer clear of the second major support level at $0.0177.

BTC/USD 13/02/20 Daily Chart

For the Bitcoin Day Ahead

Bitcoin would need to move back through the morning high $10,361 to bring the first major resistance level at $10,452.67 into play.

Support from the broader market would be needed, however, for Bitcoin to break back through to $10,400 levels.

Barring another broad-based crypto rally, the first major resistance level at $10,452.67 would likely leave Bitcoin short of $10,500 levels.

In the event of another breakout, Bitcoin would eye a breakout from the second major resistance level at $10,567.33.

Failure to move back through to $10,400 levels could see Bitcoin hit reverse

A fall back through to sub-$10,345 levels would bring the first major support level at $10,230.67 into play.

Barring a crypto sell-off, however, Bitcoin should steer clear of the sub-$10,200 levels on the day.

Binance Coin Mid-Week Analysis – Resistance Levels in Play – 12/02/20

Binance

Binance Coin Price Resistance

It’s been a particularly bullish 1st half of the week for Binance Coin, which saw 3 consecutive days in the green.

Rallying from an early Sunday current week low $21.74, Binance Coin struck a Tuesday current week high $26.69 before easing back.

Steering clear of the major support levels, Binance Coin broke through the first major resistance level at $23.74 and second major resistance level at $25.69.

Of greater significance, however, was a breakthrough the 38.2% FIB of $22.90.

For the current week, Binance Coin was up by 18.29%, Sunday through to Tuesday.

An 11.9% rally on Sunday delivered the lion’s share of the gains. Support came from 3% and 2.5% gains on Monday and Tuesday.

The near-term bearish trend remained intact, however, supported by the late 2019 reversal and December’s swing lo $12.11.

It’s been a bullish start to the year, however, with Binance Coin up by 113% from December’s swing lo.

For the bulls, Binance Coin would need to break through the 62% FIB of $29.5 to form a near-term bullish trend.

At the time of writing, Binance Coin was down by 0.64% to $25.65. It was a bearish start to the day on Wednesday.  Binance Coin fell from an early morning high $26.09 to a low $25.41 early on.

BNB/USD 12/02/20 Daily Chart

For the remainder of the week

Binance Coin would need to break back through the second major resistance level at $25.69 to support a run at the 62% FIB of $29.5.

Support from the broader market would be needed, however, for Binance Coin to break out from the current week high $26.69.

Barring an extended rally going into the weekend, resistance at $27 would likely cap any upside.

In the event of an extended rally, the 38.2% FIB of $29.5 could come into play late in the week.

Failure to break back through the second major resistance level could see Binance Coin hit reverse.

A pullback through the first major resistance level at $23.74 to sub-$20.70 levels would be needed, however, to bring the first major support level at $18.76 into play.

Barring a crypto meltdown, however, Binance Coin should steer well clear of sub-$20 levels.
