Crypto Technicals: BTC/USD grinds sideways above $5000 mark, traders remain wary as global uncertainty reigns

BTC/USD chart - Trading View

Mon, 16 Mar 2020, 04:04 am UTC

Technical Analysis: Intraday Bias Neutral

GMMA Indicator: Major Trend - Bearish; Minor Trend - Bearish

Overbought/ Oversold Index: Oversold

Volatility: Intraday volatility is low on the hourly charts

Support: 4771 (lower BB); Resistance: 5536 (200W MA)

BTC/USD is seen consolidating previous week's slump. The pair closed over 33% lower in the previous week.

Price action was extending sideways over the weekend and is rangebound in early Asian trade today.

Traders remain wary as global uncertainty continues to roil market sentiment. Bitcoin woes far from over.

Bears grip strongly intact. Price action has slipped below weekly 200 SMA and major and minor trend as evidenced by the GMMA remain bearish.

Oscillators are at oversold levels, but no major signs of reversal seen. Market sentiment is likely to remain the major driver for price action.

BTC/USD is currently holding the crucial $5000 mark. We see consolidation for a couple of sessions as price moves away from lower Bollinger band.

Breach below the $5000 mark could drag prices lower. Strong trendline support is seen at 4300. Break below will see test of 3128 (Dec 2018 low).

With the recent resurgence of the cryptocurrency market, it’s no surprise that the fraud and scams that became so common in 2017 are picking up again. If you’re an IEO or STO investor, it’s critical to have a good understanding of blockchain technology so that you can spot the obvious scams and avoid losing money.However, not all scams are so easy to spot. I fell victim once and lost all my savings, thanks to the expertise of WWW  RAPIDASSETRECOVERY COM and his team that helped me recover my funds.

Now is the time to buy the dip and accumulate as much as possible for the upcoming bull run, investors should grow their portfolio now either through buying more coins now that it’s cheap (Dollar Cost Averaging) or better still by trading. I am currently growing my portfolio through trading with signals provided by mr smith. Smiths trade signals are so accurate I realized 3 btc increment in my portfolio in just 3 weeks trading under his guidance, in his own little way, he is making an impact in the crypto space and can be reached via WhatsApp ( +15162001939) or text/call +1(646)-582-9402 for inquiries into profitable trading systems.
