Bitcoin and Ethereum See Sharp Drops, Huobi Global Analyst Says ‘Pay Attention to the Changes in Price Direction’

This week saw gains of double-digits in a number of crypto assets, including polkadot and enjin. Out of the $2.36 trillion in value across more than 12,000 crypto assets, BTC’s dominance is 38.3% while ethereum’s dominance is 19.1%. Discussing bitcoin (BTC) prices with News, the co-founder of Huobi Group, Du Jun, said that the price of bitcoin tends to stabilize and traders should “pay attention to the changes in price direction.”

“According to data from Huobi Global, BTC’s price stabilized during [the] daytime, after a sharp drop at night, fluctuating back and forth from $47,500, changing directions several times,” Huobi’s co-founder explained to our newsdesk. “From the 4h k-line, three EMA lines descended steeply, k-line was located near the lower rail of the Bollinger Bands, and the opening of the Bollinger Bands expanded significantly,” Jun added. An analyst added further:

The decline was blocked but the short-term side remains strong as seen by the daily line. The BTC price has fallen at an identical rate to the one-week increase. There is also a tendency for it to form a downward channel. The upside for the short-term is unlikely. Attention should be paid to short-term changes in the direction of the price and support by the $45,500 position.

As far as ethereum (ETH) markets are concerned, Huobi Global’s Du Jun said that ethereum markets were very similar to BTC’s market patterns. “[The] price of ETH stabilized during daytime after a sharp drop at night, oscillating slightly back and forth, changing directions several times, echoing the BTC price trend, and it is now near $3,800,” Jun added on Wednesday. Jun’s ethereum (ETH) market outlook continued:

At the 4hk-line the down adjustment is very strong, and momentum is quite high. Trading volume increased as each moving average dropped steeply. Starting [the]Daily level the downtrend is becoming less apparent. The support at 4680 is important in the near term. The price trend downward will begin once it breaks out.
