“The daily trend for BTC is traversing within an ascending channel pattern. We could see a buying momentum to follow soon, as profit booking volumes decrease. The next resistance for BTC is expected at $48,600,” it added.

The daily chart for ETH-BTC is on the verge of a channel pattern breakout. We could expect money moving into Altcoins and see the start of an Altcoin season. The next resistance for ETH-BTC is expected at 0.075 and immediate support is expected at 0.0653,” said WazirX.
As per Darshan Bathija, CEO and co founder of Vauld, “There are a few investment themes that investors seem to be more positive towards. For instance, the alternate layer-1 theme is holding strong as Solana’s SOL and Terra’s LUNA have not fallen as sharply as BTC and ETH.”
“On the other hand, we’ve seen a lot more interest in decentralized finance (DeFi), with the old guard of DeFi tokens (AAVE, UNI, COMP, and the like) outperform ETH in the past few weeks. However, taking a slightly longer view, Bitcoin is back to where it was a week ago,” he added.
