Bitcoin, Ethereum Technical Analysis: BTC on Brink of ‘Death Cross’ on Moving Average Trendline

Bitcoin started the week on the brink of a downwards crossover of two key moving average trend lines, which could signal an upcoming price drop. The 10-day and 25-day moving average look set to cross, potentially leading to a breakout of the $27,000 level. Ethereum is trading above a floor at $1,830 as of writing.

Bitcoin

Bitcoin (BTC) is on the brink of registering a downward crossover of its 10-day (red) and 25-day (blue) moving averages.

A recent downtrend, which today pushed BTC/USD to an intraday low of $27,192.03, has also led to an overall shift in market momentum.

This latest low in bitcoin comes less than a day after the world’s largest cryptocurrency traded at a high of $27,979.98.

Overall, BTC is trading over 7% lower than at the same point last week, when the price was above $30,000.

In addition to the potential crossover of moving averages, the 14-day relative strength index (RSI) continues to hover close to a floor at 42.00.

At the time of writing, the index is tracking at 44.11, with BTC trading at $27,550.00.

Ethereum

In addition to BTC, ethereum (ETH) also started the week in the red, with prices hovering close to a key point of support.

Following a high of $1,888.19 on Sunday, ETH/USD slipped to an intraday low of $1,831.16 earlier in today’s session.

As a result of this move, ethereum fell close to its long-term price floor at $1,830, however bulls have so far rejected a breakout.

One of the reasons that a break has yet to occur seems to be due to the RSI, which continues to trend above support at 44.00

Price strength is now tracking at 45.58, with a ceiling at 52.00 a potential target for bulls hopeful of recapturing the $1,900 mark.
