Technical Signal Trading
Investors and speculators are concerned about the price of digital assets as they may have entered the market at a higher price. The BTC Time-Frame Week (TF 1W) here shows the bigger picture of the coin movement. It is clear that the momentum weakens around 40,000-50,000 BTC/USD. This makes the resistance line at the bottom of the zone to be the point to watch out for.
ETH’s TF 1W reaches the resistance line at the top frame of the top zone. The recent ATH formed marked a significant increase of 200% from its 1,400 ETH/USD in 2018 when ICO was popular. This could be due to the rise in DeFi popularity and the continuous adoption of ETH. However, investors should consider this carefully as the risk-reward ratio may not be as attractive to be take profit in the short-run.
The performance of XRP is interesting as the price recovered and rose above the zone this week prior to its previous drop in response to the negative news on the Ripple Labs, Inc. Despite its recovery above the zone, the price is still fluctuating in the bottom zone. Investors should carefully consider the risk-reward ratio upon entry at the resistance zone.
Despite having broken through 3 zone, LTC is still stuck at a big resistance since 2018. There are potential sell-off from those who have been making a loss over the past 3 years.

The big resistance line at 1,850 and 2,000 Gold/USD is to be watched out for.
