“Bitcoin traded at the $19,000 (roughly Rs. 15.66 lakh) level for most of the past week and gained momentum over the weekend as bulls returned to the market. BTC has constantly tested the $19,000 level before rising above the $20,000 (roughly Rs. 16.5) lakh) level. If BTC can trade sideways this week, bulls may lose further and thereby BTC may drop to the nearest support line. If demand grows slightly today, we might soon see BTC retesting the $21,000 (roughly Rs. 17.32 lakh) level. If bulls lose momentum, BTC might go down to $20,300 (roughly Rs. 16.73 lakh) and then to $19,600 (roughly Rs. 16.16 lakh),” analyzes Edul Patel, CEO and co-founder of crypto investment firm Mudrex speaking to Gadgets 360.
“Similarly, Ether also traded above $1,500 (roughly Rs. 1.23 lakh) over the weekend. If ETH can maintain the gains, we can see it reaching its next resistance at the $1,600 (roughly Rs. 1.31 lakh) mark. If bears cannot seize the initiative, the rise might continue this week, leading to a test of the $1,700 (roughly Rs. 1.4 lakh) zone,” explains Patel.
