After another volatile week, Bitcoin is currently down 2% on the weekly. BTC rebounded from $33K on Monday and pushed higher to meet the upper angle of a symmetrical triangle pattern, as seen on the charts below.
Unfortunately, BTC could not break out and quickly rolled over from there into $33,520 support on Tuesday. After another failed retest of the upper angle on Wednesday (at $35K), BTC heavily rejected and broke to the downside.
Since the breakdown of the triangle, it has found support at $32K, which was the lowest price BTC traded at over the past two weeks, and as of now, BTC is mostly consolidating around the $33K mark.
Looking ahead, the first support lies between $32,730 and $32,270. This is followed by $31,600 (double-bottom support), $31,185 (downside 1.618 Fib Extension), $30,600, and $30,000.
On the other side, the first resistance lies at $33,000. This is followed by $33,520, $34,000 (20-day MA & descending trend-line), $35,000, and $35,900 (50-day MA).
Ethereum is trading near the same price from a week ago, amid the $2K mark. The coin bounced from the 20-day MA at around $2080 at the start of the week and pushed higher into the $2340 – 2400 resistance zone (MA-50 and 0.236 Fib level), failing to break above it on two occasions – Sunday and Wednesday.
After multiple failed attempts to sustain $2340, ETH rolled over yesterday after hitting the 50-day MA the day before. It then broke a short-term rising wedge and collapsed back into the 20-day MA zone around $2100. As of earlier today, ETH spiked lower to $2035 (Feb-2021 highs) but has bounced back since, attempting to remain above the 20-day MA once again.
Looking ahead, the first major resistance lies at $2200. This is followed by $2340 – $2400 (bearish .236 Fib & 50-day MA), $2560 (100-day MA), and $2725 (bearish .382 Fib).
On the other side, the first support lies at $2100 (20-day MA). This is followed by $2000 (200-day MA), $1888 (.886 Fib), and $1710 (mid-March support).

There, it found resistance at a short-term bearish .618 Fib Retracement and rolled over yesterday. Finally, it collapsed beneath the 50-day MA, breaking beneath the wedge, and continued into support at 0.0636 BTC today, provided by a .382 Fib and the lower angle of the price channel.
