1. Market Trend
Between May 8 and May 10, the BTC price fluctuated between $27,262 and $28,824.4, with a volatility of 5.73%. According to the 1-hour candle chart, after multiple failed attempts to break through the strong resistance level at $29,000, BTC started a downward trend with oscillations, ultimately reaching a low point of $27,262. It then entered a period of consolidation at a lower level. At 08:00 pm on May 10, the US Consumer Price Index (CPI) data for April was released, showing a year-on-year increase of 4.9% (estimated at 5.0%). As a result, there was a slight increase in trading volume, pushing the price above the $28,000 level. However, it was still under pressure from moving averages and failed to break through $28,000. Consequently, the price continued its decline, indicating a generally weak market sentiment.

Between May 8 and May 10, the price of ETH/BTC fluctuated within a range of 0.065497 to 0.067184, showing a 2.6% fluctuation. Looking at the 1-hour candle chart, the ETH’s price trend is relatively stronger compared to BTC. Therefore, after a slight decline in the early morning of May 8, ETH/BTC immediately started an oscillating upward trend. However, it is important to note that the overall trend still follows BTC, signifying a relative weakness and restricted volatility.
Overall analysis shows that BTC has been in a continuous downward state after failing to break the $30,000 level, falling below key psychological levels at $29,000 and $28,000. Despite occasional small-scale volume surges that create pressure for a breakthrough, none have managed to stabilize. Currently, the overall market sentiment is weak. It is prudent to observe and await a significant increase in trading volume for a breakthrough.
