1. Market Trend

Between July 27 and July 30, the BTC price fluctuated between $29,033 and $29,690, with a volatility of 2.26%. BTC dipped below $29,500 on the 1-hour chart but didn't see a substantial further drop, narrowing the price range to ($29,000-$29,500). $29,500 remains a formidable near-term resistance level, as previously noted. Recently, BTC once exceeded $29,500, reaching around $29,700, but failed to stabilize and retraced to around $29,200. Subsequently, BTC touched $29,500 twice but retraced immediately in both instances. This implies that modest bullish sentiment persists with low trader confidence. Market volatility is decreasing, the price range is compressing, and trading volume has declined. This situation often precedes a potential trend reversal. A bullish view would require breaking above $29,500 or stabilizing above $30,000 before making bullish trades. Caution is advised for potential bearish sentiment upon breaking below $29,000 to avoid significant price retracements. Due to limited profit opportunities, it’s best to wait for clearer chances before making trades.

Between July 27 and July 30, the price of ETH/BTC fluctuated within a range of 0.06338-0.06420, showing a 1.29% fluctuation. From the 1-hour chart, the ETH/BTC pair displayed relatively strong momentum from July 27 to July 29, continuously moving upwards along the 7-day moving average (1H) as support. However, the price fluctuations were minimal, and like BTC, the price range was compressed. On July 30, there was a price decline below the moving average, continuing downwards. As mentioned in the previous analysis report, the recent strategy for ETH/BTC involved using the moving average approach, and this same approach can still be applied in the upcoming price movements.

Based on overall analysis, the price fluctuations of most cryptocurrencies in the market are closely following BTC, with severe compression. Except for a few altcoins that show independent trends, the majority of cryptos are tracking BTC’s trends. The market is experiencing capital outflows, reduced trading volume, and a decrease in participants, leading to diminished overall profit potential. The only opportunity for profit lies in waiting for BTC to break out of its narrow price range and increase its volatility. The critical points for such opportunities have been provided in the previous analysis, so it’s essential to exercise patience and wait for the right market conditions.
