1. Market Trend

Between August 3 and August 6, the BTC price fluctuated between $28,807.54 and $29,433.33, with a volatility of 2.17%. From the 1-hour chart, the BTC trend has been relatively stable in the past few days, with small fluctuations. The price once dropped below $29,000 but quickly recovered, and the rest of the time, it remained above $29,000. The previous analysis mentioned that $28,500 is a key BTC support level. If it drops below, it could reach $26,500 or lower. Bulls will defend around $29,000 (seen in recent BTC movements). The daily chart shows 15-day stability at $29,000, with 7-day, 25-day, and 99-day MA converging, suggesting potential for momentum buildup and technical adjustments. Typically, the key players often make decisive moves, leading to increased speed and volatility. Previous analysis points remain relevant in the current market, referencing the box range ($28,500-$29,500). It is advised to prioritize trend-following and trade with the overall market direction.

Between August 3 and August 6, the price of ETH/BTC fluctuated within a range of 0.06282-0.06330, showing a 0.76% fluctuation. From the 1-hour chart, ETH/BTC follows BTC’s price movements, awaiting BTC’s direction choice. At the same time, its trading volume and price volatility have significantly reduced. Currently, there is an urgent need for choosing a direction. Such coins often carry higher risks during subsequent market fluctuations, without well-defined support or resistance levels. Therefore, in the current overall market situation, it is advisable to prioritize BTC as an investment target and be cautious with other cryptocurrencies. Preserving capital is of utmost importance.

Based on overall analysis, currently, popular coins have experienced relatively small price fluctuations (following BTC’s trend). Moreover, there has been a further outflow of funds, leading to a significant decrease in trading volume. The market is now in a wait-and-see mode, anticipating BTC to break out of the box consolidation trend and make a directional choice. Only then will the market become active, and funds will start flowing in. It is recommended to use the key auxiliary points mentioned earlier to adapt to the changes in the overall market. This approach will ensure capital safety and potential profits during the oscillating market conditions (currently) and after the directional choice is made.
