1. Market Trend

From August 21 to August 23, the BTC price fluctuated between $25,300.00 and $26,299.00, with a volatility of 3.95%. According to the 1-hour chart, the BTC price, after a major drop to $25,166, hasn’t rebounded effectively, showing limited volatility and a flat trend. This suggests weak market sentiment and confidence. On the evening of August 23, BTC saw a high-volume decline to $25,300, then rapidly surged past $26,000. Around the $25,000 mark, it’s a strong defense line contested by bullish traders. Given past trends, the area near $25,000 will likely see multiple tests and quick upward movement. Should BTC dip here and shift to oscillation instead of quick upward movement, or if the speed of ascent slows notably, the $25,000 level is at risk. It is advised to monitor the $25,000 trend closely. Aggressive investors might consider it a stop-loss mark. Conservative investors should watch more and act less in the current market, waiting for clearer conditions before proceeding.

Between August 21 and August 23, the price of ETH/BTC fluctuated within a range of 0.06230-0.06447, showing a 3.48% fluctuation. From the 1-hour chart, ETH/BTC shows a relatively stronger performance compared to BTC. After a significant drop in BTC, ETH/BTC reclaimed its losses and achieved a recent high. Over the past few days, ETH/BTC has been trading in a tight range at higher levels. On the evening of August 23, it experienced a slight decline to a low of 0.06230, but later recovered most of the losses. Looking at the recent period, ETH/BTC has become a relatively strong and stable asset in the context of a weak market. On higher timeframes (4-hour and daily charts), it stays above important moving averages. At this point, it is viable to employ the moving average strategy mentioned in the previous analysis report, entering positions at appropriate points for corresponding actions. However, it’s important to control your positions and set up stop-loss points.

Based on overall analysis, the market is in a period of oscillation following a major decline with a relatively stable trend. Combining the analysis of BTC above, the primary strategy remains cautious observation with limited action. The $25,000 level serves as the first crucial point after the significant drop (recently a pivotal level for both bulls and bears), holding particular importance for overall market sentiment and investor confidence. In terms of operations, the $25,000 level should be treated as a significant support level.

The Bitcoin Ahr999 index of 0.43 is below the buy-the-dip level ($26,470) and the DCA level ($43,220). Therefore, it is viable to implement spot trading for popular coins.
