1. Market Trend

From Dec. 28 to Jan. 2, the BTC price swung from $41,300.00 to $45,879.63, with a volatility of 11.8%. The last analysis report mentioned that BTC has been oscillating widely between $41000 and $43000 for over 10 days, and the upward potential on the technical side has already been cleared. Holding coins and waiting for a rise is still the current main theme. On January 2 at 2:00 AM, BTC started a slow upward movement, marked by increased trading volume (not a sudden breakthrough). This trend helped decrease the intensity of the bull-bear struggle and pullback severity during the ascent, enhancing market stability. The wide oscillation period of over 10 days concluded, paving the way for a new upward channel. The 1-hour, 4-hour, 1-day, and 1-week candlesticks display a typical bullish trend with rising moving averages and expanding trading volume. The harmonized rise of volume and price ensures the stability of this upward trend. Deep pullbacks are unlikely in the current market. Potential investors can consider entering trades around $45000-$45200, aiming for $48000. In a bull market, a simple strategy of holding coins and awaiting a rise is the safest. Given the current market conditions, this approach is optimal for welcoming the new uptrend.

Between Dec. 28 and Jan. 2, the price of ETH/BTC fluctuated within a range of 0.05221-0.05622, showing a 7.68% fluctuation. The previous analysis mentioned that the 1-hour and 4-hour timeframes have opened an upward channel, but on the daily chart, it needs to break and firmly hold above 0.05650 for a stable upward potential in the larger timeframe. It is advisable to wait for the stabilization above 0.05650 before entering the market. Recently, ETH/BTC didn’t touch this level, reaching 0.05622 and moving downward, erasing previous gains. It currently appears bearish from all timeframes. For a short-term reversal, a rapid surge in volume, breaking resistance with a minor pullback, and slow upward movement would be effective. Otherwise, it’s wise to avoid this coin for an extended period.

Based on overall analysis, the current market has introduced a new round of upward potential, with a continuous inflow of funds, rising trading volumes, and notably improved investor sentiment in recent days. Most cryptocurrencies have caught this upward trend (such as OP, ORDI, ARB, etc.). However, the outlook for ETH is not very optimistic. In previous bull markets, there were instances of ETH leading the overall market upward. Now, it seems challenging to see the former dominance, while the SOL series is showing impressive gains with diverse ecological layouts and sustained innovation leadership. In comparison, ETH appears relatively subdued. Regardless, we can still look forward to ETH’s performance in the end. In the face of the current market situation, it is still advisable to adhere to the core strategy of holding coins and waiting for a rise.
