Bitcoin and Monero’s XMR – Weekly Technical Analysis – September 21st, 2020

·4-min read

Bitcoin

Bitcoin rallied by 5.84% in the week ending 20th September. Following on from a 0.54% gain from the week prior, Bitcoin ended the week at $10,934.5.

It was a particularly bullish start to the week. Bitcoin rallied from a Monday intraweek low $10,259.0 to a Saturday intraweek high $11,185.0.

Steering clear of the first major support level at $9,935, Bitcoin broke through the first major resistance level at $10,675 and the second major resistance level at $11,019.

It was a bearish end to the week, however. Bitcoin fell back through the second major resistance level to wrap up the week at sub-$11,000 levels.

4 days in the green that included a 3.47% gain on Monday delivered the upside. A 1.47% slide on Sunday limited the upside for the week, however.

For the week ahead

Bitcoin would need to avoid a fall through $10,793 pivot to support a run the first major resistance level at $11,327.

Support from the broader market would be needed for Bitcoin to break out from last week’s high $11,185.

Barring an extended crypto rally, the first major resistance level and resistance at $11,500 would likely pin Bitcoin back.

In the event of a breakout, Bitcoin could test the second major resistance level at $11,719 and resistance at $12,000 before any pullback.

Failure to avoid a fall through the $11,793 pivot would bring the first major support level at $10,401 into play.

Barring an extended sell-off, Bitcoin should steer clear of sub-$10,000 levels. The second major support level sits at $9,867.

At the time of writing, Bitcoin was up by 0.28% to $10,964.6.  A mixed start to the week saw Bitcoin fall to an early Monday morning low $10,917.0 before rising to a high $10,993.0.

Bitcoin left the major support and resistance levels untested at the start of the week.

Monero’s XMR

Monero’s XMR rallied by 8% in the week ending 20th September. Following on from a 6.93% gain from the previous week, Monero’s XMR ended the week at $92.75.

It was a mixed start to the week. Monero’s XMR fell to a Monday intraweek low $84.31 before finding support.

Steering well clear of the first major support level at $78.57, Monero’s XMR rallied to a Saturday intraweek high $95.27.

Monero’s XMR broke through the 23.6% FIB of $90 and the first major resistance level at $91.77 before easing back.

A bearish end to the week saw Monero’s XMR slide back to $90 levels before steadying. Monero’s XMR fell back through the first major resistance level at $91.77 to test support at the 23.6% FIB of $90.

Off the back of the late support, Monero’s XMR broke back through the first major resistance level to wrap up the week at $92 levels.

3-days in the green that included a 6.57% rally on Monday and 5.18% gain on Thursday delivered the upside. A 3.25% fall on Wednesday limited the upside for the week, however.

For the week ahead

Monero’s XMR would need to avoid a fall through the $90.78 pivot and 23.6% FIB of $90 to support a run at the first major resistance level at $97.24.

Support from the broader market would be needed, however, for Monero’s XMR to break out from last week’s high $95.27.

Barring an extended crypto rally, the first major resistance level and resistance at $100 would likely cap any upside.

In the event of another breakout, Monero’s XMR could test the second major resistance level at $101.74.

Failure to avoid a fall through the $90.78 pivot and 23.6% FIB would bring the first major support level at $86.28 into play.

Barring an extended crypto market sell-off, however, Monero’s XMR should steer clear of sub-$80 levels. The second major support level sits at $79.82.

At the time of writing, Monero’s XMR was up by 0.20% to $92.94. A mixed start to the week saw Monero’s XMR fall to an early Monday low $92.28 before rising to a high $93.25.

Monero’s XMR left the major support and resistance levels untested at the start of the week.
