$ETH leading the way for $BTC

Good morning and happy Black Friday. Indecisive price action finally came to an end overnight as both $ETH and $BTC started to rally. While the Etherum dominance rose to 19%, the Bitcoin dominance has slipped to 39.7%, the lowest since mid-May 2021. The outflow of funds from $BTC can partly explain the recent explosion of metaverse tokens such as $SAND and $MANA.

$BTC rose to $59K overnight and inching towards the downward-trending resistance line. However, a rejection of this level would see prices to retest at mid or even the low 50s in the next few days. Don’t forget that we are still on a downtrend — stay cautious and wait until the weekend to see if it’s a fake-out. Although the resistance of RSI has been broken too, the funding rates can get stretched and come back very suddenly, whenever the $BTC price moves higher.

$ETH shot up by 6% and broke the resistance at $4,440. A similar resistance line $BTC saw is also playing out on $ETH’s chart, but the main difference is that $ETH has broken through it. A retest of $4,440 would be the appropriate move to wait to confirm a trend reversal and signal an upward move. Do keep an eye on $BTC — any weakness in its price action over a prolonged period may see similar moves in $ETH. The price action that we have seen in $ETH is what we would ideally like to see in $BTC.

Ark Invest’s CEO Cathie Wood said that she was not fazed with the recent $BTC dip and remains optimistic about the largest digital asset’s growth during a CNBC’s Squawk Box interview. Known for investing in disruptive technologies, Wood opined $BTC was more than just an inflation hedge and it presents itself as a useful asset in protecting against counterparty risks in case of another financial meltdown seen in 2008/2009.
