The previous report showed, that our assumption for the past week had been: Bears would control crypto markets. The forecast was correct, is evidenced by the red column on the table below. The most important question was “would the support level represented by 143-day EMA (working days) hold or fail?” Looking at the chart NWST1100 above we can see, the support had held. Index price pulled off, so we saw an upsurge, the price pulled back into the upper Keltner band. Indicators: RSI and PPO changed direction. The breadth indicators stayed strong.
Outlook for this week
Looking ahead, the indicators give us the following signals: at the top, we can see momentum indicators, RSI is 65- bullish (can be overbought for days), PPO histogram bars could continue sloping up in the next few days. The Breadth indicators could flatten out. This set up is the basis for my opinion: a move upward in the bigger sideways trend is more likely, the price could test the resistance R1 (+6%).
