Written by Branko on February 25, 2019
Timing is Everything. In the 2100News weekly crypto report, we analyze and gauge the entire crypto market to understand why the crypto universe is as it is in order to understand where we go. We analyze the crypto market breadth and direction of the market by showing charts 2100NEWS Digital Assets Total Index (NWST1100) which represent top 1100 Digital Assets.
In the last week, markets made a big move up. Looking at the (NWST1100) chart, we can see that it made two big steps up in the last two weeks. As we predicted in the previous Weekly Crypto Report, we were observing a bullish breakout which led to the formation and confirmation of a bullish trend. The RSI (over 70) confirmed the bullish trend. Crypto market failed to extend its bullish momentum – the third time it came near a specific resistance area (480 points NWST1100). Sell-off on Sunday demonstrated that the level near 480 points had become a significant level of resistance. The rapid drop was likely caused by traders who were net-long. The market not absorbing their selling pressure. As evidence, short interest has been in decline throughout most of the year and did not increase over the weekend.
Looking ahead to next week. Report On the PPO and PPO histogram, we can see that they started declining and swing down. Their waves will be negative in the next few days. RSI is in the neutral zone between 40 and 60. Breadth indicator McClellan summation index is still rising. this set up means that we expect consolidation and a short term sideways trend.
