*We gauge the crypto market breadth and direction of the market by showing charts 2100NEWS Digital Assets Total Index (NWST1100) which represent top 1100 Digital Assets. The chart overwhelmed with information is at first glance difficult to read but on the chart is the most important price information, important decisive price levels, momentum, volume of trading, and crypto market breadth.
In the previous report, our assumption was a continuing downward trend, said the price could retest the critical support of 850 points. The chart shows a steep selloff, the NWST1100 bearing down on its Bollinger and last month’s low which was an important test. The index survived last week’s selling and remaining above chart support at prior lows.
Looking ahead to the next week, chart patterns show us Symettrical triangle (the lines converge as they are extended and the symmetrical triangle takes shape). A very clear Symettrical triangle has Bitcoin as the most dominant member of NWST1100 (weight 70%). Continuation or reversal, the direction of the next major move can only be determined after a valid breakout in the next two weeks. The indicators give us the following signals: we can see that RSI is 40, the PPO wave could change the slope. PPO histogram as a momentum indicator could change a slope and start the positive wave in the next few days, the index could get upside momentum. Breadth indicator McClellan summation index and ADVP a breadth statistic based on Net Advancing Volume are still decreasing. This set up means that our assumption is that move to the upper trendline is likely.
