Bitcoin Eyes New All-Time High, Ethereum Trails, Coinbase Rallies

Bitcoin Eyes New All-Time High

Bitcoin is near an all-time high, Ethereum lags, and Coinbase rallies amid heightened market activity and impending ETF decisions.

Bitcoin is bullish, eyeing a new all-time high as it rallies approximately 12% since Sunday’s opening. The surge in demand for Bitcoin, the largest cryptocurrency by market cap, has been relentless, propelling its price to new heights. The technical analysis reveals a bullish breakout from a short-term descending channel, indicating a potential attempt to reach a fresh record high shortly, particularly ahead of the impending halving event next month.

Analysts note that any potential pullbacks in Bitcoin’s price will likely find initial support around $69,000, followed by a critical support level under $65,000. The Average True Range (ATR) reading is currently at a multi-month high, suggesting heightened volatility, while the Commodity Channel Index (CCI) indicator indicates Bitcoin is nearing overbought territory. Despite analysts’ caution, investors cannot rule out a short-term reversal in Bitcoin despite its positive outlook.

Bitcoin Eyes New All-Time High, Ethereum Trails, Coinbase Rallies

In contrast, Ethereum, the second-largest cryptocurrency by market cap, is experiencing a slower ascent, trailing behind Bitcoin’s rapid surge. Although Ethereum has been making gains, it remains approximately 30% below its peak and is struggling to reclaim its mid-March multi-month high of around $4,100. The delay in the potential approval of Ethereum spot exchange-traded funds (ETFs), with the Van Eck ETF deadline set for May 23rd, dampens investor sentiment and impedes Ethereum’s performance. With the approval of ETFs appearing to be pushed further into the future, Ethereum may face challenges in matching Bitcoin’s performance in the weeks ahead.

Meanwhile, Coinbase (COIN), the largest cryptocurrency exchange in the United States, continues to benefit from the cryptocurrency market’s surging interest and trading activity. Coinbase shares have surged to levels last seen in December 2021, serving as a barometer for overall market performance. Technical analysis indicates that Coinbase is trading around the 61.8% Fibonacci retracement level of the sell-off from May 2021 to January 2023, with the next target set at the 78.6% retracement level of $343. The analysis identifies support levels at the 50% retracement level of $230.

As Bitcoin eyes a new all-time high, Ethereum struggles to keep pace, and Coinbase rides the wave of heightened market activity, the cryptocurrency market remains dynamic and ripe with opportunities for investors, albeit with accompanying risks.
