3 coins to keep an eye on | Issue #56

Hello everyone!

Last week, Bitcoin dropped 7.85% as it continued its gentle descent after the failed retest of the prior supporting orderblock around $9750. The price is currently resting on a pivotal level marked by the top of the daily orderblock around $8420, testing it for support.

If this level doesn’t hold, a much more significant drop may in the cards. Meanwhile, the altcoin marketcap continues to remain decoupled from Bitcoin’s price action as it hovers around $81 billion.

While we wait for Bitcoin to confirm support, here are three altcoins with events on CoinMarketCal during the upcoming week to keep an eye on.

Since April, LSK fans have been despairing as the price dropped early 84% before setting a bottom with a long lower wick at 0.0000771. Since then, a small but uncertain ray of hope is emerging.

During the last few weeks, the price climbed upward to rest the overlap of the daily orderblocks around 0.0000938. These held as resistance during the previous week. However, just below the current resistance is a daily orderblock around 0.0000887, which might provide support. 

The short-term trend is mildly bullish, as evidenced by the Ichimoku cloud’s recent bullish TK cross and the RSI holding a bullish value above 50. This trend combined with the Lisk.js event and Berlin meetup for startup industry network this Tuesday could help the potential support just below hold, offering hopeful bulls an entry.

After dropping since March, a potential reversal for MKR is in the works. The wick at 0.037847 marked the lowest point of a curved bottom that has been trending upward since early September.

A brief drop below the bullish trendline in early November stayed above the Ichimoku cloud and reclaimed the trend. Bulls quickly bought up an attempt by bears to push the price below this trendline as the price touched support from daily and weekly orderblocks around 0.05989536 - creating a large lower wick on Bitfinex. 

The price is approaching resistance at a weekly level around 0.08745384, with probable strong resistance hiding in the daily orderblock that this level contains. Still, bulls might wish to consider an entry in the current bull flag, especially in anticipation of the MCD launch today.

NEO has followed a similar pattern to MKR. A several-month downtrend reversed after a low point at 0.000828 with a violent bullish explosion.

This surge upward created a bullish TK cross on the Ichimoku cloud while also propelling price above the cloud - signaling a bullish short-term trend. 

However, the price may have risen too rapidly for bulls to sustain. A potential c-clamp pattern is forming on the Ichimoku cloud as price bounces off resistance at the daily orderblock around 0.001496, which suggests that some retracement is incoming.

Bulls wanting to join the uptrend can look to the NEO Live event with Veronica Wange from SafePal this Thursday for fundamental inspiration, and may wish to enter the retracement around probable support at confluence of the Ichimoku cloud’s kijun and the orderblock created by the last consolidation period around 0.001201.

In the midst of extreme market-wide turmoil, MakerDAO is facing one of its biggest challenges to date. The main form of collateral in the system, Ether, has dropped over 30% in a 24-hour timeframe marking one of the worst days in its short history. This has triggered an unprecedented wave of liquida...

The move we've been waiting for finally happened last week, as BTC plunged to close 14.48% below its open. The trendline through the consolidation zone around $8475 provided a temporary bottom, but will it hold? The altcoin marketcap crashed alongside BTC, losing 18% from $106 to $87 billion during the week. While we wa...

Bitcoin bulls paused last week around $10,250 at resistance near the EQ of the weekly OB from September's consolidation period. This region also triggered a reversal in October. Is another short-term reversal coming? It's too soon to say for sure. The altcoin marketcap made a similar move, climbing from $103 billion to nea...
