Bitcoin's upside is becoming less aggressive, which could indicate that sellers are taking more and more control. As you can see in the chart below, Bitcoin took the last higher low without much volume. It is currently testing the daily demand zone of $20,700 - 21,300. Bitcoin is likely to respond at this level because it recently finished a big upward run with two significant daily candles and has not retested this zone since. Therefore, this zone can be called a ‘fresh demand zone’. The next daily demand zone that Bitcoin can test is at $18,900 - 20,000 if it continues to fall.
The $2000 mark is a psychological level for people who want to sell Ethereum, and it picked up several sell orders that were just above $2016 in the daily supply zone.
Right now, Ethereum is testing the newly created daily demand zone at $1660 - 1790. If Ethereum loses this level, the next new daily demand zone is at $1360 - 1450. This zone is also at the "golden pocket" of the Fibonacci retracement, between 0.5 and 0.618.
The first new daily demand zone for total crypto market capitalization is $925 billion to $965 billion. This coincides with the new demand zones for Bitcoin and Ethereum.
