Bitcoin, Ethereum Technical Analysis: BTC, ETH 2% Lower, Ahead of FOMC Minutes 

Recommended Posts


Bitcoin was once again trading below a key resistance level of $27,000 on Wednesday, ahead of today’s U.S. Federal Open Market Committee (FOMC) minutes report. Markets are expecting that the minutes will show the Federal Reserve’s timeline towards a policy pivot. Ethereum was 2% lower today.


Bitcoin (BTC) moved below $27,000 on Wednesday, as markets begin to prepare for the release of the upcoming FOMC minutes report.

Following a high of $27,386.99 on Tuesday, BTC/USD dropped to a low of $26,671.98 earlier in today’s session.

The move comes following two days of consecutive gains, which pushed bitcoin to a one-week high.

Looking at the chart, the decline came as the relative strength index (RSI) of 14 days fell below a support point at 42.00.

At the time of writing this, the index is now tracking at 41.356, with a lower floor at 39.00 a possible target for bears.

If successful in reaching this level, BTC will likely be at the $26,300 mark.


Ethereum (ETH) fell by as much as 2% in today’s session, however bulls have so far rejected a breakout below the $1,800 level.

ETH/USD dropped to an intraday low of $1,811.79 on Wednesday, which comes a day after trading at a peak of $1,869.34.

Similar to bitcoin, today’s slippage sees bearish pressure put a stop to a mini-win streak for the world’s second largest cryptocurrency.

Should this downwards pressure continue to gain momentum, there is a good chance that ETH could move below $1,800 shortly.

Price strength is currently tracking at 46.09, with a floor at 44.00 a potential landing stop in the event of further declines.

Long-term bulls will remain optimistic however, with an upwards crossover of the 10-day (red), and 25-day (blue) moving averages on the cusp of happening.
