On the Radar – Coins to Watch

  • Bitcoin surges through $50,000 amid a mix of boom and doom scenarios.
  • Bitcoin ETF Flows are on the uptick. 
  • Altcoin Analysis: Avalanche (AVAX), Jito (JTO)

It’s been a massive week for the digital asset space as more and more milestones are being ticked off. As Bitcoin has headed into $52,000 USD, ​​investors who bought BTC near the top of the 2021 bull run are close to or near the break-even point. An estimated 91% of Bitcoin holders are currently in profit. 

A lot of this positive price action has been directed at the persistent demand for spot Bitcoin from the ETF products. And it’s not hard to see why this might be the case.

One-Way Traffic For Bitcoin ETF 

Traditional finance has let their money do the talking, as we’ve seen sheer dominance on the buy side for Bitcoin ETFs, with 14 days straight of more buying than selling across all Bitcoin ETF products. This comes notably after a slow start, where the GBTC product experienced strong selling in its first seven days, which has now eased.

Overnight we saw an additional $750M USD in inflows for the BlackRock IBIT ETF product. This is an interesting development and trend to be paying close attention to while we head into the Bitcoin halving, where new supply will be cut in half.

Why This Matters

Persistent buying in large sums by institutions, plus there being less supply in less than 60 days’ time means a huge supply shock could be on the horizon. 

In my opinion, it’s fundamentals like this that put more weight behind the script of Bitcoin continuing to move higher. 

Bitcoin – BTC

After the recent breakout on Bitcoin, we can now zoom out and assess how the market measures up. Using the Fibonacci analysis, we can take the previous all-time high and the range lows from the current cycle to create segments of technical interest—levels where investors and traders may see some significance. 

I cover this in detail in my latest video on YouTube – check it out for a more detailed walkthrough of the scenarios I see at play. I’ve only just started making video content, very appreciative of any support if of course you find this content helpful.

Below are two higher time frame events that I am watching based on Fibonacci analysis of the previous all time high and the recent market cycle bottom. 

Bullish scenario 

Bitcoin bulls continue to hold prices towards the next level of interest which is the 0.786 Fibonacci level ($57,545 USD). From here we can wait to see if there is enough momentum to then potentially set up a new all-time high. 

Bearish scenario

Failure from the bulls to keep their foot on the gas, and we start to lose the key 0.618 Fibonacci level ($47,553 USD). If we fail to reclaim the 0.618, we could see Bitcoin start to cool off. 

Reminder! Altcoins are often hyper-reactive to the sentiment on Bitcoin, so I am expecting volatility pending the outcome. 

Avalanche – AVAX

AVAX made some big moves towards the back end of last year, especially with the ties to building a gaming narrative (GameFi). But recently it has been consolidating along with the rest of the market. Below are two potential higher time frame scenarios using Fibonacci analysis.

Mapping out AVAX from the previous all time high and current cycle low, we could draw the following analysis. 

Bullish scenario 

If the previous monthly high of $49.96 is taken out, bulls send prices higher. The next potential target could be $77.80, the midpoint of the range. 

Bearish scenario

Failure to close above the monthly high of $49.96. This may result in prices falling lower. 

Jito – JTO

A newer member of the Solana ecosystem, Jito looks to bring the benefits of liquid staking to Solana. Simply put, a similar concept to Lido DAO on Ethereum, which has been a successful project to date.

Looking at the technical structure of JTO, it has breached a key level of resistance when drawing a trendline off the daily closes from prior pivot highs. Below are two scenarios based on market structure. 

Bullish scenario 

A move higher after this breakout towards the previous prior high. This is an approximate 25% move from the time of writing. Once this level is reached, the market may or may not continue high pending underlying conditions. 

Bearish scenario

Not enough interest in this breakout, which could result in a retest along this current key resistance level. Should buyers not step in at any stage, we could see prices break below the critical resistance level which we just broke. 


See you all again next week.
