Top 3 Coins to Watch Today: ZEC, SOL, SLP – April 25 Trading Analysis

Let’s take a closer look at today’s altcoins showing breakout signals. We’ll explain what the coin is, then dive into the trading charts and provide some analysis to help you decide.

1. Zcash (ZEC)

Zcash ZEC is a decentralised cryptocurrency focused on privacy and anonymity. It uses the zk-SNARK zero-knowledge proof technology that allows nodes on the network to verify transactions without revealing any sensitive information about those transactions. Zcash transactions, on the other hand, still have to be relayed via a public blockchain, but unlike pseudonymous cryptocurrencies, ZEC transactions by default do not reveal the sending and receiving addresses or the amount being sent.

ZEC Price Analysis

At the time of writing, ZEC is ranked the 50th cryptocurrency globally and the current price is US$158.86. Let’s take a look at the chart below for price analysis:

ZEC‘s recent bearish flip of the 9, 18, and 40 EMAs might cause bulls to be less aggressive in bidding. However, possible support near $146.47 and $155.96 – between the 41.8% and 58.6% retracements – could see at least a short-term bounce. 


Last year’s long-term consolidation suggests that the areas near $138.23 may be more likely to cause a longer-term trend reversal. 

Bears are likely to add to their shorts at probable resistance beginning near $168.50, which has confluence with the 18 EMA. A fast break of this resistance could trigger more selling near $190.12, the start of the bearish move.

If an aggressive bullish move does appear, trapped buyers in the probable resistance beginning near $210.32 might provide a ceiling for this impulse.

2. Solana (SOL)

Solana SOL is a highly functional open-source project that banks on blockchain technology’s permissionless nature to provide decentralised finance (DeFi) solutions. The Solana protocol is designed to facilitate decentralised app (DApp) creation. It aims to improve scalability by introducing a proof-of-history (PoH) consensus combined with the underlying proof-of-stake (PoS) consensus of the blockchain.

SOL Price Analysis

At the time of writing, SOL is ranked the 7th cryptocurrency globally and the current price is US$99.11. Let’s take a look at the chart below for price analysis:

SOL has retraced 68% from its December highs and reached possible support last month near $89.34. Resistance might begin near $120.34, which has confluence with the 9 and 18 EMAs.

A more substantial rally might reach near the swing high at $110.23 and the 40 EMA. This high is less likely to break if bears plan to continue the downtrend without a lengthier consolidation.

While not highly probable in the current market conditions, a more animated move upward could reach a wide resistance area between $126.42 and $133.94. This zone is where the last movement down accumulated positions before breaking down. 

Possible support rests near $96.34, which showed sensitivity on the last test. While it could provide support again, the higher-timeframe bearish trend is more likely to propel the price into an inefficient area between $91.10 and $87.54. If the price reaches this zone, the May 2021 swing high near $82.13 might mark a more sensitive level.

3. Smooth Love Potion (SLP)

Smooth Love Potion SLP tokens are earned by playing the Axie Infinity game. This digital asset serves as a replacement for experience points. SLP are ERC-20 tokens, and they can be used to breed new digital pets known as Axies. The cost of breeding begins at 100 SLP but increases gradually, rising to 200 SLP for the second breed, 300 for the third, 500 for the fourth, 800 for the fifth, and 1,300 for the sixth. Axies can be bred a maximum of seven times, and the seventh breed costs 2,100 SLP. This limit exists in order to prevent hyperinflation in the marketplace.

SLP Price Analysis

At the time of writing, SLP is ranked the 420th cryptocurrency globally and the current price is US$0.01547. Let’s take a look at the chart below for price analysis:

SLP‘s 65% rally during Q1 ran into a 30% retracement near $0.01615. Since then, the price has been consolidating in a 40% range between $0.01424 and $0.02432.

Just below the late-March low, $0.01500 is the first level likely to provide substantial support. If the price breaks down through this level, overlapping levels near $0.01458 might cap a run on the lows near $0.01410 and $0.01385.

The higher-timeframe analysis points to the area near $0.02351 as the next substantial resistance. Significant selling has been occurring here on the daily chart. If this level breaks, the swing highs near $0.02827 and $0.03060 may be the next targets.
