What are crypto exchanges saying about the current market scenario?

“In the last 24 hours, Bitcoin has climbed above $71,000, indicating bullish sentiment ahead of the halving event,” Mudrex co-founder and CEO Edul Patel told ABP Live. This upward momentum signals a possible retracement to the record high of $73,777, followed by resistance at $84,000. Over the past year, Bitcoin has increased by an impressive 154%. In contrast, Ethereum has outpaced Bitcoin's gains with an 8% increase in a day, driven by increased on-chain activity, and a staggering 99% increase over the past year, with the next Resistance is estimated at $3,900.

CoinSwitch Markets Desk notes, “Bitcoin continues its uptrend with just 10 days remaining until the much-hyped Bitcoin halving anticipated on 4/20/2024. If we look at recent history, just before the Bitcoin ETF, we saw a similar price action, where despite the price breaking recent highs, it became a sell-off news event as soon as the ETF was announced. Traders should be cautious about both bullish and bearish positions, as there is a good chance that there will be some profit-taking at the time of the halving.

Rajagopal Menon, Vice President of WazirX, said, “Bitcoin is in an uptrend and its next resistance level is estimated to be $72k. The 100-hour simple moving average shows a strong bullish trend. Immediate resistance is seen near $72,000, followed by key hurdles at $72,500 and $72,800. A decisive break above the $72,800 resistance level could initiate a fresh rise in price. Now that dollar liquidity has also reduced, the support may not drop below $71k, potentially leading to a new ATH. Analysts are also cautioning against a potential 'news selling' phenomenon, as market participants reacted ahead of the pre-halving.

Shivam Thakral, CEO of BuyUcoin, said, “Bitcoin reached an all-time high of $72,650 for the first time in a month. The largest cryptocurrency is moving towards $73,000 with a dominance of 52.36%. Ethereum and other altcoins, especially memecoins, enjoyed a steady surge in the market. The next important level to break will be around the previous all-time high of $74,000, with a new all-time high close to the halving.”

“Over the past day, the crypto market remained bullish, with both ETH and BTC gaining more than 5%, and ETH outperforming BTC,” the CoinDCX research team told ABP Live. Technically, BTC has surpassed the $72,000 mark and is now consolidating near the $71,300 resistance. BTC needs to clear its all-time high for further upside, with price action and indicators suggesting a bullish outlook. Meanwhile, ETH has shown a strong performance, surpassing the key level of $3,655 and currently trading slightly above it. Continuation from here could take ETH above the key resistance levels at $3,960 and $4,070. Additionally, the ETH/BTC pair saw a rise, leading altcoins to rise by 5-10%.”
