The crypto market has started the new week with a correction sentiment, reducing capitalisation by 3% to $1.54 trillion in the last 24 hours. As is often the case with intense moves, Bitcoin looks more stable than the market, losing only 1.8% to $41.1K. Ethereum is down 2.3% to $2160.
Bitcoin is once again testing the local support it managed to hold last week. But we are attracted by a sequence of lower local highs, indicating an impressive selling proposition. We may be seeing profit taking from all the upside from the October lows. Working off this scenario suggests a pullback to the $38K area if the market falls below $40K. But even this potentially nasty drawdown looks to be just part of a larger bull cycle that Bitcoin is now moving within.
Ethereum is developing a retreat from the upper boundary of the trading channel, currently testing the early April peak area. The scenario of a shallow correction suggests a decline of about $100 more to $2060, but we should be ready for $1700 as well.

The bitcoin-based NFT market will grow 100-fold in 2024, researchers at cryptocurrency exchange Bitget predict. The ORDI token, being the leading token of the Bitcoin ecosystem, is already capable of entering the top 30 in terms of market capitalisation during the next bull market. If the BTC ecosystem continues to expand, Bitcoin could reach $100K thanks to a surge in demand for the first cryptocurrency.
The US SEC is reviewing its approach to spot bitcoin ETFs following ‘court decisions’, the regulator’s head, Gary Gensler, commented. The agency is currently reviewing between eight and 12 such proposals, he said.
