Bitcoin’s price traded sideways for the bulk of Wednesday’s daily candle and finished the day marginally in red figures [-$297].
The BTC/USD 1D chart below from gsotolongo shows BTC’s price trying to confirm a breakout and backtest on that time frame.
BTC bulls are still trying to get a candle close above the 50.00% fib level [$49,250.51] and again reclaim the $50k level. If bulls successfully reclaim the $50k level, the next overhead target is the 38.20% fib level [$53,911.39].
From a bearish trader’s perspective, BTC bears need to withstand the current bullish momentum. If bears can withstand it, they’ll again try to test the 61.80% fib level [$44,589.63] and attempt to break that level and follow it with a daily candle close below it to push BTC’s price lower.
The Fear and Greed Index is 34 Fear and -11 from yesterday’s reading of 45 Fear.

Ether’s traders also settled up in red digits on Wednesday, and ETH’s price finished the day -$36.8.
In the ETH/USD 1D chart below, Smart_Cryptologistist indicates that it’s decision time for Ether market participants.
Ether bulls are hoping they can hold a long-term ascending channel and its trendline and send ETH’s price back above an important level of inflection at $4k.
Bullish ETH traders have held the 0.786 fib level [$3,689.83] as support and are now seeking to take back to the 1 fib level [$4,237.37].
If bearish Ether traders succeed instead, they’ll need to test the 0.786 fib again and breach it to the downside before testing the 0.618 [$3,259.98].
Ether’s moving averages are as follows: 20-Day [$4,188.49], 50-Day [$4,244.48], 100-Day [$3,763.47], 200-Day [$3,088.42], Year to Date [$2,750.97].

The SOL/USD 1D chart below from aria1382 shows Solana’s price is attempting to crack overhead resistance at the 0.236 fib level [$184.23]. If that level is cracked, then the next level bulls will attempt to reclaim is the 0.382 fib [$202.45].
Solana bears, conversely, are hoping to send SOL’s price again back down to re-test the 0 fib [$147.32] and, if possible, send SOL’s price back down to the $116 level. The $116 level could be the last line of defense for bulls before a trip back down to a two-figure SOL price.
