Bitcoin’s bulls outbidded bearish traders on Sunday to paint a green daily candle [+$844] yet bears still won the weekly candle and painted a red candle for the 8th consecutive week. That was the first time in the 13+ year history of bitcoin that BTC closed the weekly time frame with eight straight weeks of negative price action.
The first chart we’re analyzing today is the BTC/USD 1D chart below by sngyuchao. BTC’s price is trading between 0.786 [$29,467.1] and 0.618 [$31,166.7], at the time of writing.
The first target that BTC traders need to regain to turn around the current bearish trend is the 0.5 fibonacci level [$32,360.5]. The secondary target overhead is 0.382 [$33,554.3] followed by a third target of 0.236 [$35,031.4].
What do bears need to do to continue the larger BTC and macro cryptocurrency downtrend?
Bearish traders need to push BTC’s price below the 0.786 fib level with a second target of 1 [$27,302.0]. The third target below for bearish traders is 1.618 [$21,049.7].
The second BTC chart we’re looking at today is the BTC/USD 1W chart from Hekmachine. This chart was charted before yesterday’s weekly close. The chartist posits that BTC’s price is in an expanded flat correction pattern. If the chartist is correct, BTC’s price has already found its new low price.

Ethereum Founder, Vitalik Butterin, announced last week the merge event from PoW [Proof-of-Work] to PoS [Proof-of Stake] could take place as early as August of this year.
So, what will that mean for the price of Ether over the coming weeks and months as we tread deeper into 2022? Will that event be enough to reverse Ether’s price to the upside of the charts if the macro cryptocurrency market’s downtrend is still intact? Will the Merge actually take place in August?
