Bitcoin’s price closed above the $17k level for the fifth consecutive day and when trading concluded for Monday, BTC’s price was +$119.
The BTC/USD 1W chart by Blorenz is the first chart we’re delving into for this Tuesday. At the time of writing, BTC’s price is trading between the 0.5 fibonacci level [$14,528.63] and the 0.618 fib level [$20,880.50].
Bullish BTC market participants have been unable to lift BTC’s price above the $17k level recently but they’ll need to crack the $18k threshold firstly on their way to test the 0.618 fib level or further downside may be imminent. The targets above the 0.618 fib level are 0.786,[$34,994.64], 1 [$67,556.46] and the 1.272 fib level [$155,867.48] on the weekly timescale.
At variance with the bullish plot are bearish traders that want to continue their larger move to the downside. After controlling BTC’s price action for the majority of 2022, bearish traders are aiming at continuing that trend in 2023. Their targets below on BTC are the 0.5 fib level, 0.382 [$10,109.00], and a full retracement at 0 [$3,124.51] which was the bottom for BTC’s price during the previous bear market.

The second chart we’re looking at today is the ETH/USD 1D chart below from SierrasTrades. Ether’s price continued to consolidate above the $1,200 level during Monday’s trading session.
The targets for ETH bulls to the upside are 0.382 [$1,302.56], 0.5 [$1,374.05], 0.618 [$1,445.55] 0.786 [$1,547.34], and the 1 fib level [$1,677.00].
Those that believe ETH’s price has yet to bottom for this bear market have a primary aim of sending ETH’s price back below the $1,044 level. If they achieve that aim, bearish Ether market participants then will take aim at ETH’s multi-year low of $883.62.
If they’re successful in making a new low on ETH for this bear market, their ultimate goal will be a 90% plus reset on Ether’s price as that would match the historical trend for the asset’s price in bear markets. A reset on ETH of that size would send the asset’s price below the $500 level again for the first time since November of 2020.
