What Crypto Exchanges Are Saying About Current Market Scenario

Mudrex co-founder and CEO Edul Patel told ABP Live, “Profit booking was evident in the past 24 hours as Bitcoin almost slipped below $42,000. However, a quick bullish phase followed, propelling the price to $43,500 before consolidating just under $43,000. Bitcoin’s next hurdle stands at the $43,918 resistance level, with the earlier safety net at $42,510. Meanwhile, Ethereum has experienced steady gains, coupled with a significant 30 percent surge in trading volume over the last day. The overall market sentiment continues to lean towards a greedy outlook.”

CoinSwitch Markets Desk noted, “The crypto market remained in a rather tight range for another day even as BTC went up by 1.5%. However, the ETH/BTC pair seems to have bottomed out as ETH (+2.5%) continues to outperform BTC in a bid to be the next asset to get an ETF approval. In another news, a popular stablecoin TUSD lost its peg by 1.5% yesterday as people sold more than 440 million dollars of TUSD versus only 300 million dollars of buy orders. TUSD is yet to reclaim its peg back as it trades around the 0.99 dollar mark.”

Rajagopal Menon, Vice President, WazirX, said, “Bitcoin’s relative strength index has witnessed an uptick, signalling a shift towards a positive, bullish momentum. Anticipation surrounds the conclusion of Bitcoin’s consolidation phase, with predictions of a price rally exclusive to the pre-halving stage. Additionally, the recent price decline triggered by large BTC asset movements by whales is expected to stabilise, aligning with an overall improvement in the BTC market. Currently, Bitcoin faces resistance at the $43,000 mark, and a new resistance level is taking shape around $45,250.”

Sathvik Vishwanath, CEO and co-founder of Unocoin, said, “Recent developments have sparked bearish sentiment in the Bitcoin price prediction as the Bitcoin Miners Position Index (MPI) soared to 9.43 on January 12th. This spike in miner activity, which may indicate increased selling, has raised concerns among cryptocurrency enthusiasts. Last week saw a 15% selloff in BTC, but the market is now stabilizing around $41,600-$43,500. Technical analysis on January 16 revealed a key point at $43,220 with resistance at $44,384. The Relative Strength Index (RSI) at 45 and the 50-day EMA at 43,811 suggest a cautiously bearish outlook. Traders are waiting for a clear signal as to how Bitcoin is consolidating, highlighting the need to closely monitor critical levels.”

CoinDCX Research Team told ABP Live, “Over the past 24 hours, BTC has maintained stability, hovering around the $43,000 level. In contrast, ETH is displaying strength, outperforming and showing a bullish trend. BTC is consolidating, and ETH, after a brief consolidation, is on an upward trajectory towards resistance levels at $2,660 and $2,940. Altcoins are exhibiting a mixed performance, with tokens associated with ETH showcasing strength, while others experience a decline.”
