What Crypto Exchanges Are Saying About Current Market Scenario

Mudrex co-founder and CEO Edul Patel told ABP Live, “During the weekend, Bitcoin traded at the $43,000 level, with market participants eyeing Bitcoin ETFs approval. BTC is facing resistance at $43,900, and a breakthrough could lead to a continued upward movement to $44,200. The market is currently in a state of equilibrium, with neither bulls nor bears taking the lead. In this scenario, Bitcoin is likely to trade within the narrow range of $43,000 and $44,500 in the coming days. Ethereum is following a similar trajectory to Bitcoin, and the approval of Bitcoin ETFs might pave the way for regulatory clarity on Ethereum ETFs. The upcoming week is anticipated to be volatile, especially with the release of US CPI data on Thursday.”

Parth Chaturvedi, Investments Lead, CoinSwitch Ventures, said, “US Bitcoin exchange-traded funds (ETFs) seem poised for imminent launch as the exchanges that will list them have submitted revised documents, indicating anticipation of approval from the US Securities and Exchange Commission in the near future. Resonating the positive sentiment, VanEck, an asset management firm, has pledged to allocate 5 percent of its fund’s potential profits to support Bitcoin developers at Brink, contingent upon approval.”

Rajagopal Menon, Vice President, WazirX, said, “Bitcoin (BTC) demonstrates resilience around the $43.4k mark; however, recent analysis suggests caution, hinting it might not reach a new ATH soon. The broader crypto market presents varied sentiments, witnessing altcoins like Shiba Inu (SHIB) navigating complexities. As SHIB’s address count rises, it reflects the burgeoning interest and potential market dynamics, emphasising the need for vigilant monitoring amidst evolving crypto landscapes.”

Sathvik Vishwanath, CEO and co-founder of Unocoin, said, “Bitcoin is at a critical point, trading at $43,600 , with potential ETF approvals from BlackRock and Grayscale fueling excitement. VanEck’s adviser suggests that ETFs could overcome unit bias and open the door to wider adoption. A surprise $1.17 million transaction to the genesis Bitcoin wallet raises speculation of Nakamoto’s involvement or a publicity stunt. SEC rulings on ETF applications with impact on institutional engagement and market dynamics are expected. Bitcoin’s recent drop to $42,125 reflects continued volatility with crucial support at $39,891. Technical analysis shows resistance at $44,200 and potential upside momentum, but RSI signals overbought conditions. Bitcoin’s trajectory continues to be subject to rapid change due to the cryptocurrency’s inherent volatility.”

Shivam Thakral, CEO of BuyUcoin, said, “The crypto market witnessed profit booking by traders due to which Bitcoin dipped to the $43,000 level while Ethereum slipped to the $2,181 mark. The latest market rally may have triggered profit booking and traders may have created fresh positions to prepare for the next cycle. The market sentiment is extremely positive as there is a lot of news around Bitcoin ETF approval by the SEC. Bitcoin approval will be the biggest market movimentar in 2024 and make do dedo assets mainstream across the globe. The market is expected to remain volatile in the coming weeks owing to the macroeconomic factors.” 

CoinDCX Research Team told ABP Live, “During the weekend, the overall crypto market displayed a slight bearish sentiment. BTC traded sideways, currently positioned below the key resistance level at $44,300 and above the incline trendline support at $42,600. The rising BTC dominance contributed to bearish trends in altcoins. ETH witnessed a break below an incline trendline support and is also below the 20EMA Daily, indicating a bearish stance. The support level for ETH is at $2,131, with resistance at $2,390. Notably, investors are actively speculating on the potential approval of the BTC spot ETF on January 10.”
