We saw a rollercoaster of price action over the past seven days as Bitcoin went to set a new all-time high slightly below $62K, only to retrace to about $53K a couple of days later. Most of the altcoins followed suit, though some came out of it better than others.
Bitcoin is up by a small 2% over the past week as it trades at the $59,000 level. The cryptocurrency had surged higher last weekend to set a new ATH at $61,781. It was trading inside an ascending price channel for the majority of March until it hit the ATH over the weekend.
From there, Bitcoin started to fall at the beginning of the week. Initially, it found support at $55,465 (.382 Fib) on Monday but continued to spike lower into $53,500 (.5 Fib) on Tuesday. Luckily, the daily candle for Tuesday closed above $55,465, and it allowed BTC to rebound from there,
Yesterday, BTC spiked higher to $60,000 but eventually closed the daily candle at $58,000. Today, it is now pushing $59,000.
Looking ahead, the first level of strong resistance lies at $60,000. This is followed by $61,780 (ATH price) and $62,500. Additional resistance lies at $65,000, $66,000, and $67,500.

Ethereum pretty much moved sideways this week as it trades along with the support at $1755. The coin was trading at this level last Friday but managed to spike above $ 1900 over the weekend. However, as Bitcoin started to drop on Monday, Etheruem also headed lower until finding support at $1755.
It has now traded between $1755 and $1875 for the past fortnight (besides the weekend spike higher) and must break this range to dictate the next direction for the market.
Looking ahead, the first level of resistance lies at $1875 (1.414 Fib Extension – yellow). This is followed by resistance at $1900, $1960 (1.272 Fib Extension & All-time high day closing price), $2000, and $2036 (ATH).

Unfortunately, it could not close a daily candle above the 200-day EMA at around 0.0321 BTC and ended up rolling over the past few days.
