The recent Bitcoin price rebound does not mean the cryptocurrency will be heading back to its all-time highs of near $20,000 any time soon, according to Kevin Dennean, tech analyst at UBS. “The argument here is that Bitcoin has gone through its bubble phase and is ready to rise phoenix-like from the ashes just as other assets and indices did in the past,” he wrote in a research note to clients.

However, it seems LTC has now started to consolidate closer to its 200-day EMA. Looking at the chart above, the 200-day EMA has already crossed both the 50 and 20-day EMAs, and LTC is still trading above that support level, which sits at around $68.

Since my analysis last week, Ethereum has declined below its 200-day EMA. After a weekend dip across the cryptocurrency markets, the only coin that seemed to recover was Bitcoin Cash (potentially due to Binance delisting BSV, which seems to have turned investors to BCH).

Daily trading volume is now higher than $10 billion, which is still quite bullish compared to yearly lows. Ethereum’s market cap stands at around $13 billion, making it the second-largest cryptocurrency in terms of market cap.
