Recently, on the 16th of January, 2023, Thailand Securities Exchange Commission issued fresh rules in its continued efforts to protect investors' assets and build confidence in the crypto space. It comes right after Bitcoin surged above $20k. However, is this enough to kickstart a full recovery for crypto coins?
How Deep Can the 'DIP' Get?
2022-11-11 • Updated
Over the last few weeks, a lot has happened in the crypto space and all does not seem to be well anymore for many. Usually, the word 'dip' refers to a slight retracement in price before the continuation of a trend, however, what we've seen so far on several crypto charts suggests otherwise. Today we will take a look at a few cryptocurrencies in hope of figuring out the nearest areas of support from whence markets may experience new bullish impulse.
The chart above shows BTCUSD (Bitcoin) currently trading below the SMA-50 on the Monthly timeframe and approaching a Rally-Base-Rally demand zone around the $11k price zone. In my opinion, this is the nearest reliable area of support for possible consideration of a fresh bull run. If this support fails, the price could slip well lower into the $7k region.
In the case of Ethereum, price is still trading within range of the 50-Moving-Average. However, in spite of the moving average support, chances are that price slips further down into the $600 region. The major determinant of price outcomes, in this case, would be the price action observed between the $670 and $360 price marks.
Litecoin on the weekly timeframe can be seen trading in a range between $75 and $40. There's also a trendline resistance that has just recently been touched for the third time.
A closer look at the daily timeframe shows that price may be aiming to exit the trading range once the trendline resistance is broken.
Interesting times lie ahead for cryptocurrencies as the next couple of weeks could be pivotal in deciding the fortunes of the several million investors within the space. Most of the setups above indicate the possibility of a slightly extended "dip", hence, caution is advised.

Let's start off with a look at the Daily timeframe on Bitcoin. We currently see price reacting to the rally-base-rally demand zone between the 15,600 - 14,300 price area. Price also seems to have found support off the trendline support as marked in the image above. Interestingly, this means the overall bias on BTCUSD is Bullish.
Central Bank Digital Currencies (CBDCs) are virtual national money. The idea of creating such currencies came to the authorities after the success of cryptocurrencies, which also exist only in digital form.

Last year was tough for the Japanese yen. USDJPY gained more than 30% over 2022, striking above 150 in October. While anticipation of slower Fed rate hikes pulled the pair below the 130 level at the start of 2023, the speculations over the destiny of BOJ’s yield control policy grabbed the attention of the Japanese assets in the middle of January. What lies ahead for traders of the Japanese yen?
