Bitcoin Technical Analysis
After two days of low volatility in bitcoin trading, the bulls look to confirm their lead on April 30.
The 20-day EMA ($28,783) has started rising gradually, and the Relative Strength Index is in the positive territory, suggesting that the path of least resistance is up.
The 50-day SMA ($28,026) is a key support to watch. If the BTC price falls below this level, the bear will see an opportunity and attempt to sink the pair to $25,250. Buyers are likely to defend the $27,000 to $25,250 area vigorously.
Solana Price Analysis
The bulls prevented the Solana tradeoff, which fell to $22, from returning below the downtrend line in the latter part of the correction, indicating a weaker demand level.
The buyers will try to return the price to the resistance at $27.12. This change remains a key resistance to watch in the short term because if the pull clears the price, the SOL/USDT pair could accelerate toward $39.
Cosmos Price Analysis
The long tail in cosmos ATOM drops to $11.32. The April 26 candlestick displays the bull fiercely defending $10.20 support.
The buyers have moved the price above the MA and will try to lunge to the downtrend line. This change is an important level to watch.
