Altcoin Market Cap Suggests Alts are Not Done Increasing

2 min read

The Altcoin Market Cap (ALTCAP) has bounced at the long-term $591 Billion support area three times since May 23.

It followed this up with a breakout from a descending resistance line, indicating that it will likely continue heading higher.

ALTCAP bounces at long-term support

ALTCAP has been moving downwards since an all-time high of $1.49 Trillion was reached on May 12. 

The decrease took it thrice to the $591 Billion support area, which is the 0.618 Fib retracement support level. Once there, ALTCAP created three long lower wicks, a sign of buying pressure. 

Despite the wicks, technical indicators in the weekly time-frame are still bearish. The MACD is decreasing and is nearly negative. The RSI has fallen below 50 while the Stochastic oscillator has made a bearish cross.

Since the weekly time-frame looks relatively bearish, a look at the daily one is required in order to determine the direction of the next move.

Future movement

The daily chart provides a more bullish outlook. 

The two final touches of the previously outlined long-term support area were combined with bullish divergences in the MACD, RSI & Stochastic oscillator. This effectively created a double bottom pattern. 

ALTCAP has been increasing since the second bottom and broke out from a descending resistance line shortly afterwards.

The closest resistance areas are at $934 Billion and $1.04 Trillion. These are the 0.382 and 0.5 Fib retracement resistance levels, respectively.
