Bitcoin (BTC)

On April 1st, BTC moved above the $59,400 area. It has been struggling to do this since March 17. 

Currently, it is in the process of validating the area as support. 

Short-term indicators are bullish. The MACD is gradually moving upwards, and the RSI has broken out from a descending resistance line. 

BTC is expected to gradually move towards a new all-time high price.

Ethereum (ETH)

ETH had been following a descending resistance line since Feb. 20, when it reached an all-time high price of $2036.

On March 31, it broke out from this resistance line. 

Technical indicators are bullish. Both the RSI & MACD are increasing. 

If ETH continues to increase, the token will find the next resistance area at $2500.

Technical indicators in the daily time-frame are bullish.

Bitcoin Cash (BCH)

BCH has lagged considerably in March, failing even to get close to its Feb. highs. 

However, on March 29, it moved above a descending resistance line in place since the highs in Feb. 

Afterward, the MACD gave a bullish reversal signal, and the Stochastic oscillator made a bullish cross. 

Furthermore, the RSI crossed above 50. 

Currently, BCH is approaching the $591 resistance level. The area is both the 0.5 Fib retracement of the previous decrease and a horizontal resistance area. 

If it manages to break out, the next resistance would be found at $775.


On Feb. 20, IOTA reached a high of $1.50 and decreased immediately afterward. The next unsuccessful breakout attempt validated the $1.50 area as resistance. 

After purportedly breaking out on March 23, IOTA fell back below this area before reclaiming it once more. 

This is a very bullish development that indicates the price is likely to move upwards.

Both the RSI & MACD have generated hidden bullish divergence, a strong sign of trend continuation.

The wave count suggests that IOTA has just completed a running flat correction as part of wave four (white). 

The two most likely targets for the top of the movement is found at $2.25 and $2.90.

Basic Attention Token (BAT)

BAT has been increasing since March 25, following an ascending support line. 

Currently, it is making the third attempt at moving above the $2.20 area. This has created an ascending triangle, which is considered a bullish pattern.

Both the RSI & MACD are increasing, supporting the breakout possibility. 

A movement that travels the entire height of the pattern would take BAT to a new all-time high of $1.45.

Swipe (SXP)

Similar to IOTA, SXP has potentially completed a running flat correction.

In addition, both the MACD & RSI have turned bullish. 

If correct, this would take SXP well into a new all-time high price.
