📈  Weekly BTC and ETH Overview

After the Grayscale victory against the SEC, Bitcoin experienced a notable price surge rebounding strongly from a crucial support level. Nonetheless, there is still potential for a bearish price drop if the price stays below the 200-day moving average. For Ethereum, this week, the price reached the pivotal $1,750 threshold but ultimately struggled to sustain that position, encountering significant downside rejection. Analysts suspect that if ETH breaches the immediate $1,650 support level, it could pave the way for a more substantial decline toward the $1,400 region.

BTC is trading at $26.06K when writing, down 4.23% in the last 24 hours. Similarly, ETH is trading at $1.64K, down 3.6% in the previous 24 hours.
