Analysts predict a bullish 2023, but the cryptocurrency market’s signals and sentiments suggest otherwise. Most altcoins are now battling with marginal gains, while Bitcoin is attempting to break through the $17k barrier.
Amid the ongoing bear market, a cryptocurrency expert has forecasted what’s next for Ethereum (ETH) and a few other altcoins. In a recent interview with Scott Melker, the cryptocurrency analyst Cheds said that ETH has a “clean trigger level” between $1,420 and $1,430, at which time it will have overcome both the previous support level and the 200-day moving average (MA).
As for XRP, the analyst said that one has to follow through. If the bulls don’t bounce here at $0.3416, that’s no Bueno.
“That’s a great start to some type of a small-to-medium-type of a move. Maybe up to like $0.38 to $0.39. And if it doesn’t, then you’re in real trouble, because look at the long lower shadow. That’s buyers jumping in, rejecting lower prices, getting back up above lost support,” he added.
What’s next for DOGE, ADA, SOL, and MATIC?
For the popular meme-coin Doge, the analyst said,
“It’s the classic rocket ship slow bleed. Losing the MA-200, losing support here. I mean I think it’s going to about [$0.05] or [$0.057, $0.058]. Probably range lows.”
Talking about Ethereum rival Cardano, in his opinion, it could be worthwhile to short it if ADA once more reaches the $0.30 range. Cheds stressed that “the biggest bounces come in downtrends” with regard to Solana (SOL). The analyst claims he has a “positive” feeling above $11.50.
According to Cheds, Polygon (MATIC), a blockchain scaling solution, has to maintain support. He said that the $0.72 level is a crucial holding level for the asset, and about $1.06 is the next possible level to be on the lookout for.
