Bitcoin value analysis
On Wednesday Bitcoin’s value rallied during the day’s second 12HR candle after the Federal Reserve’s announcement of a quarter point interest rate hike.
Despite the increase, BTC’s price closed at its second highest level of 2023 after the news of a second consecutive meeting where The Fed’s rate increases slowed. Bullish BTC market participants reacted to that news and BTC’s price was lifted by $601.5 on Wednesday by bulls.
We’re beginning this Thursday with a fresh look at the BTC/USD 1M chart below from BGMind_Control. At the time of writing, BTC’s price is trading between the 1 fibonacci level [$15,460.00] and the 0.618 fib level [$27,376.12].
The overhead targets for bullish Bitcoin traders on the monthly timescale are 0.618, 0.5 [$32,660.99], and a full retracement at 0 [$69,000] to BTC’s 2021 cycle top high.
Bearish Bitcoin traders are on the opposite spectrum and aiming at firstly sending BTC’s price back down to retest the asset’s most integral level of inflection [$19,891]. If they are successful in pushing BTC’s price below that level their secondary aim is the 1 fibonacci level.
The Fear and Greed Index is 60 Greed and is -4 from yesterday’s reading of 56 Greed.

Ether’s price also marked-up during Wednesday’s trading session and when traders concluded for the day, ETH’s price was +$56.93.
The second project we’re analyzing this Thursday is Ethereum and we’re looking at the daily chart on the left and the 4HR time frame below on the chart positioned below on the right.
KlejdiCuni believes that Ether’s price is working on a Head and Shoulders pattern on both timescales.
If the chartist is correct, the target for bearish ETH traders on the daily time frame is $1,372.91.
On the 4HR timescale the H&S pattern looks a bit scuffed and isn’t as distinguishable as on the daily time frame. However, if the pattern does play out, the target on ETH on the 4HR chart is also back down to retest the $1,372.91 level.
Ether’s Moving Averages: 5-Day [$1,584.64], 20-Day [$1,502.20], 50-Day [$1,340.57], 100-Day [$1,348.50], 200-Day [$1,521.24], Year to Date [$1,466.39].

Cardano’s price climbed $0.0065 on Wednesday and is at a critical level for market participants.
The ADA/USD 1D chart below from Maxi0070 shows ADA’s price bumping up against the upper bound of a long-term descending channel.
Bullish ADA traders need to crack the $0.4 level to break out on the daily timescale. Of course, they’ll want candle close confirmation on that time frame to signal further strength to market participants.
Conversely, bearish ADA traders want to reject bulls and retest the heartline of the daily timescale’s structure at $0.235.
