Despite some cryptocurrencies which are stagnating, the sentiment in the crypto market remains bullish in October, especially in the second half. Bitcoin made new all-time highs ATH at $67,000, while the rest of the market joined it later on and some cryptos are looking to break above the recent highs.
Avalanche Daily Chart Analysis
The 50 SMA held as support for AVAX/USD
As shown from the daily chart above, Avalanche had its first strong bullish run in February and started retreating since then. The second bullish leg in August ended around the same area, below $60 which turned into a resistance zone for AVAX/USD and now it seems to have turned into support.
In September we saw another strong bullish rally, despite the bearish sentiment in the crypto market, showing resilience once again for Avalanche. The new high came at almost $80, but during the first two weeks of October, we saw another pullback lower. The 50 SMA (yellow) held as support for this cryptocurrency and the price bounced off of it, now trading around $70 and heading for new highs.
Polkadot Daily Chart Analysis
DOT/USD trading in the bullish zone
Polkadot has also seen some strong buying pressure since July, although it hasn’t been able to place new highs since May. It climbed from the bearish zone in August, while during September Polkadot traded in a range with the 200 SMA (purple) and the 50 SMA (yellow) acting as support.
Now, the price is trading in the bullish zone, after making a break higher this month. Moving averages haven’t caught up with the price yet, so once they do, DOT/USD will probably resume the bullish trend again. The previous high at $40 will probably turn into support as well now, which would be a good place to buy Polkadot on a retreat lower.
Terra LUNA Daily Chart Analysis
Buyers remain in control for LUNA/USD
Terra LUNA placed a high in March this year, at around $22, while forming a base around $4-$5 after the crash in May. The trend reversed in July for LUNA/USD and picked up considerable speed in August, leaving behind all moving averages. In the last two months, the trend has slowed but it keeps progressing with both highs and lows moving higher.
During September we saw two strong selloffs but the March high at $22 turned into support. In October, the 50 SMA (yellow) has taken up that job and is pushing the lows higher. Now the target is the high from earlier this month just below $50, which will probably be taken out soon, as Bitcoin progresses higher.
