After tough weeks that reminded us of scenes from Kill Bill, we got a positive week in the markets.The green color returned to the cryptocurrency arena and there were even rumors that some traders were observed having FOMO positions. As of this writing, the Crypto market is worth $228 billion, with Bitcoin’s dominance against the alternative coins at 53%. This is a moderate increase which brings Bitcoin back to its natural position as the controlling shareholder of the market.
However, despite the increasing dominance of Bitcoin, the alternative coins scene is also recovering from a slow scramble after Bitcoin raised his head to over $7,000. In this context (alternative coins such as) Nano rose 100% in the past few days, IOTA rose 42% this past week and Dash rose 25% in the past 24 hours. It seems that the traders and investors in the market have received a confidence injection because despite the green candle color the market is still unstable and there is no significant reason for it to rise. There is a good reason to remain cautious and not to enter into FOMO state. The volume of trading in the Crypto market is around $12 billion, which is important to pay attention to, because if new money enters the market, the volume will appear to be growing. Also, the volume of realizations is an important figure that can help us understand where the market is headed. The moment it appears that the situation is beginning to stabilize, the sharp declines having stopped then its a good time to examine the markets.

The resistance which played in the past week between $6,500 to $6,800, was breached last night (these are also support areas as of now) and the exchange rate is around $,7031. The graph moves within $7,500- $8,000 zones and expected to be interesting in the coming days.
Against the dollar, the floor remains at $250 and the exchange rate stabilized around $280. It traded not far from $287 with resistance at $300 in that range.
Against Bitcoin, it traded around 0.04 BTC. These support levels in this resistance range were at -0.047 BTC which seems to not be good trading against Bitcoin. Again we returned to the support areas seen in December.
Against the dollar, it was a stable week. It traded around $550 while supporting this range around $510 and resistance was at $600.
Against Bitcoin, the trend line continues to trade around 0.078 BTC, and it seems that the support levels since December are leaning further down around 0.068 BTC. Resistance is difficult to determine in the descending trend, but if we look at the past on the chart, it appears that 0.09 BTC was the last attempt to break out.
Against a record dollar of $17.7 and a floor of $0.74, a figure seen only in crypto, trading volume rose this week compared to the past. It appears to be the highest trading volume since March where the rate reached a record $17.
At the time of writing, it traded around around $ 3.4 with the resistance at $3.9. Support in this range, at around 30% risk, is at $2.
Against Bitcoin, a similar graph is also here. A significant amount of volume has entered and it seems that the change in trend began trading around 0.00048 BTC. The resistance is at 0.00055 BTC with support in this range at 0.0003 BTC. We also saw a floor around 0.0001 BTC and a peak around at 0.0015 BTC.
Against the Dollar, a weekly chart is trading around $0.11. These support areas have also seen in recent weeks that the price is looking for resistance floor at $0.15.
A weekly chart appears to be approaching the ground and trading around 1600 SAT with support at 1400 SAT and resistance is at 1800 SAT.
