Crypto market looking for triggers

Market picture

The cryptocurrency market did not find the strength to accelerate and rolled back almost 2.3% on the day to $2.6 trillion, but that is still a gain of 3.5% in seven days. In other words, the market is holding on to its uptrend but needs drivers for further movement.

On the Bitcoin chart, a support line can be drawn through the lows from early March, the testing of which became more frequent in April.

Ethereum is slightly above its 50-day moving average. Staying below this line in early April should not be dramatised, as a similar thing happened in late January and early February, only whetting buyers’ appetite.
