Expert Take
Bitcoin hovered above the $47,000 level, continuing the winning streak for another consecutive day. The momentum signals a positive upward trend as buyers have actively traded over the weekend, breaking the three-month-long downward trend, said Edul Patel, CEO and Co-founder of Mudrex.

Most altcoins have witnessed decent growth, while Waves has risen 49%, outperforming major cryptos, he added.

Bitcoin and major altcoins have been able to hold their gains despite the geopolitical worries as the regulatory proceedings are supporting the sentiments, which are overall improving, said Kunal Jagdale, Founder, BitsAir Exchange.

“Some market metrics are signalling some fresh positive signals. Absence of any major negatives is empowering the bulls in the crypto space,” he added.

Tech View by Giottus Crypto Exchange
Layer-2 blockchain Polygon (MATIC) is indicating it may be back to bullish mood this week. The coin, which dipped to a low of $1.24 in February, flipped a trendline resistance at $1.53 earlier this week. It is now trading at an important long-term resistance level of $1.71.

MATIC has also formed a classic cup and handle pattern that may see it retest a local support level at $1.67 before targeting $1.77 and $1.81.

Chart-Matic (4)ET CONTRIBUTORSProvided the crypto market remains bullish, MATIC may continue upwards towards psychological resistance at $2. Post this level, important resistances at $2.1 and $2.44 come into play. MATIC has rejected $2.1 level strongly in the past.

However, a reclamation will ensure a high probability of $2.45 over the longer term. Those looking to take long positions can enter once these important levels are broken and held, while those already in long positions may want to take some profits at these levels to secure gains.

Major levels:
Support: $1.67, $1.71
Resistance: $1.77, $1.81, $2
