In the latest edition of the Crypto Finance House View, we cover the following topics:
Market Review & Outlook
The current state of the crypto market can be described as calm with low trading volumes, and generally decreased liquidity. Historically, such lows in trading volumes have also coincided with cyclical market bottoms. Risks appear to be skewed to the upside due to low voluntary supply against a potential rise in demand, which could be triggered by a pivot in central bank policy, supported by a slowdown in inflation in most developed economies. Additionally, the seasonality of returns suggests that the second half of the calendar year looks to be more favourable in terms of risk adjusted returns. Moreover, options markets reflect positive sentiment, with the implied bitcoin volatility index currently at its lowest level since the summer of 2022. Overall, we believe that the environment remains favourable for investors, and pullbacks in markets should be used as buying opportunities.

BTC/USD consolidation continues after the neckline of the minor reversal pattern was under attack multiple times. Nevertheless, the market showed strength and successfully defended itself against the attacks: buyers jumped in and brought the price back up to levels above the neckline. The big picture: the inverse head and shoulder (potential bottom) formation with the neckline at USD 25k is still valid. The long-term RSI model has not changed and still indicates the potential start of the next big cycle. The relative strength of ETH vs. BTC is currently on the resistance line (price and RSI) and there are no clear signals on the charts. A conservative view holds with the trend (in favour of BTC), while an aggressive view anticipates a break in favour of ETH.
