Bitcoin, Ethereum Wobble as AI Tokens Resist Cooling Crypto Market

Following a period of strong activity, the broader cryptocurrency market appears to be stabilizing as the week comes to a close. Major currencies like Bitcoin and Ethereum are showing relatively flat trading patterns, indicating a pause in their recent upward movement.

However, tokens linked to artificial intelligence (AI) continue to perform well, riding the momentum within the AI industry. Increased investor interest in AI-related digital assets is contributing to the continued strength of these tokens.

Notably, after Nvidia reported impressive earnings this week, traditional finance (tradfi) stocks associated with AI technology, such as NVDA, AMD, and MSFT on the Nasdaq, are all experiencing gains. Nvidia described this as a “tipping point” for AI.

Bitcoin started the day at $51,252 but has seen a slight drop to around $51,134 within the last 24 hours, representing a decrease of just under 1%. This sideways movement has been consistent since February 15, indicating a period of consolidation, as reported earlier by Decrypt.

The current position of Bitcoin below its EMA10 mark raises concerns about a potential strong correction. Falling below this critical threshold could suggest a shift in sentiment toward bearishness in the market.

Several market indicators suggest that a correction may already be underway. The RSI, which measures the strength of bulls over bears, has decreased from an exceptionally high 80 points to 66 points, indicating a move towards a more balanced market dynamic.

Additionally, the convergence of Bitcoin’s EMA10 and EMA55 suggests a narrowing gap between short-term and long-term buying performance. This trend indicates a cooling off period, with recent buyers not seeing the same returns as earlier market participants.

If the correction persists and the EMA55 crosses above the EMA10, it could signal a transition to a bearish trend, resulting in losses for newer buyers.

The current market sentiment is influenced by recent spot ETF approvals and the upcoming Bitcoin halving. The halving, which historically affects Bitcoin’s value every four years, could have significant implications for future market trends.

As for Ethereum, it opened the day at $2,970 but experienced a 1.4% drop, adjusting to $2,947 at the time of writing. This decline reflects a stronger intra-day movement compared to Bitcoin.

Although Ethereum showed a stronger bullish trend earlier, it has not maintained its momentum this week. The appearance of a Doji candlestick in yesterday’s trading session suggests a potential shift in market dynamics, indicating indecision among traders.

Despite the recent deceleration in Ethereum’s value growth, its weekly performance remains positive, with a 6% gain over the last seven days. However, this growth is more modest compared to previous weeks.

Overall, while short-term corrections may occur, the long-term outlook for Ethereum remains bullish, with market conditions supporting holding onto the coin.
