Price analysis for 7/3 SPX, DXY, BTC, ETH, BNB, XRP, ADA, DOGE, SOL, LTC.

The United States equity markets have witnessed a solid year so far. The Nasdaq Composite has soared 31.7%, its best first-half performance since 1983. Similarly, the S&P 500 Index’s (SPX) 15.9% gain is its best first half since 2019. This suggests that risky assets remain in demand.

In the cryptocurrency markets, Bitcoin ( BTC ) has led the recovery from the front, rising 20% in Q2 2023. An encouraging sign is that the rise has not tempted the Bitcoin hodlers to book profits. Glassnode’s illiquid supply change metric is near cycle highs , indicating hodler conviction.

Usually, the leader is the first to emerge from a bear market. If the rally sustains, the sentiment among the traders improves and they start looking at other buying opportunities. After Bitcoin’s rally, the altcoins have started to show signs of life. If the trend continues, several altcoins may rally over the next few weeks.

Will the U.S. equities markets continue their march higher? Could Bitcoin and the major altcoins continue their recovery? Let’s analyze the charts to find out.

S&P 500 Index price analysis

The S&P 500 Index bounced off the breakout level of 4,325 on June 26, indicating that the bulls have flipped the level into support.

Buyers continued their purchases at higher levels, which pushed the index above the immediate resistance at 4,448. This indicates the resumption of the uptrend. The bears are likely to pose a strong challenge at 4,500, but the likelihood of this level holding is low. If the index rises above this resistance, the rally could reach 4,650.

If bulls want to prevent the up move, they will have to quickly yank the price below 4,325. If they do that, the selling could pick up momentum and the index may plummet to 4,200.

U.S. Dollar Index price analysis

The bulls pushed the U.S. Dollar Index (DXY) above the 20-day exponential moving average (EMA) of 103 on June 28, indicating strength.

The bears tried to pull the price back below the moving averages on June 30, but the bulls did not relent. This suggests that lower levels are attracting buyers. The bulls will then try to push the price to the downtrend line.

Contrary to this assumption, if the price turns down and breaks below the moving averages, it will suggest that bears are selling on minor rallies. That could pull the price down to the immediate support at 102.

Bitcoin price analysis

The long tail on Bitcoin’s July 2 candlestick shows that the bulls are buying the intraday dips. The buyers will try to strengthen their position by driving and sustaining the price above the overhead resistance at $31,000.

If they manage to do that, the BTC/USDT pair could pick up momentum and start its northward march toward $40,000. The $32,400 level may act as a minor roadblock, but it is likely to be crossed.

The rising 20-day EMA ($29,446) and the relative strength index (RSI) near the overbought zone indicate an advantage to buyers. Sellers will have to sink the price below the 20-day EMA to gain the upper hand in the near term. The pair may then drop to the 50-day simple moving average (SMA) of $27,704.

Ether price analysis

The bears attempted to push Ether (ETH) towards the 20-day EMA ($1,866) on July 2, but the long tail on the candlestick indicates that the bulls are buying during minor dips.

The 20-day EMA has turned upwards and the RSI is above 62, suggesting that the bulls have the advantage. There is some resistance at $2,000, but it is likely to be overcome. The ETH/USDT pair may then rally towards the overhead resistance zone between $2,142 and $2,200. Sellers are expected to strongly defend this zone.

This positive view will be invalidated in the near term if the price declines from $2,000 and falls below the moving averages. In that case, the pair may continue to trade within the range of $1,626 and $2,000 for some more time.

BNB price analysis

BNB (BNB) rose above the 20-day EMA ($245) on July 1, indicating a reduction in selling pressure.

The 20-day EMA has flattened out and the RSI has climbed close to the midpoint, suggesting that the BNB/USDT pair may consolidate between $220 and $265 for a few more days. If the price remains above the 20-day EMA, the pair may rise towards the overhead resistance at $265. The bears are expected to strongly defend this level.

Alternatively, if the price turns down and breaks below the 20-day EMA, it will indicate that every recovery attempt is being sold. In that case, the pair may drop to the strong support at $220.

XRP price analysis

The bulls are trying to push XRP (XRP) above the 20-day EMA ($0.48), but the bears are aggressively defending this level.

If buyers prevent the price from slipping much below the current level, it will increase the chances of a breakout above the 20-day EMA. The XRP/USDT pair may then start its upward movement towards $0.53 and then $0.58.

Conversely, if the price sharply declines from the current level, it will indicate strong selling pressure near the 20-day EMA. The bears will need to push the price below $0.44 to gain control. In that case, the pair may drop to $0.41.

Cardano price analysis

The bears successfully defended the $0.30 resistance level on June 30, but they were unable to keep Cardano (ADA) below the 20-day EMA ($0.29). This suggests that every minor dip is being bought.

The 20-day EMA has flattened out and the RSI is close to the midpoint, indicating that the bears may be losing their grip. Buyers will attempt to strengthen their position by pushing the price above $0.30. If successful, it will signal the start of a strong relief rally. The 50-day SMA ($0.32) may act as a resistance, but it is likely to be overcome.

This positive view will be invalidated in the near term if the price sharply declines from the current level. In that case, the pair may remain within the range of $0.30 to $0.24 for some more time.

Dogecoin price analysis

Dogecoin (DOGE) surged above the overhead resistance at $0.07 on July 1, but the long wick on the candlestick indicates selling at higher levels.

The failure to sustain the price above the overhead resistance indicates that the DOGE/USDT pair remains stuck inside the range between $0.06 and $0.07. Buyers will have to push and sustain the price above $0.07 to signal the start of a sustained recovery. The pair may then rally to $0.08.

On the downside, the $0.06 level remains the key support to watch out for. A break and close below this level could open the doors for a further decline to $0.05.

Solana price analysis

Solana ( SOL ) has been trading between the 20-day EMA ($17.61) and the downtrend line for the past three days. This suggests that the bears are selling near the downtrend line and the bulls are buying the dips.

The 20-day EMA has started to slope up and the RSI has risen into positive territory, indicating that bulls are in the driver’s seat. That increases the possibility of a break above the downtrend line. If that happens, the SOL/USDT pair could rally to $22 and thereafter to $24.

If the price turns down sharply from the current level and breaks below the 20-day EMA, it will suggest that the sentiment remains negative and traders are selling on rallies. That could sink the pair to the $16.18 to $15.28 support zone.

Litecoin price analysis

Litecoin ( LTC ) broke above the overhead resistance at $106 on June 30, and the bulls have managed to sustain the price above this level.

However, the bears have not given up, and they are trying to stall the up move at the next resistance at $115. If bulls sustain the price above $106, it will enhance the prospects of the continuation of the uptrend. The LTC/USDT pair may then soar to the overhead zone between $134 and $144.

The first support on the downside is $106. If this level gives way, it will indicate that the short-term bulls may be booking profits. That could drag the price down to the 20-day EMA ($93).
