Until 18:00 UTC, the pair was trading sideways between 34,500 and 35,000, according to the exchange rate on CEX.IO. Starting from 18:00 UTC, the pair attempted another upswing and rose to 36,000 at around 20:00 UTC.  In the second spike of the day BTC/USD rose above the 20-period SMA on the 4-hour timeframe but remained well below the 50-period one.

The local recovery that took place in BTC/USD on 13th January shows a concentration of buying volumes at around 34,000. This handle can remain a level of support for a couple of days but may get broken under the selling pressure of corrective price action until the end of the week of 11th January. The level of 36,470 presently remains a local resistance level which can act as a driver the bearish price action toward 31,000.


ETH/USD opened the trading session of 13th January at 1,045.2 to 988.8, according to the exchange rate on CEX.IO. From 01:00 to 08:00 UTC, the pair was in an upside phase and rose to 1,076. In the upswing, the pair rose above the 20-period and the 50-period SMAs on the hourly timeframe.

At 20:00 UTC, the pair also closed the 4-hour candlestick above the 20-period SMA.

The local ETH/USD price range reduced on 12th and 13th January along with the volatility. This may be a sign of a near price breakout. A local support level has formed at 1,040, but it may be broken soon, considering the dominance of selling sentiment in the pair. If the level gets broken down, the next support level may be found at 970.

With a less certain market after the sharp drop of 11th January, the ETH/USD price may steady at 970 until the end of the week of 11th January. And more selling volumes may be required to send the price to the 2.618 Fibonacci level at 906.4.
