- Bitcoin as a target for money facing a new equity sell-off.
- The second failed attempt at $10000 boosts the relevance of the level and sets it up as the level to beat.
- Sentiment improves by 10% but is one step behind a volatile market
Yesterday, the Bitcoin attempted again to overcome the resistance in its market dominance chart and fails. Yesterday's technical indicators point out that the bullish move has run out of steam.
Today, those same indicators are moving close to completing a bearish pattern that would carry Bitcoin's dominance level. But the technical pattern is not yet complete, so there is still a chance for a triumphant end to the Bitcoin, with Ethereum's permission.
The Ethereum network now has a chance to make up lost ground and gain momentum ahead of the release of the 2.0 version of the network engineered by Vitalyk Buterin.
But the threat of another delay in the delivery of the new version is already on the table.
Mr Buterin – a Canadian citizen but born in Russia in 1995 – stated in a recent interview that the date for the launch of the new version was set for July, and was immediately replied by the tesnet coordinator for ETH 2.0, Afri Schoedon, questioning this date.
As it could not be otherwise in an open ecosystem and decentralized collaboration, other project collaborators have also appeared who maintain that the delivery date is feasible.
The Ethreum's dominance chart shows a fragile structure with few nearby supports. On the resistance side, the situation changes a lot, and the simple moving average of 200 days limits any upward movement.
The sentiment indicator of the crypto ecosystem continues to wobble, and today is up 10% to level 44. The market mood is very volatile, a clear message of nervousness among all participants.

BTC/USD Daily Chart
The BTC/USD pair is currently trading at the price level of $9610. During the Asian session, the chart draws a bearish candlestick, but now in European time, the price is recovering and avoiding the bearish pattern for the time being.
The $10000 level resisted for the second time in a few days and is now at the resistance level critical to the development of the current uptrend.

The MACD on the daily chart could try today to undo the bearish cross or to move down again as it did last week. The indicator shows an ambiguous structure, and there is no visibility in the short term.
The DMI on the daily chart shows the bulls not having the strength to break the ADX line. Now they are moving down and confirm the bearish pattern that was triggered last week.
ETH/USD Daily Chart
