- It is very likely that the beginning of the next decade will be defined in the last days of the current one.
- Top cryptos show technical indicators turning upwards despite prevailing weakness.
- It is strongly recommended to use protection stops due to the large potential falls of the current moment.
This week is the first of the last month of this decade is being painted gray for cryptocurrencies, according to a broad consensus of analysts.
And precisely because of the dates, I consider it appropriate to carry out a test of what could happen to the BTC/USD pair in the remainder of the decade and the beginning of what could be new “Roaring Twenties.”
The wide-angle analysis allows us to detect a guiding trend line that begins at the end of May 2016 and which has served as a reference in the phases of price correction after historical highs.
This trend line would cross with the price of the BTC/USD pair at around $6,250 (blue dotted lines) and would indicate a critical first buying entry point.
At this point of purchase, the placement of the safety stop is complicated as there is a good chance that the BTC/USD pair will make a bearish extension to the lower parallel trend line at the price level of $5,500 (red dotted line).
If this bearish extension scenario were to occur, the stop point would be a little below $5,000.
The ETH/BTC pair has been in a bearish trend since June 17 and in the next few days could face for the third time the bearish line.
The projection varies according to the possible behavior of the ETH/BTC pair in the short term:
– If the current bullish momentum continues, the meeting point is approximately mid-December.
– If the ETH/BTC pair loses strength and moves sideways, the possible cross would happen around Christmas Day.
– If Ethereum loses its relative strength with Bitcoin and moves below the price level of 0.019, the scenario would project beyond the beginning of the next decade.

The MACD on the daily chart shows a possible bearish rejection profile after a first attempt to cross upwards. This typical pattern of stock charts is uncommon among cryptocurrencies, but it could happen.
The DMI on the daily chart shows how the bears lose strength and are well below the ADX line. The bulls are reacting with little force to the upside, so it seems that the possible bearish rejection of the MACD may be conditioning the buying side.
