Bitcoin fell between 5-12 May 2022 by over $13,000, i.e. over 33%. It increased the range of the ongoing from 28 March 2022 depreciation to over $21,000, i.e. 44%. In turn, counting from the peaks of November 2021, BTC decreased by over $42,000, i.e. 61%.
Bitcoin Price (BTC/USD)
Such a significant sale caused the exchange of the oldest virtual currencies to drop from $69,000 to below $27,000, which was the lowest level since December 2020.
It is noteworthy that this trend did not stop around the critical level of support of $29,000, where various types of demand reactions have occurred many times in the past. It was no different now.
This time, however, the rebound turned out to be extremely modest, and as a result, Bitcoin found itself in a horizontal trend. Considering that the consolidations are corrective formations, statistically, more often, the market will push out of this type of system in the direction consistent with the earlier move.
This particular case increases the risk of a potential bottom breakout, which could signal a potential for further declines to the $24,000 region or even below $20,000. This scenario may also be supported by the fact that the upper limit of this system coincides with the measurement of 38.2% Fibonacci correction from an earlier downward impulse.
Ethereum Price (ETH/USD)
The current situation on the Ethereum quotes is also identical. The price of this cryptocurrency fell between 3 April and 12 May this year by 52%, dropping to the Tech Support area of $1,750, the lowest level since July 2021.
However, taking into account that the demand response that appeared around this support was much more modest than the rebound observed in this area already in May, June and July 2021, one can assume that in the end, it will turn out to be only a correction, after which the ETH rate will return to around $1,750.
A permanent drop below this price level could open the door for further declines to $1,400. There is another significant support around which we could expect a greater demand response.
It is worth mentioning here, however, that although the consolidations are corrective formations, there is no rule determining when the market should break out of the system. This fact means that, although the statistics favour further declines before they happen, the ETH exchange rate may remain in the range of $1,900 to $2,150 for some time.
(XRP) Ripple Price
Looking at the XRP quotes, we can see that the price of this cryptocurrency fell between 28 March and 12 May this year by over 63%. This sell-off led to the breach of several important support zones and did not stop until around $0.36, where on 12 May this year, there was a demand response.
However, the subsequent rebound did not last too long. As a result, the XRP price has remained in the horizontal trend for several years. It assumes a return to the vicinity of $0.36 seems more likely. If, however, this support was permanently defeated, then the quotations of this cryptocurrency could even move towards $0.20.
Binance Coin (BNB)
The current situation on Binance Coin's quotes is also very interesting. The price of this cryptocurrency fell between 7 November 2021 and 12 May 2022 by over 67%.
This sale only stopped around $260 technical support - on Thursday, 12 May this year, there was a demand response. Due to the rebound that has continued since then, the BNB price has risen by more than 51%, thus returning to the area of â€‹â€‹previously defeated support (now resistance) of $330.
If a larger supply relationship is around this level, signalling its potential rejection, the BNB price could return to around $260 or even drop further to the $200 region.
