Bitcoin has enjoyed a few bullish days this week, keeping investors on their toes, as the world’s largest cryptocurrency by market value rose and re-challenged the short-term downtrend (line) around US$44,000.00 to US$44,600.00 level, also seen as the (61.8%) Fibonacci retracement resistance.

It is critical that the bulls get their act together soon and lift prices through this level; otherwise, a muted performance could see the recent gains fade.

If the upward momentum can increase, clearing the US$44,600.0 level should strengthen the positive sentiment and reinstate the bullish case to the challenge of the (50%) Fibonacci retracement resistance at US$48,800.0, which has caused some trouble for the bulls to clear recently.

Above here exposes a broader bullish outlook to the (38.2%) key level at US$53,400.00. Reassess from there.

Conversely, a close under the September 2021 lows around US$40,350.00 could open a bigger bearish pattern and expose the region of US$34,200.00 as the next bearish challenge (support).

Ethereum, the second-largest cryptocurrency by market cap, has unquestionably made some wild swings this week since rebounding from the intraday lows of US$2,922.

Meanwhile, since clearing the US$3,250-55 level, potentially has reinstated the bullish bias.

With that being said, Ethereum must close the week above $3,250-55; otherwise, it could question the break and reopen the downside and look to the region of US$2,770 to US$2,600 (key support).

If the current bullish trek can hold, then the immediate target holds to the (61.8%) Fibonacci retracement level at US$3,500.0.

Reassess from there, as the (50.0%) Fibonacci retracement level at US$3,755.0 would be viewed as the next challenge.

In other markets, PanCake Swaps upside potential remain intact as the technical implications strengthen.

The resistance is assessed from US$13.50, with US$16.00 located above.

Viewing the technical assessment, a bullish break-out from the Relative Strength Index (RSI) 3-daily ‘lookback’ indicator supports this assessment as we have now cleared the 50-midway point.

The broader assessment of eventually reaching the shores of US$19.50-80 as a near-term/broader target. Reassess from there.

Conversely, renewed weakness views support from the region of US$10.00-50, while the bull camp harbours beneath at US$9.40-60 assessed beneath.

Viewing Binance Coin (BNB), the utility token of the global crypto exchange, presently holds to a bullish bias, with the upside call awaiting the grand challenge at US$490.0.

The Relative Strength Index (RSI) 3-daily ‘lookback’ indicator holds in positive territory, while the Moving Average Convergence Divergence (MACD) supports a weak positive signal.

Viewing the downside, the immediate support is located at US$460,00, with the key support region of US$400.0 seen beneath.

Hedera Hashgraph (HBAR/USD) display a weaker price action Thursday and retreats from the US$0.31 minor resistance; however, the support at US$0.27.0 is currently keeping the bulls in play.

Failing to hold from this region could reopen the key support area standing firm at US$0.225 to $0.235.

However, with the technical assessment holding to a mildly bullish bias, it should eventually see US$0.31 cleared and expose the US$0.35 level.

Reassess from there, as it is viewed, little resistance is seen until US$0.42, with US$0.50 above, which is likely to see a round of profit-taking.
