    $555 Million Liquidated in 48 Hours, Predominantly Long Suffers
    Over the past 2 days over $555 million have been liquidated in the crypto market. Of the $555 million liquidated, over $413 million, or 74%, were long positions, reflecting the market’s current bearish trend.
    In terms of technical outlook on a weekly timeframe, Bitcoin (BTC) is currently trading within a range set between the weekly close of Jun. 27 and Aug. 8, respectively.
    A support trendline, measured from the weekly close on Oct. 10 2018, and extended from Mar. 09 2020, can be drawn to establish a future point of reference.
    As the price of BTC continues to exhibit bearish sentiment, coming into contact with the trendline seems inevitable, and volatility will likely ensue.
    By lending help from the Fibonacci extension tool, we can spot a major support zone divided into three layers between the monthly support level of $11,363 and the 161.8% level measured from Mar. 28 - May. 23.
    Within the support zone, there are three key levels to pay attention to in the coming weeks, the $13,730 monthly support, the 141.4% ($11,770) Fibonacci extension level measured from Jun. 6 - Jun. 13, and the monthly support of $11,363. This is a likely outcome if the bears manage to break the current range.
    On the contrary, if the bulls manage to keep the price of BTC within the current range, and then manage to make a comeback, there are two key resistance levels to pay attention to, first the monthly level of $19,858, then the 1.272% Fibonacci level measured from Mar. 28 - May. 23.
    On a daily timeframe,
    Ether, on the other hand, paints a much bullish picture, or an extremely bearish one. For the bulls, the current weekly support trendline measured from Mar. 16 - Jun. 27 marks a point of reference.
    Below this support trendline, a support zone can be derived by using the Fibonacci extension tool, which generates three Fibonacci extension levels (127.2%, 141.4%, & 161.8%) measured from the plunge between Aug. 15 - Aug. 22, which coincide with the opening and close of the weekly candle on Jul. 4.
    If the bear were to break ETH below the support trendline, then this is a support zone to be respected before the complete break of a “high wave” between Jul 4 - Aug. 8.
    On the contrary, if the bulls sustain above the top layer of the support zone and attempt to make a comeback, then the overhead resistance stands at the $1,428 monthly level.
    A close above this level on a weekly candle may indicate short-term bullishness, and the bulls will likely take advantage and make an attempt to bring the price of ETH above the 23.6% ($1,735) Fibonacci level measured from Jul 4 - Aug. 8, in order to invalidate the current bearish wave on a daily timeframe.
