Crypto Market Analysis: Top Altcoins to Watch Amid Bitcoin’s Latest Correction

Crypto Market Analysis

Crypto Market Analysis: The leading cryptocurrency, Bitcoin, falling for four consecutive days has disrupted the bullish sentiment initiated by Ethereum earlier this week amid the development in Spot ETH ETF. The U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) has recently greenlit Form 19b-4 applications for eight notable Ethereum exchange-traded funds (ETFs), as reported by Wu Blockchain. 

The ETFs, spearheaded by industry giants such as BlackRock, Fidelity, Grayscale, Bitwise, VanEck, Ark, Invesco Galaxy, and Franklin Templeton, are yet to activate their S-1 registration statements before trading can commence. Although the timeline for this final approval phase remains uncertain, Bloomberg analyst James Seyffart estimates that the process could span several weeks. This development marks a significant step forward in the integration of cryptocurrency into mainstream financial services.

Thus, the ETH price shows notable resilience; the $3650 level of other altcoins like Pepe coin (PEPE) and Lido DAO (LDO) signals an opportunity for a prolonged rally.

1) Ethereum (ETH)

Last week, Ethereum (ETH) began its recovery phase after a strong bounce from the $2860 monthly support level. This bullish reversal led to a more than 30% increase in its value, with the coin now trading at around $3696. Concurrently, Ethereum’s market capitalization rose to $443.6 billion.

This recovery gained notable momentum following the development around Spot ETH ETF. While the broader market showed a notable sell-off this week, the ETH price sustained above $3650 indicating the active buying pressure from below.

The aforementioned level may act as a suitable support for ETH to push its next recovery leap to $4090, followed by $4430.

Over the last five weeks, the UNI price has predominantly fluctuated within a narrow range between $8.35 and $6.6. This lateral movement occurs at a critical support juncture, marked by the 78.6% Fibonacci retracement level and an ascending trendline (illustrated by the blue line), signaling a significant accumulation zone.

On May 20th, the buyers gave a decisive breakout from the pattern’s overhead resistance signaling a major trend reversal. The Uniswap coin currently trades at $9.44 and holds a market cap of $5.65 billion.

If the breakout sustains, the coin buyers could lead a rally to $10.3 followed by $13.3.
