Why It Matters: Cryptocurrencies continue to shadow Wall Street where stocks “can’t win right now,” according to Edward Moya, senior market analyst with OANDA.

“Either the economic data softens and the economy is much weaker than we thought or robust readings pave the way for the Fed to be more aggressive with their inflation fight,” wrote Moya in a note, seen by Benzinga.

“The mood for risky assets is to fade all rallies, which means Bitcoin should remain trapped in its tight trading range a little while longer.”

Cryptocurrency trader Justin Bennett said Bitcoin lagged the S&P500 in the latest run-up. “We've seen this before. The moment stocks start to roll over, [crypto] is likely to dump,” tweeted the analyst.

Data from Glassnode indicates that the Bitcoin spot price is trading below various models developed from both technical and on-chain foundations to gauge bear market lows.

Glassnode pointed out that Bitcoin at $21,300 traded below the Realized Price ($22,500), the 0.6 Mayer Multiple band ($23,380), and the 200 Week MA ($22,390), and recently broke below the Balanced Price ($17,980).

“Only 13 out of 4,360 trading days (0.2%) have ever seen similar circumstances, occurring in just two prior events, Jan 2015 and March 2020,” wrote the on-chain analysis company in a blog post.

As the weekend rally faded, a trend of traders shorting altcoins and flocking to Bitcoin emerged, according to a tweet from Santiment.

Chartist Ali Martinez said Bitcoin must close above $21,820 for a chance of further advance, as there aren’t any “significant supply barriers ahead.”

Martinez said in a tweet that BTC “also needs to keep $20,800 as support for the bullish outlook to be validated. If not, then expect a downswing to $19,000.”

On the Ethereum side, the important area is between $1,140 and $1,170, according to cryptocurrency trader Michaël van de Poppe. If the second-largest coin cannot hold those levels it could slip to $1,060.
