The cryptocurrency market had a tranquil weekend, with Bitcoin (BTC) and other cryptocurrencies not experiencing significant volatility. Here’s an analysis of the market situation for Bitcoin (BTC), Ethereum (ETH), and Pax Gold (PAXG) as of Monday, February 5.

Bitcoin (BTC)

No significant changes have been observed on the BTC chart since our last analysis. The asset is currently trading between the buyer's zone of $40,880–$41,800 and the resistance zone of $43,050–$44,000, with neither side showing readiness to escalate actions to determine the future direction.

For the upward trend to resume, BTC needs to breach the zone of $44,900–$46,200. Such a move could pave the way for reaching new local highs above the $49,000 mark.

Should the BTC chart undergo a deeper correction, the asset might fall into the buyer's zone of $38,600–$39,500. Securing below this range would suggest a shift towards a stable downtrend, with a potential drop to the $38,000 level.

Ethereum (ETH)

The Ethereum chart has seen no major changes over the past week. The coin's price is still trapped in a sideways range between the support level of $2,234 and the resistance of $2,238. ETH's future movements will largely depend on BTC's chart developments.

Should the buyers manage to assert their strength, the ETH price might secure above its current position and aim for the $2,465 mark. This scenario could open the way to test the resistance zone of $2,581–$2,646, where securing above could signal the end of the local bear trend and the start of a move to set new highs.

In a bearish scenario, ETH could revisit the buyer's zones of $2,166–$2,208 and $2,096. The extent of any further correction will be influenced by BTC’s performance.

Pax Gold (PAXG)

Last week, the price of gold fluctuated within the range of $1,953–$1,982 (lower boundary) and $2,043–$2,081 (upper boundary). Yesterday, the asset tested the lower buyer's zone but quickly rebounded to levels above $2,000, indicating a temporary advantage for buyers.

A continuation of the sideways trend appears to be the most likely outcome. To break upwards, buyers need to consolidate above the $2,070 level, which could lead to a new annual high at the $2,100 mark.

As previously analyzed, any decrease in the asset's price should be seen as a buying opportunity on the spot market, with the support levels of $1,900–$1,933 and $1,868 being particularly appealing for such transactions.

This week’s economic news sector will feature: 

  • The services PMI (Monday, February 5);
  • US crude oil inventories (Wednesday, February 7);
  • The count of initial jobless claims (Thursday, February 8). 

Although these events might not dramatically influence cryptocurrency prices, they could momentarily heighten volatility.
