The cryptocurrency market experienced minimal volatility over the weekend due to the absence of major events. Here's an analysis of the market situation for Bitcoin (BTC), Ethereum (ETH), and Pax Gold (PAXG) as of Monday, January 29.

Bitcoin (BTC)

Our previous forecast for Bitcoin proved quite accurate. Following a test of the support zone at $38,600–$39,500, the price rebounded, hitting a new local high of $42,840.

Despite this recovery, Bitcoin's future trajectory remains uncertain. If buyers can break through the resistance at $42,690, BTC could aim for the next selling range between $44,000 and $45,120, potentially testing the $46,160 level. Such a move would signify an end to the current correction phase.

In case of a decline, the coin might revisit the support zones at $40,370–$41,400 and $38,600–$39,500, possibly setting new lows.

Ethereum (ETH)

ETH managed to bounce back from the buyer zone of $2,160–$2,208, but its ascent appears somewhat tentative. The coin is now hovering near the resistance area of $2,300–$2,352, a crucial barrier to its continued upward movement.

Should buyers surpass this zone, the next targets would be $2,415 and $2,470.

A continuation of the correction could see ETH retesting the support zone of $2,160–$2,208 and potentially setting a new local low below the buyer level of $2,096.

Pax Gold (PAXG)

The gold chart has remained relatively stable for over a month, with the price trapped between the support zone of $1,853–$1,982 and resistance at $2,043–$2,071. Currently, neither buyers nor sellers are making decisive moves.

According to our previous PAXG analysis, a continued rise and setting new annual highs is the expected scenario. For buyers, the immediate target is around $2,100, reaching which would confirm a bullish trend.

In case of a correction, PAXG could fall to the buyer's zone of $1,900–$1,933 and down to the support level of $1,868. Given PAXG's positive trend, such a dip should be seen as an opportunity to accumulate more of the asset for an investment portfolio.

The economic sector this week is highlighted by several key events: 

  • US Consumer Confidence Index (Tuesday, January 30);
  • Crude oil inventories and the Fed's decision on interest rates (Wednesday, January 31);
  • Initial jobless claims, Manufacturing PMI (Thursday, February 1);
  • US unemployment rate for January 2024 (Friday, February 2).

These events could affect not only the volatility of the cryptocurrency market but also its directional trends, so it's advisable to be cautious about opening trades during these news releases.
