Bitcoin, Ethereum Technical Analysis: BTC at 2-Year Low, ETH Down 20% as FTX Turmoil Leads to Crypto Bloodbath

Bitcoin plunged to a two-year low on Wednesday, as the FTX token sell-off continued to weigh on cryptocurrency markets. After an initial 30% slide, FTX token fell by as much as 80%, as Binance confirmed its intention to absorb the failing exchange. Ethereum was also lower, dropping below $1,200.

Bitcoin

Bitcoin (BTC) fell to its lowest level in two years on Wednesday, as markets continued to react to the volatility caused by the FTX/Binance affair.

The world’s largest cryptocurrency plunged to a low of $17,402.55 earlier in today’s session, less than a day after trading at a high of $20,582.24.

This move, which saw prices plummet by as much as 10%, took BTC/USD to its lowest level since November 2020.

As can be seen from the chart, the decline intensified when the token fell below its long-term support level of $19,000.

In addition to this, the 14-day relative strength index (RSI) has also slipped to a floor of its own, which is near the 29.75 level.

BTC has somewhat rebounded from earlier lows, with the token now trading at $17,718.95, with some bulls hoping for a support around $17,900 to be established.

Ethereum

In addition to BTC, ethereum (ETH) also fell considerably in today’s session, as prices dropped below $1,200 in the process.

Following a high of $1,564.55 on Tuesday, ETH/USD was down by as much as 20%, hitting a low of $1,157.23 .

This drop saw ETH move to its lowest level since July 14, when the token was trading slightly above $1,000.

Like with bitcoin above, the RSI on this ethereum chart is now tracking at 33.00, which is marginally above a floor of 32.50.

This reading, which is the weakest reading in the last five months, means that prices are now in oversold territory, which long-term bulls believe means that a bottom has been hit.

However, the 10-day (red) moving average continues to fall downward, and should this trend continue, it is likely that ETH will move below $1,000.
