Price analysis is the ongoing process of cryptocurrency traders and analysts finding patterns in the market to determine optimal trading strategies and gauge market sentiment for the cryptocurrency market at large or for specific assets such as Bitcoin (BTC), Ether (ETH), XRP, Litecoin (LTC), etc.
The two main indicators that are sought after are whether or not the market is bullish with upward-trending price action or bearish with downward pressure on price.
Price analysis techniques vary and are often used in unison to provide as detailed a perspective of market conditions as possible. Traders may analyze a cryptocurrency’s volume in relation to its price or use candlestick charts to gauge market sentiment on a daily basis.
The tools and techniques of price analysis are ultimately the means of spotting patterns at the micro and macro levels as indicators of overall industry growth.
