The last seven days were the days of the halving for BTC: the market obviously waited for the event and was hugely conditioned by it. Investors hoping for an acceleration of the uptrend going on for weeks were, however, disappointed. Small projects overperformed the field once again but were just marginally positive, with Mid-cap lagging and Top projects falling behind.

Finally, we got there. Today was the day of the much anticipated Bitcoin halving event, which caught the attention of all investors for weeks. The event will happen around 19.30 UTC . In a classical “buy the rumor, sell the news” fashion, BTC price actually crashed over the weekend losing circa 20% of its value. It then recovered and BTC was able to finish the week with a marginal gain, but still far from the relative high.

While Bitcoin is nearing 10,000 USD, we have a look at two technical indicators: RSI and MACD. BTC’s RSI is currently over 70, and therefore signaling an overbought situation. MACD is showing a positive and supportive setting. We will have an in depth look at all major projects technical settings in tomorrow’s Weekly Crypto Report.

With less than 10 days to the much anticipated halving event, Bitcoin clearly overperformed the rest of our sectors during the past seven days. BTC crossed the 9000 USD mark on April 30th after crossing the 8000 USD mark on April 29th. It reached a high of 9460 USD and then fell back under 9000 USD after facing the resistance line coming from the all time high price and passing through the relative peak levels.
