Hey everyone and welcome back to this weekly recap, where we take a look at what has happened last week and try to digest the information in our own way. I hope you all are doing well. I hodled, didn’t sell, but I still felt the pain in my heart to see the $ value of my bags cut in half.
What’s the market saying right now? Relief, last week we had a lot of FUD which led to a market dip of ± 50%.

Alrighty, technicals, my favorite place to be and just watch the market move. I purchased the Tradingview Pro account so I’ll be able to share 2 timeframes at once. Woohoo.
ETH dropped at more thanfrom its highs of $4350 to a low of $1730. We’re seeing a lot of rejection candles, so people are buying the dips.
Bitcoin dropped 55% from its highs of $65k to a low of $29k. The rebound of Bitcoin is not as strong as Ethereum’s rebound, but we are seeing a “V” shape recovery.
Let’s take a look at the Bitcoin Dominance. BTC rebounded when the markets crashed. Altcoins took a big hit of 60-70%, but recovered better than BTC.
Ethereum is still holding strong against Bitcoin, a little bit of a correction and back up.
Let’s take a look at some metrics, I love to take a step back and zoom out to look at the bigger picture. This is exactly why I don’t use lower timeframes when I do my TA.
Overall the ETH exchange reserve is declining, but it had a spike while the markets dropped.
Let’s look at last week’s screenshot. This looked bearish in hindsight, but we didn’t expect the market to react like it did.
People are withdrawing from exchanges again, but I want to see a similar depletion of the reserves like Ethereum.

200 Week Moving Average Heatmap
This is the 200 week moving average heatmap. When the orange and dots show up then it has (historically) been a good time to sell as the market overheats (aka Extreme Greed). This indicator has made my PlanB .
Bitcoin Unrealized P&L
We’re currently in the Optimism-Anxiety, but nowhere near the Capitulation when the Covid crash happened back in March 2020.
Keep in mind that this indicator is very slow and lags behind the current market situation, good for super long term data.
The market is very fearful right now so there’s a lot of buying opportunities. When people are panic selling then it’s generally a good time to buy . #NotFinancialAdvice
That’s it for the market recap of Week 20 2021, I hope you enjoyed it and as always: Stay AbNormal!

Always keep this image in mind, money flows from asset to asset.
