Technical analysts measure the patterns of price movements and other analytical tools to evaluate and analyze the strength and weaknesses of the asset. There are few terms understanding which you can properly analyze the crypto market trends.

  1. Trends -There are three possibilities of trends – Uptrend, downtrend, and sideways trend.
