As you might know, there is a Bitcoin price mode by PlanB called the "stock-to-flow Bitcoin price model " and based on which PlanB has argued that if BTC closes August above $47K, Bitcoin may see the "worst-case scenario" target price of $135K by the end of this year.

If BTC/USDT touches the support line of the wedge, it’s a good opportunity to buy. If the prices bounce back off, the bullish trend can continue. If the wedge breaks out, there’s a chance that BTC reaches $53K and $60K afterwards.

Normally, when a pattern is broken out, the price drops and tests the breakout level again. Hence, ETC/USDT could test the $63.56 level again in the coming days.
The LUNA token belongs to Terra Protocol and has been on the rise in the past couple of days, suggesting a new uptrend is very probable as suggested by the breakout and close above the downtrend line.

The $18 overhead resistance has been defended since 4 days ago. The bulls will try to push LUNA/USDT above $18 if the price sees a rise from the current level or bounce back from the support line. Once this is achieved, the next targets are $19.54 and $22.
On Aug. 14, Klaytn (KLAY) managed to go past $1.81 resistance, but the bulls failed to ascend any further while the bears are defending the overhead resistance according to the overhead resistance.

The RSI was pushed into the overbought zone deeply by the rally in the past few days, which is indicative of a possible partial correction in the coming days. In the case of having dips, $1.60 and $1.40 are the supports that we may have.
The bulls will try again to go past $1.81 if the price bounces back off the support levels mentioned earlier. A rounding bottom pattern will be completed once there is a breakout and close above the $1.81 level, whose objective is $2.90.
AXS stands for Axie Infinity Shards, and this token belongs to Axie Infinity, which has been having great days since it’s been experiencing a bull run for the past couple of weeks. On Aug. 11, AXS recorded a new ATH at $77.48. Having taken a look at the long wick on the day’s candlestick, we realized that traders are expecting more profit.
