This Monday seems to be bullish, and, as I wrote in yesterday's market snapshot, it may set the trend for the upcoming week.


At the moment of writing, STEEM was trading, on average, at $4.15 on Coinmarketcap, up from yesterday.

On Bittrex, the 30 minutes chart shows a mostly sideways trading around 46.5k satoshis, with 2 failed attempts to go over 48k satoshis.

The 1 hour chart confirms the 46k satoshis resistance level.

The 1 day chart is showing a second correcting candle, setting the base level at 46k satoshis.

SBD was trading, at the moment of writing, at $4.69 on average, up from yesterday. The 30 minutes chart on Bittrex shows a sideways trading in the 51k-53k satoshis corridor

The 1 hour chart shows that the last two attempts to go over 57k satoshis where very faible.

The 1 day chart is still bullish with the last two red correcting candles barely wiping half of the last green candle.

SBD to STEEM Ratio

At the moment of writing, according to, you could buy 1.126 STEEM with 1 SBD, slightly down from yesterday and the parity continues to be broken.

Overall opinion: STEEM and SBD started the week in green and both seem to be prepping to bounce even higher from their resistance levels. After 4 days of closing higher than opening, SBD is changing trend towards STEEM. Still early to tell if it will go under parity in the next few days.

It certainly is nice to see higher highs and some nice space between the opening and closing prices, hopefully things will now start to pick up more we are on the doorstep of March. lets hope we can reach that $10 mark in the not to distant future.
things are looking up.
The news seems positive at the moment i think everyone is back on their medications and relaxed for a bit :)

Glad to see green color on Monday, otherwise from past many months every Monday was expected to be red day...Good change!

I had a look on the top 100 by market cap. Again, all are green, many of the cryptos having a double digit growth (U.CASH even having +875.58%). I believe we need to get used with this: what goes up, must go down, and vice-versa.

I think bitcoin will go back down to it's support again and then back up but we shall see. It seems to be a slow and gradual rise which is probably a good thing.

everything above a dollar for sbd is a bonus always :D

A higher sbd price motivates more people to come and participate on the platform although i'm hoping for a healthy grow for both anyways :-D

It's a joy to observe this growth. And a much bigger joy to participate in the creation of content. The feedback I get inspires me to do more of what I love.

Thanks for sharing your vision!

I have nothing of value to add, or any upvote bait, lol. But seriously, cheers for these snapshots. Saves me time because learning Steemit still takes up much of mine.

dupa parerea ta , mai ajunge bitcoin la 20k pana la sfarsitul anului, stiu ca e imposibil ca cineva sa stie dar eram curios sa iau si alta parere.


Orice e posibil.

I also been monitoring the price movement of some cryptocurrency especially bitcoin, ethereum and steem. Now what the people want to see are breakouts or something. It failed its attempts but it will again try to retest the resistance.

Happy to see green color on monday.
Good change .
Thanks for updating.
Have a nice day

I knew present market price through your post and also related various things. Thank you very much for your post.

thanks for posting

thanks for sharing a good information.....i like your every post........@dragosroua

STEEM , SBD , BTC and All other ALT Coins will go down for some days. Looks like BTC will touch down to $6K But in Start of the MARCH It will again touch to $12k.

Expert saying that in the end of the MARCH, BTC will reach to ATH $25K with ALT coins to also reach their all-time high values.

This was all from Expert, I am not expert and this is not a financial advice from me.


Sbd has a lot potential because it has a whole steem community that supports it so when all other coins are flat still sbd and steem have shown resistance at $4.2 so once market grows hope to see sbd and steem run..... Cheers nice article!!

you always great post......thanks for shearing

great time to convert all into steem :)

Dear steemer,
nice post and I followed you :) Please follow me :)

Thanks for your good posting, upvote & reply one to help my account ...

Good to see that both the Steem and the SBD have a better trend. Hopefully, an important bounce will be generated.
