7 best altcoins to buy in January

7 best altcoins to buy in January

Following a brief pause in the last weeks of December 2023, non-Bitcoin (BTC) cryptocurrencies, otherwise known as altcoins, entered 2024 with a slowdown, presenting potential ‘buy the dip’ opportunities for the first month of this year.

The persistent ascent of Bitcoin to a market value of $45,800, reaching its highest point since April 2021, has catalyzed a positive trajectory for various altcoins in the early months of 2024. 

Notably, several breakout assets adhere to well-defined social volume patterns. Without excessive fear of missing out (FOMO), the potential for substantial continued growth in altcoins exists, as per a crypto analysis platform Santiment post on X on January 2.

Ethereum (ETH)

Dogecoin (DOGE)

The upcoming months for Dogecoin (DOGE) are currently under consideration. Despite its categorization as a memecoin, the chart structure is notably promising. Before each anticipated upward movement, specific technical indicators are being monitored.

Firstly, a MACD bullish cross has been confirmed. Secondly, the ASO cross is still pending, while there has been a confirmed price breakout of a multi-year trendline, further contributing to the analysis from Jay Dee’s post on December 28.

Chainlink (LINK) exhibits indications of a bull pennant formation. A conclusive closing above $17.2 may serve as the triggering factor for a potential breakout, driving the price of LINK toward $34. Nevertheless, monitoring the $14.2 level closely is crucial, as a decline below this threshold could undermine the existing bullish outlook, as per Ali Martinez’s post on January 1.

Polygon (MATIC) has recently explored the $1+ range, and this temporary position may not persist for an extended duration. Given the emerging momentum, a continuation towards $1.30 is likely, per Michaël van de Poppe.
