Technical analysis



The largest cryptocurrency by market cap had a weekend of consolidation and indecisiveness. While the most recent spike brought BTC to higher levels and reach $7,811, the fact of the matter is that the $7,750 level held up quite nicely and that the Bitcoin bears did not let the price to stay above this level.

If Bitcoin goes over $7,750 support level, we can expect a sharp increase in price. However, if that does not happen, we are more likely to expect a heavy selloff at below $7,420.

Key levels to the upside                    Key levels to the downside

1: $7,750                                           1: $7,420

3: $8,650                                            3: $6,850


Ethereum followed Bitcoin to the upside and ended up in a narrow range between $193.6 and $198. However, Ethereum’s move towards the upside was much more stable than Bitcoin’s move. The second-largest cryptocurrency by market cap will not be staying in this range for long as it is too narrow. Its fair will most likely be decided by Bitcoin’s movement in the near future.

Ethereum’s volume held its level throughout the weekend, while its RSI is at 65.

                                                           3: $178.6


XRP made a slight increase in value over the weekend as well but had the same fate as Bitcoin. While its price increase is not insignificant, the fact that it got stopped by the $0.2 resistance level says a lot in regards to the bull vs. bear presence. XRP might be forming a double top at the $0.2 level, which may trigger a selloff in the short term.

XRP’s volume stayed at the same level throughout the weekend, while its RSI level shot up to 62.
