Technical analysis

Bitcoin

Bitcoin has spent the weekend pushing towards $12,000 and finally passing it in a major push just a couple of hours ago. However, the price didn’t fully (or at all) establish itself above the major mark. Bitcoin will need to confirm its position above $12,000 (and confidently) before being considered as officially above it. For now, this level is still a resistance level.

BTC traders should look for an opportunity to make a trade when BTC confirms its position above or below $12,000.

3: $13180                                   3: $11,090

Ethereum

Unlike Bitcoin, Ethereum spent the weekend without much movement towards the upside. However, the second-largest cryptocurrency by market cap did fall back to the $361 level and tested its support, which held up quite nicely. Once the price bounced back to its previous highs, it continued slowly moving towards the upside, but without any real strength. Ethereum still has a way to go before it reaches past $400.

Traders should look for a trade opportunity when Ethereum increases its volume.

  • Price is slightly below its top B.B.
  • RSI is elevated (58.51)

3: $496                                      3: $302

Ripple

XRP had quite a turbulent weekend, with its price failing to stay above the previously broken triangle formation levels. This happened as, even though XRP managed to break the triangle formation to the upside, it did not reach past the $0.31 resistance level. Instead, bears stepped into the market and brought the price down to below $0.285 levels (at one point). However, the $0.285 level held up and XRP has confirmed its position above this support.

Traders can look for an opportunity to trade when XRP reaches the $0.31 mark and decides if it will reach above it or fall below once again.
