Technical analysis

Bitcoin

After finally breaking $12,000 with confidence, Bitcoin is now falling hard below it (click on the arrow of the image). The largest cryptocurrency by market cap is dropping below $11,700 at the moment on bearish momentum. If the cryptocurrency manages to break below the 11,600 level, the next target will be 11,087. Right now, it is heavily oversold, so we can also expect a bounce back to near $12,000.

BTC traders should look for a trade after the cryptocurrency decides on whether it will end up above or below $11,600, as this is a strong support level.

Ethereum

Ethereum’s social sentiment is still on the rise with the increased interest in DeFi. Even though the second-largest cryptocurrency by market cap is losing heavily in the past 24 hours, the $400 support level should hold, and ETH is (for the time being) safe above it. The next move Ethereum makes will most likely be caused by Bitcoin’s move, as the largest cryptocurrency by market cap is preparing an explosive move towards (most likely) the upside. That, though, should wait a bit, since cryptos are still under selling pressure.

Traders should look for a trade when ETH regains a higher and steady volume.

Ripple

XRP’s bold move towards the upside, which came after announcing that its company (Ripple) will focus its business model on the XRP token rather than using it as a side solution, got nullified. The third-largest cryptocurrency by market cap dropped below the $0.31 level and as low as $0.29 (which is where it is at now).

Traders can look for a trade after XRP moves above or below its immediate support/resistance levels, or within the current trading level.
