Technical analysis

Bitcoin

After a failed breakout of the ascending triangle, Bitcoin’s price started moving down sharply towards $11,630. The move, as we noted in our previous articles, stopped there. Bitcoin spent the past 24 hours mostly consolidating after a brief moment of bullish presence, which brought its price above $11,800 levels.

This move towards the upside, no matter how small it is, shows that Bitcoin is in a great spot at the moment, and it would take a lot to shake it out of this extremely bearish mid-term position.

BTC traders should be looking for a trade above $12,000, or after the push towards it fails.

Ethereum

Ethereum spent the day struggling at the $415 level, as the fight for whether it will end up above or below the level is still continuing. The second-largest crypto by market cap recovered from its drop to $395 after hitting a semi-descending line, which acted as support/resistance since Aug 5.

This fight for $415 clearly shows the fight between two mindsets: bulls who are extremely bullish when it comes to DeFi and everything related, and bears which are scared of the skyrocketing ETH transaction fees as well as of the ICO scenario that happened around 2017.

Ethereum traders should wait for ETH to establish itself above or below $415 before trading.

Ripple

XRP’s chart looks a lot like BTC’s chart in the past couple of days. The third-largest cryptocurrency by market cap stopped moving towards the downside after hitting $0.285, which held up quite nicely. XRP then got a small boost towards the $0.29, where it is now consolidating.

With both 21-period and 50-period moving averages right above the price, XRP would require a strong bullish initiative in order to move towards $0.31, which (at the moment) seems unlikely.

Traders can look for an entry within the range between $0.285 and $0.31.
