Technical analysis

Bitcoin

After a failed breakout of the ascending triangle, Bitcoin’s price started moving down until it reached $11,460 on Saturday. After reaching that level and not being able to pass it to the downside, Bitcoin bounced and started moving up slowly. The whole weekend was rather slow in terms of volatility, but extremely important in terms of where Bitcoin will end up. The fight for $11,630 was successful, and BTC is now above it, with the potential of going further up. However, the move to the upside will not go far with this volume, as it is way too low for any significant movement.

BTC traders should look for a trade near the $11,900 level, which might act as resistance.

Ethereum

Ethereum’s weekend was also spent in recovering from the bearish moves that occurred in the previous week. The second-largest cryptocurrency by market cap managed to stabilize at below-$400 levels, which it is now trying to pass to the upside. However, the moves which occurred in the past week created a downward-facing trend, which is creating resistance towards the upside, which Ethereum is struggling to pass with low volume, which it now has.

Ethereum traders can look for a trade after Ethereum breaks the trend (to any side).

Ripple

XRP’s chart looks no different than Bitcoin’s and Ethereum’s chart. The third-largest cryptocurrency by market cap spent the weekend recovering from what was lost during the bearish moves that occurred throughout the week. XRP stabilized at $0.28 and then gathered the strength to push past it. While the price is currently above the $0.285 level, it is not certain that it will stay that way. XRP would need a confirmation move in order to turn $0.285 into true support.

XRP traders can look for after XRP confirms its position, or after it drops below $0.285.
