Technical analysis

Bitcoin

Bitcoin is at an important crossroad that will decide its short-term future. While it is currently stuck between $11,630 and $12,000, the largest cryptocurrency by market cap will soon have to decide on its direction. Even though a retest of the $11,630 support seems much more plausible, that does not mean that BTC will make a sharp move towards the downside. If the level holds, Bitcoin might have a good chance of bouncing towards $12,000 yet again.

The low volume also shows that a bigger move is on the horizon.

Traders should look for what BTC will do after it hits one of its support/resistance levels before making a trade.

Ethereum

Unlike Bitcoin that’s preparing for a move and trading with reduced volume and volatility, Ethereum had a great day and ended up making good gains. The second-largest cryptocurrency by market cap had a small volume spike, which was significant enough to push the price up and past the descending trend it was in for a couple of days.

Ethereum is now stabilizing at around $400, while its volume is decreasing.

Ethereum traders should look for Bitcoin’s next move, which ETH will most likely follow.

3: $496                                      3: $340

Ripple

XRP spent the day consolidating above $0.285 level, which is regained the previous day. The third-largest cryptocurrency by market cap focused on stabilizing above $0.285, but without much success. While it is still technically above it, XRP would need a small move towards the upside (or some other sort of a decisive move) to confirm its position.

XRP traders should be careful around the $.285 level and pick their trade carefully based on where XRP will go.
