Technical analysis

Bitcoin

Bitcoin has continued with its slow movement as another low volatility day passed. The largest cryptocurrency by market cap oscillated between $18,905 and $19,431. The one time it dropped under the $19,000 mark, it found support in the 50-period moving average, which has proven to be a strong (both support and resistance) level.

Due to the low volatility, traders can’t really do much at the moment. However, they can prepare for the next move Bitcoin makes.

Lastly, the Hash Ribbons (one of the best accumulation indicators) indicator has posted a buy signal, giving long-term investors the green light.

BTC/USD 4-hour chart

Bitcoin’s technicals on both short and long time-frames are bullish, with its weekly time-frame showing full tilt to the buy-side and its 4-hour, daily, and monthly time-frames tilting more towards neutrality.

3: $20,000                                  3: $18,600

Ethereum

Ethereum has, just like Bitcoin, had quite a slow day, with its price moving slightly down. At the moment, the second-largest cryptocurrency by market cap doesn’t seem like it will tackle $600, as its volume is too low to pressure this major resistance level. However, if and when a bull run past $600 happens, traders will have a great opportunity to catch a safe trade with a stop-loss slightly below $600 and a possible target of $620 or $630.

ETH/USD 4-hour Chart

Ethereum’s monthly overview shows a full tilt towards the buy-side, while its daily and weekly overviews show some signs of neutrality. On the other hand, its 4-hour overview is completely bearish.

3: $735                                      3: $510

Ripple

The fourth-largest cryptocurrency by market cap has close to no volatility, as well as very low volume on most exchanges. With the price movement being non-existent, there is not much to say about the current XRP trading. However, whenever the trading range is getting this narrow, a breakout is on the horizon.

XRP has created a flag formation on the 1-day chart, signaling that an increase in volume could bring a breakout to the upside and a possible spike of up to 60%, which would take the coin’s price above $1,00.


XRP/USD 4-hour Chart

XRP’s longer time-frames (weekly and monthly) show complete bullishness, while its 4-hour and daily overviews show some signs of neutrality or even bearishness.

Technical factors (4-hour Chart):
  • The price is at its 50-period EMA, as well as at its 21-period EMA
  • Price is at its middle Bollinger band

  • Volume is well below average
