Bitcoin

After spending the past couple of days in a very narrow range, Bitcoin has finally made a move as bears took over the market. The price went down rapidly and reached as low as $18,000 at one point, but then went slightly above this crucial level.

While Bitcoin is safe from breaking $18,000 to the downside at the moment, Micheal van de Poppe pointed out that a large CME gap is looming. The gap ranges from $18,275 to $16,995.

Lastly, the Hash Ribbons indicator has posted a buy signal, giving long-term investors the green light to invest in Bitcoin. This indicator has proven itself one of the best RoI indicators for Bitcoin when it comes to long-term investing.

BTC/USD 4-hour chart

Bitcoin’s long-term technicals (weekly and monthly) are completely tilted towards the buy-side, while its daily overview is still bullish but showing slight signs of neutrality. On the other hand, its 4-hour overview is completely bearish.

Ethereum

Ethereum wasn’t immune to the downturn either, with its price dropping from the sub-$600 levels all the way down to just above $550. Unlike Bitcoin, however, there are no CME gaps to worry about, and Ethereum seems quite stable above $550.

The only thing to worry about when anticipating Ether’s next price move is Bitcoin’s movement. At the moment, Bitcoin is dictating all consolidations, as well as large moves in either direction.

ETH/USD 4-hour Chart

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

Ripple

The fourth-largest cryptocurrency by market cap moved to the downside as well, with its $0.545 support level holding up as the last-resort support. XRP is currently stable and trading between $0.545 to the downside and $0.571 to the upside, with its price, seemingly creating a double bottom (today and on Dec 5).

XRP traders might want to (still) refrain from trading XRP simply due to the disbalance of the risk and reward, as well as due to its low volatility.

XRP/USD 4-hour Chart

XRP’s longer weekly and monthly time-frames show complete bullishness, while its 4-hour overview is completely bearish. Its daily overview is still bullish but shows some signs of neutrality or even some bearishness.
