Technical analysis

Bitcoin

Bitcoin has spent the day continuing its push towards the upside, even posting a new all-time high (on most exchanges) for a moment as it reached $19,864 on Bitstamp. However, the 20,000 mark and BitMEX’s $20,093 remain untouched. With the buys on exchanges and derivatives markets and institutional investments, a strong all-time high might be posted extremely soon.

Bitcoin trading is quite hard at the moment simply due to how the cryptocurrency moves. Still, traders can squeeze a profit if they trade along with the main trend and long Bitcoin when the volume increases.

BTC/USD 4-hour Chart

Bitcoin’s technicals on all time-frames are tilted towards the buy-side but show slight neutrality signs, or even slight signs of bearishness.

Ethereum

Ethereum has, just like Bitcoin, continued its climb up. However, the move has stopped slightly below its most recent highs, topping at $617.87. The second-largest cryptocurrency by market cap now has two scenarios to play out:

  1. It can create a double top and start moving back towards the supporting levels;
  2. It can continue moving up on fundamentals and break the recent high and the recent trading patterns it created.

Ethereum’s current fundamental outlook is extremely bullish due to its Phase 0 of Ethereum 2.0 launching. This, along with Bitcoin moving towards the upside, has made trading any potential pullbacks quite impossible due to the amount of potential risk such trade would carry.

ETH/USD 4-hour Chart

Ethereum’s 4-hour, daily, and monthly technicals are extremely bullish and show no signs of neutrality. On the other hand, its weekly time-frame’s sentiment is bullish but shows some neutrality.

ETH/USD 1-day Technicals

Technical Factors (4-hour Chart):
  • The price is far above both its 50-period and its 21-period EMA
  • Price is near its top Bollinger band
  • RSI is near being overbought (68.63)
  • Volume is average

2: $630                                     2: $500 

3: $735                                      3: $490

Ripple

The fourth-largest cryptocurrency by market cap has tried moving up, as well, but in a much tamer manner. XRP has established its presence above $0.625 and pushed towards $0.666, which stopped the move. XRP will most likely continue trading in a range-bound by $0.666 to the upside and either $0.625 or $0.596 to the downside

Trading XRP is quite difficult at the moment, and trading Bitcoin or Ethereum is potentially more profitable and slightly more straightforward.

XRP/USD 4-hour Chart

XRP’s technicals on the 4-hour and weekly time-frames are bullish but show some signs of neutrality. On the other hand, its daily and monthly overviews are completely bullish.

XRP/USD 1-day Technicals

Technical factors (4-hour Chart):
  • The price is above its 50-period EMA and slightly above its 21-period EMA
  • Price is between its middle and top Bollinger band
  • RSI is neutral (60.95)
  • Volume is average
