Technical analysis

Bitcoin

Bitcoin has spent most of the day in a price descent after it failed to break the $18,600 mark. BTC bulls tried to pick the price back up but failed, which has caused another mini-dip, which brought the price as low as $17,721 on Bitstamp. The $17,780 level has proven itself as great support once again, and Bitcoin is now trading in a range between it and $18,190.

Due to the amount of support and resistance levels in a narrow price range Bitcoin currently has, a push towards either side could be a possible safe trade to catch.

BTC/USD 2-hour chart

Bitcoin’s short-term technicals are tilted towards the sell-side but show slight signs of neutrality. Its long-time technicals, however, are completely bullish.

3: $18,790                                  3: $17,200

Ethereum

Ethereum has quickly stopped in its tracks towards $600 after hitting a brick wall at $581. The rebound pulled its price back below $565, as well as $545, which it is now fighting for. The fact that Ethereum is in a short-term bear run is confirmed by higher volume candles during price drops than during price spikes.

Our call from yesterday regarding Ethereum’s dip after dropping below $565 turned out as predicted. Traders should pay attention to Bitcoin’s movements and the ascending (red) trend line when trading Etheruem.

ETH/USD 2-hour Chart

Ethereum’s short-term technicals are tilted towards the sell-side but show slight neutral signs. However, its long-time technicals are bullish, with its weekly overview being slightly neutral than its monthly overview.

3: $600                                      3: $510

Ripple

XRP followed the rest of the crypto sector and made a price dip, which brought its price to the $0.543 level, which held up quite nicely. Its price is now recovering and consolidating between $0.543 and $0.57, with no signs of potential movement to either side.

XRP traders should pay attention to Bitcoin’s price movement, as most cryptocurrencies follow the general market direction it sets.

XRP/USD 2-hour Chart

XRP’s 4-hour and daily overviews show confusing signs, with some indicators being bullish and some bearish. Its long-term technicals are, however, completely bullish.
