Technical analysis



Bitcoin has had a slight price drop over the weekend. However, that slight drop was not insignificant. Bitcoin broke its $7,415 support line and is now trading just below it. This key support has now turned resistance.

Bitcoin’s volume is currently lower than where it was at during the weekend. As for the RSI value, the line is slowly falling towards oversold levels again. The key level of $7,415 has moved to the upside.

Key levels to the upside                   Key levels to the downside

1: $7,415                                           1: $6,620

2: $8,000

3: $8,425                                


Ethereum’s struggle to declare its price as above or below the support zone ended during the weekend. The price followed Bitcoin and went down, but stayed contained within the support zone. The top of the zone now acts as resistance while the bottom acts as support.

With Ethereum’s RSI being pretty stable as well as a bit lower volume, Ethereum seems like its price will be staying within those bounds for some time.

Key levels to the upside                    Key levels to the downside

1: $167.8                                            1: $127

2: $178.6

3: $185


XRP spent the weekend following Bitcoin in price. After failing to break its $0.235 resistance, which would be good key support, XRP started dropping in price. It did not establish any immediate support lines, and even though it looks quite stable at the moment, it is in limbo as its first key support level is $0.202. As it seems that XRP will not reach $0.235 anytime soon, it will have to find support at lower prices or create some form of support at levels near where it currently is.

Key levels to the upside                   Key levels to the downside

1: $0.235                                           1:  $0.202

2: $0.245

3: $0.266
