Technical analysis

Bitcoin

Bitcoin has spent the day recovering from yesterday’s pullback and trying to regain $19,000. However, this level has proven to be a solid resistance zone, and it is unsure whether Bitcoin will manage to push over it. On the other hand, the overall sentiment around the largest cryptocurrency by market cap is incredibly bullish, mostly due to the massive investments coming from the institutional side.

Bitcoin is very volatile and unpredictable at the moment, making the trades quite hard to pull off. Traders should pay attention to volume and watch smaller time-frames and enter trades with a high profit/loss ratio to mitigate the risk when things go bad.

Bitcoin’s short-term technicals are completely bullish, while its weekly and monthly technicals show some signs of neutrality alongside the overall bullishness.

Ethereum

Ethereum has spent the day mostly flat and hovering right under the $600 mark. The second-largest cryptocurrency by market cap has continuously failed to break the immediate resistance level but did not back down from it.

Ethereum traders have a good chance of catching a safe trade with a stop-loss slightly below $600 if Ether pushes above $600 (either because of its own price movement or as a response to Bitcoin breaking $19,000 with conviction).

ETH/USD 4-hour Chart

Ethereum’s daily and monthly technicals are completely bullish, while its 4-hour and weekly time-frames show some neutrality next to the overall bullishness.

Ripple

The fourth-largest cryptocurrency by market cap has had another slow day, with its price fluctuating between $0.6 and $0.64. The $0.6 support level seems to be holding quite well, while the $0.625 level got ignored several times, which made us remove it from the key levels section.

Trading XRP is almost impossible as the cryptocurrency currently has no volatility and (therefore) no trade opportunities.
