Meanwhile, Ethereum’s price has decreased by 1.22% on the day, while XRP gained 5.71% of its value.

Technical analysis

Bitcoin

Bitcoin has broken its slight descending consolidation phase by bouncing off of the $26,000 level and pushing towards its all-time high level. While the level got barely broken and Bitcoin set a new all-time high, the bulls were not able to push past the resistance zone with confidence due to the lack of volume and buying pressure.

As a consequence of this, Bitcoin dipped to $27,600 levels, where it is consolidating at the moment. Traders should pay attention to volume movements, as these are the best indication of whether the move will actually break a support/resistance level at the moment.

If Bitcoin fails to break the all-time high level in the short future, we can expect a retracement that could reach the $23,000 zone.

3: $30,000                                  3: $24,315

Ethereum

Ethereum has spent the whole day trading right below its immediate resistance level of $747. The second-largest cryptocurrency by market cap tried to break above it twice, but failed both times. Ether is currently descending in price as a consequence of the failed bull attempts which created a double top.

Ethereum traders have to pay attention to Bitcoin’s movements, as its movement (either up or down) will most likely cause Ether’s next move.

ETH/USD 1-hour Chart

Ethereum’s technicals on every time-frame are tilted towards the bull-side. However, they all contain slight neutrality or bearishness alongside the overall tilt towards the buy-side.

Ripple

XRP has spent the day trying to stabilize its price after days of constant price dips. The fourth-largest cryptocurrency by market cap bounced off of the $0.173 level, and propelled itself towards the next zone, sitting at $0.214.

XRP is currently fighting for the $0.214 level, and if no new news (positive or negative) pop out, its short-term price will most likely depend on whether it manages to stay above the $0.214 level or fall below it.
