Technical analysis



Bitcoin has had an amazing weekend if we look at it from a price perspective. The biggest cryptocurrency managed to rally its bulls and break its $7,415 resistance to the upside. The price got retested on Sunday, but the now-turned resistance level held up and managed to keep Bitcoin’s price above.

Bitcoin is currently decreasing in volume, with its RSI levels dangerously close to the overbought territory. However, the short-term outlook is still slightly bullish.

Key levels to the upside                    Key levels to the downside

1: $7,565                                           1: $7,415

2: $7,828                                           2: $7,240

3: $8,000                                           3: $7,120


Ethereum has followed Bitcoin’s bull rally and gained value yet again. After a long struggle and indecisiveness of whether ETH will go up above $150.5 or below $144, bulls stepped in and brought the price above the resistance. Ethereum had a small level retesting, which the resistance held up. However, the real test of the newly formed resistance might be ahead.

Ethereum is, just like Bitcoin, slowly dropping in volume while its RSI is approaching overbought levels.

Key levels to the upside                    Key levels to the downside

1: $155.8                                             1: $150.5

3: $163.4                                            3: $133.5


XRP is on a short-term bull run. It was the best performing cryptocurrency out of the top 3 cryptos for a solid week. XRP had a great weekend as well, managing to pass several resistance levels. After passing above the $0.222 level, its price continued upwards and passed the $0.2267 level as well. It even attempted to get above the $0.234 price level, but this is where it got stopped. Its price is currently on a small downturn, which may indicate a retest of $0.2267 level to determine its strength as a resistance level.

XRP’s volume is much higher when compared to its value before the weekend. It is, however, dropping just like the rest of the top3 cryptocurrencies. Its RSI almost touched the overbought territory, but bounced back and is now in a small downtrend.
