Technical analysis



Bitcoin on a downward-facing path yet again. However, this may not be a bearish thing at all. Though some see this move as another short-term bear trend, many see it as the retracement to the base of the inverted H&S pattern which Bitcoin just left.

Bitcoin’s price went broke the $7,780 resistance and is right above it at the moment. Its volume is slowly descending, while its RSI value on the 4-hour chart is right in the middle of the value range.

Key levels to the upside                    Key levels to the downside

1: $7,780                                           1: $7,530

2: $7,990                                           2: $7,415

3: $8,165                                           3: $7,275


Ethereum followed Bitcoin on its downward path yet again today. The consolidation above the $141.15 support line currently does not seem like an option, as Ethereum continued its move down and is currently trying to stabilize in the middle of the range, bound by $141.15 at the top and $130 at the bottom.

Ethereum’s RSI is currently in the lower part of the value range. Its volume is descending but is still pretty high.

1: $141.15                                            1: $130

2: $148.5                                            2: $128.1

3: $154.2                                            3: 122.1


XRP is also following the industry trend of consolidating or going down in price. Its price fell under the $0.205 support level and is currently in the middle of the range, bound by $0.205 at the top and $0.1978 at the bottom. As momentum fades, volume lowers, and RSI drops down, further sharp downward movement is less likely to happen.

XRP’s volume is much lower than yesterday, while its RSI is in the lower part of the value range.

1: $0.205                                           1: $0.1978
