Technical analysis

Bitcoin

Bitcoin has possibly ended its retracement and entered sideways trading as its price created a double bottom at the $30,000 mark. However, there was one point where the largest cryptocurrency by market cap dropped as much as 20% and broke $28,000 to the downside, but recovered almost instantly.

BTC is currently right above the $30,807 Fib retracement level and is fighting to stay above it. If it posts a candle that shows it consolidated above this level, we could see another push towards the upside. However, if it breaks the Fib retracement, we could see BTC looking for support at the $30,000 or $29,300 levels.

Ethereum

Ethereum is certainly one of the most interesting cryptocurrencies in the last couple of days, with its price going from stagnation to skyrocket mode in a matter of hours. While many thought that the initial push above $1,000 is over and that ETH is destined to retrace below it, the second-largest cryptocurrency by market cap managed to do it again – just one day later.

The cryptocurrency managed to bounce off of one of its numerous support levels and propel its price back above $1,000.

Ethereum is now fighting for the $1,000 level, with its price barely staying above it.

Litecoin

Litecoin ended its 2-day bull run after reaching bull exhaustion at the $174.5 mark, after which it started to consolidate. However, the consolidation phase looks like less of a consolidation phase and more like a fight for the $152 Fib retracement level.

Litecoin is currently losing the battle for $152 –  but even in the case of bears pushing it to the downside, its price has many support anchor points, most notably the zone between $135 and $142.

LTC/USD 1-hour Chart

Litecoin’s technicals on the 4-hour and monthly time-frame are completely bullish, while its daily and weekly overviews show some oscillators having bearish values.
