Bitcoin

Bitcoin has had another amazing bull run, with its price pushing from just below $30,000 all the way up to $35,879, setting a brand new all-time high. However, this is where the price hit a wall, and Bitcoin started retracing. The largest cryptocurrency by market cap is now trading right below the previous all-time high of $34,800 and is seemingly going further down.

With the volume being as high as it is, the most does not seem like it’s done yet. Traders should pay attention to how the price reacts to certain levels.

BTC/USD 4-hour chart

Bitcoin’s technicals show a strong tilt towards the buy-side with some neutral characteristics, with only the 4-hour time-frame showing full bullish tilt.

Technical factors (4-hour Chart):

  • Volume is above average

3: $35,890                                 3: $26,340

Ethereum

Ethereum also moved to the upside, with its price slowly but surely going from $975 all the way up to $1,139 before retracing slightly. Its move, however, didn’t seem as forced as Bitcoin’s.

While the overall sentiment around Ethereum is bullish, the fact that it hit nearly the same high three times without passing it could indicate a possible short-term top and a retracement.

Traders should pay great attention to the area around above $1,125 and how ETH reacts to it.

ETH/USD 1-hour Chart

Ethereum’s technicals on the daily and weekly time-frames show an overall bullish tilt with no hints of neutrality coming from oscillators. On the other hand, the monthly and 4-hour time-frames show some signs of neutrality or even bearishness.

Technical Factors (4-hour Chart):

  • Price is above both its 50-period and its 21-period EMA
  • Price is between its middle and top Bollinger band
  • RSI is in the overbought area (72.01)
  • Volume is significantly above-average

3: $1,169                                      3: $932

Litecoin

Litecoin moved in a much more narrow range than Bitcoin and Ethereum. Its price slowly moved towards the upside (with one hiccup that brought its price from $163 to $155) and reached as high as $165. However, this move didn’t create new highs or approach the recent ones either.

At the moment, Litecoin looks like a cryptocurrency that mirrors Bitcoin’s moves, but with less volatility. While this brings a bit of perceived safety, the truth is that the profit potential is also greatly diminished.

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.

LTC/USD 1-day Technicals

Technical factors (4-hour Chart):

  • Its price is currently above both its 50-period EMA and its 21-period EMA
  • Price between its middle and top Bollinger band
  • RSI is nearing the overbought area (65.96)
  • Volume is above-average but descending
