Technical analysis

_______________________________________________________________________

Bitcoin

The largest cryptocurrency by market capitalization had a red day, as bears pushed the price back down towards the $9,000. The descending line Bitcoin broke previously fell under the bearish pressure, and Bitcoin started rushing towards the downside. The bearish move got stopped by the $9,120 level, which held up quite nicely. However, bears have not reached exhaustion, which means that the $9,120 level is not safe yet.

BTC trades should look for the retracement move for a safe trade.

BTC/USD 4-hour Chart

2: $9,735                                 2: $9,120

3: $9,870                                  3: $8,980

Ethereum

Ethereum made a move towards the downside as well, falling below the ascending line it previously broke, as well as below the $240 level. The move was (for now) stopped by the 4-hour 50-period moving average, and ETH seems to be starting a consolidation phase near the $240 level.

Ethereum traders should look for an opportunity in trading pullbacks from the moving averages or horizontal levels. They should also pay close attention to Bitcoin’s movement, as BTC is mostly the main factor that causes ETH’s volatility.

Technical Factors:

  • Price above the 50-period EMA and below the 21-period EMA
  • Price slightly below the middle B.B. (20-period SMA)
  • RSI near the middle (45.8)
  • Increased volume

3: $260                                     3: $217.7

Ripple

The third-largest cryptocurrency by market cap ended up in the red as well. After bulls reaching exhaustion at $0.212, bears took over and caused the price to reach the lows of $0.192, therefore breaking $0.205 and $0.2 support levels. XRP has strong support at the $0.19 line (both the horizontal support line and the 50-period moving average are there), so there is almost no chance XRP will move down (unless BTC makes a sharp move down).

XRP traders can look for an opportunity to trade in a range, as XRP is pretty much bound within $0.19 to $0.20 range unless BTC makes a move.

XRP/USD 4-hour Chart

Technical factors:

  • XRP in a mid-term descending trend (though it broke the trend in the short-term)
  • XRP lacks strong support levels below $0.178
  • Price is below the 21 and above the 50-period EMA
  • Price slightly below the middle B.B. (20-period SMA)
  • RSI is neutral (50.6)
  • Increased volume
