Technical analysis

Bitcoin

The largest cryptocurrency by market capitalization had quite a slow day. While its price went above the descending resistance line, the price itself did not move that much. On top of that, the move seemingly got stopped by the $9,251 resistance level (at least for now). The decreasing volume while being stopped by both moving averages and the resistance level suggests that the move reached exhaustion and that $9,251 will not be tackled (in the very near future).

BTC traders should look for a trade opportunity after the largest cryptocurrency passes $9,251.

3: $9,735                                  3: $8,820

Ethereum

Ethereum was even less volatile than Bitcoin, with its price hardly even moving throughout the day. The second-largest cryptocurrency by market capitalization spent the day sitting on the $240 level while the bears and bulls were fighting on whether the price will consolidate below or above it. The volume dwindled as time passed, and ETH seems like it has more chance of remaining under $240. However, there is still a chance for bulls to win.

Ethereum traders should look for an opportunity after the fight for $240 ends.

3: $260                                     3: $218

Ripple

The third-largest cryptocurrency by market cap hardly moved at all after the price drop of July 13, which brought the price below the $0.2 threshold yet again. XRP is hovering below the $0.2 level for two days now, without any possibility of breaking it yet.

XRP traders can look for an opportunity to trade when the volume increases, and the trend becomes clear enough, as the low volume and volatility are certainly not ideal for trading at the moment.

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 above 21-period and below the 50-period EMA
  • Price right under the middle B.B. (20-period SMA)
  • RSI is neutral (46.8)
  • Volume lower than average
