Technical analysis

Bitcoin

The largest cryptocurrency by market capitalization had a rather slow day, unlike the past days, which passed in BTC making significant gains. The volume is slowly fading away while the price is trying to find resistance. Bitcoin fell under $11,000 and is currently consolidating above the $10,855 support level. However, it is still unsure if Bitcoin will stay above it or fall under.

BTC traders should look for a trade opportunity when BTC breaks $10,855 to the downside or $11,090 to the upside.

  • Price is between its top B.B. and its middle B.B (20-period SMA)
  • RSI is elevated (69.73
  • Volume greatly increased (descending)

3: $11,630                                3: $9,870

Ethereum

Ethereum also had a slow day, while its price drop reflected Bitcoin’s drop (percentage-wise). The second-largest cryptocurrency by market capitalization is trying to consolidate around the $315 mark, while its volume is fading. Ethereum has strong support at $302, which might get challenged shortly.

Ethereum traders should look for a trade opportunity after the cryptocurrency is done with consolidating.

                                                 3: $278

Ripple

Unlike Bitcoin and Ethereum, the third-largest cryptocurrency by market cap had quite a good day, which brought its price above $0.227 and $0.235 resistance levels. XRP made a move, which was sparked by an influx of buyers. The move is still not over, and XRP is fighting to stay above $0.235, though that is unlikely unless the cryptocurrency pushes its price towards the $0.245 level.

XRP traders can look for an opportunity in pullbacks after the bullish move.
