Technical analysis



The largest cryptocurrency by market capitalization has spent the past day struggling to keep its current level after failing to break $9,251. As the volume increased greatly, Bitcoin managed to approach $9,251 and contest it, but only for a short period of time before falling all the way to $8,935. Its price is now stabilizing at around $9,050.

As we said in our yesterday’s article, traders should be wary of trading Bitcoin just based on its momentum as you never without confirmation. They should rather watch for confirmations or pullbacks and trade those (and those that did had a great trade yesterday).

Ethereum had quite a bad day, as Bitcoin’s move towards the downside pulled its price down as well, making it leave the ascending trade channel it was in. After falling out of the channel, Ethereum found support in the $225.4 support level, which held up nicely. The price is now moving up, possibly contesting the channel soon.

Ethereum traders should look for an opportunity in trading pullbacks or confirmations from ETH contesting the trend.

The third-largest cryptocurrency by market cap is continuing its path towards the downside by following the descending trading channel. XRP doesn’t have enough volume to tackle any resistance levels, and it seems that it is just bouncing off of the bottom and top channel lines.

There aren’t many XRP trading opportunities at the moment, but traders could sneak in a trade or two tradings this ranging move XRP is performing.
