Technical analysis



The largest cryptocurrency by market capitalization has spent the day plunging to its two-week lows, falling as low as $9,070. The $9,251 line has, however, held up, and BTC is now consolidating above it. The downward-facing move should be over for now as RSI stepped into oversold while the volume faded.

Bitcoin’s volume increased multiple-fold over the course of the price dump but has since returned to its average levels.

Key levels to the upside                    Key levels to the downside

1: $9,580                                           1: $9,251

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

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


Ethereum followed Bitcoin’s initiative to move towards the downside and fell as low as $225. However, the $225.4 support line held up and stopped the move from going any further. Ethereum has recovered slightly and is now trading at a $233 level.

Ethereum’s volume increased drastically during the peak of the move but has since returned to normal. Its RSI level has entered the oversold territory but has (again) returned above it once the pressure faded.

Key levels to the upside                    Key levels to the downside

1: $240                                               1: $225.4

2: $251.4                                           2: $217.6

3: $260                                               3: $198


XRP did not stray away from other cryptocurrencies in terms of market direction. The third-largest cryptocurrency by market cap has broken the range it was trading in for a long time as it fell below the $0.2 support level. The downward-facing move reached $0.184 before going up. XRP is still trying to find equilibrium and a place to consolidate at, and it is still uncertain whether that will be above or below the $0.19 level.

Key levels to the upside                    Key levels to the downside

1: $0.2                                               1: $0.19

2: $0.205                                           2: $0.178
