Technical analysis



After a pretty stable weekend of trading just above $5,000, Bitcoin’s price experienced some turbulence. At first, it seemed that the bulls have taken the lead and Bitcoin started moving up. However, the move slowed down as Bitcoin aproached $6,000. This newfound resistance got confirmed as Bitcoin’s price bounced back to $5,300, and then began falling even further. The largest cryptocurrency managed to go under the major support level of $5,000, which is a major psychological point. If the price continues going down this way, we can expect a major pinpoint to be the low of $3,100.

Bitcoin’s volume is average, except during the times of the price increases or decreases when it goes up. Its RSI level is currently in the oversold territory on the 4-hour chart.

Key levels to the upside                    Key levels to the downside

1: $5,000                                           1: $4,300

2: $5,960                                           2: $3,100

3: $6,640                                            


Ethereum shared a similar faith to Bitcoin. The second-largest cryptocurrency went above the $128 resistance level, but the bullish move quickly got shut down as bears took over. Ethereum then fell under the $128 and $122.5 support levels and is now trading just under $110.

Ethereum’s volume is quite low, while its RSI is in the oversold area on the 4-hour chart.

Key levels to the upside                    Key levels to the downside

1: $122.5                                             1: $100

2: $128                                              2: $80 

3: $168                                           


Even though XRP almost mirrored the move that Ethereum made as far as price movement goes, it is in a much better spot at the moment. The third-largest cryptocurrency tried moving up but got stopped at the $0.165 resistance level. Right after that, the price started falling, and XRP reached the price of around $0.135. However, the price is slowly recovering, and the move to the downside didn’t break and support levels.

XRP’s volume is low, while its RSI level just went out of the oversold area on the 4-hour chart.

Key levels to the upside                    Key levels to the downside

1: $0.165                                            1: $0.1

2: $0.19

3: $0.2
