Technical analysis



Bitcoin experienced almost no price movement in the past 24 hours. The price was completely flat while the volume lowered slightly. This area of no movement happened ever since Bitcoin stepped into the $5,300 area.

Bitcoin’s volume is quite low, while its RSI level is in the middle of the value spectrum (currently at 45).

Key levels to the upside                    Key levels to the downside

1: $5,960                                           1: $5,000

2: $6,640                                           2: $4,300

3: $6,850                                            3: 3,100


Ethereum did pretty much the same as Bitcoin by mirroring its movement (or lack thereof). The second-largest cryptocurrency did nothing but move sideways for the whole day, with the price hovering right below the $122.5 resistance.

Ethereum’s volume decreased further, while its RSI level is currently at 40. There were no changes in key levels due to no movement to the upside or downside.

3: $168                                           


XRP, for the first time in a while, didn’t just follow the general direction of the market but actually mirrored Bitcoin’s and Ethereum’s movement. The lack of volume resulted in sideways trading with no price movement whatsoever. The third-largest cryptocurrency is moving in a range between $0.1 and $0.165.

XRP’s volume decreased even more in the past 24 hours, while its RSI level is currently at the 44 mark.
