Technical analysis



The largest cryptocurrency by market capitalization has broken the range it was bound withing after some time struggling to do so, passing over $9,000 and reaching almost $9,500. Bitcoin was trading at the top line of its ascending trend for some time, constantly testing the resistance level. Today has been the day where the price broke out, went above $8,980, retested it, and then skyrocketed. That trading opportunity was exactly as described in our previous articles.

Bitcoin is currently near the oversold territory on the 4-hour chart.

Key levels to the upside                    Key levels to the downside

1: $9,580                                           1: $9,250

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

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


Ethereum, led by Bitcoin’s price surge, has broken out above the descending channel it was in for some time now. While the move was not nearly as strong as Bitcoin’s, it was just enough to push through the channel and stay above $198.

The $198 support level is being tested at the time of writing, and price dropping below it with increased volume might be a good trading opportunity.

Key levels to the upside                    Key levels to the downside

1: $198                                               1: $193.6

2: $217.6                                           2: $185

3: $225.4                                            3: $178.65


XRP has followed the market in terms of direction, but not in terms of intensity. The third-largest cryptocurrency by market cap followed Bitcoin on its way up and increased in price as well. While it did manage to conquer $0.2, the move can (in no way, shape, or form) be called strong.

XRP is now trading within a very narrow channel, bound by $0.205 to the upside and $0.2 (which it is constantly testing) to the downside.

Key levels to the upside                    Key levels to the downside

1: $0.205                                           1: $0.2

2: $0.214                                           2: $0.19

3: $0.227                                            3: $0.178
