What happened in the past 24 hours

Bitcoin options market speaks about the BTC price 

The Bitcoin options market spoke about Bitcoin’s price in the future (or at least their prediction). The options market, which is mostly dominated by Deribit and CME, predicted a 9% chance of Bitcoin reaching past its all-time high of $20,000 by the end of the year.

As Bitcoin has a tendency to prolong its rally six to eight months after its halving event, Bitcoin options traders exercise cautious trading in the medium-term.


Technical analysis



The largest cryptocurrency by market capitalization spent the past 24 hours being indecisive in terms of where its future path will be. It reached past the $9,735 resistance line, turning it to support once again. However, the main trend isn’t decided quite yet, as these small support and resistance levels aren’t strong enough to determine a trend.

Bitcoin’s volume dropped over the past 24 hours, while its RSI level stayed pretty stable around the 55 mark.

Ethereum didn’t make any major moves in the past 24 hours. The second-largest cryptocurrency by market cap is taking its time to consolidate and prepare for the next move (to either side).

Ethereum has recently gained most of its value based on fundamentals. ETH traders should take that into consideration before doing any trading just based on technicals.

XRP is proving that it has become a relatively stable cryptocurrency day in and day out. The third-largest cryptocurrency by market cap almost didn’t move at all, hovering around the $0.205 level. While it has spent most of the day below it, $0.205 level is now acting as slight support.

XRP’s volume decreased slightly in the past 24 hours, while its RSI level currently stands at the value of 56.
