Technical analysis



The largest cryptocurrency by market capitalization had quite turbulent weekend as its price dropped below $9,000. The 4th failed attempt of going above $10,000 on May 20 confirmed the appearance of another bearish turn for Bitcoin. However, the most recent events regarding Bitcoin mining, Satoshi Nakamoto and many more made bulls scared and bears more eager to sell their Bitcoin.

The price found support at the $8,650 level, with it currently pushing towards $8,820.

While Ethereum did follow Bitcoin in its move towards the downside, it did not quite match its intensity. The second-largest cryptocurrency by market cap retraced as bears took over the market, but only fell in price up to the $198 support level. It has consolidated since and even made moves towards regaining previous highs.

Ethereum’s volume increased greatly during the price drop but normalized as the price found support.

XRP was, just like the aforementioned Ethereum, matching Bitcoin in price direction, but not in intensity. The third-largest cryptocurrency by market cap entered a short bull period, which brought it to $0.19 levels before recovering to a price closer to $0.195.

XRP’s volume was normal throughout the price drop, while its RSI level bounced from the oversold territory to (at the time of writing) 37.7.
