What happened in the past 24 hours?


The past 24 hours were characterized by a slow price movement of the crypto sector. However, a lot of important news reached the public’s eye. Bitcoin Miners finished up on Sichuan’s migration, triggering a hash rate spike of 42% in the past 2 days. Ethereum has been performing great, and news of its 2.0 version is all over the place, with the most recent one being that the number of addresses surpassing 32 ETH (the amount required to be a validator) is at an all-time high. On the other hand, Bitcoin SV brought bad news to the sector, as its multi-sig feature got compromised, causing enormous losses for its users.


Technical analysis



The largest cryptocurrency by market capitalization is trading in a very uncertain zone at the moment. Its price has most likely created a double top formation, indicating a possible pullback in the short-term. This prediction is even more convincing as we can see that Bitcoin can’t get past the $15,480 resistance after trying for over 12 hours. However, the overall sentiment around the cryptocurrency is extremely bullish, and its downside is protected by the ascending (yellow) line.

With that being said, traders should wait for Bitcoin to choose its direction and trade only if Bitcoin spikes above $15,480 or below $15,420 with significant volume.

BTC/USD 4-hour Chart

Bitcoin’s technicals are bullish on all time-frames. The only difference compared to yesterday was that every single time-frame is completely bullish and with almost no neutrality present (as opposed to yesterday, when neutral sentiment could be seen on some overviews).

BTC/USD 1-day Technicals

Technical factors (4-hour Chart):
  • Price is above its 50-period EMA and right at its 21-period EMA
  • Price is at its middle Bollinger band
  • RSI is neutral (53.60)
  • Volume is average
Key levels to the upside          Key levels to the downside

1: $16,400                                 1: $15,480

2: $16,665                                 2: $14,640

3: $17,260                                  3: $14,100


Ethereum has been playing around the upper line of the ascending channel (yellow dotted line) and constantly going above and under it. At the moment, its price is under the line, and any attempts of getting past it have been extinguished quickly. This most likely means that Ethereum failed to establish itself above the $451 level, which could trigger a correction towards the 50-period moving average, and ultimately the bottom channel line.

Traders should pay close attention to volume, as they will not have a lot of time to join in on the trade towards the downside. Placing a stop-loss right above the ascending channel top line should be a “safe bet.”

ETH/USD 4-hour Chart

Ethereum’s technicals are tilted heavily towards the buy-side on its 4-hour and monthly overview, while the neutral sentiment is heavily present on its daily and weekly charts.

Technical Factors (4-hour Chart):
  • The price is above its 50-period and slightly above its 21-period EMA
  • Price is at its middle Bollinger band
  • RSI is neutral (55.58)
  • Volume is slightly elevated
Key levels to the upside          Key levels to the downside

1: $451                                     1: $445

2: $470                                     2: $420 

3: $490                                      3: $415


The fourth-largest cryptocurrency by market cap continued its consolidation phase right above the $0.2454 level, which is considered a major pivot point in XRP’s trading in the recent past. XRP created a double bottom at this level, possibly indicating a push towards the $0.26 in the short term.

Traders should still be safe to assume that XRP will trade within the range and that they can trade the sideways action. However, if the volume increases drastically, a move towards the upside is much more likely (if not fueled by Bitcoin’s move).

XRP/USD 4-hour Chart

XRP’s technicals on the 4-hour, daily, and weekly time-frame are all tilted towards the buy-side. However, neutral sentiment can be seen in all of them. On the other hand, its monthly overview also has the same neutrality amount but is tilted towards the sell-side.

XRP/USD 1-day Technicals

Technical factors (4-hour Chart):
  • The price slightly above its 50-period EMA and at its 21-period EMA
  • Price is slightly below its middle Bollinger band
  • RSI is neutral (49.69)
  • Volume is average
Key levels to the upside          Key levels to the downside

1: $0.26                                     1: $0.2454

2: $0.266                                   2: $0.235

3: $0.27                                    3: $0.227
