What happened in the past 24 hours?

Ethereum had quite a bad day, as its consensus reached an unexpected hard fork. This issue is considered the one holding the most weight ever since the DAO debacle from 4 years ago. The developers are still looking into the issue, and things will be fully understood at a later date.

Ethereum essentially hard forked right when its developers introduced a new update to the chain, and those who haven’t upgraded yet (including Blockchair, Infura, and other miners) got stuck in a minority chain for around 30 blocks (2 hours).

Technical analysis

_______________________________________________________________________

Bitcoin

The largest cryptocurrency by market capitalization has pushed towards the upside, reaching as far as $15,990 but not being able to break the $16,000 mark. This failure to break its immediate resistance level has caused another (third) top to form, marking a possible short-term trend reversal as a possibility if Bitcoin doesn’t move up quickly.

Traders should trade carefully around this level and be prepared to trade the pullback or the spike. While these “, ride the trend” trades are hard to predict in terms of when they start, they are easy to trade once the entry happens.

BTC/USD 4-hour Chart

Bitcoin’s technicals are bullish on all time-frames. However, its 4-hour and monthly time-frames are completely bullish, while its daily and weekly overviews are showing signs of neutrality or even slight bear presence.

3: $16,700                                  3: $14,100

Ethereum

Ethereum has stayed above the top line of its ascending channel but could not break the resistance zone above $470. However, its price didn’t react negatively to the news of the algorithm failure and an unplanned mini hard fork, which is quite a bullish outcome of events.

Ethereum traders should watch out for how the second-largest cryptocurrency by market cap navigates the range between the top line of the ascending channel and its $470 resistance level.

ETH/USD 4-hour Chart

Ethereum’s technicals are bullish on all time-frames, with its 4-hour and monthly time-frames being completely bullish and its daily and weekly overviews showing signs of neutrality or even slight bear presence.

3: $500                                      3: $420

Ripple

The fourth-largest cryptocurrency by market cap has suffered a minor pullback after failing to break its immediate resistance level ($0.26). XRP is still trading within a range bound by $0.2454 to the downside and $0.26 to the upside, while its range is even more narrow lately, as its price is hovering only the top portion of the range.

Traders still have the opportunity to trade XRP’s sideways action without much risk. On the other hand, if the volume does increase drastically, a move towards the upside is much more likely, unless Bitcoin’s potential move down brings every other crypto down with it.

XRP/USD 4-hour Chart

XRP’s technicals on the 4-hour, daily, and weekly time-frame are bullish with slight hints of neutrality. On the other hand, its monthly overview is heavily tilted towards the sell-side.

XRP/USD 1-day Technicals

Technical factors (4-hour Chart):
  • The price above its 50-period EMA and slightly above its 21-period EMA
  • Price is slightly above its middle Bollinger band
