Technical analysis



Bitcoin had a significant crash today. Its price managed to break down under $8,000 and even test the big $7,415 key support level. As that level managed to hold the bears off for now, Bitcoin is now trading just above it.

Bitcoin’s volume increased as the move down progressed. Its RSI level is extremely low and is sitting in the oversold territory for some time now. It currently has a value of 13.6.

The key level of $8,000 passed to the upside, while the major key level to the downside is not $7,415.

Ethereum also broke its immediate resistance in the past 24 hours. After spending the day trading just below its immediate resistance of 178.6, Ethereum’s price slipped down and made its way towards below the $163.5 line.

XRP’s ranging movements stopped today, as the price crashed down. Its price fell below its key support level of $0.245, which made XRP unstable as bears took over the market. Even though it fell all the way down to $0,236, XRP managed to recover slightly and is now trading just under its $0,245 support level. If, however, bulls do not manage to cross over it, XRP may attempt to break down the $0.235 support key level.

The key levels of $0.245 moved to the upside, while the key level of $0.235 is added to the downside levels.
