Technical analysis

_______________________________________________________________________

Bitcoin

The largest cryptocurrency by market cap has created a double top, which triggered a pullback from the recent highs. Not only has the price retraced to the sub-$19,000 level, but it has also broken the $18,500 support level. The price will most likely end up below the $17,850 level, as the market is calling for a pullback for quite some time. However, if the market recovers, we can expect the price to end up between $17,850 and $18,500.

While shorting Bitcoin might be a good profit-making opportunity at the moment, trading against the long-term trend is extremely risky. However, thinking about hedging versus any downturns might be a good option at the moment.

BTC/USD 1-hour Chart

Bitcoin’s 4-hour, daily, and weekly technicals are heavily tilted towards the buy-side and show no signs of neutrality or bearishness. On the other hand, its monthly technicals are showing some signs of neutrality.

BTC/USD 1-day Technicals

Technical factors (1-hour Chart):
  • Price is far below its 50-period EMA and its 21-period EMA
  • Price slightly below its lower Bollinger band
  • RSI is extremely oversold (23.98)
  • Volume is average (one candle spike)

2: $19000                                  2: $17,450

3: $19500                                   3: $17,000

Ethereum

While Ethereum did follow Bitcoin to the downside, both in price direction and severity of the move, the situation doesn’t look that bad. The second-largest cryptocurrency by market cap has started its pullback after failing to stay above $600, culminating in a full-blown dump from $570 to $505. However, the ascending (red) line held up, and ETH reclaimed previous levels and is currently consolidating around $530.

Ethereum’s current outlook is very bullish, but any sharp move to the downside coming from Bitcoin will affect it in a major way. Traders should pay close attention to Bitcoin’s moves if they want to trade Ether.

ETH/USD 1-hour Chart

Ethereum’s technicals are a bit confusing, as its daily and monthly overviews are completely bullish, while its weekly overview shows slight signs of neutrality. Its 4-hour technicals, however, are pointing towards the sell-side.

ETH/USD 1-day Technicals

Technical Factors (4-hour Chart):
  • The price is below both its 50-period and its 21-period EMA
  • Price is below its bottom Bollinger band
  • RSI is extremely oversold (19.47)
  • Volume is above average
Key levels to the upside          Key levels to the downside

1: $600                                     1: $510

2: $630                                     2: $500 

3: $735                                      3: $490

Ripple

The fourth-largest cryptocurrency by market cap has performed similarly to the aforementioned two cryptocurrencies. XRP has posted lower highs three times in a row while testing the $0.625 support level each time. However, the last time XRP went towards this level, bears took over and pushed the price further down. XRP bears have seemingly reached exhaustion, and the cryptocurrency is now consolidating around the $0.575 level.

Trading XRP is not advised as trading Bitcoin is (at the moment) both potentially more profitable and more straightforward.

XRP/USD 1-hour Chart

XRP’s technicals on all time-frames are tilted towards the buy-side, with its daily overview being the most bullish time-frame. Its other time-frames show signs of neutrality or even slight bearishness.

XRP/USD 1-day Technicals

Technical factors (4-hour Chart):
  • The price is far below both its 50-period EMA and its 21-period EMA
  • Price is slightly below its bottom Bollinger band
  • RSI is close to being oversold (31.85)
  • Volume is above average

1: $0.625                                   1: $0.475
