Technical analysis

Bitcoin

Bitcoin’s 1-day chart shows that slight bullish sentiment took over after Bitcoin broke the triangle formation to the upside, pushing its price towards the 38.2% Fib retracement, which has proven as a resistance area. It is key for Bitcoin to confidently establish its price above this level if it wants to tackle $11,000 any time soon. However, if this does not happen, we may expect pullbacks to the $10,360 area.

BTC/USD 1-day Chart

If we zoom in to the 4-hour chart, we can see that the bulls are desperately trying to break the $10,850 level (38.2% Fib retracement), but to no avail. If the level does fall, however, we expect it to be on increased volume. Also, if that happens, the push will probably be extended, and traders can catch a lucrative trade on the way down while Bitcoin pulls back.

BTC/USD 4-hour Chart

Bitcoin’s technicals are showing strength all-around, with both shorter and longer time-frames showing bullish sentiment. This may be an indicator of Bitcoin’s current strength and a possible push past $10,850.

Ethereum

Ethereum has shown some strength in the past 24 hours. Its price pattern of making higher highs and higher lows has been interrupted by a lower high and a lower low the past day. On the other hand, its current price movement seems to ignore this bearish sign and is pushing higher towards the $371 level. It seems that, however, $371 will not be reached as the volume is descending and showing a lack of interest in any volatility from both bulls and bears.

When it comes to any form of price direction prediction, traders are torn between putting Ethereum’s current movement in an ascending trend and calling for a rally towards the upside, or calling the most recent lower high/lower low combo a break of the ascending trend, and calling for a push towards the downside.

ETH/USD 4-hour Chart

Both Ethereum’s short-term and long-term technical overviews are tilted towards the buy-side. While its longer-term technicals were always bullish, its 4-hour and 1-day overviews changed from bearish to bullish since we last reported, indicating that the bullish traders might be in the right when it comes to Ethereum’s next move.

Technical Factors (4-hour Chart):

  • The price is above its middle Bollinger band
  • RSI is pushing towards the overbought area (59.99)
  • Volume is below average

3: $400                                      3: $289

Ripple

XRP has been trading sideways near its $0.2454 resistance level and tried to break it several times. However, each time failed, and the cryptocurrency had to pull back towards the middle of the range and prepare for its next move. XRP’s low volume and low volatility may be confirming that it is just preparing for the next big move, but the direction is currently unknown. If it rallies towards the upside, traders can either join the extended leg up or trade the pullback. If the price moves down, traders can either trade a bounce off of the $0.235 or wait for a possible break of this support level.

XRP/USD 4-hour Chart

XRP technicals are seemingly always the most interesting and confusing. When it comes to short time-frames, the 4-hour outlook is mixed (but tilted slightly towards the buy-side), while the daily outlook is slightly bearish. Its weekly outlook is back to bullish, while its monthly technicals show bearish sentiment.
