Technical analysis

_______________________________________________________________________

Bitcoin

The largest cryptocurrency by market capitalization has spent its weekend building up a bull presence and trying to push towards (and past) the $11,500 resistance level. However, the move failed, and Bitcoin is now trading just under the resistance line. With that being said, the volume that followed this move was incredibly low, which implies that a bigger move is ahead, and that traders should pay attention to what happens with the volume in the near future.

Bitcoin will most likely either go up or stay above $11,300, as many analysts say that Bitcoin is done with its sub-$11,000 area. However, we do have to pay attention to the Bitcoin CME Futures Gap.

BTC/USD 1-day Chart

Bitcoin’s technical overview is tilted towards the buy-side on every single time-frame. While its 4-hour and 1-day time-frames are showing neutral bullishness, its weekly and monthly sentiment is extremely positive.

3: $12,000                                  3: $11,000

Ethereum

Ethereum’s price movement throughout the weekend looked a lot like Bitcoin’s, but with a twist. The second-largest cryptocurrency by market cap moved towards the downside and (just like Bitcoin) created three lower highs on the way down. However, unlike Bitcoin, Ethereum has broken the downtrend and shot up in recent hours, though only to be stopped by the $378 resistance level. While there is still a chance for Ethereum to break this level, it will most likely be stuck below it (possibly within a range bound by $371 and $378) in the short-term.

ETH/USD 4-hour Chart

Ethereum’s technicals are showing a tilt towards the buy-side on all time-frames, with lower time-frames being more positive, while longer time-frames being more tilted towards the neutral stance (mostly oscillators).

3: $415                                      3: $334

Ripple

XRP spent the weekend mostly trading sideways or rising a little after a whole week of price drops. The fourth-largest cryptocurrency by market capitalization fell under the $0.2454 and stayed below it over the weekend, and even though it is moving towards it, the current volume would not support a break of such a major resistance level.

Many analysts are calling for even more downward movement from XRP, justifying it by saying that this is a continuation of a trend dating back from 2018. The reduced volatility and range-bound trading seem to be confirming this thesis.

XRP/USD 4-hour Chart

XRP’s technicals are extremely bearish. Its 4-hour and daily sentiment being tilted towards the sell-side fully, while its weekly and monthly overviews are showing some signs of neutrality, though they are also heavily bearish.

XRP/USD 1-day Technicals

Technical factors (4-hour Chart):
  • The price is below both its 50-period EMA and its 21-period EMA
  • Price is at its middle Bollinger band
  • RSI is neutral (42.17)
  • Volume is below average
