Technical analysis

_______________________________________________________________________

Bitcoin

The largest cryptocurrency by market cap failed to break the 38.2% Fib retracement level, causing a pullback, which (as we mentioned in our previous article) brought its price to the $10,360 range. The pullback happened over the course of a few hours, and first tested the ascending (pink) resistance level, which got confirmed, triggering another push towards the downside.

Even though Bitcoin’s price went down slightly, the good news is that the $10,360 range has not been breached. If Bitcoin, on the other hand, breaks this level to the downside, we may expect a strong push towards the downside.

BTC/USD 4-hour Chart

Bitcoin’s short-term technicals remained tilted towards the sell-side ever since Bitcoin confirmed its position below the 38.2% Fib retracement. Its daily overview has become a bit more bearish as well, while its weekly and monthly overviews are extremely bullish.

BTC/USD 4-hour Technicals

  • Price is below its lower Bollinger band

Ethereum

Ethereum’s price movement has lost its structure ever since it broke the higher high/higher low pattern it has created. The second-largest cryptocurrency by market cap pushed towards the $371 resistance level, but failed to break it, causing a strong pullback which first tested $360, and then went all the way down to $340 as $360 failed to hold.

ETH/USD 4-hour Chart

While Ethereum’s 4-hour and 1-day technicals are now tilted towards the sell-side, its long-term overview seems extremely bullish. Its weekly or monthly technicals are both heavily tilted towards the buy-side.

Ripple

XRP’s trading in the upper part of the range-bound by $0.235 and $0.2454 got interrupted by the market tumbling, pushing its price down towards $0.235 as well. While the $0.235 level was passed in the most recent push towards the downside, it is still unsure whether the price will stabilize above or below it. Traders should be very careful and should either try “riding the wave” if XRP starts to drop, or they should wait until the picture becomes a bit more clear.

XRP/USD 4-hour Chart

XRP technicals are now quite uniformed, with both short-term and long-term technicals being bearish. However, its weekly outlook shows a slight tint of bullishness.
