Bitcoin

The largest cryptocurrency by market capitalization has had quite an amazing day filled with volatility and extremely high bull presence. Fueled by PayPal’s announcement that it will enable its users to buy,  sell and hold crypto,  Bitcoin skyrocketed and reached as high as $13,235 before pulling back. It’s currently trying to consolidate just under the $12,870 resistance level.

Any skepticism regarding whether the bull market has started has been shattered with Bitcoin’s most recent move. However, while this move was intense, Bitcoin will need a lot of great news, adoption, and ultimately time to reach its all-time highs.

At the moment, traders should look at how Bitcoin handles the pullback and trade-off of that.


BTC/USD 1-day Chart

Bitcoin’s technical overview is very strongly tilted towards the buy-side on longer time-frames (weekly and monthly), while its short-term overviews are slightly more neutral.

BTC/USD 1-day Technicals

Technical factors (4-hour Chart):
  • Price is far above its 50-period EMA and at its 21-period EMA
  • Price above its top Bollinger band
  • RSI is extremely overbought (81.74)
  • Volume is extremely elevated

2: $13,200                                 2: $12,300

3: $14,000                                  3: $12,000

Ethereum

Ethereum has followed Bitcoin’s lead and pushed towards the upside, though with much less strength. Its price ultimately reached the $400 resistance before pulling back slightly. It is currently trying to consolidate right under the $400 level, which is still a great increase in price since yesterday when Ether was fighting to stay above $378.

Ethereum traders should pay attention to how the second-largest cryptocurrency by market cap handles its immediate resistance level, as well as an eventual further pullback.

ETH/USD 4-hour Chart

Ethereum’s technicals on all time-frames show bullishness, with its 4-hour and long-term technicals being a bit more tilted towards the neutral position, while its 1-day overview is completely bullish.

Technical Factors (4-hour Chart):
  • The price is far above its 50-period and its 21-period EMA
  • Price is at the top Bollinger band
  • RSI is close to overbought (66.91)
  • Volume is elevated

2: $415                                     2: $371

3: $420                                      3: $360

Ripple

The fourth-largest cryptocurrency by market cap has, like yesterday, used the momentum that Bitcoin has provided to push further up. Its price has established itself above the $0.2454 support level and pushed past $0.25. However, the $0.26 resistance level has not fallen, and XRP is now consolidating at the ~$0.255 level.

XRP’s upside is a zone of strong resistance, which this cryptocurrency will hardly surpass without Bitcoin’s push. XRP traders should pay attention to Bitcoin’s moves while focusing on XRP’s moves towards the downside.

XRP/USD 4-hour Chart

XRP’s technicals have changed quite a bit since our last report. Its 4-hour, 1-day, and weekly overviews are strongly tilted towards the buy-side, while its monthly overview is still bearish with a slight hint of neutrality.

XRP/USD 1-day Technicals

Technical factors (4-hour Chart):
  • The price far above its 50-period EMA and above its 21-period EMA
  • Price is at its top Bollinger band
  • RSI is close to overbought (65.61)
  • Volume is below average
