Technical analysis

_______________________________________________________________________

Bitcoin

The largest cryptocurrency by market cap has dropped in price due to the fundamentals, such as the US President Donald Trump being ill from COVID-19 as well as one of the largest trading platforms, BitMEX, being charged by the CFTC and the DOJ. However, the drop was only strong enough to push BTC to the $10,360 level, not below it. This is an extremely bullish sign as this support holding is key to the future development of Bitcoin.

Ever since then, Bitcoin has been slowly and steadily gaining in value but is being checked by the ascending trend line (pink). Traders should watch how BTC handles the trend line and if it surpasses it or keeps bouncing off of it.

BTC/USD 4-hour Chart

Bitcoin’s short-term technicals have changed to bullish over the weekend. Its longer-term technicals, however, have remained completely bullish, except for the daily outlook, which is just slightly more neutral.

3: $11,000                                  3: $10,015

Ethereum

Ethereum’s price has acted similar to Bitcoin’s movements, with Ether plummeting on Oct 2 and dropping to the $334 support level. However, bulls have taken over the market, and Ethereum has been slowly rising in the past couple of days. The prediction that options traders made regarding Ether trading below $360 and above $340 during October is still valid, and even more likely.

Traders should pay attention to any increase in volume, as that will spark the next move. The current volume is unable to bring any volatility to Ethereum.

ETH/USD 4-hour Chart

Ethereum’s 4-hour outlook has changed to slightly bullish, while its 1-day overview remains tilted towards the sell-side. However, its long-term overview seems extremely bullish, as its weekly or monthly technicals are both heavily tilted towards the buy-side.

ETH/USD 4-hour Technicals

Technical Factors (4-hour Chart):
  • The price is right below its 50-period and right above its 21-period EMA
  • The price is slightly above its middle Bollinger band
  • RSI is neutral (50.85)
  • Volume is below average

3: $400                                      3: $289

Ripple

XRP has had an amazing day and even managed to get in the top3 daily gainers section. The third-largest cryptocurrency by market capitalization started off the weekend with its price dropping and hitting $0.228. However, the price quickly recovered and hovered below the $0.235 level until it finally broke. The push towards the upside was strong and with high volume, which helped XRP reach as high as $0.254.

XRP is now trying to consolidate above the $0.2454 level, which traders should pay attention to. An additional spark of volatility might be good for trading, regardless of XRP’s direction.

XRP/USD 4-hour Chart

XRP technicals are now quite uniformed and bullish, with both short-term and long-term technicals being completely tilted towards the buy-side. However, its monthly outlook still remains bearish.

XRP/USD 4-hour Technicals

Technical factors (4-hour Chart):
  • The price is above both its 50-period EMA and its 21-period EMA

  • RSI is heading towards the oversold territory (67.36)
  • Volume is above average
