Technical analysis

Bitcoin

The largest cryptocurrency by market cap has spent another day by slowly gaining in value. The bulls were patient as Bitcoin approached the ascending trend line, ultimately passing it. Bitcoin’s short-term future will be decided by how he manages the $10,850 level. If the level gets tackled and Bitcoin stays above it confidently, we can expect a push towards $11,000-$11,300, or even higher. However, if that level doesn’t hold up, Bitcoin will return to the $10,360 level. Traders should pay attention to any spikes in volume.

Ethereum

Ethereum’s price is slowly rising ever since the drop on Oct 2. However, the volume is slowly descending, turning Ethereum’s moves more and more dull. We may expect more slow and sideways movement until the volume picks up the pace.

Traders should pay attention to any increase in volume, as well as to Ethereum’s movement between $334 and $360.

ETH/USD 4-hour Chart

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

Ripple

XRP has had another amazing day, where its price moved further towards the upside and reached as high as $0.26. If the price manages to stay at this level, its next resistance will be found at the $0.266 level. However, a pullback is expected, where the area between $0.2454 and $0.251 has strong support.

It seems that the bulls have gathered around XRP on news of the company launching a cryptocurrency exchange on top of the XRP ledger, as well as because of the fact that XRP is very close to reaching a golden cross (50-period moving average crossing the 200-period moving average to the upside).

XRP/USD 4-hour Chart

XRP technicals are now tilted towards the buy-side, with the exception of its monthly outlook, which remains bearish.
