Technical analysis

Bitcoin

The largest cryptocurrency by market cap has spent a day declining in price slightly, with many analysts speculating that it was because of US President Donald Trump’s tweet on his rejection of the most recent stimulus proposal. Analysts that are less concerned about fundamentals saw a potential death cross as well as Bitcoin not being able to confidently pass the ascending trend (pink line), ultimately causing a small crash.

For the time being, Bitcoin will remain range-bound by the $10,360 level to the downside and $10,850 level to the upside as main support and resistance levels.

BTC/USD 4-hour Chart

Bitcoin’s short-term technicals have turned more bullish than yesterday, with both its 4-hour and 1-day overview tilting towards the downside. However, its longer-term technicals have remained bullish.

BTC/USD 4-hour Technicals

Technical factors (4-hour Chart):

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

Ethereum

Ethereum was trading on increased volume in the past 24 hours, with the volume starting to ramp up as the second-largest cryptocurrency by market cap was unable to break the top Bollinger Band line. This caused a slight crash, which pulled back Ether to its support level of $334, which held up quite nicely.

As we mentioned many times now, traders should pay attention to any increase in volume, but should ultimately trade Ethereum’s movements between $334 and $360.

ETH/USD 4-hour Chart

Ethereum’s short-term and long-term technical outlook looks very similar to Bitcoin’s. Its short term technicals (4-hour and 1-day) are heavily tilted towards the sell-side, while its weekly and monthly outlooks are still quite bullish.

Ripple

XRP had a pullback day, where its price tried to find equilibrium after two days of pushing towards the upside. The third-largest cryptocurrency by market cap traded on increased volume, which indicated that the pullback would be more severe. The price has reached the $0.2454 support level and briefly fell under it as well. It is yet uncertain whether XRP has finished its pullback phase and remained above $0.2454, or if the fight for this level still continues.

XRP/USD 4-hour Chart

XRP 4-hour, daily, and weekly technicals are now tilted towards the buy-side, while its monthly outlook remains tilted towards the sell-side.
