Technical analysis

Bitcoin

Bitcoin has spent another day trying to push past the $10,360 resistance. However, every attempt in the past few days ended up in BTC passing the level, but then coming back under it due to being unable to confirm its position above. While the resistance level weakens each time Bitcoin attempts to pass it, it brings more bears to the game as most people intuitively trade in the direction opposite to the most recent failed attempt.

If Bitcoin doesn’t pass $10,360 soon, we should look for support at $9,600, and ultimately at the 200-day SMA ($9,080).

BTC/USD 4-hour Chart

Technical factors:

  • Price is slightly closer to the middle than the top Bollinger band
  • RSI is neutral (49.57)

3: $10,630                                 3: $9,600

Ethereum

Ethereum has, unlike Bitcoin, managed to gain some value as it reached past its $360 level. However, the move has ended and Ethereum is now stuck in a narrow range between $360 to the downside and $371 to the upside. The second-largest cryptocurrency by market cap has repeatedly tried to get past it, but with no success.

Ethereum’s break above $371 should establish a short-term bullishness, while a break below $360 is not as relevant, and we may look for $340 as the next support.

  • The price is near its top Bollinger band
  • RSI is neutral (52.77)
  • Volume is low and stable

3: $415                                      3: $300

Ripple

XRP failed to break its immediate resistance of $0.2454, which triggered a small pullback. The third-largest cryptocurrency by market cap doesn’t seem like it will be able to break this level any time soon unless it gets a massive influx of bulls. Unlike the aforementioned two cryptocurrencies, XRP is a bit more stable, and failing to push above a resistance level doesn’t necessarily mean that it will attempt a move towards the downside.

Technical factors:
  • The price is just below its 21-period EMA and well below its 50-period EMA
  • Price is sitting at the middle Bollinger band
  • RSI is neutral and descending (47.20)
  • Volume is low and stable
