Bitcoin

Bitcoin has spent the weekend steadily and slowly increasing and trying to reach past $10,500. While it has gotten past the $10,360 level once, it fell under it once the move couldn’t carry enough momentum to pass $10,500 as well. Bitcoin is currently fighting for the $360 level, with its price being right below it.

Our prediction regarding the price movement stays the same as Bitcoin did not move much over the course of the weekend. If Bitcoin doesn’t pass the $10,360 line soon, we should look for support at $9,600, and ultimately at the 200-day SMA ($9,080).

It is also important to note that, as the price movement has been muted for such a long time, it is extremely likely that, once the price moves past $10,360 or below $10,000 (with confidence), we might see a massive surge in volume extending that move. This will be a great opportunity for traders to trade on the way down, as well as the pullbacks.

Ethereum

Ethereum’s price movement in the past couple of days looks exactly like Bitcoins in direction, but with much higher volatility. The second-largest crypto by market cap took the weekend to push towards $400, which ended unsuccessfully. As the move could not carry the momentum forward, bears took over and brought the price to its current position, where it is bound in a narrow range by $360 to the downside and $371 to the upside.

Ethereum’s volatility certainly comes from people investing in DeFi as Ethereum was never as volatile as it is now. However, its moves are still following Bitcoin. This volatility might be a good opportunity for traders to push for some trades.

Ripple

XRP has not been much different from the aforementioned two cryptocurrencies. The third-largest cryptocurrency by market cap is still trading within a range bound by $0.235 to the downside and (more importantly) $0.2454 to the upside. XRP did have one a short period where it spiked above the resistance level, but the price quickly dwindled back down to its original level.

XRP is now fighting for the $0.2454 level, trying to surpass it. However, the extremely low volume shows us that this is will most likely not happen. Traders might have the opportunity to trade the pullback.
