Bitcoin

Bitcoin has made a move towards the upside, passing through its $10,360 and $10,500 levels. As we mentioned in our previous articles, this is a huge bullish sign, and the overall indicators are showing that as well. If the bulls regain momentum, we can expect a push towards $11,000 once the consolidation continues.

With that being said, Bitcoin’s current price movement got stopped at the $10,850 level. While this does mean that Bitcoin bulls have encountered some resistance, it certainly does not mean that the overall trend is over. Bitcoin has shown great resistance at the $10,000 psychological level, which prompted this push towards the upside.

Ethereum

Ethereum was extremely volatile in the past 24 hours. Its price movements were quite hectic, with the price pushing past the $371 level and reaching the $385 mark before coming back down to restest the newly-conquered level, only to go up again and down again. Ethereum is currently supported by both the 50-period and 21-period moving averages, which are right below its price level. On top of that, the $371 level was turned to a support level after a clean confirmation move.

While its technicals show a short-term buy opportunity, the long-term technicals are still tilted towards the sell side. On top of that, Ethereum has created a nice bear flag formation, which (if it turns out to be correct) can prompt a 35% move towards the downside.

3: $445                                      3: $340

Ripple

XRP has managed to push itself above the $0.2454 level once again, but still hasn’t confirmed its position above it. A confirmation above this level and a slight push towards the upside will be crucial for the future of XRP, as many traders are calling for bearish scenarios and drawing a bearish flag (though this flag is a lot less picture-perfect as the one on the ETH/USD chart).

XRP is showing signs of slight short-term bullishness, while its longer-term technicals are still pointing towards the downside.

  • RSI is neutral and pushing towards the upside(54.88)
  • Volume is extremely low, but stable
