Technical analysis

Bitcoin

Bitcoin has, as we said in our previous article, pushed towards the upside, attempting an $11,000 break. While it has broken the $11,000 psychological resistance, it got stopped out at the $11,090 resistance level. Bitcoin will have to make a confirmation move in order to stay above $11,000, which may be hard since it will be in such a tight range ($11,000 to $11,090).

Bitcoin’s short-term indicators are extremely bullish, but its longer-term indicators are also tilted towards the bull side. Traders should look out for how Bitcoin handles the $11,000 level and trade off of it.

3: $11,460                                  3: $10,500

Ethereum

As we said in our previous article, it would take a strong push towards the upside to pull Ethereum out of the 35% downside prognosis, which many trades called since the ETH/USD pair created a bear flag. However, Bitcoin’s push towards $11,000 prompted Ethereum to push towards the upside and get back into the range.

With this being said, Ethereum hasn’t confirmed its position above the bear flag lower line, which is because the $371 level it passed will remain in our “key level to the upside” section until ETH confirms otherwise. Still, its short-term indicators have changed to a bit more bullish scenario.

  • The price is right at its top Bollinger band
  • RSI is neutral but pushing towards the upside (59.82)
  • Volume is low and stable

Ripple

XRP had an amazing day, with its price pushing over 7% on the day. The third-largest cryptocurrency by market cap has used this influx of bulls to its fullest, confirming its position above $0.2454 and even pushing towards $0.266.

XRP has joined Ethereum in terms of technicals, with the short-term overview changing to a short-term buy, while its long-term technicals are still showing slight bearishness. Traders can look for a pullback that XRP will inevitably make and trade off of it.
