Technical analysis

Bitcoin

Bitcoin has spent the weekend trying to get past the psychological resistance of $11,000, but failed to do so. The daily chart shows a possible resistance level at the 61.8% Fib retracement from the Head and Shoulders pattern. If that happens, we may expect lows of $9,300 to $9,500.

BTC/USD 4-hour Chart

If we take a look at the 4-hour time frame, Bitcoin fell under the pink ascending line, which is now acting as resistance. However, this resistance is not as strong and may be surpassed with ease. Bitcoin is still struggling and trading within the range bound by $11,000 and $10,850 to the upside and downside, respectively.

BTC/USD 4-hour Chart

Bitcoin’s short-term technicals are showing bullish sentiment, while its mid-term technicals are slightly more bearish. While Bitcoin shows the most bullish sentiment out of the top three cryptocurrencies, we can expect a rebound from the current highs as BTC is unable to gain any meaningful bull push.

BTC/USD 4-hour Technicals

Technical factors (4-hour Chart):
  • Price is above its 50-period EMA and just slightly above its 21-period EMA
  • Price is at its middle Bollinger band
  • RSI is flat but overextended to the upside (53.96)
  • Volume is slowly descending

Ethereum

Ethereum’s price has been squeezed out of its current levels over the weekend, pushing it below the yellow bottom support (now resistance) line. However, the bears didn’t do much either, with ETH’s price descent ending after failing to break $371 to the downside. If this level breaks, we can expect a push towards the $360 support level.

ETH/USD 4-hour Chart

Ethereum’s technicals have turned towards the bear side as the price went down. While the DeFi surge should be taken into account, Ethereum looks like it will push towards the downside in the short-term.

ETH/USD 4-hour Technicals

Technical Factors (4-hour Chart):
  • The price is below both its 21-period and its 50-period EMA
  • The price below its middle Bollinger band
  • RSI neutral and stabilizing (45.44)
  • Volume is average (two-candle spike during the downswing)

3: $445                                      3: $340

Ripple

When taking a look at the 1-day chart, XRP has continued its Elliot Wave impulse pattern, nearly ending the fourth part of the wave. It is expected for XRP to push towards the downside (most likely towards $0.21) as a final leg of the impulse wave.

XRP/USD 1-day Chart

XRP spent its weekend in a slow push towards the upside as a continuation of its 4th leg of the impulse wave. With that being seemingly done, we can expect more bears to enter the market quite soon. This prediction is also confirmed by XRP finding much resistance at its 21-period and 50-period moving averages.

Taking a look at its technicals, XRP is (just as Ethereum) tilted towards the sell-side. Unlike Ethereum, however, XRP is showing even more bearish sentiment on longer time frames.
