Technical analysis

_______________________________________________________________________

Bitcoin

Bitcoin has spent the past 24 hours pushing towards the upside, which resulted in a price increase of around 6% during its peak. The largest cryptocurrency by market cap has reached $10,800 before the bulls have exhausted their resources. This move towards the upside has put BTC within the large triangle, meaning that we can expect another strong move (to either side of the triangle) in the short future.

BTC/USD 1-day Chart

If we take a look at the 4-hour time-frame, the largest cryptocurrency by market cap has pushed past 23.6% Fib retracement and established itself well above it. Once the move ended, BTC found immediate support at the 50-period moving average.

BTC/USD 4-hour Chart

Bitcoin’s short-term technicals have changed its overview from very bearish to slightly bullish. On the other hand, its long-term technicals remained extremely bullish on all time-frames longer than 4-hours.

BTC/USD 4-hour Technicals

Technical factors (4-hour Chart):
  • Price is above both its 50-period EMA and 21-period EMA
  • Price near its top Bollinger band
  • RSI is neutral and tilted towards the upside (56.98)
  • Volume is volatile

Ethereum

Ethereum has pushed towards the upside, following Bitcoin’s move and gaining a bit less than 10% in the past 24 hours (during its peak). The second-largest cryptocurrency by market cap pushed past the $340 resistance line and established itself above it, therefore turning it into support. However, further moves towards and past $360 may be difficult at the moment, as we saw option traders for October expiration contracts “betting” that Ether is most likely going to trade between $340 and $360.

ETH/USD 4-hour Chart

Ethereum’s short-term technicals have not changed much since yesterday, tilting just slightly less to the sell-side than before. Its overview of longer time frames is extremely bullish, especially on the 1-day and 1-month technical overview.

ETH/USD 4-hour Technicals

Technical Factors (4-hour Chart):
  • The price is below its 50-period and right at its 21-period EMA
  • The price is between its top and middle Bollinger band
  • RSI is neutral (47.68)
  • Volume increased (but descending towards average)

3: $400                                      3: $289

Ripple

While XRP didn’t differ from the rest of the top cryptocurrencies and pushed towards the upside as well, the gains it made may not remain gains for long. XRP managed to gain around 5% in the past 24 hours (during its peak) but found great resistance at the 5th leg of the Elliot impulse wave. XRP quickly bounced off of it, indicating that we may see consolidation and a continuation towards the downside, where XRP will fulfill its move at the $0.219 target.

XRP/USD 4-hour Chart

XRP’s bearish sentiment extends across all time frames, with its 4-hour overview showing a bit lighter tilt towards the sell-side, and its longer time-frame overviews showing a strong tilt towards the sell-side.

XRP/USD 4-hour Technicals

Technical factors (4-hour Chart):
  • The price is below its 50-period EMA and just above its 21-period EMA
  • Price is slightly above its middle Bollinger band
  • RSI is natural (49.02)
  • Volume is slightly above average
