Technical analysis

Bitcoin

Bitcoin has spent the weekend preparing for a move towards the upside, which happened in recent hours. While the move did break the large triangle to the upside, it stopped at the 38.2% level, which it is now fighting for. Only a daily close above this level would mean that the bulls have taken over the market, while anything else is far less bullish.

BTC/USD 1-day Chart

If we zoom in to the 4-hour chart, we can see that the largest cryptocurrency by market cap got stopped out (for now) at the 38.2% Fib retracement level. The next couple of hours will be crucial in determining Bitcoin’s short-term future and its sentiment.

BTC/USD 4-hour Chart

Bitcoin’s short-term technicals tilted even more towards the bull side over the weekend. On the other hand, its long-term technicals are still bullish on all time-frames.

Technical factors (4-hour Chart):

Ethereum

Unlike Bitcoin, Ethereum didn’t have a strong move towards the upside, but rather kept its trading within a range, bound by $360 to the upside and $340 to the downside. As we said in our previous post, options traders bet on Ethereum having over 55% chance of staying below $360 and above $340 in the next month, with only around 20% of them betting on ETH breaking the $360 mark in October.

ETH/USD 4-hour Chart

While Ethereum’s 4-hour technicals are tilted towards the buy-side, its 1-day technicals are bearish. When talking about weekly or monthly technicals, the sentiment is tilted towards the buy-side heavily.

Ripple

XRP’s price movement has surprised traders as they expected it to push more towards the downside and continue its Elliot impulse wave 5th leg movement. However, it seems that XRP wanted to move towards the upside and pushed towards its $0.2454 resistance (unsuccessfully).

Traders are calling for two scenarios, with one being that XRP hasn’t finished its Elliot impulse wave pattern yet and that it will revisit the $0.21 lows before doing anything else. However, many traders are now saying that the impulse wave has ended with XRP reaching $0.219 instead of $0.21 and that it is now moving freely and trying to push above its resistance levels. While both sides have their reasoning, the large ascending support level (red line) is tipping the scales in favor of XRP, already ending its Elliot wave structure.

XRP/USD 1-day Chart

If we zoom in to the 4-hour chart, it’s even more apparent that the Elliot impulse wave has finished, and that XRP is now moving towards its support/resistance levels without such a strong pattern behind it.

XRP/USD 4-hour Chart

XRP’s 4-hour sentiment has turned bullish after (most likely) finishing its Elliot impulse wave pattern. Not only that, but its slightly longer time-frames are also tilted towards the buy-side, which is a healthy change when compared to last week. However, its monthly overview is still looking bearish (though not as much as before the weekend).

XRP/USD 4-hour Technicals

Technical factors (4-hour Chart):
  • The price is above both its 50-period EMA and its 21-period EMA
  • Price is slightly below its top Bollinger band
  • RSI is neutral (59.22)
  • Volume is stable and average
