Bitcoin

While it seems that Bitcoin is having quite a slow day, that is not exactly the case. Even though its price has not changed much since our last report, the largest cryptocurrency by market cap is fighting to stay above the triangle formation it has recently passed. If it manages to confirm its position above the triangle (and then 38.2% Fib retracement level), Bitcoin will set itself up to rush towards (and past) $11,000.

BTC/USD 1-day Chart

If we zoom in to the 4-hour chart, we can see that Bitcoin is right on the verge of going back under is level, but has held up nicely so far. Trading is quite simple at the moment, as Bitcoin is not making any sudden moves either towards the upside or downside.

BTC/USD 4-hour Chart

Bitcoin’s short-term technicals are tilted towards the sell-side and will be tilted in that direction until Bitcoin confirms its position above the 38.2% Fib retracement. However, its daily overview is slightly bullish, while its weekly and monthly overviews are extremely bullish.

3: $11,090                                  3: $10,015

Ethereum

Ethereum has been pretty stable in the past 24 hours. Its price has been making higher highs and higher lows ever since Sept 24, until now. The trend has (seemingly) stopped, with Ethereum being stopped out by the $360 resistance level. While this makes Ethereum’s outlook slightly more bearish, in reality, this doesn’t change much as Ethereum Option traders have already made a prediction of ETH trading between $340 and $360 by the end of Oct.

ETH/USD 4-hour Chart

While Ethereum’s 4-hour and 1-day technicals are now tilted towards the sell-side, its longer-term overview is extremely bullish. If we take a look at its weekly or monthly technicals, the sentiment is heavily tilted towards the buy-side.

ETH/USD 4-hour Technicals

Technical Factors (4-hour Chart):
  • The price is at its 50-period and its 21-period EMA
  • The price is at its middle Bollinger band
  • RSI is neutral (50.89)

3: $400                                      3: $289

Ripple

XRP has, after four days of trying, failed to break the $0.2454 resistance level. Its price has fallen off a bit since the last attempt, currently trading at around $0.24. We can also see that XRP has moved below its 50-period moving average, which may cause a further descent towards $0.235.

XRP/USD 4-hour Chart

XRP technicals are quite confusing. While its 4-hour outlook is mixed, its daily outlook is heavily tilted towards the sell-side. On the other hand, its weekly outlook is bullish, while its monthly outlook is, once again, bearish.

XRP/USD 4-hour Technicals

Technical factors (4-hour Chart):
  • The price is below both its 50-period EMA and its 21-period EMA
  • Price is slightly below its middle Bollinger band
  • RSI is neutral (48.16)
  • Volume is stable and average
