Daily Crypto Update 21.06.2018 – Permanent Indecision

The market is moving sideways today and there is not a real direction we can say it is going in right now. Most of the cryptos in the market have a lot of barriers to break in order to consolidate prices. Only 27 of the top 100 cryptos appears in green which is showing us that we are more likely to see a move down today.

The price of XRP has lost 1.14% in the last 24 hours and is trading above $0.53 after having rebounded in the EMA-50 in this 4 H chart. The pair is bearish in the last hours since the sellers have pressed hard and the attempts to exceed $0.54 have been unsuccessful. The price could continue to fall and reach $0.5286 (61.8% Fibonacci).

Litecoin hasn’t been able to recover the $100 level and has been repeatedly bouncing in the EMA-50. The price will have to beat several lines in order to go for the $100 again, such as $97, very close to the Central Pivot Point. If the $100 level is achieved the bulls would have a good opportunity to look for higher levels such as $107 and then $110.

The next strong support is S1 Pivot Point in $95.93. Below that, there are no more barriers until the S2 Pivot at $93.96.

BTC has lost 0.85% in the last 24 hours and is moving right now at $6,717, trying to break the Central Pivot Point at $6.710. The buyers are trying with no success to get the $6,800 but this is a very important number because a break above this can send the price towards the $7,000. We can see here in this 1H chart a contracting triangle formed with support at $6,684 and resistance close $6,770.

The price is approaching both break lines of the triangle and I think the price will break below $6,700 to look for the S1 Pivot at $6.606.

Market sentiment

1-Hourly chart technicals signal bullish.

Oscillators are showing mixed signals.

The market continues indecisive but with a more downward trend in the pairs analysed today. There is a weekend coming where we must be very attentive to maybe strong movements, mainly bearish. However, many investors will be hoping for an upward trajectory that has not been seen in months.
