The Bitcoin price for today reports loses around -4.06% as the session has progressed on Monday, after initially starting the day with some gains. Following on from some decent buying seen over the weekend, as has proven to be the case on several occasions.
Upward price movements were seen across the crypto market after over-excitement produced by reports of big players interest in cryptos. The intentions of George Soros and Rothschild were mentioned, among others.
Technically, BTC/USD looks pretty vulnerable to another drop, as the price has formed a bearish pennant pattern, seen within the 4-hour time frame view. Support is currently set around $6,600. If this support is broken, we could see a downward move to the mid $5,000 region. The closer resistance is its 200 EMA, located at around $ 6.935, but the price has to cross first its 100 EMA around $6.848.
Ethereum’s price shows a slight increase of about 0.79% in the last 24 hours, after an exciting rise up to $ 430.24 in the today’s early hours. Over the weekend, ETH broke its 200 Period EMA in the 1 H chart, and it was quite bullish, but this morning it quickly resigned its profits to return around the 200-period EMA. At this moment it is quoted at around $400. Now its 200-EMA seems to become a strong support for the coming days on the ETHUSD pair.
The bullish trend line that was forming was not strong enough neither it held the price, so we will watch if it becomes resistance in the next few days.
The next visible resistance is $ 411, and above $ 430, if the price returns below $ 400, the $ 391 would be its closest support, then the 100-period EMA close at $ 386 and, below, $ 376 (last April’s bottom price)
Ripple lost -1.42% in the last 24 H, and it is now moving around $0.48. After starting the day up 5%, the gains were quickly taken back by the market bears, reconfirming that the current trend is still firmly pointing to the downside.
XRP as BTC was receiving some renewed optimism initially after several reports raised a lot of excitement. They were suggesting that there were big players interested in cryptocurrency investing, such as George Soros, Rothschild, and others.
But the news wasn’t good enough for the XRP price, and it ran into some heavy selling that sent price close to the $0.50 level. Now its wise to look back towards $0.45 area for support and if crossed, the likelihood of its price to visit the $0.40 level is high.
