Technical Analysis - Bitcoin
Chart 1 Bitcoin 4H Chart
Bitcoin is moving of its lows, after a harami (inside bar), which also made a kind of double bottom on the $8,000 level. We can see on the chart that this double bottom was made with two candlesticks with relatively large lower wicks near the -3SD Bollinger line (amber). This pattern is relatively frequent, and the posterior evolution of the action usually carries the price to the surroundings of the Bollinger Mean line. But that pattern is a continuation pattern. Therefore, until new developments, we must assume the downward path to continue. $8,200 is the resistance to break, while $8,000 the support to keep.
Chart 2 - Ripple 4 Chart
Ripple made a reversal candle yesterday noon, which gave the impulse for the asset to cross the %0.25 level to the upside with increasing volume. After being rejected by the $0.26 level ( and the mid-Bollinger line), the price is making a weak figure. The overall trend continues to be bearish as all averages have a negative slope, and the price keeps moving in the lower side of the Bollinger bands. The main levels to keep watching are $0.25 and $0.245.
Chart 3 - Ethereum 4H Chart
The recent price action of Ethereum has created a descending channel. On Tuesday, the price made a kind of multiple bottoms with a final reversal pattern, an engulfing candle that drove the price above $175. The bottoming happened near the -3SD Bollinger line ( which marks oversold levels) and creates the pattern described in our Bitcoin analysis. The price moves towards the mid-Bollinger line, which is also close to the center of the channel. The issue here is if the price will continue upwards towards the top of this channel or the bearishness is resuming. The current market situation seems to indicate this is just a momentary bounce.
The levels to watch are mainly $175 and $172 to the downside and $180 to the upside.
Chart 4 - Litecoin 4H Chart
Litecoin has bounced as the other cryptos analyzed today, but its bounce was minimal. The price is close to the -1SD Bollinger line and just fighting the $55.8 level, which acts as resistance. All indicate more downside. A bearish candle at this level could be enough to confirm a continuation of the trend.
