Technical Analysis

Bitcoin

Bircoin

Bitcoin is mostly unchanged from its 24H price. The price action has created a triangular structure. This kind of structures are continuation patterns, but also show indecision, or struggle between buyers and sellers. We see also that the price is being held by its 50-period MA. That may hint for a new push to the upside, but buyers are afraid since the last two occasions they pushed the price up sellers took advantage of that to unload their coins and push the price back to support.

The critical levels to observe: $8,200 is the key support, while $8,400 is the resistance to break.

Ripple

Ripple

Ripple moved up almost to touch our $30 target, then profit-takers started to appear, and the price is retracing a bit. The price has been overextended for some time, and a period of consolidation must happen.

XRP may find support near the $0.285 level or, if the correction is more severe, its 50-period MA.

Ethereum

Ethereum

Ethereum has moved up the last 24 hours, breaking the $186 resistance level, but the last six hours the price wend back below it. But in the last 24H movement, we see that momentum to the upside has grown a bit. Also, the price is still held by its 50-period MA, and the price moves above the +1SD Bollinger line. Therefore, unless Bitcoin drags all cryptos down, we see a potential to the upside for Ethereum.
