Technical Analysis

Bitcoin

Bitcoin

Bitcoin has broken the descending trendline after a first attempt made last Saturday and several bounces from the $7,900 level. The movement stopped just at the $8,300 level. Bitcoin seems to be moving inside a large and slightly ascending channel.

The 4H chart shows that, currently, BTC is moving in a resistance area between the levels of $8,300 and $8,400. We can see also that the price moves far away from the +1SD Bollinger line, which is a clear indication of overbought levels. For the coming hours, it is expected the price to continue its consolidation.

Critical levels to observe

Supports Pivot Resistances
S1 $7,890 $8,158 R1: $8,500
S2 $7,544   R2: $8,760
S3 $7,280   R3: $9,100

Ethereum buyers also followed the bounce of the bitcoin, bit with less enthusiasm. Te price stopped climbing near the descending trendline and is failing to make a higher high. MACD is in positive territory, and the price moves on the upper side of the Bollinger bands, but the bands still are descending. Therefore, we need to observe the price in the coming hours. The level to break for a confirmation of the upward movement is $177.

Ripple is moving inside a triangular pattern. The price moved up yesterday following the impulse of the rest of the sector, but the last six hours have retraced the major part of that move. Nonetheless, the price is still moving following, and above, its 50-period MA. The price moves below the -1SD Bollinger line and the MACD is bearish. That tells XRP moves currently in a corrective wave. The main level to break for a continuation to the upside is $0.2955, while to the downside is 0.285.

Supports Pivot Resistances
S1 $0.273 $0.295 R1: $0.3
