Technical Analysis: Bitcoin

Bitcoin

 

Bitcoin has had a big day, and its price has made a new high, moving above the previous one at $9,550. Currently, the price is making a consolidation movement, after touching twice the +3SD Bollinger line, which is indicative of the overbought condition.

 

From the chart, we can see that the price action takes place in an upward channel. The current move shows that BTC still has room for more upsides before hitting the resistance line of the upper channel. The MACD is also in its initial stage of the bullish phase. Therefore, we estimate that Bitcoin will continue up and soon to challenge the 10K psychological level.

Ripple made a sideways action that brought its price to the +1SD line, as we estimated yesterday. Now it is starting to move upwards and is currently trying to overcome the $0.283 level.

Ethereum had a very strong movement yesterday that brought the price from $190 up to $212, piercing the upper trendline of its ascending channel. That shows a solid increase in its bullish momentum. We see also that the price action took place close to the +3SD Bollinger line (amber), and that has also created an overextension of the price. Thus, although it is evident the bullish trend of the Ether, we consider it will experience a consolidation phase for some hours, that move the action closer to the +1SD line.
