Technical Analysis - Bitcoin

Bitcoin 4H

Bitcoin dropped below $10K on Saturday, and continue doing so on Sunday and Monday's early morning. In the 4H chart, we can see that the price is approaching the lower side of the ascending channel and that the $9,730 level seems to act as support. Currently, the price is moving below the -1SD Line, in what looks like a descending wedge. Right now, the price is in a support area; thus, we need to observe the resolution of the fight between buyers and sellers to control the movement of the price.  The critical levels to keep are $9,730 to the downside and 9950 to the upside.

Ripple

Ripple 4H

Ripple has been dropping very hard in the last few days, and its price lost 19 percent since its top made last Saturday. Currently, the price went back to the consolidation area, previous to its last run-up.  The $0.274 and $0.266 levels are essential to hold the price. If that does not happen, it would be the end of the bull run of this asset. The price is below its -1SD Bollinger line and the MACD in a bearish phase; thus, it is better to be in the sidelines.

Ethereum

Ethereum 4H

Ethereum had an incredible run up last week, which drove its valuation from $217 to $288, a 32 percent move up. During the last weekend, it is retracing part of its gains, as it was highly overbought. The price needs to create a bottom to resume the trend from there. Currently, it is moving in the $250 level, under the -1SD Bollinger line, and touching its 50-period SMA.  We see also that the upward trendline still holds. Thus, we still think this is a healthy correction and that ETH still has room to move up. Another break of the $263 level would bring strength to the buyers.

Litecoin

Litecoin 4H

Litecoin has dropped hard at the weekend and has erased almost all the gains made in February. The price is moving quite bearish, and now it is entering into what was the consolidation region made at the beginning of February. We have to wait for the price to make a bottom here.  We still maintain the upward bias, as its 200-period SMA is still pointing upward, but the current situation is not. We can see that the bearish candlesticks show a strong volume. Maybe this is a bottoming volume, but, as said, we need to see it create a bottom and the price move to the upper side of the Bollinger bands.
