On Monday, cryptocurrencies experienced a nice bounce from the short-term bottom made during the weekend, but the volume was low, meaning a lack of conviction by the buyers. In the last hours, the volatility almost halted as a consequence of the lack of volume. Thus, cryptocurrencies are drifting since then, even losing some ground. Bitcoin (+2.85%) and Bitcoin SV(+5.12%) are the currencies that held most of the 24-hour gains.  On the Ethereum-based section, REP (+5.22%) and CRO (+9.1%) lead the gains of the most capitalized tokens.

Ethereum

Ethereum 4H

With the latest movements, Ethereum is displaying a horizontal wedge. The price is currently near the top trendline, showing resistance to more price increments. On the technical side, the MACD and the price above its +1SD Bollinger line show bullish bias. ETH needs to close above $135 to convince buyers of a new leg up. Volume is thinning as is usual in sideways triangular formations. So, traders should need to wait for direction.  A close below $123 will signal another leg down. Whereas, above $142 will find buyers to push it higher to $158 and beyond.

Ripple

Ripple 4H

Ripple still moves inside its ascending wedge. Its price is making a series of lower lows, which make a triangular formation with the lower ascending trendline. That means there is indecision among traders on which direction it should move.  The volume is thin, and it grows on the bearish candles, which is not favorable for the price.  As with Ethereum, traders should wait for direction.  The crucial levels to keep an eye on are, $0.17 for downward movements, and $0.18 for bullish breakouts.
