Crypto majors bounce back after a couple of very tough sessions.
Bitcoin has pushed past the 9K level once again as all of the majors bounced back. The price has so far made a lower high on the daily chart and moved back below the 21 period simple moving average. There is some good news on the technical front, the Relative Strength Index indicator bounced off the 50 mid-line as the price moved higher. This move lower could just be a retracement but where there could be a deeper retracement is if the price breaks below 8106.70.
Ripple's XRP has pushed higher on Friday breaking back above the 0.20 handle. The main test will be at the red resistance zone on the 4-hour chart below at 0.2071. The price bounced off the 0.19 level and this coincided with being oversold on the Relative Strength Index indicator.
On the downside, if the price does bounce back off the aforementioned 0.2071 resistance zone the 0.1800 could be the target for the bears. crucially the price is back below the 55 exponential (EMA) and 200 simple moving averages (SMA). There has also been a bearish moving average cross where the 55 EMA has crossed the 200 SMA to add to the bearish woes.
