Technical Analysis - Bitcoin

Bitcoin 4H

 Yesterday noon, Bitcoin has bounced off sharply after it found buyers at the $4.500 level and recovered its $5,000 psychological level.  It seems the price moves in a slightly descending channel, with the current price touching the upper side.

The price has moved to the upper channel of the Bollinger Bands, and its MACD continues pointing upwards.  All this is positive for the digital currency, but it is close to resistance levels. If the price breaks above $5,700, it may continue to $6,650.

Ethereum 4H

Ethereum is touching resistance levels, after its bounce off from the $100 level. The latest price action has also made a descending channel. Now it remains to be seen whether it can break the resistance of the downward channel or continues to follow its trajectory. The MACD is still in a bullish phase, but the price still has to move above its mid-Bollinger line to show us a bullish bias. If the price breaks above $123, we could see an impulse to $140. Otherwise, a test of the $100 level could happen.

Ripple

Ripple 4H

Ripple has followed the overall market bounce. In this case, the rebound came from the $.0.13 level, and it drove the price above $0.15. The price is now in the upper Bollinger channel and near the +1SD line, which is positive for the buyers. The MACD confirms the current positive bias. The price is near resistance levels and possibly at the top of a slightly descending channel. A break above $0.16 could continue moving the asset towards $0.17. But the momentum is fading, and also a reversal of this short-term bounce could happen.
