• Bitcoin price is attempting a recovery to $20,750 after three days of selling off.
  • Ethereum price is waiting for Bitcoin’s cue to restart its recovery rally to $1,730
  • Ripple price needs confirmation to kick-start its bounce to $0.340 and $0.381.

Bitcoin price is showing signs of pausing its downtrend with growing hints of a recovery. Investors need to wait for confirmation, however, before getting more seriously bullish. Ethereum and Ripple await the big crypto’s cue to do the same. 

Bitcoin price hopes for a recovery

Bitcoin price has slipped below the ascending parallel channel, triggering a 10% crash to $19,513. As sellers take a break, the buyers are likely to step in and trigger a recovery rally. This development could see BTC retest the $20,750 hurdle.

While a move above this level could indicate a resurgence of buyers, it is unlikely that bulls have the necessary momentum. Therefore, investors should be cautious with the potential recovery rally for Bitcoin price.

Regardless of the buyers’ attempt, market makers are likely to target the liquidity resting below the swing lows formed between July 13 and June 18, extending from $18,889  to $17,578, especially if bulls fail to step in here.

Ethereum price loses steam

Ethereum price has filled the imbalance, resting at $1,478 and is currently attempting a recovery. ETH’s bounce depends on Bitcoin and what it does next.

If Bitcoin price rallies, Ethereum price could see a quick bounce to $1,571, followed by a retest of $1,650. If the momentum is strong, then $1,730 level is where Ethereum price could form a local top.

On the other hand, if Ethereum price fails to stabilize, sellers could send ETH down to collect the liquidity resting below $1,350 and retest the $1,280 support level. 

Ripple price prepares its next move

Ripple price has filled the imbalance to the topside at $0.371 and collected the liquidity resting below equal lows formed at $0.326. While this efficient move is now complete, investors need to wait for a recovery above $0.326, which will confirm an incoming bounce.

The targets of this bullish move are $0.340 and $0.360, but things could escalate, allowing Ripple price to retest $0.381 if the momentum is right.

While things are looking ideal for a Ripple price recovery, a failure from bulls to step up will lead to a steep correction to $0.309 and $0.286 in search for liquidity hunts.
