Top 3 Price Prediction Bitcoin, Ethereum, Ripple: Crypto market at ease ahead of next bullish run


  • Ether enjoying the best beginning of the year among the Top 3.
  • XRP ignores Ripple Ltd selling, but not for long – possible falls ahead.
  • The moving average structure indicates a weak market until the end of February.

Today's positive commentary comes from Tom Lee of Fundstrat Global Advisors, where he says that the Bitcoin could reach $40000 for this year.

The consolidation process continues in the crypto market. 

The money is moving today towards the Ethereum Classic, positioned as the leader of net capital inflows with $4.89M in the last 24 hours. In the chapter on capital outflows, Bitcoin is the most affected with net outflows of $66.39M in the day.

Above the current price, the first resistance level is at $223, then the second at $228.5 and the third one at $233.

Below the current price, the first support level is at $223, then the second at $213 and the third one at $203.

The MACD on the daily chart shows how the fast average is losing its bullish profile even though the opening between the lines remains. The current structure allows the upside to continue also though it is depleting.

The DMI on the daily chart shows bulls defending the medium-term bullish trend, while bears are improving slightly and remaining at low levels.


XRP/USD Daily Chart

The XRP/USD pair is currently trading at the price level of $0.2713 and is unaffected by the sales of XRP by Ripple Ltd.

Above the current price, the first resistance level is at $0.283, then the second at $0.288 and the third one at $0.30.

Below the current price, the first support level is at $0.253, then the second at $0.24 and the third one at $0.22.

The MACD on the daily chart is about to cross a bearish cross, at which point the fall could accelerate and look for the $0.24 level

The DMI on the daily chart shows the bears getting closer to the bulls' positions, confirming what the MACD announces and a search for lower price levels.
