• According to the Bitcoin Volatility Index, the bitcoin price remains submerged in terms of trading interest.
  • Ethereum continues to show strength in the market but for how long?
  • Ripple price shows contrarian bullish signals.

The Crypto market shows a shift in the tides. Market dominance may be dished off to Ethereum and Ripple in the coming weeks.

Bitcoin price shows turbulence

Bitcoin price has halted all bullish production. The peer-to-peer digital currency has been experiencing erratic behavior since it hurdled the $21,000 barrier towards the end of July. Traders may continue to sideline their accounts in the coming days as the technicals suggest a wedging pattern is likely underway

Turbulent behavior in Bitcoin price could signal disinterest amongst short-term bulls and bears alike. An On-Chain analysis indicator called the Bitcoin Volatility Index (BVIN) confounds the unpredictability that continues to plague. The BVIN shows declining volatility in net and cumulative volume, displayed by a steadily decreasing 50-day exponential moving average (EMA). Thus a sideline approach may be justified for weeks until a substantial cue presents itself.

Ethereum price set to outperform

Ethereum price continues to show strength in the market. Despite the negative sentiment hovering in the ecosystem around which merge solution the community should take. The maintenance above $1,500 should continue to be bullish in the short term. 

The earliest detection of a weakening trend will be a failure to hold support near the $1,350 level, which leaves 15% of wiggle room from the current Ethereum price at $1,594. Updates will be issued throughout the week as the digital asset shows the potential to outperform its Bitcoin counterpart.

Xrp price shows stregnth

Ripple’s XRP price auctions at $0.358 as the bulls continue to show optimism. XRP price is currently holding ground above a critical trend line which can be viewed as a quiet storm in the making. The bulls appear to be aiming for macro targets at $0.48 and $0.50. A breach of these levels could induce a bull rally targeting $1.20 in the future, resulting in a 180% increase from the current Ripple price. 

Invalidation of the uptrend depends on the bulls holding ground at the $0.325 level. Should the bears breach this critical line in the sand, a plummet towards new all-time lows for 2022 could occur. Bearish targets lie between $0.20-$0.24 for up to a 45% decrease from the current Ripple price.
