• Bitcoin price shows strength as it maintains the $40,000 support zone.
  • Ethereum price develops an entry that could yield a 27% gain.
  • XRP price is poised to return to the critical $1 value area.

Bitcoin price action has spent the week developing a particularly nasty bear trap off a head-and-shoulders pattern. Ethereum price pulled back from the recent rally, but it has found support and shows signs of buyers returning to continue the push higher. XRP price has developed a near-identical reversal setup to Ethereum as Ripple targets a 20% gain.

Bitcoin price presents buying opportunity before BTC will breakout to $61,000

Bitcoin price action continues to offer an excellent long opportunity before the weekend. The theoretical long entry is a buy stop order at $44,000, a stop loss at $40,000, and a profit target at $61,000. The trade represents a 4.25:1 reward/risk with an implied profit target of over 40% from the entry. A two-box trailing stop would help protect any profit made post entry.

The theoretical long idea is invalidated if Bitcoin price has a daily or weekly close below the $39,500 value area.

Ethereum price targets a return to $4,000, wiping out short sellers in the process

Ethereum price, like Bitcoin and many other altcoins, has developed several bear traps. However, the most recent bear trap has generated a buying opportunity from a Point and Figure pattern known as a Pole Pattern. Pole Patterns are a more flexible pattern in Point and Figure charting, offering initial entries with inverse reversal setups simultaneously. One of those opportunities now exists for Ethereum.

A theoretical long setup for Ethereum price is a buy stop order at $3,400, a stop loss at $3,200, and a profit target at $4,300. This trade represents a 4.5:1 reward/risk setup with an implied profit target of over 27% from the entry. A two to three-box trailing stop would protect any profit made after triggered entry.

The theoretical long entry is invalidated if the current O-column reaches $2,950.

XRP price pulls back and prepares to convert to a bull market

XRP price action has the best-looking bullish breakout compared to Bitcoin or Ethereum. This bullish bias is because the entry off the Pole Pattern breaks the current bear market angle and converts XRP into a bull market.

The possible long entry is a buy stop order at $0.80, a stop loss at $0.76, and a profit target at $0.98. Because this entry is based on a Pole Pattern reversal, XRP can move lower. If XRP does move lower, then the entry and the 4-box stop follow in tandem – but the profit target remains at $0.98.

Like Bitcoin and Ethereum, XRP’s possible long trade setup is a 4.5:1 reward/risk but with a 23% implied gain. As a result, $0.98 may be too conservative, especially given how long XRP has spent wallowing in flat to negative price action compared to Bitcoin and Ethereum.

This long entry idea is invalidated if XRP price drops to $0.70.
