• Bitcoin price hits new five-month lows, highly oversold.
  • Ethereum price action points to a colossal bullish reversal.
  • XRP price could quickly return to $1.00 if recent bearish breakouts fail to sustain further selling pressure.

Bitcoin price action shows evidence that a bottom may be forming, denying bears any further movement lower. Ethereum price has developed a ridiculously extended hidden bullish divergence condition on its weekly chart, warning of an imminent bullish reversal. XRP price hammered with two major short setups, but sellers failed to push XRP lower. 

Bitcoin price displays buying opportunity before BTC hits $60k

Bitcoin price has developed an excellent theoretical long setup on its $1,000/3-box reversal Point and Figure chart. The long entry idea is a buy stop at $44,000, a stop loss at $40,000, and a profit target at $61,000. This trade represents a 4.25:1 reward/risk setup with an implied target of 40.5% from the entry. A trailing stop of two or three boxes would help protect any profit generated post entry.

The profit target is based on the vertical profit target method in Point and Figure analysis, but it may be too conservative. However, if Bitcoin price moves to $61,000, it will more than likely fulfill all the requirements for an Ideal Bullish Ichimoku Breakout on its weekly Ichimoku chart. If that scenario plays out, Bitcoin will be well on its way to new all-time highs.

Because of this Point and Figure setup structure, there is no invalidation point for the theoretical long entry. If Bitcoin continues to slide south, the entry and stop move in tandem – but the profit target remains.

Ethereum price to reverse hard and fast, $4,000 in bulls’ crosshairs

Ethereum price is likely poised for a swift and incredible bullish reversal very, very soon. The reasons for this imminent reversal are based on the support found against the 50% Fibonacci retracement on the weekly Ichimoku chart and the hidden bullish divergence between the candlesticks and the Composite Index - the Composite Index is at lows not seen since September 2019.

Hidden bullish divergence is a warning that the current corrective move is about to end and that a resumption of the uptrend is likely to continue soon. As a result, a trade opportunity is now present on the Point and Figure chart. 

There is a hypothetical long entry for Ethereum price on its $100/3-box reversal Point and Figure chart. The long setup is a buy stop order at $3,400, a stop loss at $3,000, and a profit target at $5,500. The hypothetical buy entry is a 5.25:1 reward/risk setup with a projected profit target of over 65% from the entry. A three-box trailing stop would help protect any profit generated after hitting the entry.

As with Bitcoin, there is no invalidation point for Ethereum price within its hypothetical buy setup. If Ethereum moves lower, the buy stop and stop loss move with the lower price action, but the profit target remains the same.

XRP price assaulted with several bearish Point and Figure setups but sellers not following through

XRP price has a double whammy of bearish activity on its $0.01/3-box reversal Point and Figure chart. The Bearish Catapult pattern and Descending Triple Bottom pattern created a simultaneous bearish short setup at the $0.72 price level. Sellers did push XRP to $0.70, but that was it.

The two bearish short entry patterns represent two of the most potent short strategies in Point and Figure analysis. That bears have been unable or unwilling to capitalize on the bearish structure is very telling and warns of bullish reversal.

XRP price has a possible long entry opportunity with a buy stop order at $0.75, a stop loss at $0.71, and a profit target at $0.96. The trade represents a 5:1 reward/risk with an implied profit target of nearly 29% from the entry. A tight trailing stop of two boxes would help protect any profit made post entry.

Traders should expect some initial resistance at the 38.2% Fibonacci retracement and bottom of the Cloud (Senkou Span A) confluence zone at $0.81. However, this possible long entry is invalidated if XRP price moves to a daily close below the $0.69 price level.
