- The market is not in full-bullish mode yet, but it is clearly going for it.
- Paradoxically, the best-prepared crypto, Ethereum, is the one that is leaving the most doubts.
- XRP joins the market momentum and leaves aside the sluggishness.
The trading day in Europe starts in the best possible way for crypto market followers.
Bitcoin manages to break through the resistance upwards at $8400 and slides quickly past $8500. Altcoins joined this morning's celebration led by the Ethereum who stands in front of the resistance at $150 after rising +4.4%, Litecoin up +7.3%, XRP +3.2% or DASH up +20%.
The flow of capital into Bitcoin soars to $176 million, well above the daily average.
Ethereum receives $23.3m, well above the $3.2m flowing into the XRP.
The discussion now revolves around whether or not to declare the market in full-bullish mode. As I proposed yesterday, the market is leaning towards that status, where bulls will have full advantage.
As I will explain in the detailed analysis, the situation of each Top3 crypto is different, while the ETH/BTC pair plays on the wire without a safety net.
ETH/BTC Weekly Chart.
The ETH/BTC pair is currently trading at the price level of 0.01762. The price is holding above the long-term downward trend line that overtook yesterday.
After the breakout, I expected more joy, but it is clear that the market is resisting this upward signal.
The current situation is complicated and risky. A downward movement would be critical at this point, as it would bring the price back below the trend line and the negative impact on market sentiment would be significant.
Moving averages are tilted downwards and are heading towards the 0.018 level in the short term.
Above the current price, the first resistance level is at 0.018, then the second at 0.0185 and the third one at 0.020.
Below the current price, the first support level is at 0.017, then the second at 0.0155 and the third one at 0.013.

BTC/USD Weekly Chart
BTC/USD is currently trading at $8483. The target for entering full-bullish mode is $9140, a level where price congestion resistance converges with the SMA200 and the long-term downward trend line. The resistance level is critical and it will be difficult for the Bitcoin to break it easily.

ETH/USD Weekly Chart

XRP/USD Weekly Chart
XRP/USD is currently trading at the price level of $0.2202, above the EMA50 but still far from the target level for declaring full bullish mode. XRP must move above the $0.25 level to achieve this condition.

Below the current price, the first support level is at $0.22, then the second at $0.19 and the third one at $0.18.
