Top 3 Price Prediction Bitcoin, Ethereum, XRP: Trap territory beyond the "Wall", but XRP resists the onslaught


  • BTC and ETH suffer a coup and lose the bullish tone.
  • XRP retains bullish momentum.
  • Thursday’s move is worthy of the best Technical Analysis textbooks.

 

The first attempt to break the status quo has suffered its first failure. The movement that we have seen during Thursday’s American session is technically impeccable and fully expected.

It began with a rapid rupture movement of technical levels and was followed by triggering sellers’ positions. In turn, these positions increased at the moment of more significant late entries and far from the stop levels where fear is allowed to roam. The price tumbled down to levels close to the stop-loss points where the fear disappears, and the certainty of action increases.

Technically, the movement is positive, as it verifies the new scenario after BTC/USD surpassed the ceiling of the bearish channel.

The danger of the situation – and there is always a negative side – is that BTC/USD loses the levels it fought so hard to conquer and falls back into the bearish channel. If so, we should put raise the possibility of visiting the base of the technical channel at around $5,500 and the SMA100. Doesn't it seem so far-fetched?

 

ETH/BTC 4 Hours Chart

 

The ETH/BTC pair has also been impacted by the pullback, dropping to the SMA200 level and currently trading at 0.0306. It has been put back into an area densely populated with technical obstacles, which may delay the start for a few days.

Above the current price, the first resistance level is in the 0.0315 zone, where there is a strong confluence including the EMA50, SMA100, price congestion resistance, and upper parallel trend line. The second resistance level, again in the clean territory, is at 0.0332 (Price congestion resistance and upper parallel trendline. The third resistance level for ETH/BTC is at 0.035 (price congestion resistance and upper parallel trendline).

Below the current price, the first support level is at 0.030 (price congestion support and SMA200), then the second support level is at 0.0292 (price congestion support and bottom parallel trendline). The third support level for ETH/BTC awaits at 0.0275 (price congestion support).

 

 

The MACD on the 4-hour chart crosses down but remains in the bullish region of the indicator. The current profile suggests a sideways movement for the next few hours as a possible scenario.

The DMI on the 4-hour chart shows how the bears regained control of the asset thanks to Thursday’s declines.  Bulls get below the ADX line, which suggests weakness for the next few hours.

 

BTC/USD Daily Chart



 

BTC/USD is currently trading at $8,321 after hitting a low of $8,000 on Thursday and is sure to have triggered a lot of automatic stops.

Above the current price, the first resistance level is at $8,323 (price congestion resistance), then the second resistance level is at $8,800 (price congestion resistance). The third resistance level for BTC/USD is at $9,160 (price congestion resistance and relative maximum).

Below the current price, the first support level is at $9,200 (price congestion support and long term down channel trendline ceiling), then the second support level is at $8,000 (price congestion support). The third level of support for BTC/USD is at $7,860 (price congestion support).

 

 

The MACD on the daily chart shows a bearish cross with a high probability of deepening into the bearish momentum. The structure jeopardizes the current support and increases the chances that the BTC/USD pair will re-enter the long term bearish channel. Be very careful with this, short term holders.

The DMI on the daily chart shows a drastic reduction in the advantage of bulls over bears. The clash between both sides of the market – which does not occur since late April – will happen in the coming days and mark the development in the medium term.



ETH/USD Daily Chart


 

ETH/USD is currently trading at $254.6, after Thursday’s high of $290. The magnitude of the drop is substantial, but we must keep in mind that between $260 and $290, Ethereum has no support.

Above the current price, the first resistance level is at $260 (price congestion resistance), then the second resistance level is at $290 (price congestion resistance and relative maximum). The third resistance level for the ETH/USD pair is at $306.

Below the current price, the first support level is at $250 (price congestion support), then the second support level is at $238 (price congestion support). The third level of support for ETH/USD is at $224 (price congestion support).

 

 

The MACD on the daily chart shows a precise bearish cross, so the potential downward increases. The most likely scenario is a lateral bearish one.

The DMI on the daily chart shows how the difference between bulls and bears has narrowed a lot. It should be noted that both sides of the market have been moving lower in the last few hours.




XRP/USD Daily Chart



 

XRP/USD is currently trading at $0.4203, after peaking at $0.474 yesterday.

Above the current price, the first resistance level is $0.428 (price congestion resistance), then the second resistance level is $0.438 (price congestion resistance). The third resistance level for XRP/USD is $0.44 (price congestion resistance).

Below the current price, the first support level is $0.412 (price congestion support), then the second support level is $0.39 (price congestion support). The third level of support for XRP/USD is $0.368 (Price congestion support over multiple time frames).

 

 

The MACD on the daily chart does not show a bearish cross as seen in Bitcoin and Ethereum. This data is enough to sense who can be the winner in the next few days.

The DMI in the daily chart shows how the bulls have lost intensity but still have a substantial advantage over the bears. To emphasize – the seller side of the market remains at shallow levels despite the apparent broad change of tone in the short term.
