Top 3 Price Prediction Bitcoin, Ripple, Ethereum: A market in rotation looking for Altcoins’ seasonal effect


  • BTC/USD suffers more than its main rivals.
  • ETH/USD is not configured to take advantage of the King's easing.
  • ETH/BTC forms a double bottom and sets the pace of the market.

 

It is already dawn in Europe on this first day of July and the weekend leaves us with relative tranquility in prices.

The red numbers have indeed been the protagonists of recent days, but this was somewhat expected. The falls have not broken critical levels in any of the three market leaders we analyzed in the Top 3.

The one who comes out best for the moment is XRP, which enjoys the weak moments of the market of the same atony as in rallies. It is holding up there without bragging, yet with a sense of indirection.

The market is configuring for an Alt season, that is already selectively taking place. Most accounts are seeing their dollar balances go down and up in Bitcoins.

For a better look, let's continue with the analysis of my favorite pair, ETH/BTC.

 

ETH/BTC Daily Chart

 

The ETH/BTC pair is currently trading at 0.02689 and continues forming a double bottom that is beginning to look reasonably consistent. This setup is a hopeful one as the continuation of the downturns would have caused a shock in the market.

Above the current price, the first resistance level is at 0.0275 (price congestion resistance), then the second at 0.0291 (price congestion resistance and EMA50) and the third one between 0.030 and 0.0316 (double price congestion resistance, SMA100, and SMA200). Above this level, the pair may accelerate the bullish process.

Below the current price, the first support level is at 0.025 (price congestion support), then the second at 0.0228 (price congestion support) and the third one at 0.020 (price congestion support).

 

 

The MACD on the daily chart shows a structure before a bullish cut. There has not yet been any attempt, so the first one will likely fail in the effort.

The DMI on the daily chart shows how the bears cross down the ADX and initiate a pattern that will lead them to impact the ADX line from below and then continue downwards. This scenario would coincide with the failure described in the MACD cut.


 

BTC/USD Daily Chart


 

BTC/USD is currently trading at $11,050 and stops for the time being the accelerated decline we have seen yesterday. The consolidation process looks like it will last several weeks and possibly reach the $9,000 level.

Above the current price, the first resistance level is at $11,260 (price congestion resistance, then the second at $14,000 (price congestion resistance) and the third one at $17,150 (price congestion resistance).

Below the current price, the first level of support is at $10,650 (price congestion support), then the second at $9,600 (price congestion support) and the third one at $9,150 (price congestion support and EMA50).

 

 

The MACD on the daily chart shows the inverse configuration to the one we have seen on the ETH/BTC pair. In Bitcoin’s case, I see a bearish cross in development that could bounce upwards and then fall again between today and tomorrow. Beware of long positions.

The DMI on the daily chart shows the bulls leading but with less and less advantage over the bears. Neither side of the market seems to want to change the current dynamics.



ETH/USD Daily Chart


 

The ETH/USD pair is currently trading at the $296.77 price level.

Above the current price, the first resistance level is at $308 (price congestion resistance), then the second at $318 (price congestion resistance) and the third one at $332 (price congestion resistance).

Below the current price, the first level of support is at $290 (price congestion support), then the second at $260 (price congestion support and EMA50) and the third one at $250 (price congestion support).

 

 

The MACD on the daily chart shows a bearish cut confirming a slightly divergent price structure. The first support zone will likely be visited.

The DMI on the daily chart shows how the bulls continue to hold on and still move above the ADX line, a sign of strength on the buying side that compensates for the increased force on the selling side.

 

 

XRP/USD Daily Chart


 

The XRP/USD is currently trading at the $0.407 price level and is the only one of the Top Three that has not lost its last few days ranges. Nevertheless, it shows signs of weakness.

Above the current price, the first support is at $0.412 (price congestion resistance), then the second at $0.428 (price congestion resistance) and the third one at $0.44 (double price congestion resistance).

Below the current price, the first level of support is at $0.39 (price congestion support), then the second at $0.366 (double price congestion support and SMA100) and the third one at $0.345 (price congestion support and SMA200).

 

 

The MACD on the daily chart shows an already highly developed bearish cross. It is already moving close to the 0 levels of the indicator, so there is a possibility that it will turn upwards at that level.

The DMI on the daily chart shows bears with a small advantage over bulls. Both are below the ADX line, so the most likely scenario is sideways price action.
