Top 3 Price Prediction Bitcoin, Ripple, Ethereum: BTC/USD targets $8,800 – Altcoin season is coming

  • ETH/USD aims at $220 but may come as a positive surprise.
  • XRP/USD falls sharply and targets $0.28.
  • ETH/USD presents candidacy to lead the Altcoins towards more attractive prices.


As we are drawing closer to the end of the week, cryptocurrencies have finally decided to correct and get out of the recent stagnation. 

The extent of the falls is usual in this market – and it is surprising that anybody is surprised. A wide trading range is the nature of this market – both to the upside and to the downside.

The red that stains the portfolios should not distract the exciting situation that presents itself in the duality Bitcoin vs. Altcoins. The impact of the falls in the latter is being accelerated and are in more advanced stages of the consolidation phase. 

When defining probable scenarios, the data above helps to develop a scenario in which Altcoins complete the process before the Bitcoin does, and even begin to climb while Bitcoin continues in the consolidation phase.

The ETH/BTC graph provides relevant information.


ETH/BTC Daily Chart


The ETH/BTC pair is currently trading at the price level of 0.02359 after hitting support at 0.023 on Wednesday (price congestion support), levels unseen since early December 2017. 

The chart is very conducive to a bullish turn – or at least to the formation of a floor. 

Below support at 0.023, the second one is at 0.020 (price congestion support) and the third one awaits at 0.0155 (double price congestion support).

Above the current price, the first resistance level for ETH/BTC is at 0.027 (price congestion resistance), then the second at 0.0278 (price congestion resistance and EMA50) and the third one at 0.0293 (price congestion resistance).



The MACD on the daily chart shows potential for a considerably bullish configuration. It diverges from May’s lows and has made two failed cross attempts. The downside margin is minimal.

The DMI on the daily chart shows bulls losing ground in the past two days after remaining active in the previous 12 days of declines. The final leg has frightened a few, but the market bottom thinks the end of the bearish leg is near.


BTC/USD Daily Chart


BTC/USD is reliable and despite the declines is in the upper range of the current bullish scenario. Wednesday’s attempt to attack new highs exhausted King Bitcoin that began falling by sharply by midday – a possibility already contemplated in the previous article.

Today it has hit $11,500 in price congestion support, and for now, it bounces back up in an increasingly bearish environment.

The next level of support for BTC/USD is at $10,650 (price congestion support) and the third one at $9,650 (price congestion support and EMA50).

The ultimate goal of this consolidation process would be around $8,800.



The MACD on the daily chart shows a technically sinister figure. It tried to cross up yesterday and failed miserably. This bearish signal is going to be taken advantage of by sellers.

The DMI on the daily chart shows the bulls in the last few rales and with very little chance of maintaining leadership beyond the weekend.


ETH/USD Daily Chart


ETH/USD is trading at $273.13 after regaining support at the EMA50, lost during the Asian session. This morning it has reached the $260 support level to move higher at this time.

The second support level for ETH/USD is at $250 (price congestion support) and the third one at $238 (price congestion support and SMA100).

Above the current price, the first resistance level is at $290 (price congestion resistance), then the second at $305 (price congestion resistance) and the third one at $315 (price congestion resistance).

The ultimate goal of this consolidation process would be around $220.



The MACD on the daily chart shows how the lines are separating again and moving towards the neutral level of the indicator. I expect that when reaching the zero level, the indicator will turn upwards.

The DMI on the daily chart shows bulls taking the initiative and beating bears for the first time in a month. The bullish side of the market remains above the ADX line, which gives an optimistic point to the scenario.

XRP/USD Daily Chart


The XRP/USD is trading at $0.3346 after dropping to a session low of $0.317 (double support for price congestion). It is slightly above the price congestion support level of $0.328. Of the three crypto market capitalization leaders, the XRP is suffering the most. 

The second level of support for the XRP/USD pair is $0.308 (price congestion support), and the third one is $0.30 (price congestion support).

Above the current price, the first resistance level is at $0.335 (price congestion resistance), then the second at $0.344 (price congestion resistance and SMA200) and the third one at $0.367 (double price congestion resistance and SMA100).

The XRP/USD pair has the $0.28 level as the target for the healing process.



The MACD on the daily chart shows that the trend accelerates again as the lines separate. The MACD on the daily chart shows the trend accelerating as the lines separate again.

The DMI on the daily chart shows a typical leadership change structure. Bears shoot upwards while bulls cut down the ADX line and lose their ability to react.
