Technical Analysis


Sellers are controlling the last trading days. They are waiting for the best time and release their volume creating large volume spikes. Currently, BTC is at a support zone and attempting to reach the 10K mark. Its MACD is bearish while stochastics on oversold levels, still, confirms the MACD. Nevertheless, we need to see how the last 4H candle ends. Recovery of the $10K levels would be very bullish.


Ripple still moving inside a support area. The spike seen is a 1-sec artefact. MACD is bearish, but its histogram shows signs of a recovery. Stochastics are still oversold. The primary trend is still bearish.


Ethereum is still obeying the descending trendline, but the price seems to be moving horizontally in an area of support. Volume is still controlled by the sellers, but the latest 24 hours seems to erase the losses of the last bear candlestick. A crossing above $188 would be bullish. The technical indicators are still bearish, although the MACD histogram shows signs of a turning point.


Litecoin has bounced several times of its $71 support level. This level is creating a triangular shape together with the descending trendline. We don’t have still any evidence that the price has changed its bearish bias, but its MACD is not convincing evidence for more drops. The latest red candlestick was on low volume. We need to wait till the price shows if it can move above the descending trendline or sellers push the price below $71.
