Technical Analysis


The price of the Bitcoin restrained within $10,000 and $10,400 as these levels act as triggers for buyers and sellers.  The good news is that the $10,000 support is more powerful than sellers thought it was.
The MACD, Stoch, and Volume seem to show more upside movements.


 Ripple is moving in a horizontal path. The downward trendline has been crossed and now the price moves between 0.266 and 0.276. The technical indicators point to an upside move.


Ethereum has been moving sideways since Aug. 14, but the last candle with volume shows a kind of morning star figure. That and the MACD and Stoch. shows that there is potential for an upside movement to revisit the 208 level.


 Litecoin’s price moves in a tight range between $70 and %75. It also shows the same morning star figure Ethereum shows, and also the MACD and Stoch. point to an upside push. The primary trend is bearish, though. We would need to wait for signs of a trend change to enter long positions on LTCUSD.
