Bitcoin is still dominated by the sellers who profit from selling the rally. The price moves below the mid-Bollinger line and close to the -1-BB line, while the MACD confirms that the current state is still corrective mode. The upward trendline was respected yesterday, so this can qualify as correction of the last bullish impulse.
Ethereum is fighting the resistance level of $183. Stochastics points to the corrective nature of the current price movements. MACD, still bullish, may lead to a break of the resistances. The price moves close to the +1 Bollinger line, which is a confirmation of the MACD.
Litecoin has overcome the $71 resistance level and now headed up toward $75. MACD and price action near the +1 Bollinger Band confirms that. Currently is fighting to overcome the $72-73 zone.
Cardano is also bullish, although at this time is touching resistance levels at 0.0485. MACD is bullish, but with the price near the overbought zone. We should keep an eye on this one.
Also, keep an eye on EOS.
Eos is currently overbought, but the recent price action is very positive.
