Bitcoin has cut its descending leg and crossed the $10,150 resistance level yesterday noon. The price kept moving and found selling pressure at $10.450. The price is now above the +1 Bollinger band, which is bullish, and the MACD has made a bullish crossover. Volume has been decreasing, which shows not all buyers are entering this movement, afraid for yet another bull trap.
Ripple bounced off of the supply zone but lacked buyers to keep moving the price upwards. Not it is stalling near the mid-Bollinger line. The MACD is making a bullish transition. That may show the sentiment is shifting.
Cosmos is the star of the day. Yesterday went up 16%, but it is up close to 50% since September 6. That was achieved with an increased volume. Right now the price needs a bit of consolidation, but given the potential upside of this coin, it should be in the eyes of crypto enthusiasts.
Litecoin is showing weakness. The price is close to breaking the $68.8 support level and moving below the -1 Bollinger line. The MACD still in bearish mode, it didn’t take benefit of the advances of the Bitcoin. The sizeable bearish candlestick made yesterday is still dominating the price action. A close above $70 would change the outlook of this altcoin.
Ethereum’s price was rejected from the $182 level and now is below $180, that made a lower high pattern. The price is finding support in the mid-Bollinger line, but if it continues dropping, it may continue to pay a visit to the lower side of the descending channel in which price seems to be moving. Of course, that may change if the Bitcoin takes new buyers on board.
