According to the chart, Bitcoin is fighting for each resistance level, however, bears are pushing away BTC to new bottoms. 

Currently, the coin is located under bearish EMA 100, suggesting the further price drop. The absence of high trading volume and neutral MACD indicator are signals for an upcoming decline to the psychological $9,000 mark.

The price of BTC is trading at $9,489 at the time of writing.



On the 4-hour chart, we can see a consolidation phase that occurs after the last sale. Ethereum has formed a bear pennant in the shape of an asymmetric triangle.

The upper limit of around $234 serves as a level, the breakdown of which opens a window for long-term investing. On the other hand, reduction to a two-week minimum in the region of $195 may be the beginning of a double bottom formation. It will also provide an opportunity to open long positions with an acceptable profit/risk ratio.

The price of ETH is trading at $209.25 at the time of writing.


XRP found local support in the region of $0.30. Such a price is more psychological than technical value, meaning that fundamental factors are vital in decision making.
