The last week has been prolific for the crypto market with Bitcoin testing the key $4000 mark, Ethereum approaching $150 and the total market cap increasing to over $134 billion. This is a solid climb considering February 17 it was valued at only $121 billion, the market is coming back to crypto. As usual, Bitcoin is dragging the altcoins up with it and in this case, we are seeing green across the board.
Litecoin (LTC) Price Analysis
Litecoin is currently the number 5 cryptocurrency by market cap with a circulating supply valued at $3,017,837,498 and a trading price of $49.82. Over the last 7 days, it has added 16.94%and is one of the top performers. The LTC/USD pair has been enjoying a steady climb since bottoming out at $22, is now supported by a strong bullish trend line and trading above the 100 days Exponential Moving Average (red). The recent break above the level at $47 makes $56 the next target which could be reached inside a week’s time. It must be noted that the Relative Strength Index has entered overbought for the second time and that may generate a pullback into the 100 EMA.
EOS (EOS) Price Analysis
With a market cap of $3,497,498,697, EOS is sitting just above Litecoin in the market cap rankings at number 4. It is trading at 3.86 against the US Dollar and has increased a whopping 37.56% in the last 7 days. The recent climb broke the resistance at $3.10 taking EOS above the 100 days EMA and painting a bullish picture. The most likely scenario is a touch of the level at $4.60 which was support in the past and has not turned into resistance yet. The RSI is deep in overbought territory which is an early sign that a retracement will soon follow but, however, as long as the price is above $3.10 the bias is bullish.
Stellar (XLM) Price Analysis
Stellar added 12.95% in the last 7 days and is currently occupying the number 8 spot in CoinMarketCap rankings with a circulating supply valued at $1,711,752,210. It has a trading price of 0.089 against the US Dollar and, from a long-term perspective, the pair is in a clear and strong downtrend. The but is that after reaching the bottom at 0.073 the has started to show signs of bullish pressure. For now, the bulls and bears are battling for the control of 0.092 resistance, which if broken, will likely generate additional upside movement. A failed break here would send the pair back into 0.073 support.
Monero (XMR) Price Analysis
Currently sitting in the number 13 spot with a market cap of $875,852,285, Monero is trading at $52.10 and added more than 9% over the last 7 days. Monero has had a weaker climb than its peers and is still trading below the 100 days EMA and below the resistance at $59. XMR/USD is in a range created by $39 support and $59 resistance so before we can see stronger moves to either side one of the boundaries must be broken. It’s very likely to see a move into $59 - $60, where the next short-to-medium term direction will be decided.
