Positive Monday For Bitcoin Price, LTC, NEO, Monero Still Negative

Bitcoin is starting the week positively as bulls got a momentum. The Bitcoin price still has some room for further growth until the closest resistance level. Litecoin and NEO follow almost the same scenario. As for Monero, the cryptocurrency seems to remain under pressure.

BTC/USD

BTC/USD still goes upwards on the Daily chart as it fluctuates along the upside trend line and is testing it today. Depending on the results of this testing, BTC/USD is likely to either fall below the trend line, looking for a major support line, which lies around 7,000 area or to resume its growth towards the resistance line, which is close to 11,500 level.

Generally, BTC/USD price fluctuates within a large horizontal channel established by the above-mentioned support and resistance levels. There are no candlestick signals currently.

As for the Ichimoku indicator, Bitcoin price went above the upper side of the cloud demonstrating bulls commitment to change the tendency and reach the closest resistance line in the medium term. However, BTC price returned to the upper Ichimoku cloud line in order to test it (which is natural for this kind of indicator). If the line resists and gives support to Bitcoin price, bulls will probably have a good chance to reach their mid-term goals. Otherwise, bears have a chance to gain momentum again.

As for the hourly chart, BTC/USD still has the same direction, going along the upside trend line. There were two chances yesterday to open short-term long positions from the trend line. Bitcoin price has a correction now as we can see the Shooting Star candlestick pattern. We expect the correction last until the upside trend line, where BTC price is able to reverse again towards the resistance line, which is close to the 9,500 area.

As for the Ichimoku indicator, BTC/USD is below its cloud but is likely to meet it today. If Bitcoin price enters the cloud, there will be opportunities to trade from its borders (channel trading).

LTC/USD

Litecoin goes the same direction as Bitcoin does, but Litecoin price is close to the resistance line. Bulls were trying to assault the resistance at 180.00 last week, but they had no luck and enough power to break through this line. Litecoin price jumped off 180.00 and went towards the upside trend line, where it stays now, waiting for bulls and bears to take active steps. If LTC price breaks through 180.00, the next midterm target will be close to 240.00 area.

As for the Ichimoku indicator, Litecoin price resides within the cloud and rejected its upper side. Now it has two ways- to go downwards and to test the lower side or try the upper side again (the trend line may support bulls and help them to stop the correction, which is clearly seen on the chart at the moment).

The situation is favorable for short-term bulls as LTC price goes along the upside trend line and rejected it twice already. However, there is a high probability for a downside correction now, which is able to aim the upside trend line. The closest target for LTC/USD on the hourly chart is 171 area, where the resistance line lies.

When we look at the Ichimoku indicator, we can see that the bulls still try to break the situation and to gain momentum. However, LTC/USD fluctuates below the cloud, which means that bears still have some power. We expect the currency pair to reach the Ichimoku cloud today and to test its lower line.

XMR/USD

Monero is still under the pressure as it fluctuates below the downside trend line. Midterm bears drive the currency pair even further downwards and their next target seems to be close to 175.00 area support line.

Monero shows no sign of a tendency reverse. Monero price has recently jumped off the downside trend line and is slightly going down.

Bulls are able to make a counter attack either now, when Monero price is still close to 250.00 area resistance line or close to the 175.00 support line area.

As for the Ichimoku indicator, Monero fluctuates within the cloud. Monero price rejected the upper side and is going downwards to test the lower line which is also not far from 175.00 level.

Monero price is close to the resistance on the hourly chart. Bears still have power as they do not allow bulls to make any further steps above 235.00. However, if we take a look at the whole picture, we can see a kind of reversed head and shoulders formation and if it is real, we are in the neckline area now. The next resistance area will be close to 242.00 level.

Monero enters the Ichimoku cloud but does it quietly, with no momentum. Short term traders should pay attention to what is going to happen in the nearest future. If Monero goes through the Ichimoku cloud, it may gain momentum and reach 242 area even today. As for the alternative scenario, Monero price is able to reverse towards the lower line of the Ichimoku cloud.

NEO/USD

The currency pair went above the support line but is still testing it. NEO/USD is currently trying to go upwards as it has started an upside tendency on April 2018. If the test of the support line results in nothing, we expect the currency pair to go further towards the resistance line, which is close to 114 level.

NEO price stays within the Ichimoku cloud and is quiet. The volatility is low. There are no clear signals currently.

Short term NEO/USD traders may rely on profits from long positions, as NEO price continues to go upwards and has already broken through the resistance level at 80.00 area. The next target lies higher close to the 84.00 area (current resistance level). Bears still able to test the support line but bulls look stronger at the moment as they have gained momentum already.

NEO/USD is able to meet the lower side of the Ichimoku cloud in the nearest future. Here NEO price may stay for a while or may skyrocket higher beyond the cloud. In the second case, we can see NEO/USD touching resistance level even today.

Binance Coin Six-Month Price Forecast – One Major Catalyst

📈 Price Predictions
Binance Coin (BNB) is the brainchild of one of the biggest crypto exchanges in the world; Binance
Binance Coin Six-Month Price Forecast – One Major Catalyst

 

Binance Coin (BNB) is the brainchild of one of the biggest crypto exchanges in the world; Binance. It runs natively on the Ethereum blockchain under the ERC20 protocol, has a total supply of 200 million and is the 10th cryptocurrency by Coinmarketcap. The token was initially launched in July 2017 and has a solid following.

Binance has a major long-term catalyst for its coin. The company plans to use 20% of their quarterly profits to buyback and then burn 50% of the entire supply of BNB. This means that eventually only 100 million BNB will exist which creates scarcity and possible price increase.

The latest coin burn occurred on January 16 when the Binance team destroyed $9.4 million worth of BNB tokens. Since then, Binance Coin enjoyed very bullish price action, which took it above $11.0

BNB/USD Technical Analysis – The Big Picture

In late 2018, Binance announced they are preparing to launch a Decentralized Exchange (DEX) and on January 20, 2019, said DEX entered public testnet phase. The DEX is powered by Binance Chain, which is a blockchain developed by - you guessed it – Binance. BNB, which is currently an ERC 20 token will eventually be migrated to the new blockchain and will become its native asset.

This could spell massive upswings for BNB in the long run, but could turn into adversity if the DEX fails to live up to expectations. One thing is certain: shortly after the announcement, Binance Coin started to enjoy positive sentiment and since then the token has risen from $6.20 to a high of $11.67, currently trading at $10.35.

BNB/USD chart by Tradingview

 

From a Weekly chart perspective, the token is not in a clear trend but it has been tracing lower highs and lower lows since it hit a recent high. The climb that started at $4.30 shows strong bullish pressure and could develop into long term bullish price action once the coin retraces to support. The Relative Strength is moving north, without being overbought, which supports a bullish scenario for the next months. For long-term bullish activity to happen resistance at $11.80 - $12.00 must be broken decisively.

On a Daily chart we can better see the importance of the resistance level at $11.80. It has been touched multiple times from above and below and more often than not, price was rejected. Most recently, we can see that rising price hit resistance at this level again and is now retracing lower.

Binance Coin

 

Considering all the factors involved, Binance Coin could climb into $18 area over the next six months but for this to happen Binance’s DEX must perform well. Immediate retracements should find support at $9.0, but a break below would not invalidate the long term bullish scenario as long as the trend line is intact and the DEX project is still viable.

Daily Chart Support: $9.0 and 100 days EMA (red line)
Weekly Chart Support: bullish trend line and $4.30
Daily Chart Resistance: $11.80 and $15.0
Weekly Chart Resistance: $11.80, $15.0 and $18.20
Most likely scenario: continuation of bullish movement, break of $11.80 and move into $15.0 where a deep retracement may occur; Longer-term a touch of $18 over a few months

Alternate scenario: breakdown below the bullish trend line

Ethereum Price Analysis from Twitter: From $145 to $200 and Higher? What’s the Chance of Ethereum Breaking Out?

📈 Price Predictions
Ethereum price predictions from Twitter: Can an ETH price of $145 be the sign of an uptrend?
Ethereum Price Analysis from Twitter: From $145 to $200 and Higher? What’s the Chance of Ethereum Breaking Out?

Ethereum is at the center of attention. There are a lot of things happening to ETH recently, but the best news is the uptrend which seems to have come. What do Twitter users think about it? Let’s trace the recent history of Ether and ETH price predictions in the latest tweets.

Starting from the middle of February, Ethereum began rising in price by 10%, step by step:

By February 21st, it has reached the $145 threshold. What’s going to happen next?

It’s not surprising that crypto traders remain skeptic after a long bear market. Most of them are still afraid of serious fluctuations. However, some are quite optimistic:

Many are sure that Ethereum is back on track:

Anyway, doesn’t it open new opportunities for investment?

What will accelerate Ethereum’s growth? There are a lot of changes to come, including the release of Constantinople, the overall market uptrend, and other aspects:

There’s a lot of fuss around Ethereum right now. For example, on February 21st, someone sold ETH for the highest fee in the history:

Samsung has integrated an Ethereum wallet into its new S10 phone, which seems to be a considerable step towards massive adoption of the cryptocurrency:

Yet, not all top players believe in Ethereum’s potential. Look at what’s happened recently:

Was Google right? Only time will show. We will continue watching Ethereum development trends.

The Latest Bitcoin Price Forecasts from Twitter: The Good, the Bad & the Real About BTC

📈 Price Predictions
Short-term Bitcoin price analysis from Twitter users. Is the bearish market over? What to expect from BTC performance in the nearest future?
The Latest Bitcoin Price Forecasts from Twitter: The Good, the Bad & the Real About BTC

Bitcoin is a crypto celebrity: its every movement is always under the spotlight. Twitter is full of posts and comments about BTC prospects. Both famous crypto pundits and unknown enthusiasts come up with ideas and theories. Let's check out what they think about the nearest future of Bitcoin and its price.

Bitcoin predictions from Twitter

A lot of Twitter users agree that Bitcoin needs to reach the $4K threshold to gain momentum. Just look at it:

On February 18th, Bitcoin finally reached the $4,000 target, and it split crypto enthusiasts into two camps. Like it was stated in the previous tweet, some users are sure that BTC will continue growing from now on.

The second half of users are sure it’s a trap:

On February 20th, the world has witnessed the largest amount of Bitcoin trading:

One explanation was provided by DataLight:

This is what has partially triggered Bitcoin’s growth. However, there are many factors contributing to BTC recovery. For example, Twitter user @AlecZiupsnys came up with a Bitcoin prediction of $50,000. His forecast is based on such facts as:

  • ETF speculations

  • High global stress

  • Rising interest rates

  • Bakkt launch

  • Wider adoption

  • Record buildup in US government debt

  • Struggling of the traditional market

Thus, the situation is quite questionable. From one point of view, Bitcoin might be starting to gain in value. From another – it might be a temporary situation.

Sooner or later, Bitcoin should gain in value because it renders a lot of benefits. Even Elon Musk has admitted it makes more sense than paper money:

Major Ripple Price Forecasts 2019 – Expectations vs Reality. Why a Value of $10 XRP Is Overestimation? [Updated: 19th Feb]

📈 Price Predictions
Ripple price forecast 2019: From $0.25 to $10 and higher. Whom to believe?
Major Ripple Price Forecasts 2019 – Expectations vs Reality. Why a Value of $10 XRP Is Overestimation? [Updated: 19th Feb]

Despite the fact that Ripple blows its competition out of the water and is retaining third place in the top-10 world cryptocurrencies, its price is still far from perfect. So far, it has been keeping in the range of $0.28-$0.35, and its current price is $0.31 (as of 02/18/19).

Ripple performance within the last 3 months
The Ripple price is slowly falling during the crypto winter

Experts continue making Ripple price predictions and forecasts. Some are realistic, while some sound like science fiction. Let’s check out the opinions of authoritative crypto experts and websites, and find out what are the chances their assumptions will materialize.

Major XRP price predictions 2019

Considering Ripple’s technological superiority and potential partnerships, many crypto experts believe that it must soon rally from its low. Here’s what they state:

  1. Ripple Coin News, one of the largest websites of its kind, predicts that 2019 will be a lucky period for Ripple, and its price can soar to the $8-10 mark. Such growth will be enabled by new technologies and partnerships.

  2. Daily Express, a UK newspaper, states that XRP is to hit the $5.06 mark.

  3. According to theoofy.com, continuous growth and stability of its position can make Ripple reach $1.2 by the end of 2019. That might happen in Q3 or Q4 2019 if things go smoothly. If XRP manages to double its value in the nearest time and enter the market at the rate of $0.78, it may reach $1.10 by the middle of 2019. The listing of Ripple on independent trading platforms and investment projects can accelerate this process.

  4. Investing Haven’s Ripple price prediction is $20 in 2019. Such forecast is based on the introduction of xRapid tech, partnerships with financial institutions, as well as XRP technological advantages.

Some other websites, including Xstreet, express.co.uk, and Investing PR state that Ripple’s value should reach about $3-5 by the end of this year.

However, some websites are less optimistic about that:

  • The 30rates website predicts that Ripple will stay somewhere between $0.259-$0.299 in March 2019.

  • Metro, a major UK newspaper, also predicts a Ripple price of $0.22-0.28. They are sure that Bitcoin will continue its dominance and is expected to reach $20,000 again.

  • The Economic Forecast Agency expects Ripple to fall further without naming particular numbers.

$10 Ripple price – How real is it?

Okay, we all hope for the best and want Ripple to reach its highest heights this year, but what are the chances of it overcoming a $10 mark?

We have already discussed the possibility of Ripple hitting $100 – it’s almost impossible. Let’s perform similar calculations:

Ripple’s overall supply is 99 991 698 361 XRP.

For 1 XRP to cost $10, Ripple’s market cap should be $999,916,983,610!

Think about it. Almost 1 trillion.

At the moment, Ripple’s market cap is $12.7 bln (1/83 of the desired goal).

Even Apple’s market cap is $800 bln, which proves there’s nothing impossible, but there are too many ‘What ifs’.

What if Ripple won’t stand the competition from Litecoin and Tron?

What if it won’t be as massively adopted as Ripple Labs’ plan?

What if governmental regulations will hinder Ripple implementation in banks?

For XRP to reach the $10 mark, we should witness a huge adoption rate from the world’s banks and financial institutions. Let’s be sincere: right now, all we can count on is a $1.20 price by the end of 2019. The current situation in the crypto market makes Ripple a great investment target, so don’t lose your chance. Sooner or later it should take off and soar high to the sky.

Update: According to Smartereum’s author Andreas Kaplan, with the current projections taken into account, most people in crypto sphere agree that Ripple value can go up to the $200-$300 range in 10 years. Even though this number seems to be even less realistic than the above-mentioned assumptions, there’s a grain of truth in what he bases his prediction on.

RippleLabs are working tight-lipped on their project, and keep attracting new and new partners: Accenture, Andreessen Horowitz, CME Ventures, Core Innovation Capital, Google Ventures, Santander Innoventures, SBI Group, Digital Ventures, Seagate, Standard Chartered and many other companies have expressed their willing to work with Ripple.

RippleLabs are on their way to make XRP a key token for both bank transfers and real-time payments:

Definitely, they’ve taken the right path, so XRP price growth is just a matter of time. While $100 Ripple price prediction still seems to be utopian, $5 is a goal that might be achieved in the nearest years.

Ethereum, Ripple, NEO, Cardano - Weekly Overview and Price Prediction

📈 Price Predictions
The crypto market is showing steady signs of improvement, adding over $6 billion to the overall market cap in the last 48 hours.
Ethereum, Ripple, NEO, Cardano - Weekly Overview and Price Prediction

The crypto market is showing steady signs of improvement, adding over $6 billion to the overall market cap in the last 48 hours. Bitcoin is also hinting at a stronger recovery but the O.G. cryptocurrency is not the only one in green, and certainly not the one moving the most. Ethereum, NEO, Cardano, and Ripple have all seen improvements and look like they could extend their gains.

Ethereum (ETH) Price Prediction

Ethereum has widened the gap between it and Ripple, the difference between the 2nd and 3rd ranked cryptocurrencies are now close to $2 billion. The widening is due to a massive surge in price for ETH, while XRP is trading only slightly bullish.

After successfully breaking resistance between $125 and $130 Ethereum is now trading at $140. The world's most advanced blockchain has added more than 15% in the last 7 days, with more than 10% over the last 24 hours, and momentum is building. The caveat is that the RSI is already in overbought territory (above 70) on a 4-hour chart and that price has been moving straight up for a substantial distance which means it is susceptible to profit-taking. While I expect to see ETH up by the end of the week, we will likely see some bearish retracement before then.

NEO (NEO)

With a market cap of just over $550 million, NEO is currently ranked at number 17 according to CoinMarketCap data. The coin added almost 9% over the last 7 days and is trading near $8.60 right now. NEO has bounced and moved above the 100-period Exponential Moving Average on a 4-hour chart which opens the door for a touch of the key resistance at $10. This is both a technical and psychological level which is very important regarding the medium to long term movement. Considering the way NEO has been moving, and the fact that it is not yet overbought, a touch of $10 could come as early as the end of this week.

Cardano (ADA) Price Prediction

Cardano is sitting at number 12 in the market cap rankings. It’s currently trading at 0.043 against the US Dollar and has added 5.58% in the last 24 hours. It seems like, after a period of sideways consolidation, ADA is waking up and aiming for resistance near $0.048. The 100 period EMA is relatively flat but with a bullish bias and so far offering good support. The RSI is just entering the overbought territory, a sign of strength, so we may see a touch of 0.048 by the end of the week.

ADA/USD chart by TradingView

Ripple (XRP) Price Prediction

Occupying 3rd place by the value of the total circulating supply, Ripple’s XRP is currently trading at $0.31 after spending an extended period hovering near $0.30. The pair is facing minor resistance at $0.32 that is so far holding price in check. We are now dealing with a classic “bounce or break” scenario in which price will move into the next resistance ($0.35) if it can successfully break $0.32 or it will drop towards $0.28 if the current resistance holds. We should know which scenario is more likely to come true by the end of the week.
