Although Bitcoin (BTC) faced a rollback after its failed attempt to fix above $10,000, the bullish scenario remains relevant. Looking at the Relative Strength Index (RSI), one may observe a divergence. This confirms the strength of buyers pushing the rate of BTC higher.

If the bulls succeed in breaking the $10,000 mark, the next resistance will be around $10,300, and that might be attained next week.

At press time Bitcoin was trading at $9,731.


Ethereum (ETH) is also keeping up with BTC's growth; however, it is showing less of a rise than the main cryptocurrency. The chief altcoin has added 1.91% to its value since yesterday.

The trading patterns of Ethereum (ETH) are similar to Bitcoin (BTC). There is also a bullish divergence on the RSI and buyers' interest at the current levels. Moreover, there is high enough liquidity concentrated around the $220 area. If the market remains positive next week, there are high probability that the aforementioned level will be obtained shortly.

At press time, Ethereum was trading at $9,731.


XRP is showing the least amount of growth as compared to Bitcoin (BTC) and Ethereum (ETH). Since yesterday, the rate of growth has made up just 1.56% and 2.75% since last week.

If Bitcoin (BTC) and Ethereum (ETH) are showing bullish tendencies, XRP is the exception to the rule. Looking at the daily time frame, the bulls are already losing their efforts to push the rate higher. This is confirmed by the declining trading volume. Furthermore, the lines of the Bollinger Bands are moving down. As for the nearest price projection, traders might expect XRP to be located around its nearest resistance level of $0.1950 soon.

At press time, XRP was trading at $0.2030.
