On the daily chart, Bitcoin (BTC) is approaching the resistance line of the Bollinger Bands indicator at around $9,500. There are small chances for it to break this line as, based on the declining trading volume, there is not enough power. In this case, we can expect a false break out at $9,500 followed by a continued decline to $8,800, the area of buyer interest. Such a scenario is relevant until the end of the current week.

Bitcoin is trading at $9,302 at press time.


Yesterday, in the morning, bears tried to push the price of Ethereum (ETH) to $233. However, buyers were able to seize the initiative and, by this morning, they returned the pair to the July maximum zone.

Despite the fact that the recovery looks quite dynamic, this morning the price of Ether could not gain a foothold above $243.34 and rolled back to the $240 area. If growth resumes during the day, the pair will test resistance at $247. Otherwise, Ethereum (ETH) may roll back below the two-hour EMA55.

Ethereum is trading at $242.66 at press time.


Yesterday, buyers were not able to overcome the $0.19 resistance. During the day, XRP fell back to support around $0.183, and in the Asian session, the bulls formed a powerful impulse that tested the psychological level of $0.20.
