BTC/USD

According to the chart, Bitcoin (BTC) failed to break through the upper border of the descending triangle, which indicates the weakness of buyers. Now the price is slowly approaching the support zone of $8,900-$9,000, where buyers are likely to aggressively buy back while holding the level.

Perhaps this time the support will not resist, since a downtrend has been visible since June 1, when Bitcoin (BTC) was unable to gain a foothold below the $10,000 mark. Turning to the Ichimoku Cloud indicator, one sees that the price has already gone beyond the lower border of the "cloud." This suggests a possible fall to at least the support level of $8,600 around next week.

Bitcoin is trading at $9,082 at press time.

ETH/USD

Ethereum (ETH) made a retest of the support zone from July 6 at $230. The bearish pressure is still high, however, the altcoin might face a short correction to around $235 by the end of the week.

On the 4H chart, the selling trading volume is trending slightly downward, which means that sellers are running out of fuel to push the price deeper. A possibility of growth to the area around $235 is also supported by the high liquidity there. It is important to mention that this is just a correction and not the start of a bull run.

Ethereum is trading at $231.93 at press time.

XRP/USD

XRP quotes on the daily chart are pushed back from the upper border of the Bollinger Bands indicator, which indicates pressure from sellers. There was already a similar price rebound previously and a fall to the lower border of the indicator with an attempt to break it out.

A strong signal in favor of a decline is also a rebound from the resistance line on the RSI indicator, the values ​​of which have not even reached the level of 70. This behavior by the indicator suggests the presence of a downward impulse and the dominance of a bear market. In the event of a breakdown of the support area and price fixing below $0.1685, one can expect a decline to $0.1180.

XRP is trading at $0.1904 at press time.
