Looking at the daily time frame, the volatility is at its lowest level, which means that one might expect a sharp move next week. As Bitcoin (BTC) continues to be located above $8,500 mark, the bullish scenario prevails over the bearish tone. As the more likely scenario, the price may continue to fall until the $8,900 mark, followed by a continued upswing to above $9,500. The high level of liquidity is in the $9,300-$9,600 area. 

At press time, Bitcoin was trading at $9,252.


Ethereum (ETH) is showing almost the same price action as Bitcoin (BTC). The rate for the leading altcoin has increased by 0.36% over the last 24 hours.

According to the chart, Ethereum (ETH) is located around the $240 mark and against a declining trading volume. Before a rise continues, the altcoin might retest the basic line of the Bollinger Bands at $234 in order to gain enough strength to continue its upswing. If that occurs, then the next resistance mark is at $250, which the bulls may achieve by the end of the month.

At press time, Ethereum was trading at $239.82.


XRP has shown a much more significant price change over the last week as compared to Bitcoin (BTC) or Ethereum (ETH). The rate for the altcoin has skyrocketed up by 14.20%.

Although the price of XRP has a significant amount over from the last time, it still has potential room to grow. For the moment, its trading volume is low which means that growth is possible after a retest of $0.1966. If the volume increases, then the rise might last until $0.2115. Such a projection is relevant for the upcoming week.

At press time, XRP was trading at $0.2016.
