BTC/USD

The current move could still be a false breakout to reset stop orders as Bitcoin (BTC) has not hit its July high of $9,470. There was no active movement after overcoming $9,360. In the price movements of the past week, one can find hints of more significant growth. For example, for the first time in a long time, the zone of buyer activity has not fallen but has shifted upto the zone with the middle at $9,130.

The upward shift of the support zone does not determine further growth. To confirm growth, it is necessary to at least overcome $9,560the upper border of the previous accumulation zone. A typical accumulation zone shift of about $200 for this market, however, may be lessgiven the ever-decreasing volatility. This means that in the scenario with an increase, the support would be around $9,330.

Bitcoin is trading at $9,333 at press time.

ETH/USD

Yesterday buyers managed to gain a foothold above the side channel and test the resistance of $247 at the end of the day. The price retraced slightly overnight but has not yet reached the nearest support level, which is around $242.

Most likely, the Ethereum (ETH) price will test the upper border of the blue range today. If it stops the rollback, then a recovery to the July high of $250 is possible soon.

XRP/USD chart by TradingView

By this morning, the pair has settled in a narrow sideways range between the level of average prices and the resistance of $0.20. If bulls intensify the onslaught throughout the day, they will break the Point of Control indicator line ($0.203) and continue to rise to the resistance area of ​​$0.213. In case bears strengthen the pressure and knock the pair out of the sideways range with support in the form of the 2H EMA55, then the decline will reach support at the level of $0.190.

XRP is trading at $0.1979 at press time.
