ETH/USD chart by TradingView

The technical chart for Ethereum (ETH) is more bearish than that of Bitcoin (BTC). The bullish divergence on the RSI indicator has not yet formed and the trading volume index is not high enough to push the rate higher. A more likely scenario in the following days is a continuation of sideways trading in the $220-$230 range.

Ethereum is trading at $223.92 at press time.


XRP quotes are moving in a general market trend. The upper boundary of the triangle has shifted. As such, there is a likelihood of continued sideways movement.

XRP/USD chart by TradingView

Even though the XRP rate hasn't fallen as much as the Bitcoin (BTC) and Ethereum (ETH) prices have, its short-term scenario is not bullish. The blue line of the MACD indicator has crossed the red line, having confirmed the presence of sellers. Moreover, trading volume remains high. Respectively, traders can expect a decline to around the $0.23 zone soon.

XRP is trading at $0.2328 at press time.
