Ethereum has found support at $177 - the level ETH has bounced off many times. Even though the long-term forecast remains bearish, the coin might show a slight rise shortly. Such a bullish tendency is confirmed by the MACD indicator which has recently turned green.

On the four-hour chart, XRP is looking exhausted. The recent price rise was not accompanied by an increase in trading volume. Thus, the line of RSI is moving down. At the moment, there are no signals that might indicate the growth either in the short or long-term scenarios. Summing up, XRP seems positioned to achieve the $0.28 mark by October 20.

XRP is trading at $0.2865 at press time.
