Weekly Crypto Roundup
Konstantin Kaiser • 2 min read
Bitcoin and the cryptocurrency market might go for a minor upswing this week. With them currently being in major support zones, chances are that the support will hold and a small uptrend will follow. Let’s look at the technicals of Bitcoin, Ethereum, Ripple and Litecoin.
BTC/USD DAILY CHART
Bitcoin is still in a strong support zone and looks good to go for a small uptrend towards the 0.236 fib resistance at $11,260. As long as Bitcoin holds above $9,135 it will probably go for a re-test of the $11,500 resistance. Once surpassed, the next resistance is at around $14,000. In case of a bearish break of the major support between $9,135 and $9,500, Bitcoin will most likely retrace down to its golden ratio support between $6,800 and $7,200.
ETH/USD DAILY CHART
Ethereum is exactly at the golden ratio support, which held successfully so far. Ethereum is currently in strong support regions up to $222 and it looks good for a small rise towards the $220 mark. After that, Ethereum finds its next resistance at the 0.382 fib level at $257. If Ethereum’s current support fails to hold, it finds the next major support around $140. But for now, it seems likely that Ethereum is rising in the short-term.
XRP/USD DAILY CHART
XRP is still in strong support regions and currently at a historical low. It finds its next resistance at around $0.30, where the 0.236 fib level acts as additional resistance. For now, it seems likely that XRP will continue to range between $0.25 and $0.30.
LTC/USD DAILY CHART
All technical indicators point towards a rise towards the $100 mark for LTC. In fact, LTC finds strong support between $65 and $70 at the golden ratio level where it is currently located at. The daily RSI as well as the MACD show a bullish divergence which hints that LTC is about to rise significantly in the near term.
