Bitcoin, Ripple, Litecoin News and Analysis

- Litecoin and Ripple are testing important support levels.

- Bitcoin’s chart looks slightly more positive but volatility will remain low.

In periods of quiet trade/low volatility traders should read/re-read the Traits of Successful Traders guide to make sure they stick to market ‘best practice’.

Cryptocurrency Market Remains Soft but Bitcoin May Push Higher.

We looked at half-a-dozen cryptocurrencies during the webinar and came to the conclusion that the path of least resistance in most of the coins was lower, aside from Bitcoin. Litecoin (LTC) and Ripple (XRP) are both stuck in a downtrend with important support levels close by. Litecoin’s price has fallen after the news earlier in the week that the LitePay credit card launch had been cancelled, while Ripple has also been stuck in the middle of an important trading zone for the last week and may well break sharply lower.

The latest Bitcoin (BTC) chart on the other hand has a more positive set-up, trading above the recent downtrend line, although further confirmation is required to support the next move higher.

While turnover in the last 24-hours was relatively subdued, hefty trade in Tether (USDT) was noticeable against other currencies, especially Bitcoin. Tether has been in the headlines recently after its accountant dropped them at the end of last year while the CFTC sent the company, and exchange Bitfinex, subpoenas.
