Bitcoin, Ripple, Ether, Litecoin: Support Turning to Resistance | Webinar

Bitcoin, Ripple, Ether, Litecoin Price Analysis

  • The cryptocurrency market needs some fundamental drivers to push prices higher.
  • Ripple (XRP) remains a binary SEC play and movement either way likely to be volatile.
  • Low volumes but Tether (USDT) pair trading noticeable.

IG Client Sentiment shows how retail clients are currently positioned in a wide range of cryptocurrencies and how positioning has changed over the last week - and data show retail are overwhelmingly long.

Cryptocurrency Prices Continue to Test Technical Support Levels

A lack of any good news continues to weigh on the cryptocurrency sector, keeping prices constrained by previous support levels. Any relief rallies are met by renewed selling interest leaving the charts looking neutral to negative overall. Ripple (XRP) continues to trade in the early-to-mid $0.40 area and is unlikely to make a break until the SEC decides/announces if the token is classified as a security or not. Overall turnover in the market remains low, although Tether (USDT) pair trading remains conspicuous across many exchanges. Looking ahead, cryptocurrencies need to break back above previous support levels to give bulls a positive signal, but in the meantime lower prices look likely in the short-term.
