Bitcoin, Ethereum, Ripple -  Charts and Analysis for Next Week

Bitcoin, Ethereum, Ripple - Charts and Analysis for Next Week

Nick Cawley, Strategist

Bitcoin, Ripple, Ether – Charts, Prices and Analysis

  • Bitcoin (BTC) building for a push higher.
  • Ethereum (ETH) turning negative.
  • Ripple (XRP) needs to hold recent lows or further losses loom.

Altcoins Giving Back Recent Gains – Bitcoin Increases Market Dominance

The recent gains registered by a raft of altcoins – pumped higher by news that they may be listed by US exchange Coinbase – continue to be given back as enthusiasm fades. Against this background Bitcoin continues to gain market prominence and now commands a 45.1% market share, up from 35.7% in early May.

Bitcoin Chart Supportive if $7,000 Area Holds Firm

Bitcoin continues to consolidate recent gains and may push further ahead if support between $6,800 (50-day moving average) and $7,052 (May 28-29 lows) holds. The last three candles on the chart below show very narrow trading ranges which may leave BTC vulnerable to a downturn although seven higher lows in a row suggest any falls will be contained. The RSI indicator is also just starting to turn lower, a negative technical sign, but the reverse head and shoulders pattern – June 10 to July 17 – lends weight to a move higher in the short-term.

Ethereum Fails to Break $500 Decisively

Ethereum has failed to close, decisively, back above $500 since June 21 and is currently tending lower. Last week’s surge in cryptocurrency prices has been partially retraced with a full retracement suggesting $417 is likely if the bear trend persists. And a look at the four-hour chart suggests a head and shoulders pattern is near completion which may also point to lower prices on the horizon.

Ripple Looks Weak on the Four-Hour Chart

After breaking back above $0.52 at the start of the week, Ripple has once again fallen back to the familiar $0.45 trading area which guards the recent double-low at $0.425. XRP is now below all three moving averages and the RSI is just starting to turn lower. Ripple’s standing as the third largest cryptocurrency is also at risk with Bitcoin Cash just $4 billion away.
