Cryptocurrency Prices, News and Technical Analysis

  • Bitcoin continues to lead the way and may continue to out-perform.
  • A period of consolidation may lie ahead as news flows dry up.

Cryptocurrencies Edge Higher but Price Action is Not Wholly Convincing

The early August sell-off has now all but been retraced as Bitcoin leads the market higher in low volume trading. While BTC looks set to push further ahead, other tokens/coins are finding upward momentum difficult to maintain with resistance levels nearing. Ethereum (ETH) and Bitcoin Cash (BCH) both seem stuck in a trading range, while Ripple faces strong resistance 3-4 cents higher.

Next week we will add regular analysis on EOS (EOS), Stellar (XLM) and NEO (NEO) to the five cryptos we currently cover.

Bitcoin (BTC) is currently back above $7,000 and has made eight higher lows in a row, a bullish chart pattern. There seems little in the way of a move back to the July 25 high at $8,481 although it may take time to achieve this target.
