Bitcoin, Ethereum, Litecoin: Prices, Charts and Analysis

  • Quiet markets and tight trading ranges.
  • Breaks, either way, are looking likely.

Bitcoin (BTC) Price Stuck Below Trend

The largest cryptocurrency by market capitalization, and de-facto crypto benchmark, Bitcoin remains stuck under a multi-month downtrend and above a noted zone of support. With trading ranges tight and trend lines meeting, the possibility for a sharp break-out is increasing by the day. While lower prices are more likely, a sharp break to the upside in the next few days cannot be discounted and traders should position stops accordingly.

Bitcoin Cash has broken above trend, just, while Ethereum and Litecoin chartsremain negative in the short-term. Ripple’s recent spike higher leaves the chart outlook mixed.
