Bitcoin, Ripple, Litecoin Prices - Latest Rally May Have Further to Run

Bitcoin, Ripple, Litecoin Prices - Latest Rally May Have Further to Run

Nick Cawley, Strategist

Bitcoin (BTC), Ripple (XRP) and Litecoin (LTC) Price Outlook, Chart and Analysis:

  • Crypto-rally backed up by huge increase in volume.
  • Any sell-offs may suggest a new entry point.

IG Client Sentiment Datashow how retail are positioned in a variety of cryptocurrencies. See how daily and weekly positioning can affect our trading bias. Bitcoin (BTC) trade data show 76.6% of traders are net-long, a strong contrarian bearish signal. However, recent daily and weekly changes in sentiment suggest that Bitcoin may soon move higher.

Bitcoin (BTC) Rally May Target $10,000

The recent jump in Bitcoin may not be its last if any sell-off consolidates around the $7,400 level, and if the latest pick-up in volume continues. Bitcoin daily turnover hit just USD 32 billion on Tuesday, nearly six times the volume seen in mid-February when prices were stagnant around $3,650.The 40%+ rally in May has had no fundamental drivers but the charts have pointed to various attainable resistance levels that, if broken, would lead to further moves higher. A period of consolidation may be needed before the next move higher – preferably above $7,400 – and if this is the case, an old swing-high at $8,481, the 61.8% Fibonacci retracement around $9,400 and the May 4, 2018 high at $9,957 all need to be considered.

Ripple (XRP) Looking Overbought in the Short-Term

Another cryptocurrency that exploded higher in the last week and back to highs last seen in mid-December last year. While the Bitcoin chart looks overbought, Ripple looks extremely overbought using the CCI indictor and if the past is anything to go by, a sell-off may be on the cards. Initial support kicks-in around $0.37 - $0.38 ahead of a recent double-top and the 200-day moving average around $0.34. To the upside $0.57 followed by $0.77, the September 2018 ‘spike-high’.

Litecoin (LTC) Eyes $100 as Next Bull Target

Litecoin has moved higher, but in not such as explosive fashion as other cryptos and remains below the two-day spike at $100 seen in late April. This is the first target for a move higher, followed by an old swing-high at $128 and the May 2018 high at $183. The five recent higher lows in a row should provide support against any sell-off. Again, the chart looks overbought but has come off its recent peak.
