Cryptocurrency Charts: Bitcoin & Litecoin on a Similar Course

Cryptocurrency Charts: Bitcoin & Litecoin on a Similar Course

Highlights:

  • Bitcoin declining towards support zone, could be carving out a wedge
  • Litecoin also declining towards support, taking on similar path as Bitcoin
  • Ethereum struggling at top-side slope, decline towards trend-line could be next

Whether you’re a new or experienced cryptocurrency trader, we have several resources to help you; Introduction to bitcoin trading guide, indicator for tracking trader sentiment, archived articles, and a weekly webinar discussing the latest developments.

Bitcoin declining towards support, price action working towards possible wedge

Today, Bitcoin, along with other cryptocurrencies, is declining on overnight news that various South Korean exchanges were raided by tax officials and police. The drop in Bitcoin is taking it closer to the significant support zone in the vicinity of 11750/160 we’ve been discussing in recent days.

The most important aspect of noted support, is the slope rising up from May. It is viewed as a line-in-the-sand before a much larger decline could unfold. One possible scenario could play out in the weeks ahead is a wedge, either symmetrical or descending. More time will be needed to see it come to fruition, but certainly a scenario which would could hold significant value.

Price coiling up after the large run-up would likely lead to another explosion in volatility at some point. For now, though, it’s just a scenario – the bigger interest at the moment lies in whether Bitcoin can find buyers at or before the aforementioned support zone.

Litecoin acting similarly to Bitcoin, same wedge pattern could develop

Litecoin as of late is carving out a similar price sequence at Bitcoin, with the possibility of a wedge developing on the horizon. Big support clocks in at last month’s low around the 200-mark. If it is met and a bounce develops, a descending wedge will become a possibility. If buyers show up before, then a symmetrical triangle could form. In any event, it’s only a scenario at the moment.

Ethereum finds resistance at top-side slope, looking for pullback to trend-line

Ethereum is starting to pull off the top-side slope we penciled in yesterday as resistance and with a bit more selling it will soon meet the trend-line extending higher off the 12/22 spike-day low. This will be the first spot to watch for a bullish response by the market, but if it fails the next level of notable support won’t arrive until last month’s high at 863.
