Ripple Daily Price CHART (Sep 25 – JAn 16, 2020) Zoomed in

Ripple daily price chart 16-01-20 Zoomed in

Looking at the daily chart, we notice that on Sunday Ripple closed above the 50-Day average producing a bullish signal. Thus, the price could be on its way for a test of the high end of current trading zone $0.174 - $0.280.

A close above the high end of the zone may convince buyers to push XPR/USD towards $0.311. Further close above this level might cause more bullishness towards $0.375. In that scenario, the weekly resistance levels underscored on the chart (zoomed in) should be kept in focus.

On the other hand, a close below the low end of the zone could resume bearish price action towards $0.128 contingent on clearing the weekly support level underlined on the chart.

Ethereum Daily PRice CHART (AUG 25 – JAn 15, 2020) Zoomed In

Ethereum daily price chart 16-01-20 Zoomed in PNG

From the daily chart, we notice on Jan 10 ETH/USD closed above the 50-Day Average generating a bullish signal. In the following week, the crypto currency rushed to a higher trading zone $152.17 - $186.98.

A close above the high end of the zone could lead more buyers to join the market and rally the ETH/USD towards $203.42. Yet, the weekly resistance levels underlined on the chart (zoomed in) should be considered as some traders may exit/join the market nearby these points.

On the flip side, a close below the low end of the zone may lead buyers to exit the market. This could reverse the price’s direction towards $125.86. Further close below this level opens the door for sellers to press towards 100.34. Nevertheless, the weekly support levels marked on the chart should be monitored.
