Top 3 Price Predictions: Bitcoin braces for critical support, Ethereum may endure before edging up, Ripple rout, no end in sight – Confluence Detector

Published

on

  • Bitcoin, Ethereum, and Ripple suffer another major sell-off, extending their falls.
  • The three cryptocurrencies have very different technical pictures.
  • The Confluence Detector shows clusters of technical levels according to their importance.

BTC/USD has strong support at $6,381

The price of Bitcoin has support at $6,381. This is the convergence of the Bolinger Band one-hour Lower, the Pivot Point one month Support 1, the Pivot Point one-day Support 1 and the 1h-low.

If BTC/USD holds onto this critical level, it could target $6,637 which is the confluence of the Fibonacci 38.2% one-day, the 4h-high, the Simple Moving Average 100-15m, and the Bolinger Band 15m-Upper.

The next level above is $7047 which is the one-month low.

And what happens if Bitcoin loses $6,381? Things could get ugly with some support at $6,200 and $5,950.

This is how it looks:

ETH/USD has more room to fall, but support awaits

The Ethereum Price does not have immediate support. ETH/USD may fall to a weak support line of $451 which is the Pivot Point one-day Support 2. Yet stronger support is at $442 which is the Pivot Point one-month Support 1.

Recovering will not be so easy. The $476 level is the convergence of the Pivot Point one-day Support 1 and the Simple Moving Average 5-15m. Stronger resistance is at $485 which is the meeting point of the 1d-high and the Simple moving Average 5-1h.

Further above, the $500 area is the congestion of the Fibonacci 23.6% one-day, the Bolinger Band 1h-Middle, the SMA 5-4h, and the one-month low. It is closely followed by $507 which is the congestion of the Simple Moving Average 100-15m, the Fibonacci 38.2% one-day, the Bolinger Band 15m-Upper, and the Bollinger Band one-day Lower.

Here is how it looks:

XRP/USD can fall and fall

The price of Ripple.is in a precarious state. It has lost critical support at $0.545 which is the confluence of the one-day high, the one-month low, the Bolinger Band one-day Lower, the Simple Moving Average 10-15m, the SMA 5-1h and more.

Looking down, there is some support around $0.5134 which is the Pivot Point one-day Support 2. Another notable line is 0.4800 which is the Pivot Point one-day Support 1.

On the upside, if XRP/USD recovers above $0.545, the next level to watch is $0.566 which is the Fibonacci 38.2% one-day, the Pivot Point one-week Support 3, and the Bolinger Band 15m-Upper.

This is how it looks:

The Confluence Detector finds exciting opportunities using Technical Confluences. The TC is a tool to locate and point out those price levels where there is a congestion of indicators, moving averages, Fibonacci levels, Pivot Points, etc. Knowing where these congestion points are located is very useful for the trader, and can be used as a basis for different strategies.

This tool assigns a certain amount of “weight” to each indicator, and this “weight” can influence adjacents price levels. These weightings mean that one price level without any indicator or moving average but under the influence of two “strongly weighted” levels accumulate more resistance than their neighbors. In these cases, the tool signals resistance in apparently empty areas.

Bitcoin, Ethereum, Ripple, Bitcoin Cash, EOS, Stellar, Litecoin, Cardano, Monero, TRON: Price Analysis, October 19

Published

on

The views and opinions expressed here are solely those of the author and do not necessarily reflect the views of Cointelegraph. Every investment and trading move involves risk, you should conduct your own research when making a decision.

The market data is provided by the HitBTC exchange.

Retail investors tend to run for cover when the market falls, whereas the professionals get their buy list ready to take advantage of the bargain prices. Though the trading volumes have been falling in the past few months, the merger and acquisition (M&A) activity is on an upswing.

Recently, Goldman Sachs and Mike Novogratz, CEO of Galaxy Digital, invested $15 million in the crypto custody service BitGo. Data from PitchBook, compiled by JMP Securities, shows that there are likely to be 145 crypto- and blockchain-related deals by the end of this year, well above the previous year’s count of 47.

Price-wise, some analysts believe that the calm in the markets is about to end. They expect Bitcoin to take a decisive direction within the next 1–2 weeks. Do the charts point to a potential breakout or a breakdown? Let’s find out.

BTC/USD

Bitcoin has failed to break out of the overhead resistance at $6,831.99, resulting in a move down. Currently, the price is at the moving averages, which might act as a support. However, if the bears break this level, the digital currency can slide to the next lower support at $6,250.

BTC/USD

A lack of follow-up buying after the surge on Oct. 15 is a bearish sign. It shows that the market participants are in a hurry to close their positions during every small rally. Both moving averages are flat and the RSI is close to the midpoint. This points to a consolidation in the near-term.

The BTC/USD pair can remain range bound between $5,900–$6,832 for the next few days. A breakout or breakdown of this range will start the next directional move.

On the upside, the bulls should watch the levels of $7,400 and $8,400. On the downside, a break of $5,900 will trigger panic selling among the participants, plunging the price to $5,450, and further to $5,000 in a short time.

We suggest traders close their long positions if the pair breaks the support at $5,900.

ETH/USD

Ethereum remains weak. It might retest the bottom of the range of $192.5–$249.93. If the bears succeed in breaking down of the range, a retest of a Sept. 12 low of $167.32 is probable.

ETH/USD

Any attempt to pull back will face a stiff resistance at the moving averages and above that at $249.93. The ETH/USD pair will show signs of strength if it sustains above the range.

The traders should wait for a breakout and close (UTC time frame) above $250 to initiate any long positions. Until then, it is best to remain on the sidelines.

XRP/USD

Ripple has marginally dipped below the 20-day EMA, which shows profit booking at higher levels. Both moving averages remain flat and the RSI is close to the neutral territory. This points to a consolidation in the short-term.

XRP/USD

The XRP/USD pair will become negative on a breakdown of the support at $0.37185. On the upside, it has a slew of resistances at $0.5, $0.55 and $0.625. It will resume its uptrend if it sustains above $0.625. We don’t find any reliable buy setups at the current levels; hence, we are not suggesting any trades on the pair.

BCH/USD

A lack of buying has pushed Bitcoin Cash to the support line of the symmetrical triangle. A breakdown of the triangle will resume the downtrend and sink prices to $300 with a minor support at the Sept. 11 intraday low of $408.0182. Therefore, traders should protect their long positions with the stops at $400.

BCH/USD

The 20-day EMA has started to turn down after remaining flat for the past few days. The RSI is also in the negative territory. This shows sellers have the upper hand. The BCH/USD pair will show signs of strength if the bulls break out of the triangle.

EOS/USD

There is nothing much happening in EOS as it continues to trade close to the moving averages. It has been trading inside the range $4.4930–$6.8299 for the past two months. The flat moving averages and the RSI in the neutral territory suggest equilibrium between the buyers and the sellers.

EOS/USD

The buyers will have an upper hand if they succeed in pushing the EOS/USD pair above the overhead resistance of $6.8299. A break down of the support zone at $3.8723–$4.49 will tilt the advantage in favor of the bears. Therefore, the traders holding long positions should keep a stop loss of $4.9.

XLM/USD

Stellar broke out of the overhead resistance at $0.24987525 on Oct. 17 and 18. However, on both occasions, the bulls could not sustain the higher levels.

XLM/USD

We remain positive on the XLM/USD pair because it continues to trade above both moving averages, which are starting to turn up. If the bulls break out and close above the overhead resistance, it will invalidate the bearish descending triangle, which is a bullish sign. Therefore, we retain our buy suggested in the previous analysis.

On the downside, the digital currency will find buying support at the moving averages. Any break of this support can retest the zone between $0.204 and $0.2148.

LTC/USD

Litecoin continues to trade below both moving averages, which is a negative sign. A break below $52 can result in a drop to the bottom of the range at $49.466. This will be the fourth visit to the bottom of the $49.466–$69.279 range since Aug. 14.

LTC/USD

If the bears break down and close below the range, a fall to the next lower support of $40 is probable.

The LTC/USD pair will signal a change in trend only after a breakout and close (UTC time frame) above the range. We believe the traders should wait for a break out of the range before initiating any long positions in it.

ADA/USD

Cardano turned down from the 50-day SMA on Oct. 17. It is likely to find some support at $0.069, below which it can drop to the critical support at $0.060105.

ADA/USD

Both moving averages are flat and the RSI is inching towards the neutral territory. This shows a balance between both the buyers and the sellers.

The ADA/USD pair will pick up momentum if it scales above the overhead resistance at $0.094256 and $0.111843. We don’t find any buy setups at the current levels; hence, we are not proposing any trades.

XMR/USD

After failing to scale above the moving averages in the past few days, Monero has again dipped below the support of $107.8. It can now slide to the next support at $100, below which a drop to $81 is possible.

XMR/USD

Both moving averages are flat and the RSI is in the negative territory. This shows the probability of a consolidation in the near-term.

The XMR/USD pair can move up to $128.65 if it scales above the moving averages. We shall wait for a new buy setup to form before suggesting any trades.

TRX/USD

TRON has been holding above the 20-day EMA for the past four days, which is a positive sign. It will indicate a change in trend if the bulls break out and close (UTC time frame) above the overhead resistance at $0.02815521.

TRX/USD

The traders can buy a close (UTC time frame) above $0.03 with a target objective of $0.41. The initial stop loss can be kept at $0.02, which can be raised later.

The TRX/USD pair will weaken and sink to $0.02 if it breaks below the moving averages. We don’t find any trade inside the $0.0183–$0.02815521 range.
