Cardano Price Technical Analysis – ADA/USD Bearish Below $0.35

NewsBTC

Key Highlights

  • ADA price is struggling to recover and it recently declined below the $0.3200 level against the US Dollar (tethered).
  • There is a major declining channel forming with resistance at $0.3205 on the hourly chart of the ADA/USD pair (data feed via Bittrex).
  • The pair is currently correcting higher, but it may face a lot of resistance near $0.3250 and $0.3500 in the near term.

Cardano price declined further against the US Dollar and Bitcoin. ADA/USD is currently trading well below the $0.3500 level and in a bearish zone.

Cardano Price Decline

There was no major recovery in ADA price above the $0.3600 level against the US Dollar. The price did not move above the $0.4000 resistance and declined once again. During the recent slide, it broke the $0.3500 and $0.3300 support levels. It even traded below $0.3200 to test the $0.3000 area. A low was formed at $0.2995, and the price is currently consolidating losses around the $0.3000 level.

It is testing the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the last drop from the $0.3866 high to $0.2995 low. It seems like the price may find it hard to break the $0.3200 and $0.3300 resistance levels in the short term. There is also a major declining channel forming with resistance at $0.3205 on the hourly chart of the ADA/USD pair. The channel resistance at $0.3205 is near the 23.6% Fib level. If there is a break above $0.3205, the price may correct further higher. The next major resistance is near $0.3430 and the 50% Fib retracement level of the last drop from the $0.3866 high to $0.2995 low.

Ripple Price Technical Analysis – XRP/USD Tumbles Further

NewsBTC

Key Highlights

  • Ripple price could not hold the $0.9000 support and moved below the $0.8400 level against the US dollar.
  • There is a key bearish trend line forming with resistance at $0.8700 on the hourly chart of the XRP/USD pair (data source from SimpleFx).
  • The pair is trading around the $0.8400 level and is currently trading with a bearish bias.

Ripple price failed to move higher and declined against the US Dollar and Bitcoin. XRP/USD may correct a few points higher, but it could face resistance near $0.9000.

Ripple Price Upside Hurdle

There was an extension to yesterday’s decline in Ripple price from the $0.8800 swing high against the US Dollar. The price failed to hold the $0.9000 and $0.8400 support levels and declined further. An intraday low was formed at $0.8015 before price started a minor upside correction. It is currently trading above the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the last decline from the $0.9483 high to $0.8015 low.

However, there are many hurdles on the upside below the $0.9000 level. There is also a key bearish trend line forming with resistance at $0.8700 on the hourly chart of the XRP/USD pair. At the moment, the price is testing the 38.2% Fib retracement level of the last decline from the $0.9483 high to $0.8015 low. There is a chance of it moving further higher towards the $0.8700 or $0.8800 levels, but an upside break won’t be easy. Moreover, the 50% Fib retracement level of the last decline from the $0.9483 high to $0.8015 low is at $0.8749 to act as a resistance.

Ripple Price Technical Analysis XRP USD

On the downside, the $0.8100 and $0.8000 levels are decent supports. As long as the price is above the $0.8000 handle, it could make an attempt to recover above $0.9000.

Looking at the technical indicators:

Hourly MACD – The MACD for XRP/USD is slowly reducing its bearish slope.

Hourly RSI (Relative Strength Index) – The RSI for XRP/USD is currently moving higher towards the 50 level.

Major Support Level – $0.8000

Major Resistance Level – $0.9000

NewsBTC 2018-02-23 05:42:13

NewsBTC

Bears all over guys and so far, all altcoin gains from last week’s bullish run has been reversed. LTC, EOS, NEO, Lumens and even DASH are on a down trend testing last week’s lows.

Let’s have a look at these charts:

XLM/USD

Lumens Technical Analysis
XLM/USD Daily Chart for February 23, 2018

So far, Lumens sellers are trending right at last week’s lows and that’s a 100% retracement as far as price action is concerned.

Now, the thing is this week has been largely bearish-we can see that and track from what has been happening over the past couple of days.

If we zoom into the 4HR chart we notice that bear momentum is waning as candlestick are beginning to print away from the lower BB with stochastics at over sold territory.

This doesn’t mean much and isn’t our basis for going long or short but should be hinting especially now that we are looking for buy signal.

If any bullish engulfing candlestick prints and drive prices above $0.38, then I recommend longs if not and prices close below $0.30 today, then we better look for sell opportunities because that will be a bear break out below this ascending wedge.

DASH/USD

DASH/USD Technical Analysis
DASH/USD Daily Chart for February 23, 2018

Like the Lumens, DASH is on a down trend and if we view price developments in the 4HR chart then we notice that sellers are actually stepping on gas as they band along the lower BB.

In the daily chart however, we are at a cross road and wont recommend buy or sell unless there is a definitive follow through of yesterday’s bear pressure.

Remember, from previous analysis the middle BB and price around $620 remains a key price tag since it is right at previous bullish break out point and we are yet to know if this will turn out to be a retest or bear resumption despite last week’s bullish pressure.

In my view, buyers need prices to pick up and if there is a close above $620, then that would be a double bar reversal pattern or a retest right at the middle BB.

EOS/USD

EOS/USD Technical Analysis
EOS/USD Daily Chart for February 23, 2018

Because of yesterday’s bear confirmation, we remain neutral for the time being until we see what happens to EOS value at around $6 and $7.

Those are 2018 lows and should definitely influence prices in the short term.

The middle BB will continue being our first layer of resistance with $9.5 being our bull trigger assuming there is a strong reaction at $7 in the coming sessions.

LTC/USD

LTC/USD Technical Analysis
LTC/USD Daily Chart for February 23, 2018

From the chart, sellers are definitely in charge and as long as yesterday’s LTC bear pressure continue, then chances of the middle BB and $160 being hit is high.

Our strategy is on course and what remains today is if there will be a reaction at $180. If prices slow down and any bullish engulfing candlestick prints anywhere around support in the 4HR chart, then bulls can buy and spread out their entries.

Otherwise any surge past $160 will invalidate our initial bullish break out strategy.

NEO/USD

NEO/USD Technical Analysis
NEO/USD Daily Chart for February 23, 2018

Guys, all we can say is NEO is continuing with the shed. So far, $10 is off from yesterday’s lows and as long as bears continue with the swing, then chances are they shall test the break out line at $100  before a possible trend resumption happens.

Ethereum Price Technical Analysis – ETH/USD Decline Looks Real

NewsBTC

Key Highlights

  • ETH price faced a lot of selling pressure recently and declined below $810 against the US Dollar.
  • Yesterday’s highlighted major bearish trend line with current resistance at $820 is intact on the hourly chart of ETH/USD (data feed via SimpleFX).
  • The pair may correct a few points in the short term, but it remains in a downtrend below $840.

Ethereum price extended losses against the US Dollar and Bitcoin. ETH/USD declined as low as $776 and it is currently correcting higher toward barriers.

Ethereum Price Resistance

There was no major upside move in ETH price above the $860 level against the US Dollar. The price struggled to correct higher and it started a downside move below the $840 level. It declined and broke a couple of support levels such as $810 and $800. It traded as low as $776 from where a minor upside correction was initiated. However, the price may face many barriers on the upside on the way to $810.

It has moved above the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the last decline from the $858 high to $776 low. However, there is a major resistance near $810-820. More importantly, yesterday’s highlighted major bearish trend line with current resistance at $820 is intact on the hourly chart of ETH/USD. The trend line resistance is close to the 50% Fib retracement level of the last decline from the $858 high to $776 low. Therefore, if the price corrects further from the current levels, it could face sellers near the $820 and $825 levels. Above $825, the next major barrier for buyers is at $840.

Ethereum Price Technical Analysis ETH USD

On the downside, the recent low at $776 is a key intraday support. If the price fails to stay above $776, then it could accelerate declines towards the $750 level.

Hourly MACD – The MACD is gaining pace in the bearish zone.

Hourly RSI – The RSI is correcting higher, but with no major bullish sign.

Major Support Level – $776

Major Resistance Level – $825

Bitcoin Cash Price Technical Analysis – BCH/USD Breaks $1,200

NewsBTC

Key Points

  • Bitcoin cash price did not correct higher and declined below the $1,200 support against the US Dollar.
  • There are two bearish trend lines forming with resistance at $1,250 and $1,280 on the hourly chart of BCH/USD (data feed from SimpleFX).
  • The pair may decline more in the near term and it could even break the $1,100 support level.

Bitcoin cash price declined further below $1,200 against the US Dollar. BCH/USD looks set to extend the current decline towards or below $1,100.

Bitcoin Cash Price Resistance

There was no stopping sellers as bitcoin cash price failed to correction above the $1,300 level against the US Dollar. The price declined and broke yesterday’s low to trade below the $1,200 level. It opened the doors for more losses and the price traded towards $1,150. A low was formed at $1,134 and it seems like the price is struggling to correct higher in the short term.

On the upside, the price is facing resistance near the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the last drop from the $1,325 high to $1,134 low. There are many resistances on the upside below the $1,300 level. More importantly, there are two bearish trend lines forming with resistance at $1,250 and $1,280 on the hourly chart of BCH/USD. The first bearish trend line is close to the 50% Fib retracement level of the last drop from the $1,325 high to $1,134 low. Therefore, a break above the $1,250 and $1,260 levels won’t be easy. Above $1,260, the second trend line at $1,280 is the next hurdle.

Bitcoin Cash Price Technical Analysis BCH USD

On the downside, the recent low of $1,134 is a short-term support. If the price breaks the stated level, it could test the $1,100 level.

Looking at the technical indicators:

Hourly MACD – The MACD for BCH/USD is placed nicely in the bearish zone.

Hourly RSI (Relative Strength Index) – The RSI for BCH/USD is currently near the oversold levels.

Bitcoin Price Technical Analysis for 02/23/2018 – Short-Term Reversal Signal

NewsBTC

Bitcoin Price Key Highlights

  • Bitcoin price recently formed a head and shoulders pattern on its 1-hour chart.
  • Price has broken below the neckline to show that a downtrend is underway.
  • The chart pattern spans more than $1,000 in height so the resulting selloff could be of the same size.

Bitcoin price broke below a short-term head and shoulders pattern to signal that more losses are in the cards.

Technical Indicators Signals

The 100 SMA is above the longer-term 200 SMA to show that the path of least resistance is to the upside or that the rally could continue. However, the gap between the moving averages has narrowed to show that bearish momentum could kick in.

Stochastic is hovering around oversold levels and could turn higher to show that buyers are ready to get back in. RSI is also in the oversold area, which means that sellers are exhausted.

In that case, a pullback to the broken neckline around $10,250 could happen before selling pressure gains more traction.

Market Factors

The US dollar gave up ground to most of its peers in recent trading sessions as risk appetite picked up. However, bitcoin price failed to benefit from this as profit-taking is being blamed for the recent drop.

Zooming out to the longer-term charts shows that price hit a long-term area of interest at $12,000, which prompted some liquidation orders. This marked the second straight day of declines for bitcoin as positive sentiment over the recent regulatory news appears to be fading.

With that, bitcoin price could need a fresh positive catalyst before resuming its rally. Otherwise, it could revisit the lows closer to the $6,500 level as more and more officials are expressing their doubts about the cryptocurrency.

Apart from that, the SEC charged former cryptocurrency exchange BitFunder and its founder Jon E. Montroll with fraud for running the operation as an “unregistered securities exchange” and allegedly defrauded clients.

Ethereum Classic Price Technical Analysis – Can ETC/USD Reclaim $36?

NewsBTC

Key Highlights

  • Ethereum classic price declined sharply after trading above the $42.00 level against the US dollar.
  • There is a major bearish trend line forming with resistance at $35.20 on the hourly chart of the ETC/USD pair (Data feed via SimpleFX).
  • The pair is currently correcting higher, but it has to move above $36.00 to gain upside momentum.

Ethereum classic price declined this week from highs against the US Dollar and Bitcoin. ETC/USD could correct higher, but it must break the $36.00 resistance.

Ethereum Classic Price Resistance

In the last analysis, we saw a nice upside move in ETC price above the $40.00 level against the US dollar. The price even traded above the $42.00 level before it faced sellers. A high was formed near $42.36 before the price started a downside correction. It declined sharply and moved below the $38.00 and $35.00 support levels. A low was formed at $32.40 from where the price started an upside correction.

At the moment, the price is trading near the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the last decline from the $52.36 high to $32.40 low. There is also a major bearish trend line forming with resistance at $35.20 on the hourly chart of the ETC/USD pair. Above the trend line resistance, the 100 hourly simple moving average is positioned at $36.00. Moreover, the 38.2% Fib retracement level of the last decline from the $52.36 high to $32.40 low is near $36.00. Therefore, it seems like the $36.00 level and the 100 hourly SMA are important barriers for more recoveries in ETC.

Ethereum Classic Price Technical Analysis ETC USD

Buyers must push the price above the $36.00 level. If they fail, there are chances that the pair may decline once again back towards the $32.00 level in the near term.

Hourly MACD – The MACD for ETC/USD is currently reducing its bearish slope.

Hourly RSI – The RSI for ETC/USD is currently moving higher towards the 50 level.

Major Support Level – $32.00

Major Resistance Level – $36.00

Ripple Price Technical Analysis – XRP/USD is Facing Uphill Task

NewsBTC

Key Highlights

  • Ripple price declined below the $0.9500 support area yesterday against the US dollar.
  • There are two important bearish trend lines forming with resistance at $0.9400 and $1.00 on the hourly chart of the XRP/USD pair (data source from SimpleFx).
  • The pair is currently correcting higher, but it is likely to face a lot of sellers on the upside near 0.9500.

Ripple price declined further during the past few hours against the US Dollar and Bitcoin. XRP/USD is currently recovering, but upsides are likely to be capped.

Ripple Price Resistance

There was no respite for buyers as Ripple price declined further below $0.9800 against the US Dollar. The price traded lower and even broke the $0.9500 support level. It was under a lot of pressure, which resulted in a push below $0.9000. A low was formed near $0.8817 from where the price started an upside correction above the $0.9000 level.

It is currently testing the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the last drop from the $1.0811 high to $0.8817 low. There are many hurdles on the upside for buyers starting with $0.9500. Moreover, there are two important bearish trend lines forming with resistance at $0.9400 and $1.00 on the hourly chart of the XRP/USD pair. The second trend line resistance is very important since is it close to $1.00 and the 100 hourly simple moving average. Furthermore, the 50% Fib retracement level of the last drop from the $1.0811 high to $0.8817 low is at $0.9815 to prevent upsides.

Ripple Price Technical Analysis XRP USD

Therefore, if the price corrects higher from the current levels, then it could face sellers near $0.9600 and $0.9800. On the downside, the $0.9000 level is a major support followed by $0.8800.

Looking at the technical indicators:

Hourly MACD – The MACD for XRP/USD is currently reducing its bearish slope.

Hourly RSI (Relative Strength Index) – The RSI for XRP/USD is currently just below the 50 level.

Major Support Level – $0.9000

Major Resistance Level – $0.9800

Altcoin Analysis: NEO, EOS, LTC, IOT and Lumens

NewsBTC

There is a broad base correction back as we are seeing in pairs as NEO, EOS, LTC and even Lumens.

DASH remains resilient but there is room for downside especially if we see any depreciation below $620.

Selling looks like a very short term bet as we anticipate correction back towards break out levels. By doing so, prices would be completing the retest phase which is so common after any form of break outs.

Let’s have a look at these charts:

XLM/USD

XLM/USD Technical Analysis
XLM/USD Daily Chart for February 22, 2018

There are two important price developments that should influence price movements in the next sessions. One has to do with that breach and close below the middle BB and $0.40 in the daily chart.

The other is that bear candlestick banding along the lower BB in the 4HR chart. If we extrapolate our view and consider our previous analysis, then we realize that prices might actually fall back and retest $0.30 before we see some trend reversal bars printing in the 4HR or there about.

After all, as we have say time and time again, the trend in higher time frames take precedence. Confirmation of last week’s bull pressure is important and that is why any form of Lumens higher highs between $0.30 and $0.34 shall be a basis of long entries for aggressive buyers.

DASH/USD

DASH/USD Technical Analysis
DASH/USD Daily Chart for February 22, 2018

Relative to other tokens, DASH is actually resilient.

When we check price action, we notice that prices are actually resisting bear pressure and so far, despite clear sell pressure in other high cap tokens, prices are still hovering above $620, the middle BB.

In line with this, it means buyers are still in charge even if we have this clear stochastic sell signal following period of horizontal consolidation.

We are obviously in a bullish break out and we shall stick to buying on dips but for late entrants, proper entry should be at around $770. That’s slightly above February 16-20 consolidation or the 61.8% Fibonacci retracement level.

EOS/USD

EOS/USD Technical Analysis
EOS/USD 4HR Chart for February 22, 2018

The drop has been rapid and as it is, prices are back to the break out level.

Of course, if we consider our previous analysis, then we are bullish if and only if there is a bounce at around $8 and $8.0.

If not, and say sellers drive prices lower then we shall cancel this bullish forecast and stay out of this trade as we wait and see what happens at February 6 lows of around $6.

LTC/USD

LTC/USD Technical Analysis
LTC/USD Daily Chart for February 22, 2018

This is turning out to be a classic bullish break out pattern and we are right on the second phase-the retest.

In this case, even though our stops below $230 were hit as per yesterday’s analysis, the bearish engulfing candlestick means sellers might push prices right back to $160-$180 on the down side.

That is right at the middle BB in the daily chart where LTC buyers broke above the liquidating effect of the 20 period MA.

Now, as it is, sellers might drive prices lower in the course of the day and that is why bears ought to ride with the tide back to $160 or there about.

NEO/USD

NEO/USD Technical Analysis
NEO/USD 4HR Chart for February 22, 2018

Referring to yesterday’s price analysis, NEO sellers did slice through $130 like it didn’t exist. At the moment, the most likely destination looks to be $110 as per our earlier forecast.
