Cryptocurrencies to Rethink Directional Trends: BTC, ETH, and XRP

  • BTC’s rejection at the bearish breaker $42,867 – $43,755 indicated a downtrend continuation.
  • Ethereum might start retracements as MRI displays a sell signal on the daily chart.
  • XRP seems ready for a slight drop as the alt retests the initial obstacle at $0.85.

Bitcoin faces blockades that pause its uptrends and even trigger price reversals. The sudden momentum fade has bears in the front seat. That catalyzed minor drops in alts like Ripple and Ethereum.

BTC Price Requires Breather.

Bitcoin maintained slow and stable uptrends since 13 March, gaining approximately 15%. That had BTC tagging the 4hr breaker, stretching between $42,867 and $43,755. However, the crypto encountered rejection.

For now, enthusiasts can expect the downswing to continue towards Monday lows of $40,417.Moreover, BTC can even hit the demand region in the $39,562 – $38,859 range.

Nevertheless, a 4hr candle close beyond $43,755 will overpower the bearish break, clearing the road for more gains.

Ethereum Price Appears Toppy

Ethereum saw its price piercing the weekly supply territory, stretching between $2,927 and $3.413, but could not move higher. The faded buying momentum plus sell signal by the Momentum Reversal Indicator shows ETH’s upward trend is unlikely.

The technical pattern predicts a 1-4 candle downtrend for Ethereum. Therefore, market players can expect the alt to revisit its weekly supply area at $2,541.

Despite the optimism about the upcoming ETH Merge, a weekly close under $2,541 will cancel the upside theory and catalyze a retracement towards the $2,000 lows.

Ripple Still Bulls

Ripple recorded impressive gains over the past week even as most alt struggled to climb higher or experienced losses. Nevertheless, XRP slows down following the 16% uptick to retest the $0.85 initial target.

Nevertheless, the remittance token maintains its bullish stance. Investors might expect XRP to dip lows and test $0.08 or $0.76 before catalyzing another surge towards $0.91, then $1.00.

Though Ripple seems highly optimistic, violating the 4hr demand area in the $0.68 – $0.70 range will overturn the bullish theory. While such a move would end XRP’s near-term uptrend, it will not annul the alt’s long-term bullish stance.

Ripple bulls can trigger another recovery move from the 9hr demand area, extending between $0.546 and $0.633.
