Bitcoin has resistance ahead which could at least put pause in bounce

The other day with the cryptocurrency space in a free-fall,
we were looking to potential points where they may find support and
bounce. Bitcoin found buyers ahead of the targeted 5555 level, and has
thus far maintained a bid.

However, rallies, even though they might be fierce at times, are
still viewed as potential selling opportunities as the bubble continues
to burst.

The first level of resistance arrives around 9222, the Jan
spike-low, then a trend-line not far beyond that level. A turn lower
will bring the Tuesday low at 5920 back into focus and then the 5555 low
from November.

Weekly reversal bars could be carved out if turnarounds hold the
next couple of sessions. We’ll discuss the potential implications soon
if relevant.

BTC/USD Daily Chart


Ripple has a big level to contend with in addition to trend resistance

The low in Ripple the other day came just above the 200-day MA,
one of the targeted levels. But like Bitcoin, it is quickly coming up on
resistance. The area to watch runs from horizontal resistance over 87
cents up to the trend-line running off the Jan high, clocking in around
94 cents.

The thinking on this end is that Ripple still has more to go on
the downside despite having already lost such a significant amount of
its value. The January 2017 trend-line is in the cross-hairs, and
eventually a full-reversal of the rally from the wedge which formed
during the second-half of last year.

Wedges leading to final pushes higher have a tendency of getting
fully erased, which would mean a move still down to around 25 cents once
the dust eventually settles. However, if resistance isn’t soon honored a
larger rebound may be in store before resuming lower.

Ethereum holding up best, but won’t escape the pull of the group

Ethereum continues to hold up the best of the group, and that may
continue to be the case, however; much lower prices over time look
inevitable for ETH/USD. Quickly coming into view is the underside of the
trend-line extending higher from November. This is also in proximity
with lows created during last month.

Looking lower, the low from Tuesday at 565 arrives as the first
level of support, followed up by the 200-day which is currently in
confluence with price support at 493. Like Ripple, a full reversal of
the rally from the 2017 wedge is anticipated at some point, which points
to a target of around 400.
