Technical Analysis - Bitcoin

Bitcoin 4H

On Thursday’s morning, Bitcoin has bounced off the lower side of an ascending linear regression channel, after the corrective action made in the past days. The movement created an engulfing figure in the daily chart and a Morning Star pattern in the 4H chart. The rest of the day and early morning today has been spent consolidating levels around 7,100, after being rejected by the $7,200 level.

The price moved away from overbought levels and is now moving along the +1SD Bollinger line, confirming the upward trend. MACD is also bullish. The price needs to break the $7,200 level soon to continue and test the $7,400 level that many traders eye as the next target.

Ripple 4H

Ripple has been following the overall crypto market trends, but behaving weaker. XRP is having difficulties to cross the $0.19 level. Nevertheless, the asset has managed to create a new consolidation above the previous one, but limited to the upside by $0.193. 

After the bounce to the upper limit of the descending channel, XRP has crossed it and currently moves near the+1SD Bollinger line, as the bands spread and move slightly up, which is my definition of an uptrend. Buyers may consider entering positions on the breakout of the $0.193 level with a potential target at 0.205 level, the last swing high made on April 07.
