During the last 24 hours, cryptocurrencies continued retracing and presenting modest losses, buyers lacking the volume to push them further up. Bitcoin (-1.26%), Ethereum (-1.86%), Ripple ( -1.15%), Bitcoin Cash (-0.97%), Bitcoin SV (-4%) denote the kind of descents that happened. Neo (+5.21%) continued its ascents, followed by Ontology (+5.26%) and VET(+5.76%) and, notably, XAS (+18%) and IRIS (15%). Among Ethereum Tokens, MOF jumped 62.12%, followed by Numeraire – NMR (65%), IOST(17.49%), and OCEAN( 16%).

On its daily chart, we can see that Bitcoin is approaching its +1SD Bollinger line and is mostly out of the oversold region. The price is held by its 200-day SMA, and the MACD is healthy bullish. Therefore we see its daily outlook quite bullish.
The 4H chart shows the price moves between 0.38% and 0.5% retracement levels, with its volume descending. Thus, it seems the 0.5 level acts as a strong support level. The confluence of this Sudo-Fibonacci level and the $9,000 key level make us think buyers will hold this level. The question is, how much time will it remain as is?. The obvious answer is volume: we should monitor when volume comes back as this will indicate the next leg up.
Ripple continues moving in the lower side of the range between $0.293 and 0.3065, held bu the 50-period SMA. The MACD still shows bearish bias, and the price has bounced off of the mid-Bollinger line and moves below the -1SD line. That changes a bit its short-term outlook, but the daily timeframe still shows positive signs to more upside. But since the $0.306 level is such strong resistance, it is better to be in the sidelines until it is definitively breached.
Ethereum is following the same weakness of the Bitcoin and XRP. The price had a drop on Wednesday down to $179, bouncing from there but not able to cross the mid-Bollinger line it is moving below its -1SD line, while the traded volume keeps descending. MAC is still showing bearish bias. The current levels to keep are $188 and $179, but we have to keep an eye on volume, as said earlier, and, obviously, at BTC’s behavior.
Litecoin did not change much from yesterday’s outlook. The price crossed the triangular formation to the downside but did not break the $57.74 level, so it basically is moving in a range. MACD is showing signs of turning up, and the small bodies shown can signal a bottoming area.
As with the rest of the coins analyzed here, we need to observe an increase in the volume and the price moving to the upper side of the Bollinger bands. The two most important levels to have an eye on are $ 61.8 and $57.74
