From the technical point of view, the rise is more possible than the drop. However, as part of the correction from the drop, bulls are still weak from updating the previous peaks. In this regard, a false breakout of $11,950 may occur soon.

Bitcoin is trading at $11,440 at press time.


Ethereum (ETH) has been more volatile than Bitcoin (BTC). The price of the chief altcoin has risen by 1.38% over the last 24 hours.

Ethereum (ETH) is located in the triangle pattern on the daily chart. The volatility is going down, which means that next week one may see a price rise. Even though liquidity is high, the trading volume is not enough to set new highs. That is why the more likely scenario is a retest of the resistance at $400, followed by a decline.

Ethereum is trading at $373.67 at press time.


XRP gained the least from the list today. The price of the coin has increased by only 0.27% since yesterday.

Moreover, there is no liquidity above, which makes the position of bears stronger. In addition, the falling channel has not been broken thus far. All in all, if the trading volume remains in the same place, a retest of the support of $0.22 may occur soon.

XRP is trading at $0.2421 at press time.
