As we noted in our analysis yesterday, the technical context for XRP is now wildly different from that which characterizes Ethereum Classic (ETC). In a sense, these are divergent poles in the geography of the cryptocurrency asset class over the past 10 days.

The real question here, if we are to treat this as an asset class, is which of these charts is telling the truth. We will examine the technical information to see if we can answer that question here today.

XRP

Price Analysis

  • High: $0.37836
  • Low: $0.34072
  • 24-Hour Volume: $266.96M
  • 7-day Percent Change: -15.76%

As should be clear by a simple glance at the chart, the technical picture for XRP has viciously deteriorated in recent days.

We had noted the staunch support found along the $0.43 level over the course of about a month, and the potential for that to play a make-or-break role in the evolution of this chart.

At this point, it is clear that the latter choice – “break” – is the one that has emerged to define the pattern right now for XRP.

It is important when doing this analysis that one leaves emotion completely out of the picture and concentrates on the technical facts at hand. In this case, the fact of a bearish descending triangle breakdown is the most salient one. The standard technical target for this pattern, now that the $0.38 level was sliced through like a hot knife cutting through butter, is defined by the range highs that serviced a bullish breakout back in mid-December of last year.

That level is between $0.28 and $0.30. However, this may be overshot on the downside, bringing into play the $0.20 level if the action continues to deteriorate.

That said, in all of this, it is important to remember one of the most critical insights for any successful trader: opportunities tend to ripen when there is blood on the chart.

Ethereum Classic (ETC)

Price Analysis

  • High: $17.2755
  • Low: $15.5863
  • 24-Hour Volume: $605.71M
  • 7-day Percent Change: 6.92%

Ethereum Classic (ETC) represents a dramatically different picture. In the real question is: was this chart simply buoyed over the short term by a flow of headline catalysts, and is now ready to join the rest of the cryptocurrency complex in a new leg lower?

Frankly, we should get that answer relatively soon. If Ethereum Classic (ETC) is able to quickly break underneath its 50-day simple moving average at the $16.50 level, that will represent a bad sign. However, even if this is the case, we will still have an important support level just below at the $15.75 level, representing recent range lows formed through the middle of July.

It is also important to understand that a number of key oscillators registered severe overbought levels on the Ethereum Classic (ETC) chart, as we pointed out in our analysis yesterday.

The resistance that has formed on the chart above is now staunchly defined by the 200-day simple moving average in confluence with the psychologically important $20 level.

Happy Trading~

After the crypto hype of 2017, a lot of newly-arrived crypto enthusiasts were caught off-guard by the price crash and bear market that took over in 2018. One month after another, investors were waiting for things to change, and for another bull run to take place. Unfortunately, this did not happen in 2018, and while the year’s final days were seemingly stable, the rally everyone wanted to see has failed to arrive.

However, crypto investors remain optimistic, with many of them hoping to see some changes arrive in 2019. There are rather great expectations of this year, especially since the last one failed to deliver. However, many are interested in what exactly is to be expected in this year, which is what we will talk about today.

Bitcoin ETF approval

The US SEC’s decision regarding Bitcoin ETFs was one of the most anticipated events throughout 2018. Sadly, the decision constantly got delayed, and the SEC never actually provided an answer. The last delay has pushed the decision into 2019, and it is now expected to arrive on February 27.

Historically, the SEC was never ready to approve Bitcoin ETF, and many believe that the delays came due to the fact that the market was not ready for then in 2018. This is backed by the fact that the SEC rejected multiple application throughout the year. VanEck and SolidX…

The new year was always considered to be a time of new beginnings, where people can reflect on the past and learn from their mistakes in order to be better in the future. The same is true for the world of crypto, and investors around the world are hoping for 2019 to be better, more profitable, and to have more success than 2018.

The hope for the future is even more important when we consider all the negative development in 2018. There were numerous high-profile hacking attacks, two market crashes, with a strong bear market in between. Not to mention that some of the biggest projects that may have brightened the year a bit ended up being delayed.

With that in mind, it is understandable why investors are looking forward to the new year and all the potential development that it may bring. In fact, there are several reasons why they should be excited about 2019.

1) Bearish market to loosen its grip

The first reason why 2019 can be a good year digital currencies is that it may finally break free of the bearish grip that has been felt ever since last January. Following the first market crash, the bears settled in, and the prices kept falling for an entire year. The market attempted to shake off the negativity on several occasions, with the biggest one being…

2018 has been a pretty bad year for digital coins, and after the initial market crash that occurred a year ago, everyone was expecting a bull run that will fix things. Obviously, it never arrived, and instead of that, all that crypto market experienced was an entire bearish year and another crash in mid-November.

Now, however, it is a brand new year, and attempts to shake off the bears’ grip can be seen even in these first two weeks. The market is still struggling and mostly losing value, rather than gaining, with most coins being in trouble once more. Still, a lot can happen in a year, and most investors remain optimistic regarding 2019. Here are some of the coins that are believed to have tremendous potential, and to be the hope of this year.

  1. Bitcoin (BTC)

Of course, Bitcoin comes first. This is the first cryptocurrency which is still dominating the market, with no other coin being even close to its market cap or price. BTC is the coin that has reached the most prominent heights, and it also lost the most in the previous year. However, there is still hope, as there are several projects and events scheduled for this year that might turn things around for the number one coin.

One thing that is expected is the approval of Bitcoin ETFs…
