Price Patterns to Monitor

The moves in Bitcoin Cash and Ethereum were especially surprising; they were much larger than the normal daily trading range associated with the currency. Technical traders may also wish to note the following developments in price action:

  • Litecoin and Ethereum don’t have a clear trend at this time, at least on a two-week timeframe.
  • Currencies in clear downtrend over the past two weeks are XRP, Bitcoin and Bitcoin Cash. If you prefer bear markets, they might be up your alley.
  • Momentum traders will want to note that Litecoin and Ethereum are getting very close to their 20-day moving average. Many technical traders view the 20-day average as a wall of resistance that can slow a trend until it is cleared — at which point the trend may accelerate.


What Does Transaction Data Tell Us?

Ripple had more transactions recorded on its chain yesterday than any other coin; to be precise, it had about 66% more transactions recorded than Ethereum, which was the runner up for the day in terms of transactions recorded. Ripple has a transaction fee less than the transaction fee of Ethereum, which may indicate that transaction fees might be a key reason why users are preferring Ripple. The largest transaction in the cryptocurrency space yesterday, coming in at a value of $35,532,876 occurred on Bitcoin’s chain. Bitcoin continues to dominate the crypto market, with the total circulating value of its currency equal to approximately $152.71 billion US dollars. That’s about 65.62% of the value of all circulating cryptocurrencies Its dominance has been in a downtrend over the past two weeks, going between 65.62% to 67.07%.
