Price Action to Watch

XRP, Litecoin and Bitcoin Cash had especially unusual moves, in the sense that they were much larger than the normal daily trading range of each of those respective currencies. What caused these moves might be worthy of further investigation. Traders may also wish to bear in mind the following events going on regarding current price patterns:

  • If you are looking for coins in a clear uptrend, consider Bitcoin Cash and Ethereum; they’ve been in a clear uptrend over the past two weeks.
  • Litecoin doesn’t really have a clear trend one way or the other. If you abide by the adage “the trend is your friend” well, then Litecoin is no friend of yours. 🙂
