If the bulls defend the support zone $4,914.11, will again try to resume its up move. The levels to watch on the upside are $5,600 and above it $5,900.Hence, we recommended closing partial positions above $5,600 in our previous analysis.The stop loss on the remaining long positions can be kept at $4,800.The next few days are critical for the leading digital currency.


If the ETH/USD pair fails to scale above $167.32, the bears will again try to break down. If successful, the pair can decline to $144.78 and below.This suggests that the bears are staging a comeback. We will wait for the price to sustain above $167.32 before turning positive once again.


XRP has dropped to the critical support of $0.27795. If this support breaks down, the next stop is the retest of the yearly low at $0.24508.The best way to trade in a range is to buy close to the bottom and sell at the resistance, but we suggest traders avoid buying now because the pair has been a huge underperformer in the past few days. This suggests a lack of buying interest.


BCH is trying to hold the critical support zone between $255 and $241.97. The pair is at a critical level. We wait for a buy setup to form before suggesting a long position in it.
