Bitcoin Consolidates Recent Losses
Bitcoin (BTC) consolidated recent losses to start the weekend, as market volatility eased in today’s session. Following yesterday’s low of $22,213.24, BTC/USD rose to an intraday high of $22,444.19 earlier in the day – moving back above a long-term support point at $22,300 following Friday’s breakout. Additionally, the 14-day relative strength index (RSI) has also appeared to have found a floor which has helped ease the decline in price strength – tracking at 42.89 and marginally above the support point at 42.00. There is a risk however that the 10-day (red) and 25-day (blue) moving averages are on the brink of downward crossover which could signal future declines ahead for Bitcoin prices.
Ethereum Moves Back Into The Green
Ethereum also recovered following bearish momentum wearing off with ETH/USD hitting a high of $1,575.87 less than 24 hours after trading at a low of $1,552.45 – rising back above a price floor at $1,560. The RSI is now tracking at 45.21 – relatively higher than yesterday’s bottom at 44.51 as bulls rejected break out from 44 support level – should price strength move closer to resistance level at 48 there is strong possibility that ETH will be above 1 600 mark soon enough .
