BTC, LTC & Ripple: Selling Set to Intensify Below Noted Levels

BTC, LTC & Ripple: Selling Set to Intensify Below Noted Levels

TECHNICAL HIGHLIGHTS:

Bitcoin broke wedge, watching 9222 closely

Litecoin also broke wedge, watching 137

Ripping dropping towards 87-line, break to accelerate

BITCOIN BROKE WEDGE, WATCHING 9222 CLOSELY

The other day, we noted wedge formations ready to break in Bitcoin and Litecoin, and indeed they made bearish breaks as anticipated. The drop so far hasn’t been fierce, but support is coming up soon, which if broken, should lead to an acceleration in selling.

The Jan 17 spike-low at 9222 is the big level to watch here. A breakdown below there and 7888 (also in confluence with the 200-day) becomes next up as targeted support. Below there, nothing signficant until 5555.

 

CHART 1 – BTC/USD: DAILY

LITECOIN ALSO BROKE WEDGE, WATCHING 137

While all cryptos are trading lower, Litecoin and Bitcoin have had very similar paths. They both formed solid-looking wedges and broke at the same time. The big level to watch is at 137.57, also a spike-low created on 1/17. Below there, nothing meaningful until just under 110 (also in confluence with the 200-day).

CHART 2 – LTC/USD: DAILY

RIPPLE DROPPING TOWARDS 87-LINE, BREAK TO ACCELERATE

Ripple is slowly trading lower in ‘drip-drip-drip’ fashion, which looks poised to accelerate, especially on a break of 87 cents. A break below will bring in the 50 cent area, where the trend-line from a year ago and the 200-day arrive.
