On the hourly chart, you can see that from last Monday we have seen the formation of another ascending channel in which the price has moved to the upside in a five-wave manner. This is why our previous count has been invalidated in which we have seen the formation of the 2nd corrective wave to the downside and another third was anticipated to start impulsively bringing the price of Bitcoin significantly lower.

This scenario might still be in play if this move to the upside was made in a three-wave manner as the 2nd wave out of the corrective count could bring the price to its point of origin, but since the price pathway looks more like it formed in a five-wave manner instead, it could indicate that another bullish upside move is to be anticipated.

If this is true then the price of Bitcoin is to break out to the upside above its significant horizontal resistance and can be set into an upward trajectory into another parabolic move as if manages to break it there isn’t any significant resistance until $15700 area.

XRP/USD

Last week the price of Ripple has decreased by 11.39% coming from its Mondays high at $0.3189 to its lowest point at $0.2826 made on Sunday. Since then recovery has been made above the $0.3 mark but with the price currently being traded slightly below it at around $0.2982.

On the hourly chart, you can see that a symmetrical triangle formed since the completion of the 5th wave on the 2nd of August when an impulsive move to the downside was seen with a large spike that pushed the price below $0.2473 level. From yesterday we have started seeing a breakout on the upside from the mentioned triangle and the price fell back to its resistance level to retest it for support.

As it appears that the support has been validated indicated buy the current green candle we are likely to see a breakout continuation with the price of Ripple starting to form another five-wave move to the upside.
