The price of Bitcoin has risen by 2.37% from yesterday’s low at $9163 coming to $9380 at its highest point today. The price is now being traded around those levels and is still in an upward trajectory.
Looking at the hourly chart, you can see that a breakout has been made from the symmetrical triangle in which the price was bouncing from the 1st of June which a highly significant breakout. But there is yet to see confirmation as the price managed to move above it several times and its resistance levels haven’t been that much respected. This is why now we are most likely to see a move to the downside as a retracement back to some of the broken resistance levels for a retest of support before the upward trajectory would continue.
Prior to this spikey increase, we have seen the formation of the ascending triangle which appears to be a leading diagonal and is most likely the 1st wave of the higher degree impulse or the A wave from another ABC to the upside. In both cases, further upside movement would be expected from here as the impulsive move is to develop fully but if we have seen a proper breakout then the now labeled A wave would be the 1st out of the higher degree count which indicates that the price is headed for a sustainable uptrend in the upcoming weeks.
The price of Ripple has made an increase from yesterday’s low at $0.19433 of around 3.12% as it came up to $0.2 mark today. At the moment the price is being traded slightly lower and is showing signs of weakness but overall is still in an upward trajectory.
On the hourly chart, you can see that the price started breaking out from the minor descending trendline which was made from the 18th of July but came to the next one which started forming since the 9th of July when the price came up above $0.21 level and started a higher degree ABC to the downside. Now as the correction appears to be over and we have seen the first 12345 impulse wave with a lower degree three-wave retracement the move to the upside seen from yesterday is most likely the start of the next impulse of a lower degree which would be the 3rd wave of a higher degree count.
If this is true then the price of ripple is headed for a higher high compared to the one made on the 9th of July and is even headed likely even higher as another 5th wave of a higher degree should develop after another retracement.
