BTC and XRP - Has the correction ended?



From yesterday’s low at $30,340 the price of Bitcoin has increased by 20.71% as it came to $36,743 at its highest point today. Since then it has made a minor retracement and is currently sitting at around $35,340 and is in a downward trajectory.


Looking at the hourly chart, you can see that the price increase that ended on Friday was the ending wave from the higher degree count. This is why now we are seeing the development of the five-wave descending move. As it might have ended the price would now be expected to recover but as this is most likely the beginning of the descending move from the downside we are to see the downtrend continuation after the recovery has been made. 

If we are seeing the development of the ABC correction the price of Bitcoin could fall back to the $23,500 range before the correction ends. There could be a possibility that this would be a five-wave impulse rather than the ABC correction in which case the decrease could continue below $23,500. 

In the short-term, we are expecting that the price establishes support around the $30,000 area before a recovery to $37,550 which would be the 0.618 Fib level.


The price of Ripple has also been increasing and came up from $0.2575 at its lowest point yesterday to $0.308 at its highest today which was an increase of around 20%, but since today’s high made a pullback to the $0.29 area where is currently being traded.


On the hourly chart, we can see that this increase was the formation of the first five-wave impulse to the upside after a sharp and steep decline from $0.36 which is a 26.7% decrease measured to yesterday’s low.  This decrease made from Sunday was made after the price broke out from the forming triangle in which it was consolidating and was retesting its horizontal resistance level on which the price came up at its prior high.

The downfall seen could be the corrective wave to the downside after which now we are seeing the next impulse to the upside forming. As a lower degree five-wave count has been completed it will now be seen if this is the start of the higher degree wave 5 or the corrective ABC before further downside movement. The price is now likely to make another five-wave move in either way to the upside from whose momentum we are to evaluate either possiblities.
