BTC and XRP - More upside expected

FXOpen

BTC/USD

From yesterday’s open when the price of Bitcoin was sitting at $9402, we have seen an increase of 10.44% measured to the highest point the price has been today which is at $10383. Since then we have seen a minor retracement with the price currently being traded at $10137.BTC and XRP - More upside expectedAs you can see by looking at the hourly chart, the previous count has been invalidated as the price spiked above the May’s high previously presumed to be the ending point of the X wave of a higher degree. After it’s completion we have seen an impulsive move which was labeled as the 1st wave out of the starting impulse to the downside but now as the price got above the presumed starting point of the 1st wave we have seen an invalidation.

An ascending channel has started forming unline the previous triangle which was also invalidated but the ascending channel is still unconfirmed even though we might have seen a retest of the lower resistance level.

A retest of its upper resistance level could be expected as we are most likely seeing the development of another five-wave impulse to the upside which if corrective in nature should be the end of this increase and would be expected to reach $10500-10700 area.

If the price continues moving for another upward move then this would be the start of the 5th wave of a higher degree count.

XRP/USD

The price of Ripple has increased by 7.1% from yesterday’s low $0.2 measured to today’s high at $0.2154. It’s still being traded unlike in the case of Bitcoin.

BTC and XRP - More upside expectedOn the hourly chart, you can see that the prior count has been invalidated with the prior descending five-wave impulse ending at the significant horizontal $0.18939 after which it appears that a corrective three-wave increase has started.

This is why I would be expecting a further increase to around the vicinity of the ending point of the 2nd wave from the previous descending impulse bringing the price target $0.222. According to this new count, it would be the completion of the C wave from the upward ABC after which further downtrend continuation would be anticipated.

If however the price exceeds this level and makes a minor retracement before continuing to move further to the upside it could indicate that we are seeing the development of a new uptrend altogether with the current ascending move being the 3rd wave out of the five-wave impulse instead of the now presumed C wave.
