BTC and XRP - Recovery could end soon



The price of Bitcoin has been on the rise since the 8th of June when it fell to the $31,000 zone again. From there we have seen an increase of 31% measured to its highest point yesterday at $40,750. Now it is being traded slightly lower but is still in an upward trajectory overall.

BTC and XRPYou can see that the price fell for the third time to the $31,000 zone on the 8th of June on the hourly chart. This was done in a three-wave manner from the May 26th high but also from its June 3rd high. This creates a problem in counting waves as there isn’t still a clear sign that the price bottomed out. However for now we can assume that the price found support again on the 8th after which we have seen an impulsive rise. This could be an indication that we have seen the start of a new wave to the upside which is set to recover the price more significantly.

If this is true then the price should now develop a five-wave pattern which is why a higher high from here could be expected to the vicinity of the horizontal range of $42,000. After that the 2nd wave of the higher degree count should retrace the price before a breakout above the zone.


Ripple has seen a recovery of 18.5% from its low on the 8th of June when the price was sitting at $0.79 to its highest point at $0.929. Now its is being traded at $0.8819 but is looking like there is still more room to the upside.

BTC and XRPLooking at the hourly chart, we can see that the price found resistance yesterday on the prior high vicinity and made a minor retracement. A higher-high could now be seen as its fell to the support level of the horizontal range and looks like it will keep being traded above it. But the wave structure implies that this recovery could be an ABC correction to the upside after which the price could fall down below its support of the prior low at $0.8.

If the price keeps moving impulsively further to the upside and manages to go beyond $1 this scenario would look less likely.
