BTC/USD and XRP/USD: Significant resistance encountered

On the 15-min chart, we can see that the price of Bitcoin came up to its significant horizontal resistance level at $6256 where interaction has been made. As stated, the price spiked up above it but immediately went back below it and has started to form a cluster as the interaction is verifying the resistance level. This horizontal level is the significant support which was broken in November last year and is now likely getting retested on the correctional movement to the upside. It is worth noting that this chart is the one from Bitfinex and is fairly higher compared to the other exchanges like for example Coinbase on which the price is currently being traded at $5871.

This means that the interaction with the significant horizontal level was only made on the Bitfinex chart which is why we still can’t say that the projection got invalidated as this level serves as an invalidation level for the projected scenario in which we are seeing an Intermediate WXY correction to the upside out of which the current upside movement is the 5th wave from the Y wave.

As we’ve seen a breakout to the upside from the symmetrical triangle formed over the weekend further upside would be expected but the significant resistance has been encountered which is why we could see a rejection taking place.


From yesterday’s low at $0.3104 the price of Ripple has increased by around 4% as it came up to $0.32286 at its highest point today. The price has retraced since and is currently being traded at $0.3176 and is in a downward trajectory. BTC/USD and XRP/USD: Significant resistance encountered

Looking at the 15-min chart you can see that an attempt for a breakout from the descending channel has been made but ended as a failure with the price retracing back inside the territory of the descending structure. Yesterday’s low was the interaction with the significant ascending trendline which is the baseline support from 207 and since it again served as support a bounce to the upside has been made which could be the first wave out of the next impulse wave to the upside.

If this is true than after the currently seen retracement would we could see another upside movement that is set to lead the price for a breakout to the upside but we could very well see another interaction with the baseline support in which case the price of Ripple would go back to $0.311 area before going to the 0.382 Fibonacci level at around $0.349.
