4 Crypto Charts

Recommended Posts

Looking at the hourly charts this morning and all are pulling back from their run up yesterday. Ripple had made a tentative break over it's weekly resistance level on Thursday (red) but waited for a push by bitcoin on Friday to take off into clear space.

Bitcoin currently testing possible support around 6640 to form a base before another attempt higher.  And whoops no, that's just gone, now looking at 6557.

Bitcoin again trying to breach 6751 which has capped price for several days now, a breakout could lead to a bull rush. 

Remarkable correlation between the ether and litecoin charts though lite has just made a break while ether is capped by it's weekly support level red 247 and it's last 9 4hour bars have closely matched bitcoin so waiting for a break as well.

4 hour charts and 15 min bitcoin.

Quite correct, it's the similarities and differences I'm looking to highlight as well as seeing if bitcoin acts as a catalyst for them all and how quickly the others might respond, whether it's algo quick and/or human quick.

Ripple was interesting as it had made a break above the weekly resistance level and then didn't really know what to do until bitcoin made a break, then ripple took off into the clear space with nothing to slow it down until bitcoin halted at 6751 which was an old support level from the end of August.

Litecoin looks rearing to go but seems to be waiting for bitcoin and ether to overcome immediate resistance while ripple looks to be taking the day off, probably has a hangover after it's recent exertions. ?

I just realised that IG turn off their Crypto trading desk on Saturday mornings. I use IG for all stock trading, and would like to keep using them for Crypto CFD.  Unfortunately, its not possible...BTC moves fast and by holding a position over the weekend I risk being stopped out with significant loss.  Would be good if they opened the crypto desk 24/7...crypto never sleeps!

So no break for bitcoin over the weekend but the bull flag remains intact as the 6639 level is being defended this morning.

With regards the platform down time @Me7 & @TrendFollower it does give rise to gaps which can play havoc but even the exchanges themselves have to have periodic shutdowns for maintenance and updates. It wasn't that long ago when everything shut down for the whole weekend and gap fill strategies were part of the traders repertoire.

One aid that maybe useful would be the ability to add a guaranteed stop for over the weekend, I know some brokers provide this but not IG I think.

    • GBP/USD and EUR/USD come off their recent highs while EUR/GBP consolidates Outlook on EUR/USD, EUR/GBP and GBP/USD as they consolidate post European PMI data.    Axel Rudolph | Market Analyst, London | Publication date: Thursday 06 October 2022  EUR/USD consolidates below parity EUR/USD’s near 5% rally from its $0.9536 fresh 20-year September low faltered just below parity amid weaker than expected Eurozone purchasing managers index (PMI) data which continues to point towards a possible recession. The cross thus slid back to its two-week support line and may soon revisit the $0.9855 late September high. Further down minor support can be found around the $0.98 mark and also at the 3 October low at $0.9753. In case of the minor support line holding, parity may be revisited. Slightly above it the 55-day simple moving average (SMA) and the February-to-October downtrend line can be spotted at $1.0025 to $1.0038 and are likely to cap the upside this week. Source: IT-Finance.com EUR/GBP consolidates post weak Eurozone PMI data EUR/GBP has been trading in a less volatile fashion than last week when it shot up to its £0.9283 two-year high on the back of the UK’s mini budget which introduced the biggest tax cuts in 50 years. Following the government’s partial U-turn on Monday, EUR/GBP slid to this week’s low at £0.8649 before consolidating amid weak Eurozone PMI data and while awaiting UK construction PMI data. Further sideways trading seems to be at hand with minor resistance sitting at the £0.8787 mid-September high. If overcome, the 26 and 28 September lows at £0.8853 would be next in line. Below the recent low at £0.8649 lies the mid-September low at £0.8626 and the 55-day SMA and early September low at £0.8587 to £0.8567. Source: IT-Finance.com GBP/USD consolidates below this week’s high made close to $1.15 GBP/USD’s 11% rally from its all-time low at $1.035 following the UK governments largest, by some seen as unfunded, tax cuts in 50 years, seems to have stalled marginally below the $1.15 mark. Monday morning’s U-turn on the abolishment of the UK higher earners 45p tax rate cuts, only saving of around £2 billion out of a £45 billion fiscal loosening programme, and Wednesday’s decision by the Chancellor of the Exchequer Kwasi Kwarteng to freeze tax thresholds, which in three years’ time will deliver an extra £41 billion amid high inflation and rising wages, have not helped the pound which has so far slid back to $1.1228. GBP/USD now trades below minor technical resistance seen between the 7 and 16 September lows at $1.1351 to $1.1406 while immediate support below $1.1228 can be found along the two-week support line at $1.1178.

    • October trade was off to a roaring start until the speculative charge hit the skids this past session. We could try to connect the stumble to US data or Fed speculation, but the math doesn’t work out. More likely, seasonal positioning has worked through and now the markets are tuned back into tangible fundamentals. What does that mean?
