Hot News

SEC Commissioner Hester Peirce proposed to give a three-year period to token projects before applying the current security laws to it, as a way to help the project adequately evolve. Although this proposal seems to please the sector, and even consider it necessary, there are many unanswered issues with this proposition, including what happens with the project regarded as immature. And the definition of what does it mean network maturity. Her proposal could be applied without the need for an act of Congress, but a majority of the SEC commissioners would need to sign on, and that is not yet clear.

“The next step is to get people to rip it apart and tell me what I did right, tell me what I got wrong,” said Hester Pierce.

 

Technical Analysis: Bitcoin

Bitcoin

After touching several times the lower side of the ascending channel and making several small- bodied bottoming candles, Bitcoin had 12 hours of strong push that sent its price back above $10K, precisely to $10,275, from where it was rejected. Currently, it is pulling back slightly, but now BTC is back above its 50-period SMA and also above its +1SD Bollinger line. $10,050 is acting as support of the price, which is, too, the current level of its 50-P SMA.

Ripple

Ripple

Ripple had a modest push up to the $0.3 level, from which it was rejected and now is close to the $0.29 level. The price has moved to the upper side of the Bollinger bands, and above the ascending trendline, while its MACD still is in a bullish phase.

We still consider the current action as bullish since, added to the technical factors in favor of it, the whole sector is bullish and highly correlated. The level to keep an eye on is $0.28. A drop below it would send XRP to test the $0.26 again.

Ethereum

Ethereum

Ethereum bounced strongly from its $249 level following several failed attempts to break the ascending trendline. The price moved up to near the $290 and now is pulling back to $275. The price still moves near its +1SD Bollinger line and touching the $275 support. The upward trend is strong; thus, we think it will soon resume its upward movement towards the $300 level.

Litecoin

Litecoin moved up above the support area and, after being rejected by the $78.4 level is ranging above $75.7. The price is moving close to its +1SD Bollinger line, and the MACD is bullish. Also, considering the overall bullishness of the crypto market, we think Litecoin should continue moving up and test its $83.5 level again.
