Crypto Price Analysis & Overview August 13th: Bitcoin, Ethereum, Ripple, Cardano, & Binance Coin.

Bitcoin

Bitcoin saw a strong 13.9% price hike this week as the cryptocurrency continues the bullish run that started in late July when it penetrated above the descending wedge consolidation pattern.

Last Friday, BTC was trading beneath $42,000 but eventually surged higher above the resistance by the end of the day. By the weekend, BTC managed to hit the 200-day MA level at around $44,750.

It continued to surge higher on Monday to hit $46,500. However, BTC stalled there and started to head lower over the past few days until support was found at $44,000. It has since rebounded from there and is now back above $46,300.

Looking ahead, the first level of resistance lies at $46,500. This is followed by $47,800 (bearish .618 Fib Retracement), $39,400 (1.272 Fib Extension), and $50,000. Beyond $50K, added resistance lies at $50,740 (1.414 Fib Extension), $52,000, and $53,000 (bearish .786 Fib Retracement).

On the other side, the first support lies around $45,000 (200-day MA). This is followed by $44,000, $43,100 (.382 Fib), $42,000 (Jan 2021 high & 20-day MA), and $40,500.

Ethereum

Ethereum also performed well this week as it surged by a strong 14.7% to hit the current $3230 level. The cryptocurrency surged above an ascending price channel last Friday to hit resistance at around $3170.

Yesterday, it dropped lower into the support at $3000, closing the daily candle at $3036 (previous resistance). It has since rebounded from there today and is trading above $3200. A daily closing candle above $3200 today would signal that ETH is gearing up for another bullish swing into the following week.
