Top 3 Price Prediction Bitcoin, Ethereum, Ripple: Crypto market doesn’t throw in the towel
“Every Champion was once a contender who refused to give up” – Rocky Balboa –
The crypto market continues to be stuck at the critical resistance levels and is beginning to show signs of depletion. The feeling on the charts is that the fight will go on for a few more rounds.
Elite boxing at its best currently sets the limit of fighting at 12 rounds, but in the last century, it was not unusual for fights to drag on until one of the two contestants kissed the canvas.
Neither King Bitcoin nor Altcoins’ armies will throw in the towel. With an outstanding record of survival from attack, criticism, suspicion, regulation and theft, the crypto market is here to stay.
Not all projects will survive in the long run, and new ones will come to claim their share of the market.
Ether has reached a key resistance level in its fight against Bitcoin coinciding with key resistance levels against the USD and may need to ring the bell and give up a couple of rounds against Bitcoin looking to regain strength.
However, it’s still possible that the eternal prince of cryptocurrencies will throw a winning punch and now he’s playing a game of trickery.
The Bitcoin dominance graph shows a definite increase in the chances of the King of cryptocurrencies regaining some of the lost ground.
The current Bitcoin dominance level is 64.44 while the SMA200 is currently moving at 67.31 while looking for the confluence with supports and trend lines at 66.50.
The indicators show an acceleration in momentum and an improvement in relative strength. The MACD still shows an immature profile to expect rapid rises in the dominance level.
The ETH/BTC pair is currently trading at the price level of 0.0255 after stopping when it reaches the upper level of the rising triangle figure. The bullish projection in the event of a resistance breakout marks the target level of 0.0365 (+42.97%). Continuing the boxing simile, Ether has a chance to put Bitcoin on the ropes.
On the downside, there is strong supports in the 0.0222 (-12.8%) zone.
Above the current price, the first resistance level is at 0.0258, then the second at 0.0267 and the third one at 0.0275.
Below the current price, the first support level is at 0.0255, then the second at 0.023 and the third one at 0.0227.
The MACD on the daily chart retains the bullish profile, both in the open and in sloped form. The technical aspect of this pair may worsen if the ETH/BTC pair is unable to overcome the current resistance levels.
The DMI on the daily chart is a perfect reflection of the current situation. The bulls are moving just above the ADX line, but for the time being, they avoid triggering the bearish pattern. The bears are continuing their downward trend and are still far from reaching extreme levels.
The BTC/USD pair is currently trading at the price level of $7090 and is playing above the upper line of the long-term bearish channel today.
Above the current price, the first resistance level is at $7400, then the second at $7600 and the third one at $8000.
Below the current price, the first support level is at $7000, then the second at $6800 and the third one at $6550.
The MACD on the daily chart shows a slight improvement in the profile, but it is not enough to take the moving averages out of the current sideways structure.
The DMI on the daily chart shows the bulls getting a bit of an edge on the bears, but they will need more money and the critical level of $8000 to win the fight.
The ETH/USD pair is currently trading at $181 and is unable to break the SMA100 at $185.2
Above the current price, the first resistance level is at $190, then the second at $195 and the third one at $200.
Below the current price, the first support level is at $180, then the second at $170 and the third one at $165.
The MACD on the daily chart shows an improvement in the upward trend of the moving averages. The gap between the lines continues to be minimal, and ETH/USD needs to break above $190 for the upward movement to resume.
The DMI on the daily chart shows bulls gaining height and distance from bears. The selling side is not confident in its strength and is maintaining its downward trend.
The XRP/USD pair is currently trading at the price level of $0.187, and it’s unable to exceed the EMA50 by $0.1924 for another day.
Above the current price, the first resistance level is at $0.1924, then the second at $0.20 and the third one at $0.218.
Below the current price, the first level of support is at $0.18, then the second at $0.17 and the third one at $0.162.
The MACD on the daily chart shows an entirely neutral profile, and only slightly tilted towards the bullish side as it is still in the positive zone of the indicator.
The DMI on the daily chart shows the bear has been monitoring the pair for ten days without any problems. The bulls don’t seem willing to dispute the pair’s control, but at least they are staying above the ADX line.

Controversial Analyst PlanB Updates Bitcoin (BTC) Halving Forecast, Predicts Breakout Crypto Rally
The controversial analyst who first applied the stock-to-flow ratio to Bitcoin (BTC) is updating his forecast for the leading cryptocurrency.
The pseudonymous analyst known in the industry as PlanB says he expects the upcoming halving event in May, which will reduce the new supply of BTC by half, will trigger a substantial rise in the price over the next one to two years.
He says Bitcoin’s next halving will determine whether the stock-to-flow model, which is used to measure how the scarcity of an asset relates to its price, is on point or a complete flop. If BTC doesn’t hit $70,000 by May of 2022, he says the model will be invalidated.
“[The] 2020 halving will be like 2012 and 2016. As per S2F model, I expect 10x price (order of magnitude, not precise) 1-2 years after the halving. Halving will be make-or-break for S2F model. I hope this halving will teach us more about underlying fundamentals & network effects…
$55k was the original model based on btc market cap. Later models, with newer data and other lost coin adjustment or yearly instead of monthly data, had different values, $70-100k.”
PlanB recently polled his 87,000 followers on Twitter, asking what they believe is the biggest risk to Bitcoin over the next year. The vast majority say it’s the economic aftermath of the coronavirus pandemic, which has claimed over 170,000 lives, rattled markets, shattered businesses and wiped out jobs.
What is the biggest risk for bitcoin next 12 months?
1) Halving, miner capitulation, miners selling
2) Futures, manipulation, naked short selling
3) Corona virus impact, correlation with stock market
4) MtGox trustee or PlusToken scammers selling
— PlanB (@100trillionUSD) April 15, 2020
The analyst says he’s not surprised that BTC has been highly correlated with traditional markets since mid-March, but he’s less worried about a long-term correlation.
“During crisis everything is correlated. What’s next is what’s interesting. They will not be correlated forever in my opinion.”
