Cryptocurrency Price Analysis: Bitcoin, Ethereum, Ripple, EOS and Litecoin (Feb 28)

by | Mar 1, 2019 | Bitcoin, Cryptocurrency

Summary

As the last week of February 2019 began, the various cryptos were on a downward trajectory. This is after they had put up a Bull Run that investors hoped would occasion an upward surge in prices. After the drastic drop on Sunday however, there seems to be a price reversal in the works. In all instances, the long term Moving average is facing downwards and about to cross under the short term Moving average. This signals a Bullish outlook in the coming days.

Investors are upbeat that the current bullish outlook is more than a dead cat bounce. Most RSIs show steady investor sentiments after the short bearish rally on February 24.

Seasoned crypto analysts argue that the Altcoins are on a retracement drive, urging calm. Bitcoin’s inability to break above the current Resistance zone of $4000 has been attributed as having triggered the bearish run. The effect was rippled across the other cryptos given Bitcoin’s market dominance.

The top five cryptocurrencies according to market capitalization performed as follows:
