Today’s BTC, LTC, XRP Price Analysis: Top Cryptocurrencies Trying to Build Bullish Momentum
Bitcoin (BTC/USD) Forecast
1 BTC/USD =$23,455.7445 change ~ -1.90%
From yesterday's low at $9931 the price of Bitcoin increased by 10% as it came up to $10932.2 at its highest point today. The price is currently being traded slightly lower at $10676 as a minor pullback occurred.
On the hourly chart, you can see that the price came above the 0.236 Fib level on today's high and is currently retesting it for support on the retracement. The price is slightly below the Fib level but we can't say that a breakout started as the price managed to stay around the level for eight hours. Today's high was followed by wicks from the upper side which indicates that the price has entered the seller's territory but we have seen a wick from the lower side on the hourly candle below the 0.236 Fib level which indicated buyers presence.
As the price is stuck in a consolidative range after an increase we could see a breakout from both sides. The price could find support here and continue moving to the upside for interaction with the next Fib level at $11308.1 or the seller's pressure might be proven stronger in which case a drop below 0.236 level would occur.
We have seen the completion of the three-wave move to the downside yesterday which was most likely the third ABC correction out of the higher degree WXY. The recovery which followed could either be the start of the next impulse wave to the upside if the correction ended or could be the 4th corrective wave after another 5th one to the downside occurs in which case the downfall seen from the 10th of July when the price of Bitcoin was $13100 would be a five-wave move instead of the now labeled ABC.
If the price doesn't exceed the 0.382 Fibonacci level on the current rise and rejection there causes a downfall below the 0.236 Fibonacci level, a lower low and the 5th wave scenario would look likely. But if the price manages to increase to the 0.5 Fib level at $11768.1 the start of another upside move would look more likely.

Ripple (XRP/USD) Forecast
1 XRP/USD =$0.2464 change ~ 2.46%
From yesterday's low at $0.29979 the price of Ripple has increased by 6.63% today as it came up to $0.31996 at its highest point today. The price is currently being traded at around $0.31 as a minor retracement occurred.
On yesterday's low, the price spiked further to the downside for interaction with the significant horizontal level at $0.29405 where it found support as the price increased from there quickly leaving a wick on the hourly candle. Today, the price attempted to move to back to the 0.236 Fibonacci level but no interaction has been seen which can change later today if the price starts increasing again after a minor recovery.
The $0.29405 level is a highly significant support level but the price could retest the lower one at $0.26617 if we haven't seen the completion of the third ABC to the downside. Prior to a breakout below the 0.236 Fib level, we have seen a five-wave impulse which is why the next move which was a retest of the 0.382 Fib level was considered as the B wave. But as the C wave is usually the equal or longer size than the A wave, further downside movement could be seen before its completion.

Litecoin (LTC/USD) Forecast
1 LTC/USD =$98.6877 change ~ -1.97%
From yesterday's high at $92.5 the price of Litecoin decreased today and came to $88.6 spiking even further down to $87.335 at its lowest point today. The price is currently being traded at $89.264 and is consolidating in a minor horizontal range. On the hourly chart, you can see that the price found support on the significant horizontal zone as it decreased impulsively to the downside which means that the support zone is serving as a strong one. The price has started recovering from yesterday's low at around $86.5 and came up by 6.59% after but the increase ended shortly which indicates that the buyers are showing much interest at this point.
The price is currently sitting on the minor horizontal support level from the first recovery wave which could be viewed as the first wave to the upside from the starting impulse. If the price starts moving below the level a decrease below the support zone or at least a retest of its lower level would look likely as in that case we haven't seen the completion of the 5th wave from the ABC correction.
But if the price manages to stay above the support zone before showing signs of strong buyers presence we could start to consider that the complex correction ended. For now, there aren't any signs of a reversal which is why I think that more likely we are to see another downfall from here in a sharp manner potentially leaving wick on the hourly chart as the price spikes back up above the support range again.
This spike to the downside would enter the buyer's territory which would activate buying and the momentum would, in that case, get caught for the needed trend reversal.
All of Today's Litecoin (LTC) Price Analysis, Chart Forecasts and Industry News
The cryptocurrency market has ended its impulsive decrease yesterday and since then attempted to recover with the prices of the major cryptos being in the green.
There isn’t still any signs of a reversal coming as we haven’t seen strong bullish momentum getting traction. We could see further downfall before the start of the significant recovery with the price headed for another sharp decrease which would be left as a spike to the downside entering the buyer's territory.
Another possibility would be that we are seeing consolidation in a horizontal range after a decrease which would result in a impulsive increase after its completion.
