Bitcoin (BTC), Ripple (XRP) Weekly Technical Analysis
After the mixed sessions last week, digital currencies will have to avoid the week’s critical level for breakout support this week.
The week that ended on 22 August saw BTC-USD rising by 4.77%. The leading coin ended its week at around $49,266 after gaining 7.4% over the previous week.
Meanwhile, unpredictable sessions at the start of the week saw the crypto climbing to $48,069 Monday high before reversing.
Meanwhile, failure to overcome the initial resistance at $49,179 saw the coin sliding to intraweek lows of $43,992.
However, keeping away the $43,828 initial support had BTC rallying intraweek high at $49,788 on Saturday. However, catalysts emerged for slight reverses.
The bullish sentiment saw BTC riding the green in four days, including a 4.57% surge on Thursday and Friday’s 5.49% uptrends.
BTC Week Ahead
For now, BTC has to prevent the $47,682 pivot for support past the $51,372 massive resistance.
The broader market backing is essential for the leading cryptocurrency to overpower the 23.6% Fibonacci of $50,473.
Excluding continuous market rally will confirm the initial resistance, preventing upside surges.
However, an extended market rally might see Bitcoin testing the resistance level near $55,000 before pullbacks surface. The crypto’s 2nd resistance locates at $53,478.
Meanwhile, losing the $47,682 pivot will have Bitcoin at its initial support near $45,576.
