After Bitcoin (BTC) scaled above $10,000 the mood amongst market members turned massively bullish. Every day talks of the asset making new highs blanketed crypto Twitter and this bullish sentiment also rubbed off on altcoins which picked up momentum and rallied sharply prior to now few days. Because the week approached an in depth it was clear that the crypto market was wanting overheated in the short-term as greed gripped the market individuals. 

Such a state of affairs often leads to a sharp pullback that scares the weak palms away. Led by Bitcoin, the crypto markets have slipped sharply up to now two days. The entire crypto market capitalization that had surged to over $308 billion on Feb. 15 dropped to about $274 billion on Feb. 17. This exhibits profit reserving by the short-term traders.

Nevertheless,  the long-term development in most main cryptocurrencies stays intact. Subsequently, we propose merchants view this current fall as a shopping for alternative. Nonetheless, we advocate traders watch for the decline to finish before jumping in.

The long-term Bitcoin bulls are unfazed by the present drop. Celebrated TV host Max Keiser has revised his goal on Bitcoin from $100,000 to $400,000. Though we're also bullish in the long-term, let’s see what does the short-term venture?

BTC/USD

The failure to sustain above the overhead resistance at $10,360.89 has attracted profit booking by the short-term merchants. Although Bitcoin (BTC) bounced off the 20-day EMA at $9,700 on Feb. 16, the bulls couldn't build up on the rebound. This exhibits promoting at larger ranges.

At present, the bears are trying to sink the worth under the 20-day EMA. If successful, the BTC/USD pair can drop to the subsequent help at $9,097.15. We anticipate the bulls to defend this help aggressively. 

The 20-day EMA is flattening out and the RSI has dipped close to the midpoint. This means a range-bound motion in the near-term. 

On the downside, a drop under the $9,097.15-$8,820 help zone will flip the development in favor of the bears. For now, the merchants can maintain the cease loss on the remaining long positions at $8,900. 

ETH/USD

Ether (ETH) turned down from $288.599 on Feb. 15, which was very near our first target goal of $289.221. The sharp pullback has dragged the worth back to the breakout degree of $235.70. Though the worth rebounded sharply from $235.70 on Feb. 16, the bulls haven't been capable of build up on the bounce. This exhibits that sellers are lively at greater levels.

Presently, the bulls are again trying to defend the help at $235.70. If profitable, the ETH/USD pair may try and resume the up transfer. Nevertheless, if the bears sink the worth under $235.70, the 20-day EMA at $229 may act as a help.

A break under the 20-day EMA can be a destructive sign and it could possibly drag the worth to the subsequent help at $197.75. The merchants can path the cease loss on the remaining long positions to $220. 

XRP/USD

XRP could not maintain above the resistance at $zero.34229 on Feb. 15. The failure to do so attracted revenue booking that dragged the worth under the 20-day EMA, which is a damaging sign. If the bears sink the worth under $0.26362, the drop can prolong to the 50-day SMA.

Nevertheless, if the worth stays above $0.26362, the bulls will once more try to carry the worth to $zero.34229. We anticipate a number of days of consolidation between $0.26362 and $0.34229 earlier than the XRP/USD pair starts a trending move. For now, the traders can hold the stop loss on the long positions at $0.26. 

BCH/USD

Bitcoin Money (BCH) reversed path from near the stiff resistance at $500. The sharp correction dragged the worth under the ascending channel. This breaks the uptrend that was in pressure.

BCH USD day by day chart. Supply: Tradingview

Presently, the bulls are trying to hold the breakout degree at $360. If this help holds, the BCH/USD pair may rise to the 20-day EMA, which might act as a resistance. After the risky action of the previous few days, we anticipate a number of days of consolidation.

Our view can be negated if the bears sink the worth under the help at $360 and the 50-day SMA at $343. If this help cracks the decline can prolong to $306.78.

BSV/USD

Bitcoin SV (BSV) dipped under the important help at $337.80 on Feb. 15. This triggered additional selling that dragged the worth to the 50-day SMA at $243. Presently, the worth has bounced off sharply from the 50-day SMA.

If the worth rises above the 20-day EMA, the subsequent degree to watch out for is $337.80. We anticipate a range-bound motion between $236 and $337.8 for a number of days.

Our view will probably be invalidated if the BSV/USD pair worth turns down from the 20-day EMA and breaks under $236. Under this degree, the subsequent degree to be careful for is  $173.66. 

LTC/USD

Although Litecoin (LTC) closed (UTC time) above $80.2731 on Feb. 14, the bulls could not construct up on it. This attracted promoting, which plunged the worth under the 20-day EMA on Feb. 16. Although the worth rebounded off the 20-day EMA, the bulls couldn't carry it above $80.2731.

Presently, the bulls are trying to defend the help at $66.1486. If successful, the LTC/USD pair may remain range-bound between $66.1486-$80.2731 for the subsequent few days.

The pair will decide up momentum on a break above $85, whereas a drop under $66.1486 will turn the development in favor of the bears. We'd recommend lengthy positions if the rebound off $66.1486 sustains.

EOS/USD

We had suggested the potential for a pullback in EOS as the RSI was within the deeply overbought territory. Nevertheless, we had expected the worth to seek out help between $four.8719 and the 20-day EMA at $four.58.

EOS USD day by day chart. Supply: Tradingview

Opposite to our assumption, the pullback was sharp as it plunged under the help at $four.24. At present, the bulls are trying a rebound off $4. 

If profitable, the EOS/USD pair may consolidate between $4 and $four.8719 for a couple of days. The development will flip destructive on a break under the 50-day SMA at $three.80. We do not find any reliable buy setups at the current ranges, hence, we advise traders remain on the sidelines.

BNB/USD

Binance Coin (BNB) plummeted under the help at $23.5213 and reached the subsequent help at $21.80 on Feb. 16. Though the worth rebounded sharply from $21.80, the bulls could not carry it above $23.5213, which exhibits promoting at larger levels.

At present, the BNB/USD pair has once more bounced off the help at $21.80. We anticipate the bulls to make another attempt to carry the worth above $23.5213. If profitable, a transfer to $27.1905 is probably going.

Conversely, if the worth turns down from $23.5213, the bears will make one other try and sink the worth under $18.26. For now, the traders can maintain the cease loss on the long positions at $21.

XTZ/USD

The bulls did not push Tezos (XTZ) above the overhead resistance at $5.5989 on Feb. 14 and 15. That resulted in revenue booking that dragged the worth to only under $2.7809234 ranges, which corresponds to 38.2% Fibonacci retracement degree of this leg of the rally.

On Feb. 16, the worth bounced sharply from $2.752 levels but the bulls couldn't maintain the upper ranges. This exhibits that the sellers are back in motion.

Presently, the bears are trying to sink the worth under $2.7809234. If profitable, a drop to the 20-day EMA at $2.59 is feasible. This is close to the 50% retracement degree of the current rally, hence, we anticipate the bulls to defend this degree aggressively. We'll await the XTZ/USD pair to cease falling earlier than suggesting a trade in it.

ADA/USD

Cardano (ADA) turned down sharply on Feb. 15 and plunged under the earlier resistance turned help of $0.65229. Selling continued on the subsequent day and it dragged the worth to the subsequent help at $zero.zero560221.

This fall triggered our steered cease loss on the remaining long positions at $0.06. Presently the bears are trying to sink the worth under $0.0560221. If successful, the drop can prolong to the 50-day SMA at $0.048. 

Conversely, if the ADA/USD pair holds above $zero.560221, the bulls will once more attempt to carry the worth above $0.065229. We'll anticipate the worth to stop falling and recommend a turnaround before proposing a trade in it.
