Bitcoin is retracing the last bullish candlestick on low volume. The price is currently touching the confluence of the descending trendline and the Bollinger mean line. BTC price seems to suffer more from lack of buyers than an excess of sellers, given the low volume of the current price action. Since the price is in the upper side of the Bollinger bands and the MACD has returned to the positive side, we think BTC has room for more upside.
Key supports: $10,111, $10,000 and $9,900
Closest resistances: $10,200, $10270 and $10,425
Ripple has been oscillating in a corrective movement, after its sharp ascent. As predicted, the price has been supported by the Bollinger band mean line. The MACD is still pointing to more corrective action, though. The overall outlook is still bullish above $0.2854.

Closest resistances: = $0.3, $0.35 and $0.31
Ethereum price action is consistently bullish. The last time it has retraced the price found support in the Bollinger mean line. Currently is giving part of its advance due to profit-taking but the price action and the technicals are consistent with a bullish trend. The volume seems to confirm that as it has a higher volume on bullish candles than on bearish ones.
Supports: $216, $211,5 and $208
Resistances: $219, 2$22
Litecoin is following the path of Ethereum, and the current price is held by the Bollinger mean line. The Volume indicates that the upward movement is not as strong as in the Ethereum case. That said the price is still making higher lows above the trendline, so we keep our outlook bullish.

Supports: $74, $72
Resistances: $76, $77.26, $79
Dash is moving in a very steep uptrend. The price has significant advances in a few days, starting from $80 and coming up to touch the $100 level.

Resistances: $98.3, $100 and $101.5
