The Bitcoin Chart: Bitcoin has been trading mostly sideways since May 12 and on Thursday, the crypto fell to the $25,864 mark and bounced up from the level. The price action caused Bitcoin to print a bullish double bottom pattern when paired to similar price action on May 12.
On Friday, Bitcoin was reacting to the pattern and bouncing up above Thursday’s high-of-day, but the crypto rejected an upper descending trend line, which has been holding it down since May 6. If Bitcoin can break through the trend line, a longer-term reversal to the upside could be on the horizon.
Bitcoin has resistance above at $27,133 and $28,690 and support below at $25,772 and $25,288
The Ethereum Chart: Like Bitcoin, Ethereum is trading under a descending trend line, which has been holding the crypto down since May 6. Ethereum also rejected the area during Friday’s session, but if the crypto can break above the trend line, a big reversal could be on deck.
If Ethereum is unable to break through the trend line, it may continue to push the crypto lower. If that happens, bullish traders want to see Ethereum hold above $1,737 or a longer-term downtrend could be on the horizon.
Ethereum has resistance above at $1,846 and $1,957 and support below at $1,717 and $1,564.
The Dogecoin Chart: Dogecoin is also trading under a descending trendline, which has been forcing the crypto lower since April 3. Like Bitcoin, Dogecoin formed a double bottom pattern on May 11 and May 25 near 7 cents and was attempting to break higher on Friday.
Bullish traders want to see big bullish volume come in and break Dogecoin above the trend line. Bearish traders want to see big bearish volume come in and push the crypto under the 7-cent mark, which could signal a downtrend is in the cards.
Dogecoin has resistance above at $0.075 and $0.083 and support below at $0.069 and $0.065.
