Bitcoin Cash

Technically, Bitcoin Cash is steadily down-trending. After the previous support line breakout the price went down, with the distance being equal to the previous channel. Currently, the trend is successfully testing the projection channel support, and the price is very likely to break out and reach the next projection channel support at 1,100. After that, the price may bounce up to the resistance at 1,936. This technical scenario shows that the current Bitcoin Cash price cycle may be over, and a new bullish phase may begin soon. This is also true for many other top cryptocurrencies.

Ethereum

On H4, Ethereum price is clearly reverting its uptrend to a downtrend. First, this was signaled by consolidation, and then the price broke out the uptrend support. Currently, Ether is trading near the first downtrend target, which is located at the projection channel support (61.80% Fibo retracement). In case this support is broken out, the price may well go down to reach $697 (78.60% Fibo), which would be followed by a correction towards the resistance ($1,000). Next, the price is likely to test $697 once again, break it out and go down to $500.

NEM

Technically, NEM is experiencing a steady downtrend, while the market is testing the current channel support at $0.72. Most likely, the price is then going to bounce up to reach the resistance at around $1.05. In case of the resistance breakout and the price remaining high, a new bullish trend may appear, with the price testing existing important highs and forming new ones. Conversely, as long as the support is broken out, the price may go down to $0.12, switching then to range trading.
