Cryptos consolidate before breaking out in 2022
Written by publisher team

  • Bitcoin price continues to trade in a range that has continued throughout the month of December.
  • Ethereum price is waiting to enter an explosive move up.
  • The price of XRP is starting to cause a short squeeze, likely to drive the major coins in early 2022.

Bitcoin price recently caused a long-term theoretical entry; This indicates that the upside potential is still strong. Ethereum price put up over 50%. XRP price is still under pressure from both technical and fundamental factors – but that is about to change.

Bitcoin Price Continues To Crowd, Breakout Soon

Bitcoin price action has been stuck between the $46,000 and $50,000 value areas for the entire month of December. While the daily candlestick chart shows a downside continuation setup in the form of a bear flag, the dot and figure chart shows something a bit different.

More recent analysis has identified a pole pattern on the Bitcoin reversal point and figure chart at $500/3 squares. The theoretical long setup for the bitcoin price was a buy stop on a 3-box reversal, which resulted in $48,500. The stop loss is 4 stop boxes, currently at $46,500, and the profit target is $63,000. The default trade setup is a 7.25:1 reward for the risk setup, with an implied profit target of 30.5% above the entry level.

The trade setup is still in effect as Bitcoin is back below the entry level, allowing traders to enter a new position they lost or add to an existing long position. New positions should use a two to three box trailing stop to protect any profit made after the entry is started.

The downside risks to the bitcoin price remain. This time of year is famous for swings and binaries in price action. Watch for any movement below the $46,000 value area, which could lead to a quick crash into the lower $30,000 price range.

Ethereum price set to reach $6000

Ethereum price is waiting for a clear breakout to reach a critical entry area set on December 30th. The default trade setting is still valid.

The default entry for the Ethereum price is a buy stop order at $4,000, a stop loss at $3,500, and a profit target at $6,000. This trade represents 5:1 risk to reward and 52% implied gain from entry. A trailing two to three box trailing stop will help protect any potential profit after the entry has started.

This trade setup is invalidated if the Ethereum price moves to $3,300. Ethereum is likely to see a bearish setup to target the $2800 area in this scenario.

XRP price is developing a bullish reversal pattern, trapping short sellers

XRP’s price action, more so than Bitcoin or Ethereum, will give weak hands and cash. The spike pattern completed recently on the $0.01/3-squares reversal chart in XRP. The requirement to enter the spike pattern is simple: a three-box reversal.

A possible long setup for the XRP price is the buy stop at $0.85, the stop loss at $0.81 and the profit target at $1.10. This trade represents a 6.25:1 reward on risk with an implied 30% profit from the entry. A trailing stop loss of two to three boxes will help protect any implied profits made after entering.

Traders should expect resistance at the $1.00 value area and be prepared for the momentum to take in XRP price through $1.00 as it was heavily tested during December.
