Ripple caused a sensation today in the cryptocurrency segment, as the third largest coin jumped more than 15% after trading in a narrow range for several days. Most of the major currencies joined the rally, but gains were eased and the technical configuration remained unchanged in most cases, with long-term prospects still bearish, while the short-term picture remains mixed.
Ethereum, which has been at the center of trends in the segment for weeks doubled to above $ 200, but has remained below the peak of recent swing, leaving several unanswered questions about the short-term trend term. Bitcoin is still stuck close to the $ 6275 level, and the total market value is still below $ 200 billion, with no clear signs of significant capital inflows in the segment.
ETH / USD, Analysis of the 4-hour chart
Ethereum quickly recovered over $ 200 after placing below the weekend lows yesterday in late trading, keeping the short-term purchase signal in our model of trend. That said, the currency has yet to show a strong bullish momentum to avoid a recovery of the long-term declining trend. As a sustained dip below $ 200 should still warn of a move to last week's lows, while a move above $ 235 will pave the way to $ 260 and confluence resistance near $ 275.
BTC / USD, analysis of the 4-hour chart
Bitcoin showed weakness over the last two days, and although the currency is still present on a short-term purchase signal, similar to Ethereum, a quick recovery above $ 6500 It would be necessary to avoid a bearish turn.
Traders should keep their positions here, but given the segmental trends that are still bearish, we still do not recommend full positions even in the strongest currencies. Below $ 6275, weaker support stands at $ 6,000, near the key long-term zone near $ 5850, while resistance is ahead at $ 6500, $ 6750 and $ 7,000.

DASH / USD, 4-hour chart analysis
Dash is among the strongest from a short-term technical point of view, trading a bullish consolidation model just below the key $ 200 level. , the currency failed to show strength today during the Ripple demonstration, and this still indicates a dominant bearish trend in the segment. With this in mind, traders should expect further positive signals before entering new positions, especially as no bullish leadership has yet been developed.
IOT / USD, 4-hour chart analysis
IOTA is still weaker than average, along with NEO, EOS and ETC, and the currency is still just above the August lows, clearly in a broad bearish trend, despite holding above the lower limit of its short-term range. A lows test is likely in the coming weeks, and the currency remains on the sell signals on both time frames, with support found between $ 0.455 and $ 0.475 and close to $ 0.405, and with key resistance ahead of $ 0.57 and $ 0.64.
