Crypto Price Analysis August 26: Ethereum, Cardano, Ripple, Binance Coin, & Solana

In today’s overview, we take a closer look at Ethereum, Cardano, Ripple, Binance Coin, and Solana.

Ethereum

Ethereum might be down 9.1% this week, but it’s recovering well from the latest collapse. The cryptocurrency fell from above $1,800 last Friday and continued to decline during the weekend until it found support at the 50-day MA level.

It rebounded from the 50-day MA and started to climb throughout the week. Yesterday, it found resistance at the 20-day MA level and the July 2021 lows around $1,700. Today, it continues to battle with this resistance.

If ETH breaks $1,700, resistance is expected at $1,800, $2,000, and $2,200 (200-day MA).

On the other side, support is first located at $1,600 (50-day MA). This is followed by $1,510 (March 2021 lows), $1,400 (rising trend line), and $1,280 (Feb 2021 lows).

Cardano

ADA is down by 7.8% this week as it trades around $0.475. Last week’s price drop caused ADA to fall beneath a rising trend line and break beneath the 100-day MA. It continued to decline until support was found at $0.436 over the weekend.

Since then, ADA traded inside a range between $0.436 and $0.47 throughout the week. However, today’s 3% price hike allowed it to break this range as it trades above $0.47.

Today, XRP witnessed a 3% surge that allowed it to reach $0.36. In fact, XRP pushed as high as $0.371 today but retreated as it struggled with the 50/100-day MA levels at $0.36.

It found support there and started to rally over the weekend but found resistance at the 20-day MA at around $300 on Monday and has still not managed to produce a daily closing candle above the level.

SOL is down by a strong 11% on the week and it battles to stay above support at around $35. SOL managed to set a fresh 2-month-high at the start of August, allowing it to reach as high as $48. However, it quickly rolled over from this resistance and started to fall.

Last week’s crypto price plummet caused SOL to drop beneath the 50-day MA and fall beneath $36. It continued lower until support was found at $34.35, provided by a .618 Fib Retracement. SOL held this support all week but struggled to overcome $36.

Looking ahead, if the bears push beneath $34.35, the first support lies at $32.50 (August 2021 lows). This is followed by $30, $28, and $25.75.
