Bitcoin price is at that point where investors are anticipating the retest of its all-time high and perhaps an entry into the price discovery mode. While this development is likely, market participants need to wait for BTC to flip a significant hurdle to mark the start of a new uptrend.
Bitcoin price rose roughly 40% over the past ten days and is currently hovering just above the 79% Fibonacci retracement level at $57,269. Although this hurdle is critical, it is not as significant as the $58,000 to $60,000 area.
Clearing this zone will put the majority of the holders in profit and alleviate the short-term sell-side pressure. Such a development will set the stage for a run-up that retests the all-time high at $64,895.
If BTC continues to rally past its all-time high, investors can expect BTC to head toward the next psychological level at $77,525 or the 161.8% Fibonacci extension level.

On the other hand, if Bitcoin price fails to slice through $60,000, it needs to at the very least hold above the $55,000 support floor. Failing to do so could result in a retracement to $54,182. A breakdown of which could delay the bullish outlook and trigger a further descent to $51,096.
Ethereum price seems to be more correlated with the rest of the altcoins than Bitcoin as it consolidates in a tight space. Over the past nine days, ETH has remained between $3,398 and $3,619.
BTC has rallied over 20% during this period, suggesting that investors are more interested in the big crypto than ETH. This development also indicates that the holders are rotating their capital from altcoins and into BTC.
As long as ETH stays above the $3,200 to $3,000 barrier, things will be fine. Investors can expect a short-term retracement before ETH kick-starts its bull rally.

Regardless of the capital rotation, if Ethereum price fails to hold above the $3,000 psychological level, it will indicate that market participants are losing interest and are likely to sell, pushing ETH lower.
This move will invalidate the bullish thesis and could lead to a retest of $2,765.
Ripple price showed a strong surge on October 9 as it rallied 16% and set up a local top at $1.23. However, things reversed as investors started booking profits and BTC started gaining more demand.
As long as investors prefer the bellwether crypto, XRP price and other altcoin market structures will either show a coiling up phase or enter a corrective period.
In the meantime, investors can expect the XRP price to retrace to the October 8 swing low at $1.046 or the support floor at $1.01. However, a bounce at or before $1.01 could give rise to a rally that will likely push XRP price to $1.267.

While things are looking moderately well for Ripple price, a breakdown of the $1.01 barrier will indicate a weakness among altcoins. In that situation, XRP price might revisit $0.964, a breakdown of which will create a lower low and invalidate the bullish thesis.

Bitcoin (BTC) price is in a tight spot, and subject to some ferocious moves in markets where every asset class has seen outflows of money. Unfortunately, risk assets like cryptocurrencies and stocks have sold off more than bonds and commodities, with only one victory in the forex market: the US dollar.
Ethereum price prediction continues to be a high-risk activity as the second-biggest cryptocurrency continues to fall. ETH price dropped to $1,100 during the Asian trading session on Tuesday and has since bounced back to levels around $1,200 in the European session. 
XRP price is showing strength as it bounces off a stable support level in line with an uptick in bullish momentum and recovery in Bitcoin price. Investors need to tread carefully, however, as the crypto markets are on the precipice of a capitulation move.
Cardano (ADA) price is set to book a solid intraday rally which makes one wonder if ADA traders are aware of what is happening in the markets. With global markets rattled and coiled by inflation worries and several asset classes on the back foot.
BTC is at a point in its journey through the bear market where investors are split into camps that are expecting a relief rally, a continuation of the crash and a full-blown bull rally. Interestingly, none of the aforementioned theses is wrong per se.
