Bitcoin (BTC/USD) added 0.6% on Saturday but struggled to gather further bullish momentum and reversed its direction on Sunday. As of writing, the pair was down 0.8% on the day at $9,235. After registering an impressive 16% increase last week, the pair remains on track to erase more than 3% this week.

Reflecting the neutral outlook, the Relative Strength Index (RSI) on the daily chart is edging lower toward the 50 mark. On the upside, the pair could face the initial resistance at $10,000 (psychological level/Fibonacci 61.8% retracement of June rally/October 28th high) ahead of $10,540 (October 26th high) and $10,750 (Fibonacci 50% retracement of June rally). Supports, on the other hand, are located at $9,070 (200-day MA), $8,500 (20-day MA) and $7,350 (October 24th low).

Ethereum (ETH/USD) continues to move up and down in an extremely narrow band near $180 for the second straight day on Sunday and waits for the next significant driver. On the weekly chart, the pair looks to close flat. With a decisive break above $200 (October 26th high/psychological level), the pair could target $210/$215 (200-day MA/20-week MA). $178 (20-day MA) aligns as the first near-term support followed by $160 (October 25th low) and $150 (September 26th, October 23rd low).

Ripple (XRP/USD), the third-largest cryptocurrency with a market capitalization of $12.7 billion, is down more than 2% on a weekly basis and is likely to snap its four-week winning streak. As of writing, the pair was down 1% on the day at $0.2923. The initial hurdle for the pair is located at $0.3 (psychological level) before $0.3150 (October 26th high) and $0.3265 (200-day MA). On the downside, supports could be seen at  $0.2860 (November 1st low) and  $0.2750 (Fibonacci 61.8% retracement of the fall September 18-24 drop).
