Bitcoin is forming a reversal model on small time-frames; if it forms successfully, we will soon see a breakthrough of another maximum and continuation of the bullish trend.

The quotation BTC/USD itself keeps moving in the ascending channel. As the main trading idea another test of the lower border of the ascending channel around 11,275 USD, followed by growth, should be expected.
Next step will be a breakthrough of the upper border of the channel and securing above 15,000 USD.
In this case a test of the level around 20,000 USD and rigorous development of the bullish trend are highly probable.

Ethereum remains inside the ascending channel. What is more, buyers managed to remain above the important support level.
One strong signal of further growth is another test of the support line on RSI. It is a second test, as we may see, so growth from the current levels is to be expected.
The first goal of the ascending trend will be the area around 385.00 USD. The scenario will no longer be valid if the currency falls below 261.00 USD, which will mean exiting the ascending channel and further decline with the goal at 177.00 USD.

If the lower border of the model is broken through and trading closes above 5.30 USD, the currency is likely to keep falling to 4.38 USD.

The quotations are locked inside the ascending channel, which, all in all, signifies a potential for further growth.

The growth will be confirmed if the resistance line is broken through and the currency secures above 126.00 USD.
