February 4th Technical Analysis: ETH, XRP, SOL, BNB and LUNA
Technical analysis of the ETH
ETH has had a very good week, up nearly 17%. Today the price broke the key resistance at $2,800 and seems poised to move to the next target of $3,000. The latest move higher comes after ETH retested the key $2,500 support yesterday.
This price action ends the correction and brings some optimism to the market. The key question now is whether ETH can currently break the $3,000 resistance level. A break above this level would solidify the recent up move and open the door for a substantial recovery.
However, the volume in the last push is not too impressive. If the price moves higher, the momentum must be even more intense. Otherwise, the price could be rejected by sellers at the critical resistance level. The next week will be crucial as to where ETH moves next.

XRP Technical Analysis
Last week, XRP tended to move sideways and lacked momentum to break out of the current range. Resistance at $0.65 combined with support at $0.58 is keeping the price in check and blocking any bull or bear breakout attempt.
The recent attempt to break below the key support has failed and the bulls have regained control of the price but cannot seem to push XRP above the “heavy dollar” resistance. Because of this, XRP is up just 0.6% in the last 7 days.
At press time, XRP is lacking momentum and volume appears flat. Therefore, it is difficult to take any significant action in the near future. If BTC and ETH break out strongly, XRP could try to break out of the range in the next week. Otherwise, a continuation of the sideways trend is to be expected.

SOL Technical Analysis
SOL had a good week and also broke the $100 level which was the main resistance for the past 7 days. Now the price is consolidating just above this level to end the week with an impressive 17% gain.
The biggest challenge SOL faces right now is whether it can rally to the next key resistance at $130? Price action now and support indicators continue to move towards this key level but a break above it seems unlikely (at press time).
Going forward, SOL is well positioned to erase losses from the recent correction and current volume favors the bullish side of the market. The longer such positive momentum is sustained, the more likely the cryptocurrency seems poised to move higher.

BNB Technical Analysis
After BNB dipped below $400, the price finally found support at $335. This threshold has so far prevented Binance’s cryptocurrency from falling lower. Over the past week, BNB lost 4% of its value.
Currently, BNB is consolidating and could attempt a rally next week towards the key resistance at $418. Reconfirming this level will be crucial if BNB is to surge higher in the future. On the other hand, failure means merging for even longer.
Indicators are favoring the bulls at the moment, but the trend may be tested soon if the price moves towards the key resistance. Anyway, given the recent price action, there is little chance for BNB to drop low and an uptrend seems more likely in the week ahead.

LUNA technical analysis
LUNA’s downtrend ended last week when the price found support around $45. Now, the 10th-ranked cryptocurrency is hovering below the critical resistance at $54, which has prevented the price from moving higher for the past few days. Overall, LUNA’s weekly performance was poor, down 7.7%.
Indicators have yet to turn bullish and it seems likely that LUNA will consolidate below this key resistance. However, the RSI is making higher lows on the intraday period and the MACD could form a bullish crossover if the price action holds up for the next few days.
Looking further, LUNA is likely to attempt a break above the $54 level which will result in an uptrend if successful. However, current volume is weak and unlikely to break out at this point. LUNA may need a few more days of consolidation before attempting a breakout.
