Cointelegraph reported earlier that Bitcoin is attempting to bounce from the trendline of the symmetrical triangle, and if the BTC/U.S. dollar pair picks up momentum above the moving averages and breaks out of the downtrend line, it can result in a retest of the yearly highs at $13,973.50. 

The most popular altcoin Ether (ETH) is picking up momentum as well and is trading at $178.53, up more than 4.5% on the day.

Like most cryptocurrencies, Ripple’s XRP token has been trading steadily throughout the week, and is now showing a gain of just over 2%. At press time the coin is trading at $0.260.

XRP has been a major underperformer among major cryptocurrencies in 2019. One of the most likely reasons for the underperformance is the consistent selling of XRP tokens by its founders.
