Investing in cryptocurrency is getting easier for traditional investors.

Another example of the growing adoption of cryptocurrency is the recent announcement of the Austrian payment processor Salamantex that over 2,500 merchants in the country will be able to accept three different crypto assets via their system.

Now let's have a look at the charts of the major cryptocurrencies against the еuro.
In the monthly time frame (MN), a candlestick that resembles a «Shooting Star» pattern formed in June:
Theoretically, a «Shooting Star» is interpreted as a type of reversal pattern presaging a falling price.
However, the shorter time frames still don't confirm this bearish signal. For example, in the 4-hour time frame (4H), the price chart of BTC/EUR is consolidating and there is still no 'sell' signal:
If the bulls are able to regain control over the market, then BTC/EUR may rebound to the upper bound of the consolidation range – a level close to €9,000 per one digital coin. However, if the bulls cannot defend the lower bound of the consolidation range, then the bears may sink the price below the level of €7,800, and thus a downtrend may start.
In the 4-hour chart (4H), ETH/EUR is still fluctuating within an «Ascending Channel» (uptrend):
However, as shown in the chart above, the trajectory of the «Ascending Channel» is changing, thus the uptrend is slowing.
If the bulls start to buy Ethereum at the current level (a level close to the lower line of the channel), then the uptrend will resume very soon, and ETH/EUR may reach €225 again.
Conversely, if the bears push the price below the lower line of the channel, then the price of Ethereum may drop to €180.
The daily chart (1D) shows that the LTC/EUR is hovering near the 30-day Moving Average (MA 30) and the 90-day Moving Average (MA 90):
It is worth mentioning that both MAs are still moving sideways. That's why we think the price of Litecoin will continue to consolidate.
