Total market capitalization
After a significant pause below USD 57,000, Bitcoin price prolonged its decline. BTC even fell below $ 56,200, but the bulls were able to protect the key support zone of $ 55,500. The price is now recovering and trading above USD 56,000. Initial resistance is near the USD 57,000 level. The key resistance to a steady rise is now forming near the $ 57,200 level.
On the downside, the $ 56,000 level is a short-term support. Main support is now at $ 55,500 below which the bears could gain strength.
The Ethereum price also followed Bitcoin, breaking the all-important USD 2,000 support. ETH was trading close to the USD 1,930 support and is now correcting higher. There has been a break above USD 1,980 but the bulls face many hurdles. The first major resistance is at USD 2,020, followed by USD 2,050.
On the flip side, USD 1,950 and USD 1,940 are decent support levels. Further losses could require a decline below USD 1,900.
BNB, ADA, Litecoin and XRP prices
Binance Coin (BNB) has made up losses and is back above the USD 380 level. The BNB is testing the USD 395 resistance, but the key breakout zone is close to USD 400. A successful close above USD 400 may potentially die Increase likelihood of rebound towards USD 425.
