Total market capitalization
After testing the USD 7,500 support, bitcoin price started a strong rebound. BTC/USD climbed above the USD 7,700 and USD 7,800 resistance levels. The price even tested the USD 7,950 resistance area, but it failed to continue higher. BTC is up more than 4%, but it must break the USD 7,950 and USD 8,000 resistance levels to move further higher.
If it fails to continue higher, there could be a fresh downward move below the USD 7,800 support. The next key support is at USD 7,720, below which the price is likely to revisit the USD 7,500 support area.
Ethereum price declined below the USD 242 support and tested the USD 230 support zone. Recently, ETH/USD recovered above USD 242 and USD 245. However, the price is facing a strong resistance near the USD 250 level.
A clear break above the USD 250 level is needed for bullish continuation. On the downside, the USD 242 level is likely to act as a decent support.
Bitcoin cash, eos and ripple price
Bitcoin cash price rallied after testing the USD 375 support level. BCH/USD is up more than 9% and it is currently trading above the USD 400 level. The next key resistance is near the USD 415 level, above which the price could accelerate above the USD 420 level.
EOS also started a strong upward move after it tested the USD 5.80 support level. It is up more than 8% and broke the USD 6.00 and USD 6.15 resistance levels. The bulls are in control and the price may continue to rise towards USD 6.40.
Ripple price bounced back sharply after testing the USD 0.360 support area. XRP/USD is currently up 6% and it is trading above the USD 0.380 level. On the upside, there are many resistances near the USD 0.390, USD 0.392 and USD 0.400 levels.
