Total market capitalization
After a short-term downside correction, bitcoin price found support near the USD 11,350 level. BTC climbed higher, but it seems like the bulls are struggling to gain strength above USD 11,550. A successful close above USD 11,550 might lead the price further higher towards USD 11,700. The next major resistance is near the USD 11,800 level.
On the downside, the USD 11,300 level is a decent support zone. The first major support is near the USD 11,200, below the price might revisit the USD 11,000 support.
Ethereum price remained well bid above USD 370 and USD 375. ETH regained strength and climbed above USD 385. The current price action is positive, but the price might face hurdles near USD 390 and USD 392. A clear break above USD 392 might increase the chances of more upsides.
