ADA, BNB, SOL, DOGE, and XRP price

Cardano (ADA) is up almost 4.5% and is trading near the USD 0.88 resistance. The main barrier is near the USD 0.90 level. A close above USD 0.90 could set the pace for a larger increase.

It gained 16% in a day and settled near the USD 0.160 level after reaching almost USD 0.168 on Monday. Any more gains may perhaps send the price towards the USD 0.170 level again.

XRP price is struggling to rise towards the USD 0.70 resistance. To start a steady increase, the price must settle above USD 0.70. On the downside, the USD 0.65 level is a decent support.
