On the upside, the bulls are facing resistance near the USD 44,000 level. A clear move above the USD 44,000 level could send the price towards the USD 45,000 resistance in the near term.
On the downside, an immediate support is near the USD 43,200 level. The next major support is near USD 43,000, below which the price might resume decline.
Ethereum price is moving lower again after briefly surpassing the USD 3,300 level. The price is almost unchanged in a day. If it resumes its upward move, the next key resistance might be near the USD 3,320 level, above which the price could rise towards USD 3,400.
If there is a fresh decline, the price might find support near USD 3,220. The next major support is near the USD 3,200 level, below which the price may perhaps revisit USD 3,150.
ADA, BNB, SOL, DOGE, and XRP price
Cardano (ADA) is consolidating below the USD 1.10 resistance level. The main resistance is now forming near the USD 1.12 level, above which the price might move into a positive zone.
BNB is consolidating near the USD 430 level. If there is a clear move above the USD 432 level, the price could even surpass USD 435. The next key resistance is near the USD 440 level.
Solana (SOL) struggled to stay above the USD 120 level and it is now testing the USD 115 support. Any additional losses may perhaps call for a move towards the USD 105 level.
DOGE failed to gain strength above the USD 0.150 resistance. It seems like there might be a minor decline below USD 0.145. However, the USD 0.142 level is a major support zone.
XRP price is facing a major hurdle near the USD 0.80 resistance. A close above the USD 0.80 could set the pace for a steady increase. If not, the price might drop to USD 0.75.
