On the upside, an initial resistance is near the USD 1,980 level. The main breakout resistance is now forming near USD 2,000, above which the price could accelerate.
ADA, BNB, SOL, DOGE, and XRP price
Cardano (ADA) corrected lower from the USD 0.688 resistance zone. It declined below USD 0.625 and is currently trading in a range near USD 0.60. Any more losses might call for a test of the USD 0.58 level.
BNB is struggling to settle above the USD 320 level. The next major resistance is near the USD 325 level. A close above USD 325 might send the price towards the USD 340 level.

DOGE is moving higher above the USD 0.0850 level. It even tested the USD 0.0880 resistance level. It seems like the bulls are aiming for a move above the USD 0.0900 and USD 0.0920 resistance levels.
XRP price is still struggling to clear the USD 0.425 resistance. A close above USD 0.425 might start a steady increase towards the USD 0.45 resistance.
Other altcoins market today
