Total market capitalization
After a clear break above USD 37,000, bitcoin price extended its recovery above the USD 38,000 resistance. BTC even spiked above the USD 40,000 resistance, but there was no follow up move. The price is now correcting lower and trading below USD 39,000. The first key support is near the USD 37,000 level, below which the price might revisit the USD 35,500 zone.
An initial resistance is near the USD 39,200 level. The main resistance is near the USD 40,000 zone, above which the price might continue to rise towards the USD 42,000 resistance.
Ethereum price also followed bitcoin and it gained pace above the USD 2,550 resistance level. ETH gained over 15% and it tested the USD 2,750 resistance. The price failed to continue higher and corrected below USD 2,600.

BNB, LTC, DOGE, and XRP price
Binance Coin (BNB) rallied over 25% and it settled above the USD 300 level. BNB even surged above USD 350 and it tested the USD 375 level. The price is now consolidating near USD 350 and it might correct lower towards the USD 320 support zone. The main support is now forming near USD 300.
Litecoin (LTC) settled above the USD 150 and USD 160 level. LTC is up 20% and it even broke the USD 180 level. However, the bulls need to clear the USD 200 barrier for upside continuation. If not, the price might drop again to test the USD 150 support zone.
Dogecoin (DOGE) climbed above the USD 0.350 resistance level. It even tested the USD 0.380 zone before trimming some gains. It seems like there is a decent support forming near the USD 0.335 and USD 0.320 levels. On the upside, the USD 0.400 zone is still a major hurdle.
XRP price gained bullish momentum above the USD 0.90 resistance level. The price even spiked above USD 1.00, but there was no proper close. It is now correcting gains, but the USD 0.800 level could provide support in the near term.
