Total market capitalization
Recently, bitcoin price started a fresh increase above the USD 8,650 and USD 8,700 resistance levels. More importantly, BTC/USD surpassed the USD 8,850 resistance area and climbed to a new 2020 high. The price is currently showing a lot of positive signs and it seems like it could rise further towards the USD 9,250 and USD 9,300 levels.
On the downside, the USD 8,850 and USD 8,700 levels are likely to provide support. If there are more downsides, the price is likely to revisit the main USD 8,550 support area in the near term.
Ethereum price is gaining bullish momentum from the USD 160 support. ETH/USD surged above the USD 166 and USD 170 resistance levels. It seems like the bulls are now aiming a clear break above the USD 175 and USD 178 levels in the coming sessions.
On the downside, the previous resistance near USD 166 is likely to act as a buy zone. If there is a fresh decline below USD 166, the bulls are likely to struggle to hold the USD 158 support.

Bitcoin cash price remained well bid above the USD 320 support area. BCH/USD is currently surging and trading above the USD 340 resistance.
