ADA, BNB, SOL, DOGE, and XRP price

Cardano (ADA) is accelerating losses below the USD 0.70 level. The price is down 11% and might even test the USD 0.65 level. Any more losses might send the price towards the USD 0.62 level.

BNB is now trading well below the key USD 350 support level and is testing the USD 330 support. If the bears remain in action, there is a risk of a move towards the USD 320 level.

Solana (SOL) gained bearish momentum below the USD 80 level and is down almost 10% in a day. It is now approaching the USD 70 level. A downside break below USD 70 might open the doors for a test of USD 65 or even USD 62.

DOGE broke the key USD 0.120 support zone. It is now approaching the USD 0.115 level. The next major support is near USD 0.110, where the bulls may perhaps take a stand.
