Total market capitalization
After a minor drop, bitcoin price started a fresh increase above the USD 39,000 level. BTC even broke the USD 39,500 resistance. However, the price is struggling to settle above USD 40,000. A close above USD 40,000 could set the pace for a larger increase in the near term. The next major resistance is seen near the USD 42,000 level.
On the downside, the USD 39,400 level is a short-term support. The next key support is near USD 38,800, below which the price might test USD 38,000.
Ethereum price is stable above the USD 2,200 support level. However, ETH is facing a major hurdle near USD 2,325 and USD 2,350. To continue higher, the price must settle above USD 2,350. In this case, the price might accelerate higher towards the USD 2,450 level.
If there is no upside break, the price might correct lower below USD 2,250. The first key support is near USD 2,200. A close below USD 2,200 could set the pace for a larger decline.
