Bitcoin price

After a sharp decline, bitcoin price found support near the USD 58,500 level. BTC started an upside correction and traded above USD 60,000. On the upside, the price could struggle near the USD 61,000 level. A close above USD 61,000 could push the price towards the key USD 62,500 resistance zone.

On the downside, an initial support is near the USD 60,200 level. The next key support is near the USD 60,000 level, below which the price might start a fresh decrease.

Ethereum price

Ethereum price remained strong above the USD 4,000 and USD 4,050 levels. As a result, there was an upward move above the USD 4,250 resistance. The price even surpassed USD 4,300 and is now trading around this level.
