Ethereum spent the past 24 hours trying to establish a price above the $168 support level. However, the latest push down broke the level, and ETH went below $168. It looks like the second-largest crypto will retest at least the $158 level, if not more.

Ethereum’s volume skyrocketed during the price drop, while its RSI level is at 46.

XRP spent the past couple of days fighting to stay above $0.2. However, the tight range between $0.2 and $0.205 was not enough for XRP, so the price had to move somewhere. A slight increase in bearish presence brought the price down to rested the $0.19 levels and solidified XRP’s position below $0.2. The level seems to be holding up nicely so far, which means that $0.19 will not fall unless the volume increases dramatically.

XRP’s RSI level has been dropping for the past couple of days, now being at 45.
