The crypto market has spent the day with increased volatility as Bitcoin was trying to pass the $10,000 mark.  While the level got rejected once again, the price increase did happen.

Bitcoin’s dominance increased since we last reported, with its value currently at 65.34%. This value represents a 0.14% difference to the upside when compared to yesterday’s value.

The cryptocurrency market capitalization increased slightly over the course of the day, with the market’s current value being $281.26 billion. This value represents an increase of $3.57 billion when compared to the value it had yesterday.

What happened in the past 24 hours

Are Chinese bank accounts getting frozen by the government?

Almost 4,000 Chinese bank accounts have reportedly been frozen by the local government due to cryptocurrency trading. According to a report published on Monday, the Chinese police force froze the bank accounts of thousands of OTC traders from the Chinese province of Guangdong.

The report stated that the authorities started freezing bank accounts on Thursday. While the law enforcement is claiming that they are freezing only accounts tied to illicit activities, retail investors saw their bank account frozen after buying cryptocurrency on credible crypto exchanges.


Technical analysis



The largest cryptocurrency by market capitalization has spent the day preparing for a move towards the upside. The price attempted to break the $10,000 threshold several times, each time being unsuccessful. However, even though the price point got rejected, Bitcoin gained some value and managed to pass $9,870 (which is being tested at the time of writing).

If Bitcoin manages to pass $10,000, it can face resistance above the $10,300 level.

Key levels to the upside                    Key levels to the downside

1: $10,010                                         1: $9,870

2: $10,355                                         2: $9,735

                                                           3: $9,580


Ethereum also made a move towards the upside while attempting to break its resistance level of $251.4. While the break is (so far) unsuccessful, it seems like the second-largest cryptocurrency by market cap has strong support in both the $240 level and the 21-period moving average, which means that the price will not dramatically fall without a fight.

Ethereum’s volume increased drastically during the peak of the move towards the upside but started to fade as the $251.4 level kept resisting.

Key levels to the upside                    Key levels to the downside

1: $251.4                                            1: $240

2: $260                                              2: $225.4

                                                           3: $217.6


XRP stayed in its tight range over the course of the day, bound by the $0.2 support and $0.205 resistance level. While its price increased slightly, XRP didn’t make a determined move towards the upside (like Bitcoin and Ethereum did).

While scalp traders might enjoy the ranging moves, a confirmed break to either the upside or downside will benefit any trader as the move would most likely be easy to spot and profit from.

Key levels to the upside                    Key levels to the downside

1: $0.205                                           1: $0.2

2: $0.214                                           2: $0.19

 3: $0.227
