Bitcoin

The largest cryptocurrency by market capitalization is pushing past its psychological and actual major resistance of $12,000 right at this moment. The move started slow, with one candle testing the waters above $12,000 before backing out, before bulls went head-on and pushed the move quickly to far above this level. At the moment, Bitcoin has stopped its push at just above $12,250.

Traders should pay attention to hot Bitcoin finishes this move and trade either the pullback or the next wave up.

Ethereum

Ethereum’s price was pretty much stagnant until Bitcoin broke $12,000, which is when the second-largest cryptocurrency by market cap started pushing up as well. The price has slowly pushed past $371 and then explosively past $378, which is where it is at the moment.

Ripple

The fourth-largest cryptocurrency by market cap used the momentum Bitcoin’s move has created to push past its $0.2454 resistance once again after falling below it the day before. While this is a great thing, XRP couldn’t pass its previous resistance level of $0.25, which caused it to retest the support level. If it drops below $0.2454 again, bears may gather in a larger number and XRP might push down towards $0.235
