The largest cryptocurrency by market capitalization had quite a volatile day, with its price bouncing back from the $13,180 resistance and pushing up. While the price has reached ~$13,700 level, it has pulled back since, currently contesting the $13,570 resistance.

Ethereum had, just like Bitcoin, quite a volatile day today. Its price first bounced off of the ascending channel bottom line, which prompted a push towards $395 before falling yet again. As things stand now, the leg down is still not over yet, and Ethereum is yet to decide whether it will change its course towards the upside or break the channel down.

Traders should look for Ethereum’s response to the bottom channel line and trade in continuation to where it chooses to go.

The fourth-largest cryptocurrency by market cap had a bad day, as its price dropped below the crucial $0.2454 support level. XRP tried to recover and went above it at one point but failed to keep the price above the level, therefore triggering another push towards $0.24, where it is currently consolidating.

It is hard to say how traders should look at XRP, though the outlook is certainly bearish. Any push towards the upside will almost certainly result from Bitcoin making a large move towards the upside.
