Bitcoin

After managing to fend off the bears and establish its presence above $11,630 yesterday, Bitcoin started moving towards the upside. The largest cryptocurrency by market cap pushed towards the upside and quickly reached the $12,000 mark. However, the cryptocurrency did not stay above it for long and fell under it yet again. Bitcoin is now on a path towards the downside.

Traders should pay attention to how Bitcoin’s price reacts to its moving averages, as well as to $11,630.

Ethereum

Ethereum had another extremely bullish day, where its parabolic rise continued. The second-largest cryptocurrency by market cap surged towards the upside and passed $445 with ease, only to be stopped a little under $490. Ethereum is now consolidating slightly below this level.

Ethereum’s parabolic price rise is attributed to a surge of interest in DeFi projects, and all they have to offer.

Ethereum traders should pay attention to DeFi announcements, as well as to how ETH will consolidate.

                                                  3: $360

Ripple

XRP, boosted by the other cryptos increasing in price, pushed towards the upside itself. The third-largest cryptocurrency by market cap managed to get past the $0.285 resistance level, and then quickly (and successfully) retested it. The move towards the upside got stopped at $0.305, and XRP is now consolidating slightly under it.

While XRP’s move seems like it ran out of steam, its volume is still relatively high, which may indicate a possibility of further volatility.

Traders should look at XRP’s volume spikes and check for any signs of its next move’s direction.
