Bitcoin

After failing to break the $12,000 mark, BTC bears have taken over the market, causing the price to plummet, reaching as low as $10,000. The largest cryptocurrency by market cap took the weekend to consolidate and establish its presence above $10,000. However, the $10,360 resistance level proves its strength once again, making Bitcoin’s rebound towards the upside that much harder.

If the bulls fail to break the $10,360 level and sustain it, the bears will most likely make one more attempt to bring the price down. In this case, a drop to the 200-day SMA ($9,080) is likely. However, if BTC manages to bounce off the current level and rise above $10,500, a move to $11,000 is likely.

Traders should pay close attention to Bitcoin’s price movement around the $10,360 level, as the next move will determine its short-term future.

3: $10,850                                 3: $9,600

Ethereum

Ethereum had a similar weekend as Bitcoin, as its price consolidated and tried to establish itself above the most recent low of $310. While its price did get stuck at the $360 resistance level, it increased in value much more than Bitcoin, most likely due to the growing popularity of DeFi.

With all being said, Ethereum’s short-term future will be decided by the popularity of DeFi and the problems it will encounter with extremely high Gas fees.

Traders should pay attention to how ETH handles the $360 level.

3: $415                                      3: $300

Ripple

While XRP suffered the same fate as Bitcoin and Ethereum in terms of price movement, the third-largest cryptocurrency by market cap did have slight differences in the move towards the downside. XRP had several bull comebacks that tried to push the price back up, but failed due to the overall bearishness of the market.

XRP is now consolidating between the $0.235 and $0.2454, with low volume and no signs of future movement (unless the technicals change drastically).

XRP traders should watch out for any form of break of the immediate support/resistance levels.
