Total market capitalization
After a clear break below USD 65,000, bitcoin price extended decline. BTC traded below the USD 62,000 support level to enter a short-term bearish zone and declined below USD 60,000. If the bears remain in action, the price could slide towards the USD 58,000 level. The next key support is near the USD 57,500 level.
On the upside, the USD 61,200 level is an initial hurdle. The next key resistance is forming near the USD 62,500 level, above which the price could start a steady increase.
Ethereum price also followed bitcoin and declined over 10%. ETH traded below the USD 4,250 and USD 4,200 support level. The next major support is at USD 4,000. A downside break below USD 4,000 could accelerate losses towards USD 3,800 in the near term.
Conversely, ETH might start a recovery wave above the USD 4,250 level. The next major resistance is near the USD 4,320 level, above which the price could rise towards USD 4,500.
ADA, BNB, SHIB, SOL, and XRP price
Cardano (ADA) settled below the USD 2.00 support. ADA even traded below the USD 1.92 and USD 1.90 support levels. If there is a close below USD 1.80, the price may perhaps drop towards the USD 1.72 level in the near term.
Binance coin (BNB) settled below the key USD 600 support. The price was approaching the USD 575 support but is now trying to reach USD 600 again.
SHIB declined below the USD 0.0000500 support zone. It is down 7% and approaching the USD 0.0000475 level. The next major support is near USD 0.0000450, below which the price could dive towards USD 0.000040.
Solana (SOL) failed to stay above the USD 232 support zone. It is moving lower and trading below USD 220. If there are additional losses, the bears might test the USD 205 and USD 200 support levels.
XRP price started a fresh decline below the USD 1.12 and USD 1.10 support levels. The next key support is near USD 1.05. Any more losses may perhaps lead the price towards the main support at USD 1.00.
