Yesterday, there was a slight downside correction in bitcoin price below the USD 3,800 support. BTC/USD declined below USD 3,750 and tested the USD 3,700 – USD 3,720 support area where buyers emerged.

On the other hand, ethereum remained well bid above the USD 140 and USD 142 support levels. Ripple price is currently struggling, but a break above the USD 0.370 resistance may trigger bullish moves in the near term.

After forming a support base near USD 3,700 bitcoin price started an upward move. If there is an upside break above the USD 3,800 and USD 3,850, there could be more gains above the USD 3,900 level in the near term.

BCH/USD is currently consolidating above the USD 160 support and it may soon bounce back above the USD 165 resistance. Bitcoin SV declined more than 4% and tested the USD 85 support area. A break below the USD 85 support could push the price below the USD 80 support.
Ripple price declined recently and tested the USD 0.355 support. XRP/USD seems to be struggling above the USD 0.360 level, therefore, a break above USD 0.365 could clear the path for a push toward USD 0.375.
