Looking at the 4-hours chart, the price even settled above the $10,000 resistance and 21 simple moving average (4-hours). Moreover, there was a break above a crucial bearish trend line with resistance at $9,780 on the same chart.

The upward move was such that the price rallied above the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the last major decline from the $12,317 high to $9,369 low.

It opened the doors for more gains above the $10,200 and $10,320 resistance levels. Finally, the price climbed above the $10,500 resistance and tested the next key resistance area near $10,800.

It seems like the 50% Fib retracement level of the last major decline from the $12,317 high to $9,369 low is acting as a major resistance and preventing gains. If there are more upsides above $10,850, the price could continue to rise towards the $11,200 level.

The 61.8% Fib retracement level of the last major decline from the $12,317 high to $9,369 low is also near the $11,200. Any further gains may call for a bullish breakout towards the $11,800 and $12,000 resistance levels.

On the downside, an initial support is near the $10,560 level and the 21 simple moving average (4-hours). However, the main support is near the $10,400 level, below which bitcoin price might correct lower towards the $10,000 support level in the near term.

Ethereum Price Analysis

Ethereum price extended its decline below the $175.00 support level. ETH/USD even traded below the $170.00 level and tested the $165.00 support level. A swing low was formed near $164.16 and the price is currently correcting higher.

Looking at the 4-hours chart, the price recovered above the $170.00 resistance level and the 21 simple moving average (4-hours) to start a short term upside correction.

Moreover, there was a break above the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the last major decline from the $203.84 high to $164.16 low. The price even climbed above the $180.00 level, but it faced a strong selling interest.

It seems like the 50% Fib retracement level of the last major decline from the $203.84 high to $164.16 low acted as a major hurdle and prevented upsides. There is also a crucial bearish trend line forming with resistance near $178.00 on the same chart.

At the moment, the price is trading below the $178.00 level and the 21 simple moving average (4-hours). To start a decent upward move, the price must break the trend line, the 21 simple moving average (4-hours), and the $185.00 resistance area.

The next immediate resistance is near $188.00 and $190.00, above which the price could recover towards the $200.00 and $204.00 levels.

Conversely, if the price fails to climb above the $180.00 or $185.00 resistance, it could continue to slide. An initial support is near the $170.00 level, below which Ethereum might revisit the $164.16 swing low.

Binance Coin Price Analysis (BNB/USDT, Binance Exchange)

Binance coin mostly struggled to correct higher and extended its decline below the $21.50 support level. BNB price traded to a new multi-week low at $20.89 and later started consolidating losses.

Looking at the 4-hours chart, the price corrected a few points above the $21.50 level and the 21 simple moving average (4-hours), but gains were contained.

The price even climbed above the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the last key decline from the $27.21 high to $20.89 low. However, there are many hurdles on the upside near the $22.50 and $23.00 levels.

Moreover, there is a significant bearish trend line forming with resistance near $24.00 on the same chart. The 50% Fib retracement level of the last key decline from the $27.21 high to $20.89 low is also near the trend line.

Therefore, an upside correction towards the $23.50 and $24.00 levels could face a strong selling interest. If there is an upside break above $24.00, the price might test the next set of important hurdles near the $25.80 area.

On the downside, an initial support is near the $22.20 level plus the 21 simple moving average (4-hours). If the price fails to stay above the $22.00 support, there is a risk of a downside extension towards the $20.00 support area in the coming days.

Monero Price Analysis

Moneor price formed a strong support base near the $66.00 level against the US Dollar. As a result, the XMR/USD pair started an upward move and broke many resistances, including $70.00 and $72.00.

Looking at the 4-hours chart, the price even settled above the $70.00 level and the 21 simple moving average (4-hours). It opened the doors for more gains towards the $75.00 level.

During the rise, the price surpassed the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the decline from the $91.34 high to $66.01 low. Moreover, the price broke a crucial bearish trend line with resistance near the $74.00 level on the same chart.

The price is now trading nicely above the $76.00 level and it could continue to rise. An immediate resistance is near the $78.70 level since it coincides with the 50% Fib retracement level of the decline from the $91.34 high to $66.01 low.

If there are more upsides, the price will most likely climb above the $80.00 resistance and test the $83.75 pivot level.

On the downside, an immediate support is near the $75.00 level and 21 simple moving average (4-hours). If the price fails to hold the 21 SMA, there is a risk of a downside correction towards the $72.00 or $70.00 support level in the near term.

Top Gainers

During the past 7 days, a few small cap altcoins gained traction and climbed more than 100%, including MOF, OLMP, TBX, XCD, EQUAD and SRX (trading volume more than $50K). Out of these, MOF rallied around 340% and OLMP is up nearly 220%.

To sum up, bitcoin price is gaining bullish momentum and it could rally once the bulls succeed in surpassing the $10,850 and $11,200 resistance. If there is a downside correction, the $10,200 and $10,000 levels might protect declines in BTC/USD. However, most altcoins, including Ethereum, ripple, bitcoin cash, litecoin, XLM, ADA, TRX, EOS, NEO, WTC, and BSV are likely to struggle in the coming sessions.
