Top Altcoin Gainers and Losers
The top performers in the Asian session were Klaytn (KLAY), Polygon (MATIC), and TerraClassicUSD (USTC). Klaytn (KLAY) is up more than 25% to $0.18, while MATIC is up more than 6% to $0.88. At the same time, USTC has surged more than 6% in the last 24 hours.
In the last 24 hours, the price of The Chain (XCN) has dropped by more than 3% to $0.05. The price of Axie Infinity (AXS) has dropped more than 2% to around $8.6.
The current Bitcoin price is $19,339, and the 24-hour trading volume is $25 billion. Bitcoin has gained by more than 0.50% in the last 24 hours. CoinMarketCap currently ranks first, with a live market cap of $370 billion.
On Monday, the BTC/USD violated the symmetrical triangle pattern at $19,250, and now the same level is likely to act as major support. Closing of candles above this level has the potential to drive an uptrend until the $19,650 level, and a bullish crossover above this could lead BTC toward $19,950.
Typically, the symmetrical triangle’s bullish breakout results in an uptrend continuation; therefore, bulls may dominate the market. The MACD and RSI are also holding in a buying zone, signaling a bullish trend. Let’s consider staying bullish over $19,200 support today.
On the lower side, a break below the $19,200 level can open up further room for selling until $18,950 or $18.650.
The current price of Ethereum is $1,344, with a 24-hour trading volume of $11 billion. In the last 24 hours, Ethereum has pumped over 2%. Whereas, CoinMarketCap now ranks ETH at #2, with a live market cap of $164 billion.
On the technical front, the ETH/USD pair has broken through an ascending triangle pattern on the higher side. After getting rejected at $1,365, Ethereum is again in a downtrend and is likely to gain immediate support near $1,340, the double-bottom area.
The 50-day moving average is now likely to provide additional support near the psychological trading level of $1,300.
On the upside, the major resistance levels for Ethereum remain at $1,360 and $1,384. The bullish bias remains strong at over $1,340 today.
