A rather strong bearish momentum pulled the pair back below the average price level tonight, and sellers tested the $46,000 support. In the morning, the price bounced off this support level and is consolidating around the two-hour moving average EMA55. If at the beginning of this week the bearish momentum is repeated, then the decline may reach $44,000. If the level of average prices restrains the onslaught of sellers, the pair will recover to the area of $​​49,000.

Bitcoin is trading at $47,892 at press time.

Nevertheless, the bears pushed through this strong support tonight and set a local minimum at $1,660. In the morning, the price bounced to the area of ​​$1,720 and is trying to continue recovery in the area of ​​the moving average EMA55. However, the volume of purchases is still low, and the pressure by sellers may intensify. As a result, at the beginning of this week, the pair may roll back to the support line ($1,560).

Ethereum is trading at $1,803 at press time.

XRP/USD

Over the weekend, the XRP price could not hold above the $0.60 level. By the beginning of this week, it fell back below the 4H EMA55.

The level of average prices has suspended the pair's decline thus far and does not allow sellers to test the psychological mark of $0.50. However, today bears may intensify the onslaught and bring the price of the coin back below $0.50.
