Weak recovery of declining volumes brought the BTC price back to the $37,300 mark. If the recovery continues today, the pair may return to the resistance of $40,000 by the end of this week.

Bitcoin is trading at $38,116 at press time.


Yesterday morning, buyers were unable to break above the $1,700 mark and a pullback in the Ethereum (ETH) price led to a retest of the $1,555 level. In this area, the decline has stalled and the bulls tried to return Ether to the zone of the recent high.

On the daily chart, Ethereum (ETH) is trading within the rising channel, having updated the all-time high today. Ongoing growth is the outcome of the accumulation phase between $1,100 and $1,300, which means that the current level may not be the peak. In this case, there are chances of seeing the leading altcoins at around $2,000 shortly.

Ethereum is trading at $1,744 at press time.


Yesterday, the XRP price was able to overcome the resistance of $0.40 and eventually marked a local maximum at $0.482.
