On the daily chart, Bitcoin (BTC) might face a correction to the mirror level at $42,000 as there is almost no liquidity at the moment to keep the rise.


However, one should consider such a move as a short-term decline as part of the long-term bullish trend.

Bitcoin is trading at $45,638 at press time.


Ethereum (ETH) is showing less growth than Bitcoin (BTC) as the rate of the leading altcoin has risen by only 3%.

From the technical perspective, Ethereum (ETH) needs more time to show a price blast as the coin is still in the accumulation phase. In this regard, sideways trading in the range of $1,650-$1,750 is the more likely scenario for the upcoming days.

Ethereum is trading at $1,742 at press time.


XRP is the second-most growing coin today. The rate of the altcoin has gone up by 6.38% since yesterday.

XRP keeps trading in the bullish channel, aiming at the vital $0.50 mark. However, there are low chances for a breakout as the buying trading volume is low enough to fix above the resistance.

XRP is trading at $0.46 at press time.
