On the 12H chart, Bitcoin (BTC) has gotten out of the consolidation phase and is ready to keep the growth going. However, it is unlikely to set new peaks as bulls are not powerful enough. In this case, one may expect a retest of the mark around $61,500, followed by a slight correction.

Bitcoin is trading at $57,747 at press time.


Ethereum (ETH) is less bullish than Bitcoin (BTC) as the price change of the main altcoin is +4.75%.

Ethereum (ETH) is on its way to the vital $3,000 mark. The buying trading volume is low, which means that bulls have not accumulated enough power to reach that mark. In this case, a sideways trend around $2,850 may last for some days before a breakout occurs.

Ethereum is trading at $2,877 at press time.


XRP is the only loser from our list, falling by 2.28%.

Despite the fall, XRP is bullish in the short-term scenario. The selling trading volume is low, which means that bears are not willing to sell at the current levels.


That is why the more likely price action is an ongoing rise to the resistance around $1.81.

XRP is trading at $1.55 at press time.


Binance Coin (BNB) continues its rise day after day, and the growth since yesterday is 2.58%.

Binance Coin (BNB) is targeting the $800 mark on the daily chart. The volatility is decreasing, which means that the accumulation period is about to end soon. Such a statement is also confirmed by a low trading volume.

BNB is trading at $624 at press time.


Chainlink (LINK) is not an exception to the rule as the price of the altcoin has increased by almost 2%.

The rise of Chainlink (LINK) has not reached its peak yet. Bears may seize the initiative around the closest resistance at $40.30. However, in the long-term scenario, buyers have the chance to attack the peak at $44.30.
