BTC/USD 

Our earlier scenario about Bitcoin (BTC) reaching the $8,750 level has come true. With the start of the expected correction, the Bulls have been unable to fix above the $9,000 mark.

BTC/USD chart by TradingView

The price of the leading crypto fell below the 200-Day Moving Average (MA) to $9,180, which has been serving as a level of support for almost two weeks. Having overcome the crucial $9,000, BTC found short-term support in the form of the 100-Day MA on the 4H chart, forming the downward triangle's lower border.

ETH/USD chart by TradingView

Looking at the 1D chart, ETH is located between the $165 support level and the $195 resistance level.

At press time, ETH is trading at $183.44.

In comparison to BTC and ETH, XRP (XRP) is today's biggest loser. Its rate has plummeted around 4% since yesterday.
