After a successful close above USD 36,000, bitcoin price extended its rise above the USD 37,000 and USD 37,500 levels. BTC even broke the USD 38,000 level, but it failed to stay above USD 38,500. It is consolidating gains, with an initial support near the USD 37,500 level. The first key support is near the USD 37,200 level, below which it could test the USD 36,500 level.
On the upside, the price might gain momentum again if it settles above the USD 38,500 level. In this case, the bulls might test USD 39,200 and USD 40,000.
Ethereum price broke the key USD 1,150 resistance level to move further into a positive zone. ETH settled above USD 1,150 and it is currently preparing for the next move. A clear break above USD 1,175 and USD 1,180 could lead the price towards the USD 1,220 and USD 1,240 levels.
On the downside, the USD 1,150 level is a decent support (the recent breakout zone). A close below USD 1,150 might lead the price towards the USD 1,120 level.
Bitcoin cash, litecoin and XRP price
Bitcoin cash price gained over 6% and it broke the USD 500 resistance level. BCH is showing positive signs and it seems like the bulls might test the USD 550 and USD 560 levels. If there is a downside correction, the USD 488 and USD 485 levels might provide support.
Litecoin (LTC) is trading in a bullish zone above USD 145. However, LTC must settle above USD 150 to gain a strong momentum. In the stated case, the price could rally 5%-6% and it might test the USD 165 level. The next major resistance on the upside is near the USD 180 level.
