Total market capitalization
After a short-term downside correction, bitcoin price found support just above USD 12,800. BTC started a fresh increase and climbed back above USD 13,000. An initial resistance on the upside is near the USD 13,200 level. The first significant resistance is near the USD 13,350, above which the bulls might aim for a break above the USD 13,500 level.
On the downside, initial support is near the USD 13,000 level. The primary weekly support seems to be forming near the USD 12,750 level.
Ethereum price started a downside correction from the USD 420 resistance. ETH/USD is currently trading with a positive bias above the USD 400 and USD 405 levels. Immediate resistance is near the USD 412 level, but the primary resistance for upside continuation is near the USD 420 level.

Bitcoin Cash, Chainlink, and XRP Price
Bitcoin’s cash price soared higher above the USD 270 and USD 275 levels, but it failed to test the USD 280 resistance.

XRP price corrected lower, but it remained well bid above the USD 0.250 and USD 0.252 levels. The price is now rising and trading above USD 0.255. However, the bulls need to gain strength above the weekly hurdles at USD 0.260 and USD 0.262 to start another significant increase.
