The price is now trading well above USD 38,000, with an immediate resistance near the USD 39,200 level. A clear break above the USD 39,200 zone could open the doors for a fresh test of USD 40,000.

Initial support is near the USD 38,000 level. The first major support sits at USD 37,500, below which the price might test the main weekly support at USD 35,500.

Ethereum Price

Ethereum (ETH) declined sharply towards the USD 1,500 support zone. ETH recovered from USD 1,500 and it is now trading above USD 1,600. If the bulls remain active, the price could surge towards the USD 1,680 and USD 1,700. Any more gains could lead the price towards the USD 1,750 level.

If there is another decline, the USD 1,550 is decent support. The main support is now forming near the USD 1,500 level, below which the price might decline heavily.

Bitcoin Cash, Litecoin, and Ripple Price

Bitcoin Cash (BCH) is stable above USD 440 and it is consolidating in a range. BCH is facing a minor hurdle near USD 450, above which the price might accelerate higher. The next major resistance sits at USD 465, above which it could start a strong rally towards the USD 500 level.

Litecoin (LTC) is stable near USD 150 and it is showing a few positive signs. If LTC gains pace above USD 155, it could revisit the USD 165 level. Any more upsides could set the pace for a move towards the USD 188 and USD 192 levels. On the downside, the USD 142 and USD 140 levels are strong support zones.

Ripple (XRP) price settled above the USD 0.400 and USD 0.420 levels. The price is currently consolidating and it seems like it could attempt another upside break above USD 0.440 and USD 0.450. A close above USD 0.450 may spark a strong increase in the coming sessions.
