Total Market Capitalization
We recently saw a few bearish signs for bitcoin price below $12,000. As a result, there was a bearish reaction below the $11,800 support. BTC declined over 2%, and it even settled below $11,500. If the bears remain in action, there are chances of a push towards the $11,050 and $11,000 support levels.

Ethereum price is now below the $385 and $380 support levels. It declined close to 4%, and it is currently trading near $378. If there are more downsides, the price could retest the $365 support level. The next significant support is seen near $355.
Conversely, the price might move back above the $380 and $385 levels. If there is a proper close above $385, the bulls could make another attempt to clear the $400 resistance.
