Later, the price started a downside correction below the $12,000 level. Moreover, there was a break below the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the upward move from the $10,528 low to $12,323 high.

However, the decline was protected by the $11,250 level and the 21 simple moving average (4-hours). More importantly, the 50% Fib retracement level of the upward move from the $10,528 low to $12,323 high acted as a support.

The price climbed higher once gain above the $11,500 and $11,750 levels. However, the $12,000 and $12,150 levels are currently acting as key resistances.

Additionally, there is a crucial breakout pattern forming with resistance near the $12,180 level. If there is a successful break above the $12,180 and $12,250 resistance levels, the price is likely to surpass the $12,323 swing high.

The next major resistance is near the $12,500 level, above which bitcoin price could aim the $13,000 and $13,200 resistance levels.

Conversely, if the price fails to continue to higher, it could decline below the $11,750 and $11,650 levels. The next support is near the $11,225 level plus the 61.8% Fib retracement level of the upward move from the $10,528 low to $12,323 high. However, the main uptrend support is near $11,000, where the bulls are likely to take a stand.

Looking at the 4-hours chart, the price traded above the $230.0 resistance plus 21 simple moving average (4-hours). Moreover, there was a break above a major bearish trend line with resistance near $222 on the same chart.

However, the price struggled to surpass the key $235.00 and $240.00 resistance levels. A swing high was formed near $239.70 and the price is currently correcting lower.

It traded below the $230.00 level plus the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the upward move from the $198.23 low to $239.70 high. Moreover, the price seems to be following a declining channel with resistance near the $222.00 level.

Therefore, an upside break above $222.00 and $225.00 might push the price higher. Having said that, a successful close above the $235.00 and $240.00 resistance levels is needed for a sustained upward move in the near term.

On the downside, an initial support is near the $218.00 level plus the 50% Fib retracement level of the upward move from the $198.23 low to $239.70 high.

If there is a downside break below the $218.00 and $215.00 support levels, Ethereum price is likely to continue lower towards the main $200.00 support level.

Looking at the 4-hours chart, the price gained strength after a successful close above $28.50 and the 21 simple moving average (4-hours). The price also broke a crucial bearish trend line with resistance near the $27.95 level.

It opened the doors for sharp gains and the price surged above the $29.60 and $30.00 resistance levels. The bulls even pushed the price above the $31.00 level and a swing high was formed at $31.88.

An immediate resistance is near the $32.00 level, above which the price could challenge the key $32.50 resistance area. Conversely, if there is a downside correction, the price may find bids near the $30.80 level.

The 23.6% Fib retracement level of the upward move from the $27.38 low to $31.88 high is also near the $30.80 level. However, the main supports on the downside are near the $30.00 and $29.60 levels.

The $29.60 support holds the key since it was a resistance earlier and now it could act as a buy zone. Besides, the 50% Fib retracement level of the upward move from the $27.38 low to $31.88 high is also near the $29.63 level.

Litecoin Price Analysis

The recent low was formed near $87.41 and the price is currently consolidating. An immediate resistance is near $90.00 and a bearish trend line. The next resistance is near $92.00, the 21 simple moving average (4-hours), and the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the decline from the $107.03 high to $87.41 low.

If the price surpasses the $90.00 and $92.00 resistances, it could recover towards the $100.00 resistance. An intermediate resistance is near $97.20 plus the 50% Fib retracement level of the decline from the $107.03 high to $87.41 low.

Conversely, if there is a downside break below the $87.00 support zone, litecoin price could tumble. The next important support is near the $80.00 and $78.20 levels.

Top Gainers

During the past 7 days, a few small cap altcoins climbed higher and gained more than 75%, including MNX, DXG, YOU, XRC, BOOM, TOPC and IPC (trading volume more than $50K). Out of these, MNX rallied around 160% and DXG is up nearly 155%.

To sum up, bitcoin price is trading in a nice uptrend above the $11,700 and $11,500 support levels.
