Bitcoin is priced at $ 36,560 with a 0.26% gain in value as of today morning hours. BTC, which retreated back to this region after breaking the rising channel movement that we follow, fell to 36,400, which we follow as a support level. Maintaining this level is important for the continuation of the upward movement. If the 36,400 level is broken down, a decline towards the 35,600 level may be possible. If the upward movement continues, we see that the 37,000 level is an important resistance. With the break of this region, a movement towards the 38,000 region can be seen.
ETH, which gained 0.27% as of morning hours, is priced at $ 2058. ETH, which rose to $ 2130 with the rise on Friday and over the weekend, retreated a little from this level. The $ 2035 level, which we follow as a support level, seems to be working for the moment. If this level is broken down, there may be a retracement towards 2000 and then 1970 levels. If the rise continues, an increase up to $ 2120 can be seen.
XRP is priced at $0.6662 with a 0.58% loss in value as of morning hours. XRP, which rose as high as 0.75 with the ETF news yesterday, gave back all the rise after the news was confirmed to be fake. When we analyze the 4-hour chart, we see that there is a consolidation zone between 0.6965 and 0.6450. A break of either of these two levels could lead to a move in that direction. These levels can be followed as support and resistance.
AVAX is priced at $ 16.92 with a 4.78% gain in value as of morning hours. Yesterday, there was some retracement with the break of the 17.85 zone, which we followed in the short term. Falling to $ 16, AVAX received some reaction from this point. In upward movements, 17 and 17.90 levels can be followed as resistance.
SOL is priced at $ 54.70 with a 5.97% gain in value as of morning hours. SOL, which experienced some retracement yesterday, fell as low as 51.40. If the reaction from this level continues, the 55.40 level can be followed as resistance. If this level is exceeded, $ 60 levels can be tested again. The support level is 51.40.
As of morning hours, LINK is pricing at 14.791 with a 3% gain in value. LINK, which fell to 14,250 with some retracement yesterday, received a reaction from the support point at this level. If the rise continues, the $ 15 level can be followed as resistance. With a downward break of the 14,250 support level, there may be a retracement towards the 13,500 level.
MATIC is priced at 0.9336 with a gain of 5.80% as of morning hours. When we examine the daily chart, a bullish movement took place with the upside break of the rectangle pattern. The 0.96 region can be followed as a resistance level. With a break of this level, a rise towards the 1 dollar level may be possible. In case of a pullback, 0.90 and below 0.86 may be tested.
MKR is pricing at $ 2.32 with a 2.32% gain in value as of morning hours. When we analyze the 12-hour chart, we see that the price re-entered the rectangle pattern zone. The resistance level is 1465.
