Bitcoin is priced at $ 36,713 with a 0.01% gain in value as of today morning hours. After yesterday’s ETF update news, it had risen as high as $ 37,500. This pullback is quite healthy and a positive sign for the price to move up. The rejection zone is a very strong supply zone and may be a bit difficult to overcome. For the upward movement to continue, pricing above $40,000 should be seen. If the downward correction will deepen, we may see a pullback to $ 33,000.
ETH, which gained 0.53% as of morning hours, is priced at $ 2132. A high-volume breakout took place after BlackRock’s Ether ETF application. 2130 dollars is an important level and the last time it was able to reach these levels was in April. If there is a pullback, $ 2050 and then $ 2000 seem to be 2 very strong supports. In the continuation of the upward movement, it is very important to spend some time above $ 2160. Then, its medium-term target seems to be 3200 dollars.
XRP is priced at $0.6640 with a 0.35% gain as of morning hours. When we examined the daily chart, we said that $0.6740 was an important level and could work as support, but it went down to the red zone by experiencing a deeper retracement. The fact that the price is still above $0.65 is quite positive, and it now needs to sustain above $0.70. 0.7314 and 0.7950 may appear as resistance.
AVAX is priced at $ 13.26 with a 2.47% gain in value as of morning hours. Although it retreated to 11.80 with yesterday’s volatile movement, it is still priced above $13, which is quite good for the price increase to continue. At pricing above 13.80, we can now see $15 as the new target. If there is a pullback, 12.35 may work as support this time.
SOL is priced at $ 46.90 with a gain of 3.53% as of morning hours. SOL, which rose above $ 45 after yesterday’s rise, is currently trading at $ 46.80, the resistance zone. When we examine the support levels, we come across the $ 45 level. If it falls below this level, a retreat to $ 42.50 levels may be possible. At the resistance levels, $46.80 and then the $47 level could work as resistance levels for SOL.
As of morning hours, LINK is pricing at 14.350 with a 1.77% loss in value. LINK, which rose up to $ 15 with yesterday’s rise, fell below $ 15 with the selling pressure at the resistance level in the 15,300 region. The 15.300 region appears as a resistance level. With the crossing of this resistance zone, it can rise up to $ 16. When we examine the support points, it seems that the $ 13 and lower $ 13,500 levels are important.
TRX is pricing at 0.10003 with a gain of 1.15% as of morning hours. When we examine the daily chart, it made a good rise after breaking through the resistance zone. When we look at the resistance levels, it seems that the 0.10066 region is important. With an upward break of this zone, a rise towards the 0.11 level may be possible. The support zone is 0.09650. With a downward break of this level, there may be a retreat to 0.09390.
SAND is priced at $ 0.4169 with a 5.54% gain in value as of morning hours. When we examine the daily chart, we see that there is a good rise with the upward break of the 0.3386 zone. If SAND, which is momentarily above the 0.3960 resistance zone, maintains above this zone, it may be possible to rise up to 0.4360. When we examine the support levels, we come across the 0.3960 and 0.3690 regions. In case of a pullback, the reaction of these levels seems to be important.
