Bitcoin is priced at $ 27,060 with a 0.22% gain in value as of today morning hours. Bitcoin, which managed to maintain its permanence above the 27,000 level, managed to remain strong above expectations, even though its volatility remained lower than expected after the FED meeting. We can say that the price movements in crypto assets, where the volume is slowly returning to the market, are slowly recovering and if this continues, we can return to the uptrend with positive data and news flows, and we can say that it is necessary to watch the continuation of a little stronger price movements in order to make an assessment that the image is positive. In order to have a positive outlook, we first need to see a permanent break of the $ 28,000 level. In any bearish scenario, we can see that 26,600 and then 26,300 levels can work as support.
ETH, which lost 0.06% as of morning hours, is priced at $ 1623. In Ethereum, we see that the pricing between 1600-1670 continues on the 4-hour chart. Ethereum, which retreated to 1605 after its last test at 1670, is now seeing support from here for now. If the downward movement in Ethereum continues, the price should be paid attention to the levels of 1600 and then 1580 dollars.
XRP is priced at $0.5152 with a 1.15% loss in value as of morning hours. In XRP, we see that the 0.51 level, which was the horizontal resistance level in 4 hours, is working as support and the horizontal movement between 0.51-0.55 is back. The next resistance levels in Ripple seem to be 0.53 and then 0.55 levels, while 0.51 and 0.4950 levels will work as support in retreats.
AVAX is priced at $ 9.05 with a 0.1% loss in value as of morning hours. AVAX has reached the end of the descending movement. We see 9 million tokens creating intense selling pressure. After the token launch, we saw the price bounce back from 8.86 levels. In the event that the support zone we see in the 9.00-9.10 range is broken downwards, we see that our next long-term support level in Avax is in the $ 7 region. In case of an upward movement, we will be targeting 9.40 levels in Avax.
SOL is pricing at 19.97 with a 1.58% depreciation as of morning hours. The $20.50 resistance seen at the end of the upward movement in Solana was not broken, despite being tested several times yesterday, and the price remained below $20 again. Although Solana is preferred by institutional investors and at the same time, it has broken the impact of FTX news with its positive performance on the NFT side, it causes Solana to be unable to break the $ 20 levels.
LINK, which lost 1.10% as of morning hours, is priced at 6.829. After the break of the horizontal band in LINK, we see that it was rejected at the $ 7 level. In case of retesting to the horizontal band again, there is a possibility that the $ 6.50 level will work as support. After the 7 dollar level is exceeded, our first resistance level will be 7.30 levels.
