Bitcoin is priced at $ 34,426 with a 1.43% loss in value as of today morning hours. It had broken the pennant structure with the interest rate decision on Wednesday remaining unchanged, but it entered the structure again. In order to see this move as a correction, we need to see a reaction at $33,500. Where we are now, at $34,250, is a good support. If it rises above $ 35,000 again, it can go up to $ 38,000.
ETH, which lost 0.45% as of morning hours, is priced at $ 1793. 1760 is a very strong support, although it is not positive that it cannot provide permanence above $ 1800. With the reaction it will get from $1760, it can rise above the $1800 level again. If it does not find enough strength, a test to $1720 and then to $1700 may take place.
XRP is pricing at $0.5950 with a 1.70% loss in value as of morning hours. Above $0.60 did not provide much permanence, but above $0.55 is quite positive for Ripple. After a retest around $0.5881, we are likely to see the $0.62 level again. A strong downside break of 0.5881 could take the price first to 0.57 and then to 0.55.
AVAX is priced at $ 11.60 with a 2.36% loss in value as of morning hours. After climbing up to $ 12.50, it retested to $ 11.80, but it broke downward and came down to its next support, that is, to the level of 11.50. In an upward movement from here, the first target will be to break $ 11.87 again, followed by a persistence above $ 12. In the continuation of the downward movement, $ 11 seems to be the next strong support position.
SOL is priced at $ 38.61 with a 4.05% loss in value as of morning hours. Rising to $ 48, SOL fell to $ 38 after facing selling pressure at this level. It may be possible to evaluate this movement as a correction of the uptrend that has been going on for about two weeks. When we examine the support points, the closest support point is 37 dollars. If it falls below this level, it may be possible to retreat to the level of 36 dollars. In upward movements, the $40 level may work as a resistance level for SOL.
As of morning hours, LINK is pricing at 10.782 with a 20.4% loss in value. At its peak, it rose as high as $12 and then fell to $10,700. The reactions from this level are important for the continuation of the upward movement. When we examine the support points, it seems that 10,500 and lower 10 dollar levels are important. In upward movements, the $ 11 level can be followed as resistance.
MKR is pricing at 1297 with a 0.84% depreciation as of morning hours. When we examine the 12-hour chart, we see that a rectangle-like pattern has broken downwards.
