Looking at the 4-hours chart, the price traded as low as $6,326 and later started a fresh upward move. It broke the $6,500 resistance area and also breached the 21 simple moving average (4-hours).

Besides, there was a break above the 50% Fib retracement level of the last slide from the $6,841 high to $6,326 low. More importantly, there was a break above a crucial bearish trend line with resistance at $6,585 on the same chart.

The price is currently testing the $6,720 resistance area, which is close to the 76.4% Fib retracement level of the last slide from the $6,841 high to $6,326 low. If bitcoin buyers manage to clear the $6,720 resistance and the $6,750 pivot level, there could be more gains in the near term.

On the upside, the next target for buyers could be $6,960 and the 1.236 Fib extension level of the last slide from the $6,841 high to $6,326 low.

On the other hand, if there is a downside move, the price is likely to find support near $6,440 and $6,320 levels. Below this last, the price may test the most important support at $6,130.

Ethereum Price Analysis

Ethereum price mostly traded in a broad range above the $185 support area. ETH/USD recently dipped towards the $200 level, but buyers appeared and protected losses below $202.

Looking at the 4-hours chart, the price traded as low as $202.92 and it is currently moving higher. It broke the $216 resistance and settled above the 21 simple moving average (4-hours).

Additionally, there was a break above the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the last decline from the $255 swing high to $202 low. However, the price is currently finding sellers near the $235-237 zone. It seems like buyers are struggling to push the price above the $235 zone.

Moreover, the 61.8% Fib retracement level of the last decline from the $255 swing high to $202 low is acting as a strong hurdle. There is also a key connecting bearish trend line formed with resistance at $233 on the same chart.

Therefore, a proper break above the trend line and $237 is needed for more gains. The next target for buyers could be $252, followed by $260.

On the flip side, if the price moves down once again, the 21 SMA at $217 may act as a support. Below the 21 SMA, the price could retest the $200 support area. The most important support on the downside awaits at $185-186, which is also a pivot level.

Ripple Price Analysis

Ripple price gained a lot of traction during the past few days as it rallied above the $0.6500 resistance against the US Dollar. XRP/USD surged above the $0.7000 level as well before sellers appeared near $0.7900.

Looking at the 4-hours chart, the price traded as high as $0.7906 and later corrected sharply lower. The price trimmed more than 25% gains and tested the 21 simple moving average (4-hours).

A swing low was formed at $0.4353 and the price started recovering. It traded above the 21 SMA and the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the last decline from the $0.7906 high to $0.4353 low.

At present, it seems like there is a major breakout pattern formed with resistance at $0.5600. If buyers push the price above the $0.5600 resistance, ripple could resume its uptrend. In the mentioned case, the price will most likely break the $0.6000 resistance and trade towards $0.7000.

On the other hand, if the price breaks down and settles below $0.5000, there could be a fresh decline towards the $0.4500 and $0.4200 support levels.

Overall, the next move in ripple depends whether buyers succeed in clearing the $0.5600 resistance in the near term.

EOS Price Analysis

EOS price was nicely supported above the $4.80 and $5.00 support levels against the US Dollar. However, there were no major gains as the price struggled to surpass the $6.20-6.30 resistance area.

Looking at the 4-hours chart, the price traded as low as $4.98 recently and later started a fresh upward move. It traded above the $5.50 resistance and settled above the 21 simple moving average (4-hours).

The upside move was strong as the price traded above the 50% Fib retracement level of the last decline from the $6.32 high to $4.98 low. Moreover, there was a break above a key bearish trend line with resistance at $5.65.

The next resistance for buyers is near $6.00 and the 76.4% Fib retracement level of the last decline from the $6.32 high to $4.98 low. Above $6.00, there are two important resistances for buyers at $6.30 and $6.70.

On the downside, the broken resistance at $5.50 is a decent support along with the 21 SMA. Below $5.50, the price is likely to retest the $5.00 support region. The most important support and a pivot region is $4.70.

Top Gainers

During the last 7 days, a few small cap altcoins gained more than 100%, including XET, NTK, ONG, ETN, GPKR, OCC, PAT, MLM and CNET (trading volume more than $50K). Out of these, NTK and ONG rallied close to 300%.

To sum up, bitcoin is slowly climbing higher above the $6,700 level. Having said that, BTC/USD must break the $6,800 and $6,960 resistance levels to gain bullish momentum. If not, there could be a fresh bearish reaction, which is likely to weigh on altcoins like Ethereum, EOS, litecoin, ripple, neo, bitcoin cash, binance coin, ICX, WAN and XLM.
