Apart from a brief spike to above $11,500, Bitcoin has remained relatively calm around $11,400 in the past 24 hours. Most alternative coins have marked minor losses, with Ethereum dipping below $380 and Ripple beneath $0.25.
Bitcoin Stays Around $11,400
As reported yesterday, Bitcoin traded around $11,400, despite US President Donald Trump’s call for additional economic stimulus. In the past 24 hours, BTC initiated a leg up towards its daily high of $11,550 (on Binance).
However, the increase was rather shortlived, and Bitcoin headed south quickly. In the following hours, the primary cryptocurrency charted its intraday low at beneath $11,300.
Bitcoin has managed to reclaim some ground since then and has spiked back up to a familiar level – hovering around $11,400.
The technical indicators behind Bitcoin suggest that the asset could rely on the support lines at $11,200, $11,050, and $10,930 in case of a price breakdown. Alternatively, the first resistance levels within its side if BTC heads upwards are $11,464 and $11,600.
The three most prominent US stock indexes ended yesterday’s trading session with declines between 0.6% – 0.8%. Given Bitcoin’s increased correlation with Wall Street as of late, these developments could suggest a short-term price drop for BTC as well.
Altcoins In The Red
As seen on the graph below, red dominates most of the market. Ethereum has failed to sustain its current bullish run, which drove it above $385 a few days ago. ETH trades below $380, after another 1% drop.
Bitcoin Cash and BINANCE Coin are the only exceptions from the top 10 with minor gains.
In contrast, ABBC Coin has gained the most on a 24-hour scale – 36%. Reserve Rights follows with a 16% spike.
