• All major coins are in a green zone, most of them showing double-digit gains.
  • Dash is the best-performer with 24% of gains.

The cryptocurrency market is flashing with green colors. After a period of slow range-bound trading, Bitcoin and all major altcoins resumed the recovery and moved towards critical resistance levels. The total market capitalization has reached $161 billion. The average daily trading volumes settled at $134 billion. Bitcoin's market share has recovered to 64.9%

Top-3 coins price overview:

Bitcoin hit $5,922 ahead of US opening, which is the highest level since March 15; however, the critical $6,000 remains untouched as of yet. Once this area is broken, the upside momentum will increase exponentially. The first digital coin has gained nearly 12% on a day-to-day basis, while a sustainable move below SMA200 1-hour has improved the short-term technical picture.
