Top-3 coins price overview

Bitcoin (BTC/USD) struggled to gather enough strength to test the $12,000 handle on Saturday and closed the day with a gain of 2.2%. On Sunday, the pair is fluctuating in an extremely tight range and was last seen trading at $11,250, where it was virtually unchanged on a daily basis. Critical near-term technical levels for the pair could be seen at $11,500 (Fibo 38.2% retracement of June rally) and $12,000 (Jul. 3/Jul. 4 high)  on the upside, $10,750 (Fibo 50% retracement of June rally) and $10,000 (psychological level) on the downside.

After inching closer to the critical $300 mark, Ethereum (ETH/USD) finished the day virtually unchanged on Saturday at $288. Today, the pair is having a difficult time finding direction and is staying close to yesterday's closing level. With a break above $300 area (psychological level/Fibo 50% retracement of June rally/20-day SMA) the pair could start a fresh leg up. On the downside, $280 (Fibo 61.8% retracement of June rally) could be seen as the initial support.
