Crypto market update

Meanwhile, the cryptocurrency market is becoming bullish at the time of writing. Buyers are working extremely hard to clear the short term hurdles that have continued to keep them away from the desired gains since Monday.

For instance, Bitcoin has moved above the confluence resistance discussed earlier in the day at $8,878. The crypto is trading at $8,920 after adjusting a higher 0.88% on the day. The short term target is breaking the resistance at $9,000 which will help shift the focus to $10,000.

Ethereum has not been left behind and like Bitcoin is improving the technical picture. The price is up 1.46% on the day to trade at $203. Over the last 24 hours, ETH/USD has sustained the trend above the initial support at $200.

Ripple on the other hand, is working hard to break the resistance zone at $0.20. Since Monday, it has not been easy to sustain the price above $0.1950. On the downside, support at $0.19 has kept the bearish pressure in check. A break above $0.20 could once again renew the momentum targeting $0.30.
