• BTC/USD recovers from recent lows, but the upside is limited.
  • ETH/USD capped by strong resistance area.
  • XRP/USD gained 3.5%, but bulls seem to be exhausted.

Bitcoin and all major altcoins are recovering from the lows reached during Wednesday trading. Considering the deeply oversold stance of cryptocurrency market that lost  $50B of its total value in a week's time, the upside qualifies for a healthy correction. The news that another Swiss Bank opened its doors to clients with digital assets and positive comments from crypto influencers acted as an extra incentive.
