Bitcoin price faces weak resistance ahead as bulls keep the momentum
On the daily chart, the uptrend has been kept intact and Bitcoin held the key support level at $53,700, the 26-EMA. This moving average has served as an accurate guide for the bulls throughout this recent bull rally.

The only resistance point is the previous all-time high of $61,844. A breakout above this point should swiftly drive Bitcoin price towards $70,000 and up to $76,200 at the 127.2% Fibonacci level.
On the other hand, losing the key 26-EMA support level at $53,650 would push Bitcoin price down to at least $50,450 at the 78.6% Fibonacci Retracement level and as low as $41,554.
Ethereum price remains flat in the short-term
In the past week, Ethereum has been trading sideways but remains contained inside an ascending broadening wedge pattern on the 12-hour chart. There is a critical support level at $1,700 which coincides with the 50-SMA and the 100-SMA levels.
ETH/USD 12-hour chart
Holding this key support point should push Ethereum higher. The short-term resistance is located at $1,944, a breakout above this level should push ETH towards the all-time high of $2,042. Further than that, the next price target would be the top trendline of the pattern at $2,423.
On the other hand, a breakdown below the key support level at $1,700 would drive Ethereum price down to the lower boundary of the pattern at $1,520.
Ripple price hits a robust barrier once again
XRP has been rejected from a key resistance level at $0.488 several times in the past month. On the 12-hour chart, the digital asset formed an ascending triangle pattern.
XRP/USD 12-hour chart
A breakdown below the lower trendline support at $0.444 will drive Ripple price down to $0.36. However, if bulls can finally crack the key resistance level of $0.488, the digital asset will quickly explode towards a high of $0.581.
