Bitcoin price has mostly remained in a small range below the $ 11,500 and $ 11,550 resistance levels. Bitcoin appears to be consolidating above the $ 11,250 support level and appears to be preparing for the next move. The price is currently trading (13:00 UTC) well above $ 11,250 and should clear $ 11,550 to make a steady increase.

In the past two sessions, the Bitcoin price traded mostly in a range above the $ 11,250 and $ 11,200 support levels. Bitcoin is moving higher towards $ 11,400, but it could face strong resistance near the $ 11,500 and $ 11,550 levels.
On the downside, the USD 11,250 and USD 11,200 levels are significant. A clear breakout below $ 11,200 could open the door to a sharp drop and an extended correction.
Ethereum price initiated a downward correction below $ 380 and continued its decline below $ 375. Ethereum is testing the $ 370 level and showing some bearish signals. The major support is forming on the downside near the USD 365 level.
On the upside, support for the latest range near $ 380 could be resistance. A clear breakout above the $ 380 level might push the price towards the $ 392 resistance.
Bitcoin Cash and ChainLink price
Bitcoin Cash is up 2% and is trading near the USD 260 level. There is a major immediate hurdle to Bitcoin Cash near $ 265, above which the price may continue to rise towards the $ 280 level. If there is a downward correction, the price may find support near the $ 250 level.
Chainlink is moving lower and even rose below the $ 10.50 support level. The bears appear to be targeting a test of the USD 10.00 support level. Medium support is found near the USD 10.20 level. To start a new rally, the price must rise at a pace above $ 10.95 - $ 11.00.
Ripple extended its decline after settling below $ 0.250. The bulls also struggled to protect the $ 0.245 support, but the downsides were limited. Any further losses could push the price towards $ 0.242. If there is a fresh increase, $ 0.250 could be an obstacle for the bulls.
