Nevertheless, Bitcoin price remains broadly in an uptrend and could head higher as the Relative Strength Index (RSI) suggests bulls still have control. Its position at 60 points to a strong momentum, bolstered by the trajectory of the Simple Moving Averages (SMAs) that show upward is the path with the least resistance. Also, the Awesome Oscillator (AO) is still in positive territory, adding credence to the bullish thesis.

If the bulls can add to their buying power, Bitcoin price could extend past the $38,000 psychological level before overcoming the range high of $38,450 and tag the $40,000 psychological level.

On the other hand, if sellers overpower the bulls, Bitcoin price could drop toward the $35,935 support level or even test the 50-day SMA at $34,317. Failure of this buyer congestion level to hold could see BTC descend to the $32,000 level.

Ethereum price defends $2,029 support level

Ethereum (ETH) price is holding above the $2,029 support level and must defend this position lest it tumble back into the supply zone turned bullish breaker. According to experts, its upside potential is capped at $2,500.

If the bulls can up their game, the largest altcoin by market capitalization could extend northward, breaking past $2,100 to tag the $2,136 range high.

Conversely, if selling pressure increases, Ethereum price could lose $2,029 support, falling deep into the midline at $1,935. A break and close below this level would confirm the continuation of the downtrend, with ETH likely to test the confluence between the 50-day SMA and the lower boundary of the order block at $1,862.

Ripple price is at an inflection point

Ripple (XRP) price is at a crossroads, torn between heading north to breach the critical supply barrier and tagging $0.7000 or moving south. In the latter event, BTC could lose the 50-day SMA at $0.6040 before falling below the $0.5773 support level.

A bullish catalyst could send Ripple price north to the supply zone stretching from $0.6572 to $0.7161.

On the flipside, enhanced seller momentum could send Ripple price south, potentially going as low as the 200-day SMA at $0.5549. In a worse case,, the 100-day SMA at $0.5497 might be tested. Such a move would constitute a 10% fall below current levels.
