Today, one can expect repeated attempts to break through the 50 percent Fibonacci level. If successful, a retest of the $12,300 level is possible. If the bears push below $11,000, then the price will roll back to the support of $10,500.

Bitcoin is trading at $11,310 at press time.


Buyers continued the Ethereum (ETH) price recovery yesterday. They managed to test the level of $400, but so far they have not been able to gain a foothold above this psychological level.
