In the short term, a price drop is possible to the area of $10,100, where most of the liquidity is focused.

Bitcoin is trading at $11,347 at press time.


Chainlink (LINK) is the main looser from our list, as the rate of the altcoin has dropped by 0.32% over the previous 24 hours.

From the technical point of view, the ongoing decline has not finished yet because volume, as well as liquidity, is not enough for a reversal. Thus, one may notice a bearish divergence on the Relative Strength Index indicator. All in all, traders may see Chainlink (LINK) trading at around $9.22 soon.

Chainlink is trading at $10.65 at press time.


Polkadot (DOT) has gained a few points since yesterday; however, the rate of the coin has dropped by almost 9% over the last 7 days.

On the daily time frame, Polkadot (DOT) is not ready to switch to a bullish wave and keep the growth. Most likely, the decrease may continue to the support zone of $3.57, followed by a price blast to $5.10. Such a scenario is relevant until the end of the current month.

Polkadot is trading at $3.94 at press time.


Cardano (ADA) is the top gainer today as the price change since yesterday has constituted 2.75%.

Cardano (ADA) has bounced off the support of the rising channel, having confirmed the growth potential. A further rise is more likely than a drop as the liquidity is concentrated above $0.12. In this case, the endpoint of the current growth may be the support at $0.1237.

Cardano is trading at $0.1066 at press time.


Tron (TRX) has also located in the bullish zone over the last day. However, it has not shown such a big price rise as Cardano (ADA).
