The cryptocurrency market keeps recovering and has added another $10 billion to its capitalization since yesterday. Bitcoin (BTC) changes hands around $10,700, while some large altcoins register significant gains.
Bitcoin Price Trades Around $10,700
After yesterday’s surge in which Bitcoin topped at $10,800, the king crypto coin retraced to its intraday bottom at around $10,550. Still, the bulls cut off the price drop and led the asset upwards once again.
As far as 2020 goes, this Bitcoin increase followed the 1 to 2 percent gains registered on Wall Street at the Friday trading session. The S&P 500 – up 1.6 percent – the Dow Jones Industrial Average – up 1.34 percent – and the Nasdaq Composite – up 2.26 percent – were all in the green.
At the time of the press, BTC has dropped to $10,760 after encountering rejection at the first critical resistance at $10,790. According to analysts, in case Bitcoin price breaks above, it could head towards the next resistance at $11,000, then to the ones at $11,200, $11,360, and $11,530, respectively.
On the other hand, if the asset dips, it could depend on the support levels at $10,580, $10,440, and $10,390, if necessary.
In spite of stocks and cryptocurrencies rising, gold hasn’t seen an increase in price as of yet; it recorded an intraday high of $1,875, but then it dived and closed the session at $1,860.
Altcoins Gain Traction
Some altcoins lost major bunches of value lately, but they have started rebounding in the last few days. Ethereum has continued its upward pattern with another 3 percent increase to above $350.
Ripple price grew by 5 percent to $0.243, Bitcoin Cash increased by 1 percent, Polkadot by 3 percent, Binance Coin by 1 percent, and Litecoin by 3 percent as well. These assets from the top 10 are all in the green. Still, Chainlink has surpassed their surge by making an 11 percent increase. LINK has overtaken BNB and DOT and currently sits on the 6th spot.
