Tracing a bearish trendline, yesterday Bitcoin tumbled below $11000 breaking major support levels. It even tested the support level at $10,799.01 and then corrected upwards. Bitcoin since then is recovering its price, though is yet to get stability above $11000.

Meanwhile, XRP also faced a gradual price drop yesterday, in which it went as low as $0.39 twice forming a double bottom. However, today, XRP has started to move upwards and is currently trading above $0.40 after surging as high as $0.4188.


XRP is currently facing resistance above $0.40. If it manages to surge further clearing the price barrier, it may see resistance at $0.4182 and $0.44. XRP bulls need to push the price above $0.42 with stability, in order to surge higher. Though a price dip below 0.39 in XRP can take it to the support levels of $0.3855 and $0.3746.

BTC price, which is currently trading on a bearish note, can see support levels at $10,351.32 and $9,885.48. It may face resistance at $11,730.69 and $12,644.22 if it goes for an uptrend.
