The crypto markets are back up after a weekend of consolidation. The crypto board is green and assets are gaining from the market upsurge during the Asian trading session.
The market capitalization is now at $175 Billion, up by $3 Billion from yesterday. The volume is going back up from a low weekend performance and is currently at $39 Billion at the time of this writing. Coincidentally, the BTC dominance falls a notch at 51.9% as altcoins begin to ramp up this Monday morning.
Bitcoin is currently trading at $5161, up by 1.47% since our last market recap. It has surged earlier and has successfully handled a strong resistance at $5130 but is capped at $5200 and retreated to its current price. On the upside, the next resistance is at $5500 while the support is at $5100.
Ethereum went for a surge earlier but was rejected at $170. It is trading at $166.42 at the time of this writing and gaining 1.58% on the day. Its volume is shaping nicely and is now above $5 Billion. It should be able to maintain a positive momentum above $165. It is set to conquest the price resistance at $180 in the short term. On the downside, the second coin is still very much tied to the market movement and a shift downward can bring it crashing down its nearest support level at $160. XRP, the third coin on the market cap list is the slowest moving asset on the Top 10 (apart from Tether) today with a 0.37% gain on the day. It is currently trading at $0.327 with resistance at $0.0335 and support at $0.327.
