Bitcoin and other major cryptocurrencies soared massively on Sunday. The bullish pressure also spilled into the new week with BTC/USD reclaiming the ground above $10,000. An intraday high has been traded at $10,334. A minor adjustment has pushed the price lower to $10,278 but the trend remains strongly bullish which means it is only a matter of time before Bitcoin takes down the hurdle at $10,500.
ETH/USD has followed closely in Bitcoin’s footsteps with gains of more than 4.5% on the day. The trading on Sunday was successful enough to breach the barrier at $300. Ethereum has extended the action above $300 but stalled before rising to $350. At the time of writing, Ether is doddering at $236 amid a gradually building bullish momentum.
Ripple, on the other hand, cemented its position above $0.20. In addition, the bullish wave pushed it above the seller congestion zones at $0.21 and $0.22 respectively. At the moment, $0.22 is the initial resistance following a minor adjustment to $0.2171 (prevailing market value). With the trend still bullish, a return above $0.20 lingers.
