BTC/USD is trading at $10,851 but attempted to crack $11,000 again unsuccessfully. The bearish rejection is not too strong and the price can still establish a daily bull flag.

ETH/USD established a new higher high but also got rejected from $394. It is currently bouncing off the 12-EMA on the daily chart.

XRP/USD slipped below $0.25 following the rejection from the 26-EMA at $0.255. Bulls will now look to set a new higher low and possibly continue with the short-term uptrend.
