After struggling to settle above the $19,500 resistance, the Bitcoin price corrected the upside. BTC has fallen below $19,300 and is below the 50-hour simple moving average. It seems that the price is following the downtrend line with the $19,100 resistance on the hourly chart.
A clear move above the trendline can take the price to the $19,330 resistance level. The next major resistance level is near $19,620, at which the price can move quickly.
On the other hand, the initial support level is near the $18,780 level. The next major support is near the $18,380 zone, below which the price may even test the $18,000 support zone.
The Ethereum price has made several attempts to sustain above the $1,380 level and the 50-hour simple moving average. However, ETH failed and began to decline slowly. There was a move below the $1,350 level. The next major support is $1,310, below which could return to $1,275.
In the opposite direction, the price is facing resistance near the $1,345 level. The next major resistance level is currently forming near the $1,390 and $1,410 levels, above which the price may move to a more positive zone.
