BTC has already started to rebound from its previous lows, with the price now trading at $23,820.98 at the time of writing.


Ethereum (ETH) losses were more on the downside, with the price trading relatively close to the $1,700 mark.

The decline failed to break out of the ceiling with the RSI at 60.00. It is currently tracking at 58.90.

However, on a positive note, the 10-day (red) moving average is no longer downtrending, with a bullish upside crossover likely to be on the cards.

Should this happen, there is a strong possibility that Ethereum will not only move back above $1,700, but potentially closer to $1,800.
