This move comes as bulls once again attempted to breach the $31,500 resistance point, however as on Monday, to no avail.

As of writing, the world’s largest cryptocurrency is now trading at $30,218.01, which is still 2.5% higher than yesterday’s bottom.

However, with bulls likely closing out earlier positions, today’s gains have gradually eased, with the likelihood of prices dropping below $30,000 still on the cards.

Ethereum

ETH, which has also been hovering below a key price point of its own, today rose beyond that level.

The world’s second-largest crypto token fell to an intraday low of $1,729.41 on Tuesday, however hump-day has seen prices peak at $1,862.91.

This surge, which sent ethereum back above $1,800, was nearly 4% higher than yesterday’s low, however it was not enough to keep bearish sentiment away.
