After a close below USD 40,000, bitcoin price struggled to recover. BTC extended its decline below USD 38,500 and it even broke USD 38,000. The bulls are now protecting the USD 37,500 support.

Ethereum price also declined below USD 2,550. ETH tested the USD 2,450 support and it is now struggling to recover losses. If there is a downside break below USD 2,450, the price may possibly test the USD 2,400 support.

ADA, LTC, DOGE, and XRP price
Cardano (ADA) is recovering and it is trading above the USD 1.32 resistance. An immediate resistance is near USD 1.35. A successful follow up move above USD 1.35 might lead the price towards the key USD 1.40 resistance. On the downside, the bulls might remain active near USD 1.32 and USD 1.30.
