Bitcoin price remained strong above the USD 46,500 support zone. BTC is currently (11:45 UTC) trading in a range below the USD 48,000 resistance and it could aim for more upsides. In the stated scenario, the bulls might attempt a test of the USD 50,000 resistance.
Besides, most major altcoins are gaining pace, too. ETH has risen above the USD 2,220 level and it could surge if there is a close above USD 2,320. XRP is also appreciating, but it is facing resistance near USD 1.35. DOGE gained traction above USD 0.32 and USD 0.34.

ADA, LTC, DOGE, and XRP price
Cardano (ADA) is facing resistance near the USD 1.20 level. It seems like ADA could correct lower and test the USD 1.05 support zone. The main support is now forming near USD 1.00. Conversely, a clear break above USD 1.20 may possibly clear the path for a move towards the USD 1.32 level.
Litecoin (LTC) is slowly rising and it could clear the USD 188 resistance. The next resistance is at USD 195, followed by the breakout zone at USD 200. If the bulls manage to gain strength above USD 200, the price could rally to USD 220. On the downside, the USD 180 level is an immediate support, followed by USD 178.

XRP price spiked above the USD 1.30 resistance level before correcting lower. It is now consolidating gains and trading well above the USD 1.25 support. The main breakdown support is now forming near USD 1.20. On the upside, the price could rally to USD 1.45 if it clears USD 1.32.
