Bitcoin price failed to surpass the USD 10,800 resistance, resulting in a fresh bearish wave. BTC traded below the USD 10,650 support and it even tested the USD 10,550 support zone. The price is currently (08:30 UTC) consolidating losses above USD 10,550 and remains at a risk of more losses.
Similarly, most major altcoins retreated from important hurdles and started a fresh decline, including ethereum, XRP, litecoin, bitcoin cash, EOS, XLM, LINK, BNB, TRX, and ADA. ETH/USD declined sharply from the USD 355 resistance and it tested the USD 335 support. XRP/USD trimmed all its yesterday’s gains and settled below the USD 0.250 pivot level.
After another failed attempt near USD 10,800, bitcoin price started a fresh decline. The bears were able to push BTC below USD 10,650, but the bulls defended the USD 10,550 support. The price is currently consolidating losses, with an immediate resistance at USD 10,680. The key resistance is still near the USD 10,800 level.
If the price fails to recover higher, there are chances of more downsides below the USD 10,550 support. In this case, the bears might aim a test of the USD 10,250 support.

Momentum is a general term used to describe the speed at which prices move over a given time period. Generally, changes in momentum tend to lead to changes in prices. This expert shows the current values of four popular momentum indicators.
One method of interpreting the Stochastic Oscillator is looking for overbought areas (above 80) and oversold areas (below 20). The Stochastic Oscillator is 54.1393. This is not an overbought or oversold reading. The last signal was a sell 9 period(s) ago.
Relative Strength Index (RSI)
The RSI shows overbought (above 70) and oversold (below 30) areas. The current value of the RSI is 48.63. This is not a topping or bottoming area. A buy or sell signal is generated when the RSI moves out of an overbought/oversold area. The last signal was a sell 62 period(s) ago.
Commodity Channel Index (CCI)
The CCI shows overbought (above 100) and oversold (below -100) areas. The current value of the CCI is -16. This is not a topping or bottoming area. The last signal was a sell 18 period(s) ago.
