Rajagopal Menon, VP, WazirX said "Bitcoin is currently priced at $67,755, reflecting a modest 0.51% increase over the last 24 hours. Despite this uptick, it faces resistance at the $70,000 threshold attributed to constrained purchasing power and diminished investor participation. Institutional investors are reallocating capital from Bitcoin ETFs to alternative assets, eroding support and undermining potential breakthroughs beyond this psychological barrier."

He further mentioned, "Technical analysis indicates that the daily MACD shows weakening momentum in bearish territory, while the BTC/USD daily RSI has dipped below the 50 level, signaling a neutral stance. The 10-day Exponential Moving Average (EMA) suggests a "Sell" signal at $68,676, whereas the 200-day EMA indicates a "Buy" signal at $57,180. Similarly, the 10-day Simple Moving Average (SMA) indicates a "Sell" signal at $69,353, with the 200-day SMA suggesting a "Buy" at $56,214."

He added, "Ethereum's current trading price hovers near $3,500, marking a significant decline from its recent peak of $3,800, which has caught many traders off guard. This downward movement follows a period of consolidation, reflecting market uncertainty influenced by liquidity concerns, broader macroeconomic conditions, and the recent downturn in Bitcoin."

At last, "Solana exhibited a strong recovery, surging 5% to reach $155 today. The cryptocurrency experienced heightened inflows and increased activity in decentralized finance (DeFi). Daily trading volumes rose by 1.5%, underscoring Solana's robust growth momentum. With a market capitalization of $71.5 billion, Solana continues to lead bullish trends, surpassing market performance expectations and bolstering positive investor sentiment."
