After declining below the USD 21,000 level, BTC stayed above the USD 20,500 support zone and managed to surpass USD 21,000 again. It is currently (11:47 UTC) trading in a range near USD 21,000 and is down almost 2% in a day and up 2% in a week.
Similarly, most major altcoins are stuck above key supports. ETH is back above USD 1,200 but faces hurdles near USD 1,250. XRP is now trading just below the USD 0.35 pivot level. ADA is still at a risk of more losses unless it reclaims USD 0.50.

“As we approach the end of June, USD 2.5bn in open interest of BTC options expired last week bringing volatility across the asset class. All eyes will be on the next meeting of the Federal Reserve and with current indications pointing to a possible increase in the interest rate, it’s likely that risk assets like cryptocurrency could continue to slide. Typically, crypto is the first to sell-off, followed by the wider global equities markets,” Steve Gregory, CEO of the Currency.com exchange, said.
Ethereum price traded below the USD 1,200 support zone. ETH found support near the USD 1,160 level and stayed above the USD 1,150 support.
