Bitcoin (BTC) resonated with the bearish market sentiment to close the day around $33,000 noting a 3.8 per cent decline in the last 24 hours. Having touched the $35,000 mark briefly early this week, BTC is struggling to avoid the sub $33,000 levels. However, daily BTC trading volume saw a rise of over 4 per cent indicating an increase in buyer interest. An extended rally could push BTC to test resistance at $37,000 in the coming week. On the lower side, BTC has support at the $32,450 and $31,500 levels.

The global crypto market cap is now at $1.35T after registering a notable drop of 4 per cent in the 24 hours ending at 9 am IST. The total crypto market volume marked an 8 per cent decrease. BTC continues to dominate the market cap with a 45.5 per cent share.

Ethereum (ETH) broke its relief rally to record a 6.3 per cent decline while plunging below $2,100. On the upside, ETH is not far from breaking its resistance level of $2,250 to explore upward movements as it nears its EIP-1559 July blockchain update. On the downside, ETH will see support close to $2,090 and $2,040 pivot point levels.

Other top cryptocurrencies such as Cardano (ADA), Ripple (XRP), Binance Coin (BNB), Polkadot (DOT) and Chainlink (LINK) continued to show a downward trend with up to 6 per cent drop today. As the weekend arrives, selling pressure is expected to persist and possibly drive crypto prices down further.
