A rather strong bearish momentum pulled the pair back below the average price level tonight, and sellers tested the $46,000 support. In the morning, the price bounced off this support level and is consolidating around the two-hour moving average EMA55. If at the beginning of this week the bearish momentum is repeated, then the decline may reach $44,000. If the level of average prices restrains the onslaught of sellers, the pair will recover to the area of $​​49,000.

Bitcoin is trading at $47,892 at press time.

Nevertheless, the bears pushed through this strong support tonight and set a local minimum at $1,660. In the morning, the price bounced to the area of ​​$1,720 and is trying to continue recovery in the area of ​​the moving average EMA55.

The level of average prices has suspended the pair’s decline thus far and does not allow sellers to test the psychological mark of $0.50. However, today bears may intensify the onslaught and bring the price of the coin back below $0.50.

If the psychological support at the level of $0.50 holds, then in the first half of the week, the pair might be able to recover to the zone of recent highs.

XRP is trading at $0.57 at press time.
