Bitcoin, Ethereum, Ripple, EOS, Litecoin, Bitcoin Cash, Binance Coin, Stellar, Cardano, TRON

Bitcoin has closed in the green for the second consecutive month. This is the first such instance since December 2017, which indicates buying at lower levels. However, right now the action is in altcoins. Traders are piling on select altcoins and the positive sentiment is rubbing on to the leading digital currency. In the current recovery, Bitcoin’s dominance has been steadily decreasing, which is now at 50.1 percent.Bitcoin (BTC) is inching towards the overhead resistance of $4,255. The bulls have failed to break out of this resistance twice earlier, hence, we expect the bears to defend this level with full force.
Though Ethereum (ETH) closed above $144.78 on March 29, the bulls could not sustain the higher levels. However, the bullish sign is that the digital currency is trying to rebound from the 20-day EMA. If it can break out of $144.78 this time, a quick move to $167.32 is possible.

Litecoin (LTC) is facing stiff resistance at $61.9044. Repeated attempts by the bulls to scale this level have failed. Traders can book profits on 40 percent of the remaining long positions above $60 and keep the stop loss on the rest at $55.

Tron (TRX) is currently attempting to break out of the moving averages and the downtrend line. If the bulls sustain this breakout, the price can rally to the next overhead resistance of $0.02815521. This is a critical resistance as the price has repeatedly returned from it. Notwithstanding, if the bulls scale above it, a new uptrend is likely to start that can carry the digital currency to $0.040 and above it to $0.0480.
