Bitcoin and Ethereum broke above crucial obstacles and will seek to advance further to strengthen the position above $ 9,600 and $ 275, respectively
Bitcoin rose above $ 9,600, while Ethereum rose to $ 275, with the green cryptocurrency market early Thursday morning. This represented Ethereum’s highest price level since the mid-March collapse – a period when bears restricted prices below $ 246.
Other major currencies that have seen significant increases in the past 24 hours include XRP (+ 3.6%), Bitcoin Cash (+ 4.5%), Litecoin (+ 3.9%), IOTA (6%) and TRON ( + 3%). ChainLink also appreciated more than 7% to continue its remarkable performance in the market.
Bitcoin price movements
The BTC / USD pair broke above $ 9,600 for the first time in weeks and optimism is back on attempts to break $ 10,000 again.
The rise from $ 9,391 to $ 9,600 means that bulls could rise to $ 9,700, with a potential break above $ 9,780, moving buyers to a new price test close to $ 10,000, psychologically significant. However, the positive side faces a major obstacle, with 61.8% Fibonacci at $ 9,811.84.
It is likely, therefore, that bulls initially fail to consolidate and move into the aforementioned price zone.
If that happens, subsequent BTC / USD declines will be supported immediately at the 38.2% retracement level of Fibonacci and SMA 50 and SMA 20 found at $ 9,263 and $ 9,372.

Ethereum price analysis
The ETH / USD pair has risen more than 9% in the past 24 hours and is currently trading at around $ 269, after exceeding $ 275.
Ethereum bulls are trying to gain momentum for a rise above $ 246 and yesterday’s pump presented that opportunity; The ETH / USD pair crossed two main barriers – the psychological $ 250 and the biggest resistance, $ 260.
So far, Ethereum bulls are in control, with prices above $ 264. A return visit of $ 280, therefore, will be possible in the coming days.
The area may be difficult to overcome, but buyers can be encouraged by the MACD which is printing a bullish divergence on the daily chart.

The RSI is in a slight decline, moving away from its overbought territory. Buyers therefore want to establish a position above $ 260. An immediate reversal will cause buyers to seek to defend $ 250, as this means that they keep the opportunity to rise further in the coming days. A drop in that level means that prices can reach $ 245.
