Bitcoin’s price gained traction above the $18,200 level and helped ETH to surpass the $550 resistance. There was also a break above the key bearish trend line with the resistance at the $540 level on the hourly charts of the pair. There was also a break above the 50% fib retracement level from the decline at $623 swing high to $478 low. A clear break above the $590 level will open the doors for even more gains above this level and the price could even revisit the $620 resistance or the $623 swing high in the near-term.

Further losses could lead to the $530 support level.
