Binance Coin (BNB) topped near the USD 680 level before it started a downside correction. BNB declined below USD 650 and it is now trading near USD 635. If there are more downsides, the price could test the USD 615 support. The next major support sits at USD 600.
Cardano (ADA) failed to clear the USD 1.385 and USD 1.400 resistance levels. As a result, there was a bearish reaction below the USD 1.320 support. The price even broke the USD 1.300 support and it seems like it might continue to move down towards the USD 1.280 support.
Dogecoin (DOGE) remained elevated and it cleared the USD 0.385 resistance. DOGE even surged above USD 0.400 and tested USD 0.420. If there is a close above USD 0.420, the price might rise further towards the USD 0.445 and USD 0.450 resistance levels.
