Bitcoin has reclaimed the $30,000 price tag after another brief drop beneath it yesterday. Most alternative coins have also bounced off the lows as ETH has neared $1,300, while UNI jumped to a new all-time high.
Bitcoin Swings Around The $30K
Following an unsuccessful attempt to overcome $35,000 earlier this week, bitcoin started to gradually decrease in value. The adverse movements culminated in another price drop beneath the psychological $30,000 level, as CryptoPotato reported yesterday.
Shortly after the dip, though, the bulls took charge and drove the asset upwards. Following a few rejections, the cryptocurrency finally managed to reclaim $30,000 and currently trades just north of $31,000.
From a technical perspective, BTC’s most significant support level remains at $30,000. Should the asset break down below it once more, the following ones are at $29,630, $28,500, and $28,000.
Alternatively, if bitcoin resumes its bull run, it would have to overcome the resistance lines at $32,500, $33,100, and $34,000.

However, the Nasdaq futures contracts have added 1% after hours, while the Dow and the S&P 500 have continued with indecisive movements.
Stagnant Altcoins, Exploding UNI
Most alternative coins also dipped in value similarly to bitcoin yesterday. On a 24-hour scale, though, most top ten coins have shown signs of recovery.
Ethereum is slightly up but still trades around $1270. Binance Coin (1.7%), Polkadot (3%), Cardano, and Litecoin (1%) are essentially at the same price spot as yesterday.
Chainlink is the most significant gainer from the top ten with an 8% surge to $23.3. In contrast, XRP and BCH have lost the most and are down to $0.25 and $387, respectively.
