Ethereum price followed bitcoin and gained pace above the USD 1,000 and USD 1,020 resistance levels. ETH even cleared USD 1,100 and it is showing bullish signs. A close above the USD 1,140 and USD 1,150 levels might clear the path for a move towards the USD 1,200 and USD 1,220 levels.

Bitcoin cash, litecoin and XRP price
Bitcoin cash price remained stable above USD 400 and it started a steady increase above the USD 420 resistance. BCH is trading above the USD 425 level and it could attempt a break above the USD 432 resistance. If there is a close above USD 432, the next key stop for the bulls may possibly be near the USD 450 level.
Litecoin (LTC) is up over 8% and it broke the USD 158 and USD 160 resistance levels. LTC is now trading comfortably above USD 160 and it might extend its rise towards the USD 168 and USD 170 levels. Any more gains might lead the price towards the USD 185 level.
XRP price is underperforming and it is struggling to gain momentum above USD 0.235. The main breakout resistance is still near the USD 0.250 level. As long as the price is below USD 0.250, there is a risk of a larger decline in the coming sessions.
