The altcoin market is patiently waiting for Bitcoin price to break above the current resistance level to continue rallying. From a technical standpoint, a breakout from the current level will send Bitcoin price above $18k to retest the $18,500 psychological resistance zone.
Altcoins to Keep a Close Watch
Following a volatile weekend and Monday, most of the crypto assets have consolidated if not retracted on Tuesday. For instance, Cardano (ADA) and Solana (SOL) have dropped approximately 3 percent in the past 24 hours. Nonetheless, Lido DAO (LDO) has risen 64 percent and 3 percent in the past seven days and 24 hours respectively.
