Tuesday was a tough day for most major cryptos, as rising US yields and USD price put pressure on the cryptocurrency market. Bitcoin traded as low as $41,220 on Tuesday, precariously close to its $41,000 support before rising again late on Tuesday. If the price of Bitcoin goes up, it may find resistance at $44,300, while if it declines, support may be found at the $41,000 level and further down at $40,000. Bitcoin holders now face a dilemma, as 30% of the BTC supply is held at a loss, which may put pressure to sell, although in the past this position was successfully defended by Bitcoin bulls. 

Ethereum crashed on Tuesday, going as low as $3,079 from approximately $3,230 at the start of the day but started rising again late on Tuesday evening. In case its price goes up, it may find resistance around $3,400, while the psychological level of $3,000 may provide support if it falls.

The position of BTC and ETH is precarious at the moment, as most traders believe it may go either way. If an impulse to sell is triggered, major cryptos may face heavy losses, but if the bulls prevail, we may soon see prices rising again.
