Bitcoin rose to a nearly three-week high earlier this week, but fell to an intraday low of $29,501.59 on Thursday.

Today’s action appears to have moved the price below the recent resistance level of $30,500 and now moving towards the $28,600 bottom Looks like.
However, this decline is likely to extend as bearish pressure builds.
The reason for this intermediate support is likely the result of the 14-day RSI consolidating support at 44.
After its own recent highs,ETHfell below $2,000 on Wednesday, and this decline will only get worse as the week progresses.
ETH/USD fell below $1,800 on Thursday, hitting an intraday low of $1,776.05 in the process.
Like Bitcoin,ETHhas fallen below its ceiling as prices plummeted, and support at $1,715 is now a prime target for market bears.

The 14-day RSI is also in bottom territory, and if it holds, bullish expectations for a strong month of June are not entirely lost.
