At the time of writing, BTC/USD is changing hands at $9,870, having recovered from the intraday low registered at $9,600. The first digital coin has lost about 3.5% of its value in recent 24 hours and settled below critical $10,000 amid high market volatility.

Ethereum, the second-largest digital asset with the current market capitalization of $22.4 billion has lost over 3% in recent 24 hours and 1.7% since the beginning of the day to trade at $208.87. A strong growth above critical $200.00 improved the longer-term technical picture; however, we will need to see a recovery above $210.00 to mitigate the immediate bearish pressure.

Ripple's XRP dropped below critical $0.30 amid strong technical correction from the intraday high of $0.3127. The coin is down 6% since the beginning of the day and 2% in recent 24 hours.
