Ethereum moved back above $2,100 on Tuesday, as markets reacted to the latest gross domestic product (GDP) report from China. Chinese GDP rose by 4.5% during the first quarter of the year, higher than the 4% expected. Bitcoin rebounded from earlier losses.


Bitcoin (BTC) rebounded from a one-week low on Tuesday, as markets reacted to the latest gross domestic product (GDP) report from China.

BTC/USD dropped to a low of $29,154.85 earlier in today’s session, before climbing to a peak of $29,944.78 as the day matured.

The low sent bitcoin to its lowest point since April 10, which is when price was last below $29,000.

Looking at the chart, the rebound has come as the 14-day relative strength index (RSI) bounced from a floor of 59.00.

Currently, price strength is tracking at the 61.91 mark, with the next visible ceiling at the 65.00 level.

BTC will likely be trading above $30,200 should the RSI reach this upcoming destination.


Ethereum (ETH) was back above the $2,100 level in today’s session, as the token remains near an eleven-month high.

Today’s peak is marginally lower than Sunday’s high of $2,142, which is the strongest point that ethereum has hit since last May.
