This marks a significant rise as most of the coins broke their short-term resistance levels despite the biggest cryptocurrency, Bitcoin’s continued support to the bear. Litecoin [LTC] and Monero [XMR] also showed that they prefer the bull’s rule over the bear’s as the coin glowed green in the market.
