While recovering from the pit, Bitcoin added $2000 to its value in just 24 hours. The coin maintained its upward pace and reached above $9000 by the midweek trading sessions. Though it faced momentary resistance at $8400 and $8600, the trend support was very strong. The peak resistance at $9100 resulted in a pullback and the coin dipped until it found support at $7900. This level also acted as a pivot and initiated another bullish run. The current trend support is as strong as the previous one, and the coin is continuing its upward journey.

On the weekly chart, with an upward rally, Zcash went up from $260 to above $500 marking a gain of 92 percent. But there, a massive resistance ceased its growth and the coin started to lose its value. Though it had a support at $455, it soon dropped to $409. The coin rebounded immediately to reach $472, but faced a new resistance there. With support between $430 and $445, Zcash is continuously testing this resistance level.
