An overview of BTC, ETH, MATIC, APT, SUI, VET charts, and the current cryptocurrency market dynamics.

Bitcoin (BTC)

Bitcoin is currently trading between the support range of $58,500–$60,000 and the resistance range of $64,500–$65,500. The asset's next movement will depend on whether it consolidates above or below one of these zones. 

A continuation of BTC's growth looks more likely. Above the mentioned resistance zone is the $66,800 level, where many short orders are concentrated. Breaking through this mark would remove significant barriers for buyers aiming for new highs. 

In a downturn scenario, Bitcoin could fall to the support range of $54,500–$57,000.

Ethereum (ETH)

The second-largest cryptocurrency by market cap has shown a positive response from buyers at the support zone of $3,240–$3,350, subsequently causing a slight price rebound. To confirm an upward trend, Ethereum now needs to break through the resistance level at $3,502 and test the seller's zone between $3,645 and $3,720. 

If buyers succeed, the next target will be $3,840. Ethereum stands a good chance of reaching a new all-time high (ATH). 

However, negative sentiment around BTC or adverse macroeconomic data could weaken ETH investors' purchasing power, potentially causing a price drop to the support level of $3,150.

Polygon (MATIC)

MATIC has slightly paused its decline amidst an overall bearish trend in the altcoin market. Currently, the coin is trading between the support zone of $0.51–$0.54 and the resistance zone of $0.58–$0.60. 

The asset's future movement might be influenced by Bitcoin's chart trend. In a neutral or positive scenario, MATIC might attempt to reach the $0.64 seller’s level, but achieving a substantial upward trend requires significant buying volumes to swiftly overcome resistance levels. 

Otherwise, a further decline to new lows awaits, with the first psychological level at $0.50.

Aptos (APT)

Aptos closely mirrors the market dynamics of MATIC. Currently, the asset is trading between a support zone of $6.38–$6.73 and a resistance zone of $7.4–$7.77, having reached this level after a prolonged correction. 

For growth to commence, APT needs a positive boost from an increase in BTC's price. In this scenario, the coin might challenge seller levels at $8 and $8.5, potentially resuming an upward trend. 

Alternatively, if the market turns bearish, APT may see a decline below the $6.4 mark.

Sui (SUI)

SUI reached a record high of $2.12 at the end of March but has since undergone a correction of nearly 65%. 

Currently, the coin is being supported by a buyer's zone of $0.75–$0.80. If this range fails to hold, the price could plummet to a new low at $0.7. 

A recovery for SUI appears unlikely at present. Only a secure position above the seller's zone of $0.89–$0.94 would indicate a potential onset of an upward trend, which is premature to anticipate at this stage.

VeChain (VET)

The asset has been on a downtrend for four months, with the asset now hovering just above the buyer's zone of $0.023–$0.025. 

To initiate an upward trend, VET needs to break through the resistance zone of $0.029–$0.031 and test the $0.035 resistance level. Without a stable increase in BTC, such a reversal seems unlikely. 

Therefore, the most probable scenario for VeChain involves a continued decline, potentially reaching new lows below $0.021.
