If the trend continues, today’s low of $32,329 (on Coinbase) could be the local bottom before further upside. 

Lower highs and lower lows characterize a bull market. Thus, the previous local low of $27,650 will act as an important level of support for the alpha cryptocurrency in case of further downside.

BTC is changing hands at $33,593 at the time of writing.
