BeInCrypto presents our daily morning roundup of crypto news and market changes that you might have missed while you were asleep.
Last week, BTC stymied its downward trend. It created a small bullish candlestick with a bullish close. The bounce occurred right at the 0.5 Fib retracement support level at $34,350.
However, technical indicators are bearish. The MACD has given a bearish reversal signal, the RSI has fallen below 50, and the Stochastic oscillator has made a bearish cross (red icons).
The most recent time all three of these occurred was in September 2019. Therefore, it’s possible that the current movement is similar to that of September 2019. Another similarity between these two movements is the bounce between the 0.5-0.618 Fib retracement support levels, further strengthening the comparison
Due to the sharpness of the correction, a type of bounce would be expected, at least in the short term.
The total cryptocurrency market cap fell slightly to $1.45 trillion over the weekend but has since recovered some to $1.56 trillion at the time of press. Most cryptocurrencies in the top-50 are trading flat on the day, with the exception of XRP and Decred (DCR) which are both up 13%.
#99-ranked XinFin Network (XDC) has barely squeaked past to claim the biggest daily mover, however. XDC is trading up 13.64% on the day and 15% on the week.
BakeryToken (BAKE) is the days biggest loser thus far. It’s down 7% to trade at $3.92 over the last 24 hours and has nearly fallen out of the top-100 by market cap.
