Crypto Review

Crypto hits a glass ceiling

Market Picture

The crypto market is struggling to break above the $1.09 trillion cap, having turned south from that level on Thursday morning, bringing the total market valuation down to $1.084 trillion.

Bitcoin continues to tend to sell on growth, failing to make a fresh attack on the 200-day. Bitcoin has recently outperformed the stock market but is now retreating against the buying in the indices. In the short term, bitcoin seems more at risk of falling than rising.

Ethereum also seems to be on the bears’ side, losing for the fifth consecutive session, tied to the downward-sloping 50-day moving average.

XRP has been trading at arm’s length from its 200-day moving average since the second half of August, most of the time acting as resistance.

The entire cryptocurrency market seems to be waiting for a substantial pullback in the top coins to buy in for the long term.
