The crypto market: numbness or stability?

Market picture

Bitcoin rose 1.3% over the past week, finishing near $19,500. Ethereum added 1.3% to $1320. Other leading altcoins from the top 10 showed mixed dynamics, from a decline of 2.8% (BNB) to a growth of 17.2% (XRP).

Total crypto market capitalisation, according to CoinMarketCap, increased by 1.7% over the week to $944bn. The cryptocurrency Fear & Greed Index declined by 2 points over the week to 22 and remained in “extreme fear” mode.

Bitcoin has declined in the past week following the stock market but has moved somewhat reluctantly. BTCUSD remained above the lower end of last month’s trading range. This could be a continuation of buyers’ optimistic mood or a manifestation of crypto’s secondary nature, which is waiting for signals from equities. The last month has made the crypto market look more stable than the equity market, even if it’s lethargic.
