Cryptocurrency Prices, News and Technical Analysis

  • Bitcoin slips below $6,000 but ratchets back.
  • Ethereum breaks through noted support and may struggle on the upside.

Cryptocurrency Market Losses over $630 billion YTD

Market sentiment continues to remain weak after the latest heavy sell-off. The overall market capitalization fell to a low around $193 billion, a loss of $630+ billion during 2018. Even heavier losses were recorded in the ICO market with sellers spilling over into the main players. Ethereum in particular fell sharply as ICO holders bailed – most ICOs were bought using Ethereum – breaking noted support at $359. This now becomes resistance with support not seen until the $200 level.

Most coin charts are showing a series of lower highs this month, a negative technical set-up and one that points to further losses ahead. The recent rebound is looking shallow and weak and most coins remain stuck in a downtrend.
