Bitcoin (BTC) and Ripple (XRP): Prices, Charts and Analysis

  • Cryptocurrency market continues to struggle with ‘dip buying’ absent.
  • Further losses could accelerate due to fragile market conditions.

Cryptocurrency Market’s Continued Weakness

Bitcoin and Ripple - the two largest coins by market capitalization – still languish near their multi-month lows as the expected ‘buy the dip’ crowd remain noticeable by the absence. Over the last few months, most sharp falls in the cryptocurrency market have been followed by a reasonable rebound – dip buyers – before the market stabilized and moved lower again. This week’s heavy sell-off however - most coins are down between 25% and 40% - has sparked little buying interest, leaving prices vulnerable to fresh falls.

Bitcoin and Ripple Latest - Lacklustre Rebound, Lower Prices Ahead

IG Sentiment Data show how retail traders are positioned in various cryptocurrencies and how changes in holdings can affect market sentiment. Retail traders remain long of Bitcoin (76.2%) but the number of traders net-short has jumped by 27.7% from last week. Ripple continues to show a market heavily skewed towards the long side with retail 96.1% net-long the coin. See how these daily and weekly changes affect our trading sentiment/bias for a range of cryptocurrencies.
