Bitcoin, Bitcoin Cash, Ethereum, Ripple: Prices, Charts and Analysis

  • Bitcoin Cash stuck in oversold territory.
  • Below USD100 billion market cap will trigger a wave of negative headlines.

Cryptocurrency Market Drifting Lower

A range of cryptos are in oversold territory, using the RSI indicator, and may bounce in the short-term although gains will likely be limited. Charts continue to paint a long-term negative picture with lower highs continuing to dominate. Markets are becoming stretched on the downside, while trading ranges remain tight and volumes remain low. Bitcoin Cash (BCH) looks increasingly oversold and may move higher in the short-term.

The cryptocurrency market cap currently stands around USD125 billion, just USD10 billion off this year’s low. If Bitcoin (BTC) falls to the next support level around USD2,970, then overall market cap will near or break below USD100 billion, triggering a round of negative headlines. Recall that this time last year, market commentary was suggesting a market cap of USD1 trillion or more.

Investors remain net-long cryptocurrencies but recent changes give us a mixed trading bias – for example the number of traders net-short Bitcoin is up from last week. You can sign up to the IG Client Sentiment Indicator for free to get updated positioning data.
