Bitcoin, Ethereum, Ripple: Prices, Charts and Analysis

  • Sharp turnaround in sentiment.
  • Technical set-up looks negative.

Cryptocurrency Market: Bitcoin May Re-Test Multi-Month Low

After a positive start to 2019 with prices drifting gently higher, selling returned with a bang to the cyrptocurrency space, backed by a sizeable pick-up in volume. Double-digit losses were recorded in some coins, while Ripple overtook Ethereum to become the second largest token by market capitalization. The selling was accompanied by heavy turnover – just under $20 billion – normally a bearish sign, especially after the quiet market conditions this week to date. The cryptocurrency market as a whole lost just under $9 billion in one hour.
