Market Wrap

Crypto markets have bounced back from the dip yesterday to the same level they traded at for the past few days. The minor dump dropped markets back to $130 billion but they have since recovered back to resistance levels again.

Bitcoin is having a tough time breaking through heavy resistance at $4,000. Two intraday highs of $3,920 were reached but BTC was unable to push past this level and has remained at just over $3,900. Volume has fallen back below $10 billion but BTC remains range bound at the moment.

Ethereum has been sliding all week, it is up on yesterday’s prices but down in general. Currently trading at $133 ETH is still ahead of Ripple’s XRP by $1.2 billion. XRP has shown similar declines and is back to $0.309.

The top ten is mostly in the green during today’s Asian trading session. Three altcoins are making most of the gains though. Litecoin has added 5% to reach $57 and increase its lead over EOS in fifth. Binance Coin is motoring yet again with a 6.5% gain to $15.4 as it chases down Bitcoin Cash in sixth spot. Stellar is the third altcoin gaining today with a 6% push to $0.104 as it is poised to flip Tether when XLM reaches $2 billion market cap.

The top twenty is all green at the moment and Dash is moving the most with a daily gain of over 11%. According to studies Dash has been one of the top three performers since initial exchange listing. Today it has topped $92 and is the best performer in the top twenty.
