Crypto Focus: А Stable Week of the Crypto Market
So far, it’s been another week of what could have been. We saw solid gains on most of the top 10 turn into heavy selling that retraced most of the move. ETH, for instance, lost 11% of gains by Friday’s session. BTC 6.66% while coins like AVAX dipped into the red. BNB and SOL also struggled to find buyer demand tracking lower most of the week. XRP, like Bitcoin, saw plenty of buyer demand throughout the week but failed to hold gains late in the week, trimming gains into Friday. ADA bounced back this week, and it was nice to see the coin trading up to 25% higher before the fade set in.
Bitcoin started the week below 30K. This set off a few alarm bells, but those worries subsided after the market leader moved back above 30k. Late week news hit that BTC mining has been banned in New York, and miners are reported to have been offloading their holdings.
Ore worry hit the stable coin markets as DEI lost its peg, falling below 0.4. The stable coin issues could continue to undercut confidence in the crypto market. It was only a few weeks ago we saw the utter carnage that UST and Luna caused.
Quite a few of the top ten look to be threatening at new pushes lower late into the week, but sellers have tried before to beat levels before being rejected. This week will look at the top 10 index. We can see that price overall remains in a range. The levels we want to see hold are 13,034 and 12,670. Any breaks below 12,670 signals the downtrend is back on. If we can see a close above 13,660, this could suggest buyers are back in control of short term momentum.
