Slight Weakening of Crypto

Market picture

There are weak changes in the crypto market, with a slight drop in the capitalisation of 0.13% to $1.173 trillion. Bitcoin loses 0.4%, and Ethereum loses 0.2%, mainly due to lower risk appetite in equity markets. The top altcoins are multidirectional, ranging from a 0.65% decline (BNB) to a 1% gain (Solana).

Bitcoin volatility remains well below average and lower than most equities. There remains a delicate balance of range-bound moves with slightly higher downside risks as BTCUSD falls further behind its 50-day average. Medium-term speculators are likely waiting for the end of the consolidation to enter the activity in case of a move out of the recent range. The movement could become one-sided, with a break above $30.1K or below $28.9K.
