It looks like sellers in cryptocurrencies are losing patience. The crypto market remains tightly pinned at $1.04 trillion in capitalisation. An attempt to break away and cross the $1.05 trillion mark has been met with heavy selling, and it’s well below the $1.1 trillion pivot late last month.
Similarly, Bitcoin is finding it increasingly difficult to keep its balance as it rises above $26.0K. The last such attempt on Friday morning was quickly thwarted, and BTCUSD is again trading near $25.8K.
Bitcoin’s technical picture on daily timeframes remains bearish, as the 50-day is approaching 200-day MA from above. The crossing (probably next week) can potentially trigger an impulsive sell-off, which is very dangerous in such a thin market.
Ethereum is trading near its 50- and 200-week averages and near its lows from March. This is a bearish disposition, especially given the strengthening dollar and pressure on US stock indices in the background.
