Cryptocurrency Market – Support Levels are Becoming Harder to Identify
The overall sentiment in the cryptocurrency space remains negative with the latest move lower just another in a long line of sell-offs on little news. Turnover also remains light, indicating little interest on either side of the trading ladder, while technical now appear even more ominous. The sharp rally in many of the coins/tokens at the end of December left gaps on the charts on the way up which have filled reasonably easily on the way down. On the major tokens – BTC, ETH, BCH, XRP and LTC – that we looked at, there seems little in the way of strong support on the downside which could see losses accelerate further. The top five tokens are all brushing against oversold territory and may stabilize before the next leg lower.
