What Changed in Crypto Markets While You Were Sleeping — July 52 min read
BeInCrypto presents our daily morning roundup of crypto news and market changes that you might have missed while you were asleep.
During the week of June 28-July 5, BTC did not move significantly in either direction. On the contrary, it ranged between $32,699 and $36,660. It’s still trading above the long-term horizontal support level of $32,600 and has created several long lower wicks below it.
However, technical indicators in the weekly time frame are still bearish. The MACD is negative, the RSI has crossed below 50, and the Stochastic oscillator has made a bearish cross.
The total cryptocurrency market cap is currently sitting at $1.48 trillion and has remained mostly flat throughout the past weekend. BTC (BTC) and ETH (ETH) are down 3.5% and 2.5% respectively, while most altcoins in the top-100 are also seeing slight losses on the day.
Synthetix Network Token (SNX) is faring the best. SNX is up 18.5% in the past 24 hours and has gained more than 41% in the past week. The Graph (GRT) and ECOMI (OMI) are also both up by over 10% from yesterday.
TitanSwap (TITAN) is the day’s biggest loser, trading down nearly 8%. However, this appears to be only a slight pullback. TITAN is still up by over 100% in the past week, beating out every other altcoin in the top-100.
