GLOBAL CRYPTO MARKET OVERVIEW

Total Crypto Market Cap | Source: Tradingview

After the overall crypto market’s fall over the weekend, it seems that it has stabilised near the long time trendline support (marked in orange). It is still marginally below the 50-day moving average (marked in cyan). It had attempted to break into the accumulation zone near $1.2 trillion but failed to sustain that momentum and eventually fell in the week after that.

The Relative Strength Index for the overall crypto market cap has sustained from yesterday around the 40 mark and thus weakness may persist going forward. There is news of an aggressive announcement by the US Fed which is prompting fear in investment markets but a clarity regarding that would surely help. But until then, it seems like that we may see further falls, as bears attempt to bring price below the support line.

TOTAL VOLUME IN DEFI

According to data from CoinMarketCap, the total volume in DeFi is currently $5.41 billion7.70% of the total crypto market 24-hour volume. The volume of all stable coins is now $63.73 billion, which is 90.61% of the total crypto market 24-hour volume.

And, according to DeFiLlama, the total-value-locked in DeFi as of writing this stands around $61.48 billion, down about 0.1% in the past 24-hours.

BITCOIN PRICE TODAY

BTC/USD | Source: Tradingview

The case for Bitcoin price remains to be weaker than the collective broader crypto market cap, from a technical standpoint. Bitcoin price fell a little less than a percentage over the past 24 hours and hence we may see further dips going forward. This is because of the fact that BTC price is below both the 50-day moving average (marked in cyan) and the trendline support (marked in dark blue).

Bitcoin's Relative Strength Index is also pretty weak, running just below the 38 mark and hence, in line with the observation made above, we can see sustained falls happening across the board.

ETHEREUM PRICE TODAY

Ethereum, thanks to the highly anticipated Ethereum Merge coming up is less than a month has managed to show some gains in the past 24 hours! While Bitcoin lost a little less than a percent, Ethereum price managed to gain a whole percent, despite the broader bearishness in the market. This is also evident from the table above which depicts Bitcoin losing out some more of its market cap dominance. But later on it fell from there, thanks to bearish pressures from the market and is about a percent in the negative.

All through this bearishness, ETH price has managed to sustain above the 50-day moving average and the trendline support as of writing this piece. Ethereum's stellar performance over the past few weeks has helped ETH price to keep some of its momentum going and helped sustain despite the broader bearishness. So if we see some positive news from the Fed, Ethereum could possibly be one of the biggest and the quickest recovery candidates amongst the biggest cryptos by market cap.
