Top Crypto Prices Today: Crypto Market Cap Falls to $1.14 Trillion, Bitcoin Price Over $24,000, Ethereum Over $1850, Dogecoin, SHIB Gain Big

The past long weekend saw a very volatile action happening across the crypto market. The early part of the weekend managed to see strong recovery on the charts, with the markets managing to break into the $1.18 trillion region. But since then it has been falling, especially over the past two days and is currently trading near $1.14 trillion, according to CoinMarketCap – down nearly 3.3%. The total crypto market volume over the last 24 hours is $76.05 billion, which makes a 11.55% increase.

The total volume in DeFi is currently $5.93 billion7.80% of the total crypto market 24-hour volume. The volume of all stable coins is now $69.57 billion, which is 91.48% of the total crypto market 24-hour volume.

Bitcoin price too, early on in the weekend managed to see a significant recovery, and even broke into the $25,000 region for the first time in over two months. The last time BTC prices were at this level was back in the middle of June 2022, when the market saw a crash from $30,000 levels to sub-$20,000 region. Currently it is trading very close to $24,000, down about 3.5% from yesterday.

Ethereum prices, ahead of the Ethereum Merge coming in a month’s time in September 2022, saw a major leg-up over the weekend too. Its rally saw ETH prices tear past the $2000 before falling back down amid broader market pressures. However, since then it saw a minor shedding of value and is currently trading near $1870, down about 5.9% in the past 24 hours.


The fall in the overall crypto market in the past 24 hours has been quite significant and it is quite evident from the chart above too. All of the biggest altcoins by market cap suffered losses across the board. There isn't a single gainer so far in the list of the top 15 cryptos by market capitalisation. Some of the biggest losers include, Litecoin (LTC), Uniswap (UNI) and Solana (SOL) - having lost over 6-8% each in the past 24 hours. The likes of memecoins such as Dogecoin (DOGE) and Shiba Inu (SHIB) however managed to gain 3.5% and 2% respectively, as of writing this article.

However, broadening our horizon, a few coins out of the top 100 cryptos by market cap according to CoinMarketCap, managed to make some gains despite the bearishness in the market. Chiliz (CHZ), STEPN (GMT), and ANKR were some of the biggest gainers over the past 24 hours, with CHZ prices managing to gain over 15%! ANKR too has been on a roll ever since the news of Binance Lab's strategic investment last week, has managed to gain nearly 50% in the past 7 days.

GLOBAL CRYPTO MARKET OVERVIEW

Total Crypto Market Cap | Source: Tradingview

As mentioned earlier, the past two days has seen some significant losses across the board in the crypto market, which has ow resulted in prices falling below the trendline support of higher high, higher lows on the chart (marked in dark blue). So, from a technical point of view, this represents some weakness creeping in after a reasonable period of sustained upward move. However, it hasn't too far below the support line either. A small jump in prices would again put it back above the support line and the bullish price pattern may continue going forward.

Over the weekend, prices had also managed to break into the accumulation zone, but very briefly before falling back down. So, there too if we see a recovery, we may prices moving into the region marked in grey where we may see some accumulation taking place.

Also, another thing to mention is that the Relative Strength Index had also reached very close to the overbought region, close to 70. The minor correction we're seeing right now could a result of that too, so after a while of cooldown, we may see a resumption of that rally we have been seeing over the past four weeks.

In line with the crypto market cap, Bitcoin too has fallen slightly below its trendline support (marked in orange). However, it is still quite far away from the accumulation zone of $28,000-$32,000. Hence, Bitcoin still has a long way to go until its next logical resistance level. However, the rest of the observations remain pretty much the same for Bitcoin prices as well.

The Relative Strength Index for Bitcoin prices are at a very comfortable region to support any kind of recovery that may occur going forward. Currently trading around 57, the RSI is at a healthy level and it can easily support a recovery to push BTC prices back above the higher high, higher low trendline support. It had hardly managed to touch the $25,000 level before falling back down so another attempt at attaining that psychological level shouldn't be too far away.

CRYPTO MARKET: THE WEEK AHEAD

The week ahead for the overall crypto prices and the crypto market in general can be assumed to work along expected lines. Markets will tend to move three steps forward, one step back fashion and thus the up move will be slow and steady. This could be yet another small buy-the-dip opportunity but investors will need to do their own research before they do that. So, after a brief period of humdrum action, we may see some recovery going forward.
