Crypto market update: 8 September 2022

crypto market update

The crypto market had a roller coaster ride in Wednesday’s session, starting the day on a dull note with Bitcoin trading below the $19,000 level for the first time in three months. However, as the day wore on, the market recovered, supported by falling bond yield and a breakout in the tech-heavy Nasdaq, which closed the day up 2.14%.

However, this is more likely a short-term spurt in the market as global market conditions remain uncertain amid the impending energy crisis caused by the standoff between Russia and the West.

Despite the rebound in the crypto market, the Fear & Greed Index slid further by four points in yesterday’s session and is currently at the 20/100 level, signaling extreme fear among investors.

The total market capitalization of crypto stands at $975 billion, while the ETH dominance level has increased by 20.4%.

After the initial sell-off, Bitcoin recovered but is now facing strong resistance at the $19,200 level. Weak investor sentiment and uncertain global macroeconomic conditions are pulling the market down. To reverse the bearish trend in the short term, the world’s largest cryptocurrency by market capitalization needs to break above the 50 *EMA slope, which has turned extremely resistive.

Thanks to the ongoing merge process, Ethereum is witnessing huge price action, gaining almost 8.11% in the last 24 hours. ETH reversed the trend quickly after the initial sell-off and is now above the resistive $1,620 level. Keep a close eye on how ETH moves around the key support and resistance levels. A break above the $1,680 level will help ETH to move even higher.

Other top coins witnessing huge price action include BNB, SOL, DOT, MATIC, ETC, and ATOM.
