Weekly Market Roundup: It Was A Bearish Week As Top Coins Shed Gains

Share

 

Last week was the worst for Cryptosphere since the market recovery in April. For the first time in months, all top 10 coins were not profitable for the entire seven days.

While there were ups and downs, most coins experienced double-digit losses, resulting in most of them shedding gains from previous weeks. At midnight on Sunday GMT+4, total Market Cap dropped from $275 billion to $234 billion, representing a deterioration of $41 billion for the week.

Monday was a green day for traders who cashed in,  but Tuesday experienced moments of pimento red. On Wednesday, the markets showed signs of recovery, but they could not gather the needed moment and sunk again.

Thursday and Friday brought no better luck as the market swung like a pendulum. Bitcoin fell as much as 5%, and the price lowered to the $7500 territories.

Experts began making bearish forecasts that were scary. Crypto Thies of Market God even predicted that the price of the pioneer Cryptocurrency would undergo a 30% downtrend if his observations from previous years are accurate.

There were hopes on Saturday that the week would end on a good note since there were some notable pumps here and there. However, there was not enough drive throughout Sunday as the deterioration continued unabated.
