Bitcoin [BTC]’s sideways movement has been an event branded by a lot of officials and professionals as a prequel to a raise to the top. The cryptocurrency market has reflected this behavior too, with the prices staying in the green sometimes and red during others.

Bitcoin’s one-hour graph has seen more significant downtrends than uptrends. The latest downtrend brought the price down from $3,767.7 to $3,584.8. The support has been holding at $3,563.6 while the immediate resistance is at $3,826.1.

The Chaikin Money Flow indicator has just spiked to the zero-line after staying below it. This is indicative of an increase in the capital coming into the market compared to the capital leaving the market.

The Awesome Oscillator shows an increase in the graph. The increase also points to the fact that the market momentum has increased significantly.

The one-day graph for Bitcoin does not paint a better picture for the cryptocurrency, with the ongoing downtrend gaining predominance. The support has been holding at $3,263 while the downtrend resulted in the price falling from $6,467 to $3,777.7.

The Relative Strength Index shows the cryptocurrency falling to the depths of the oversold zone, a trend that has lasted for more than two months. The hold near the oversold zone is a sign of the selling pressure being more than the buying pressure.

The MACD indicator has moved as a conjoined pair after the signal line and the MACD line underwent a bearish crossover. The MACD histogram has majorly shown a bearish trend.



Conclusion

Bitcoin’s bearish woes continue as the above-mentioned indicators all take the side of the bear. As January runs into its last week, the cryptocurrency market has seen more significant downtrends than uptrends. With the indicators pointing to a continued sideways movement facilitated by the bear, investors may still need to wait for more time for their fortunes to reverse.

Litecoin [LTC] posted massive gains and came out as the biggest winner among altcoins as the week came to an end. The digital coin led the altcoin pack towards another bull run.

The latest pump, however, drove the crypto-asset’s price over $100-mark for the second time this year. Subsequently, the silver coin took over EOS to secure its position as the fifth largest crypto-asset by market cap.

As the crypto market started embracing green, many analysts in the space are of the opinion that the “altseason is upon us”. With the latest upswing, LTC became the fourth coin in the top ten with a three-digit valuation after Bitcoin [BTC], Ethereum [ETH], and Bitcoin Cash [BCH].

At press time, the coin was priced at $103.4 after surging by 7.93% over the last 24 hours. LTC registered a market cap of $6.40 billion and a 24-hour trading volume of $6.14 billion. Additionally, the digital coin rallied by 17.52% over the past week.

Litecoin was trading highest on Coineal via the trading pair LTC/BTC, accounting for a volume of 11.98%. The crypto-asset exchange was followed by EXX, which held 8.48% of the trading volume via LTC/USDT.



The upcoming Litecoin second halving event, scheduled for August 2019, and institutional adoption of the crypto were attributed to the series of bull domination this year.

Litecoin crashed soon after June 2018 and hit the lowest point at $30 earlier this year. The coin’s market recovery was resisted by bears as it was juggling within the range of $85-$90 before breaking the much-anticipated $100-mark.
