At 10:30 AM UTC, Bitcoin was seen to be trading at $8892.01 with a market capitalization of $151.114 billion.

The sentiment analysis segment is carefully structured after interviewing a group of analysts, investors, skeptics, miners, influencers, and their valuable comments are published as it is. The sentiments of people from around the world are recorded to ensure that our readers get a wholesome picture. The analysis includes expert comments of people on the current market trends and the possible outcomes of the coins. This analysis is focused on the 3rd most important coin in the world: Ripple [XRP].
The positive momentum for Ripple seems to have faded away as it was trading above $0.90 on Sunday but the gain was reversed today with a 2.31% loss in the last 24 hours. At 11:05 AM UTC, the coin was seen to be trading at $0.875 with a market capitalization of $34.236 billion. The bearish trend kicked in yesterday at 9:59 PM UTC and it took the coin down to $0.867.
There is a chance for a short-term correction. The targets set for the coin is $0.90 and $1. The sentiments show positive signs as long as the coin stays above the $0.66 mark which also serve as a support now. The coin peaked at a monthly high at $0.940 and due to a downside correction, the price went below the support at $0.85.
Emma Cox, a Ripple investor from Nevada says:
“The price is trading well above the 200 and 100 SMA and the indicators show that there is a chance for the coin to consolidate above the support in the short term. The MACD indicator does not indicate a bullish momentum in the 4 hour chart.”
Patrick Torres, a Computer Engineer from Phoenix says:
“XRP reached the targets easily but the logical decline target for the coin is $0.77. The possibility of this happening is high if the investors fail to maintain a minor level at $0.83. There is a bullish triangle formation for the coin and the targets are most likely to be achieved through a correction.”
Neil Long, an Economics lecturer from Saint John says:
“There is a cup and handle formation for the coin and let us wait till coin breaks out of the handle. If it does, then we can expect a breakout and the price will go up above the $1 mark and reach $1.27 by the end of this month. The handle is forming a descending boarding wedge which typically breaks bullishly upward.”
To conclude, 78% of Ripple respondents are bullish and are of the opinion that the coin will break the $1 mark in the subsequent days. Another minor 22% of the Ripple respondents feel bearish as they are of the opinion that the bullish momentum that died out will not kick in anytime soon.

Litecoin [LTC] smashes $100 valuation for the second time this year
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.
