The cryptocurrency market has had to face increased bearish momentum in the past week and with Bitcoin dropping to the $45k price range, many of the market’s altcoins too have followed BTC and traded lower. At the time of writing, Bitcoin was trading at $44,474 with a 24-hour trading volume of $42.9 billion.
For altcoins like Stellar, DigiByte, and BitTorrent such has been the case and an immediate recovery looks unlikely given the current market conditions.
Stellar’s price fell by over 15 percent in the past week and currently trades at $0.41. According to CoinMarketCap’s list, the coin has a market capitalization of over $9.3 billion and occupies the 10th spot. The coin’s price has tested the support at $0.37 in the past few days and is now making slight gains towards its immediate resistance at $0.54. If the present support would fail, XLM may even drop down towards the second support at $0.27.
The Bollinger Bands for the coin have contracted and show less volatility in the coin’s price action. The RSI indicator looks bearish at the moment as it heads closer to the oversold zone.
BitTorrent’s price fell by over 28 percent in the past 7 days and is currently valued at $0.0011. The bearish pressure is visible as the coin’s price plummeted by over 8 percent in a day’s time. The coin is currently testing its support level around its current trading price and if this support fails BTT is likely to undo all its recent gains and trade around the $0.0004 price range. There is significant resistance around the $0.0014 range if an uptrend were to occur.
The RSI indicator for the coin is falling steadily as it heads into the oversold zone. Interestingly, the EMA ribbons have settled below the coin’s trading price and are offering support for the coin.
DigiByte is currently trading at $0.051 and has a market cap of over $730 million. In the past week, the coin’s price fell by 33.6 percent and currently finds itself close to the support level at $0.049. If the downtrend were to continue there is another support around the $0.035 price level that could help stabilize the coin’s price.
The MACD indicator and the RSI signal increased bearish pressure for DGB. The MACD indicator has undergone a bearish crossover while the RSI continues to move into the oversold zone.
