The crypto markets are already off to a fast start as another week begins in the volatile month of March.
Bitcoin (BTC), Ethereum (ETH) and XRP are all in negative territory, at time of publishing, as Dow futures briefly stopped trading on Sunday after plunging 5% and reaching the limit-down threshold. The trading halt followed revelations from Congress that it failed to pass a $2 trillion coronavirus rescue package to help Americans.
The Bitcoin and cryptocurrency markets, which are decentralized and not controlled by any central bank, government or local authority, continue to trade without any intervention, interruption, kill switch or circuit breakers.
Here’s an overview of the crypto landscape, with just about every coin in the red, according to COIN360.
Analysts are taking a look at the week ahead, warning that more pain could be in store in the short term.
TraderXO tells his 36,700 followers on Twitter that BTC may experience a brief bounce before dropping to the $5,000 range.
$BTC – Dont be surprised if we se one more raid around 65s before a bigger drop – wiping out a large number of late shorts / tight stops
If it plays out – below is how I'm setting up
