After a strong showing last week, the broader cryptocurrency market has once again come under selling pressure. BTC has shown signs of selling pressure this weekend and is currently trading 1% lower at a price of $22,060 and a market cap of $424 billion.

Popular market analyst Rekt Capital explains, “BTC must need Weekly Candle Close above $22800 to start reclaiming the 200-week MA as support”. However, BTC is likely to close below 200 WMA support this week.

This would mean that bears still have a strong hold on Bitcoin and crypto and last week’s recovery was not a formidable trend reversal.

If the broader macro environment continues to disappoint and move on, we could probably see BTC dip below $20,000 again.

Altcoin Market: Ether (ETH) Trading Sentiment Turns Negative

Last week, Ethereum formed a strong relief rally that passed $1,600 over the weekend. However, it has now partially corrected from above and is currently trading at $1,528 levels. On-chain data provider Santiment explains that ETH trading sentiment has now fallen into negative territory. The data provider writes:

Ethereum had an up and down Sunday, jumping above $1,640 before falling back to $1,540. The trading public continues to disbelieve the hype and expects prices to fall towards the #FOMC meeting. $ETH must remain volatile.

On the other hand, the ETH gas fee has dropped significantly. Citing data from Glassnode, crypto analyst Colin Wu explains:

Ethereum’s 7-day average gas fee reached 25,825 Gwei, a year-on-year low. Yesterday, the minimum gas fee was reduced to 3 gwei, the current gas fee is 4 gwei, the ETH transfer fee is $0.51 and the ERC20 transfer fee is $1.

Other altcoins such as Cardano (ADA) and Polygon (MATCI) did relatively well last week with double-digit returns. But if selling pressure continues, the broader crypto market cap could fall below $1 trillion.
