After suffering billions of dollars of its market cap, Bitcoin displays recovery signs as it nears $10,500. The condition with the altcoins is somewhat distinctive, as some large caps are striving.
Most of the cryptocurrency market is eventually taking a breather after a few successive days of price drops. Bitcoin sits just shy of $10,500, but some large-cap altcoins like Ethereum are still displaying issues.
Bitcoin Hovers Around $10,500
In the past couple of days, Bitcoin reached from a top of $11,150 to a bottom of below $10,300. The primary cryptocurrency correlated with the price performances of other financial markets. Gold and equities plunged similarly following rising COVID-19 confirmed cases in Europe.
Following yesterday, though, the asset has displayed minor recovery signs. The free-fall stopped, and BTC even headed towards $10,600. The bears didn’t allow any further price increases and drove the price down to its current level – around $10,450.
In case Bitcoin remains improving, it needs to overcome the first resistance at $10,580, followed by $10,700, and $10,840, before having a chance to face $11,000.
Alternatively, the support levels that could assist if it drops lower are $10,300, $10,200, and $10,000.
On a 24-hour scale, the relationship between gold and Bitcoin seems interrupted. While BTC has stopped declining, gold is back under $1,900 per ounce. Still, this could imply further adverse price developments for BTC. As reported recently, BTC tends to follow the precious metal as the 60-day correlation among the two reached a new all-time high.
Large-Cap Alts Struggle With Recovery
As it generally happens, the billions of dollars that evaporated from the crypto market cap in the last few days harmed altcoins the most. Ethereum went from challenging $400 to about $330. Despite increasing slightly to $338 since the bottom, ETH is still red on a 24-hour scale.
Bitcoin Cash has improved by 0.5%. Thus, BCH has stretched its lead over Polkadot for the 5th position as DOT has dropped by 2.7%.
Chainlink has lost the most substantial chunk of value from the top 10 (-8.5%). LINK is down below $8.5, and Crypto.com Coin, which has stayed relatively flat since yesterday, has taken over the 8th spot.
Ultra (21%), HedgeTrade (15%), OMG Network (14%), Celsius (10%), and Synthetix Network (10%) have recovered the most value in the past 24 hours.
After launching its mainnet, becoming listed on several exchanges, and exploding in price in days, Avalanche has retraced today by 60%. Orchid has also declined by 15%, followed by Loopring (-9%), Blockstack (-8%), and Ren (-8%).
