The analyst said:

“Another good day for BTC. That said it’s still nowhere close to turning bullish on the higher time frames. While the low timeframes look decent, BTC hasn’t even reclaimed the previous trading range. Until it does, no swing long trades.”

Alex Kruger, an economist and cryptocurrency trader stated that BTC is now in a better position and it is plausible that it enters a consolidation period. This is because it has successfully minimized losses during several steep market sell-offs.

In comparison to Ethereum and Bitcoin Cash, Bitcoin has been able to successfully keep it’s value substantially well owing to intensity of market crash in the past two months. ETH and BCH recorded steep losses of 93% and 95% against USD.

“Performance from all-time-highs to date, for the main cryptoassets: BTC -82%, XRP -86%, ETH -93%, BCH -95% (using Bitfinex’s data). These may all look equally bad. It is not so. The difference between -82% and -95% is a further 72% drop,”

Krüger explained.

Wary Markets

Several analysts have time and again confirmed that till Bitcoin price remains below $3,700 the market is at a major risk of hitting rock bottom.

Considering, the previous market trends cryptocurrency market has taken around 67 weeks to recover from a market crash and accomplish a new all-time high.

Positive developments like the Nasdaq, Bakkt, and NYSE futures markets are around the corner and are expected to launch in the first quarter of 2019.

A proper bottom has not been established by BTC and other major cryptocurrencies, as well as small market cap ERC20 tokens, show no signs of a  large corrective rally.
