Top 3 Price Prediction Bitcoin, Ethereum, Ripple: Dominance struggle intensifies
- Dominance charts show high levels of stress in crypto market fundamentals.
- Bitcoin strives to win, while Ethereum strives to resist in front of the king.
- Ripple Ltd’s poor results impact on an XRP lacking in positive news.
The fight for market dominance between Bitcoin and Ethereum has taken its toll on the crypto market as a whole.
During the weekend, Bitcoin managed to overcome the first resistance level created by a medium-term downward trend line. But today it meets the 200-day simple moving average and the upward movement has become more complicated.
The Bitcoin now has a 67.16 level of market dominance, and if it manages to overcome the current obstacle, the primary target will be the 68.3 level, right at the top of the long term bearish channel (A).
The negative impact for Ethereum in the short term is essential, and it loses the support of the downward trend line that it already broke through two weeks ago. The current dominance level of the Ethereum is at 9.32, and it could go down to look for support at the 8.90 level, right at the base of the long-term bearish channel (B).
It is easy to imagine the potential impact on the structure of the crypto market of this moment in which the two top representatives of the crypto segment are in opposite situations.
If Bitcoin manages to break the long-term bear channel upwards, it will immediately send Ethereum to a new bear scenario below its long-term bear channel. That would penalize ETH a lot in the medium and long term. The opposite situation, positive to Ether, would imply an increase in capital flowing into the Altcoin segment.
The market sentiment in the crypto segment, elaborated by the site alternative.me loses a point from yesterday’s measurements, and at the 44 levels, it is on the verge of the optimistic side of the indicator.
Investors and cryptocurrency enthusiasts are not yet comfortable with the market and are still suspicious that the upward movement of the last few days is the long-awaited new bull market.
