Bitcoin, Ethereum, Ripple: Low Volatility Deja Vu


Bitcoin, Ethereum, Ripple: Prices, Charts and Analysis

  • Trading ranges continue to remain tight across the cryptocurrency space.
  • Positioning for a break in this market is dangerous.

Another week of low volatility with most cryptos within 1%-3% of where they were this time last week. A lack of any fundamental news has pushed investors/traders to the sidelines and it is unlikely that they will return until price action improves.

Daily turnover of less than $10 billion compares very badly to the $50 billion+ days seen at the start of the year and may lead to a sharp breakout in either direction if a pick-up in volume occurs. If you want trading volatility then, gold, oil, us dollar are just some of the asset classes where daily movement is a regular occurrence.
