Crypto market seems to face a dearth of the adrenaline rush since yesterday. Almost all the coins are trading with a negative change over the past 40 hours now including Bitcoin. The top coins have lost significantly in this downward stride and has turned the entire crypto market to have a pale trading. Price of bitcoin, Ethereum and XRP have been trading even lower than their respective major support levels. This has notably affected the market cap of the top coins and the altcoins as well.
Bitcoin, the anchor slid below its major support level of $10,000 which may have left the whale investors to experience the blow. According to the Bitcoin price forecast, analysts and experts were predicting that Bitcoin price would range somewhere around $15,000 by the end of the year, but the BTC price seems to have taken an opposite direction. BTC was trading above $11,000 in the past 10 days but the market pullback has taken the coin to its current trading price.
