The cryptocurrency market corrects and its market capitalization falls below USD$1 Trillion

ETHEREUM -13.06%
Ethereum  is currently down 13.06% and is trading at 1,140.98. The current market capitalization of Ethereum is USD$134 Billion. The fall in cryptocurrency prices from recent days has been generated by the sale of these assets by investors, who have begun to close profits from the rally of the last few weeks. Cryptocurrency market capitalization has dropped from USD$1 Trillion to USD$902 Billion. Another reason for the price drop was the statement of the Treasury Secretary, Janet Yellen, who demanded more regulation for the crypto market. The ECB is also working on further regulation.

Expected trading range between 1,129 and 1,172 with Pivot Point for change in trend at 1,153.31. Bulls are starting to revise current entry level. Bulls forecast an upside to 1,500. However, if the massive selloff continues, price may look for levels below the 1,000 support. 

GBPUSD -0.46%
The sterling pound against the USD is currently down 0.46% due to the shorts positions by FX traders, which are anticipating that the UK retail sales data will not meet the market forecast. This due to the UK’s economic slowdown.

The currency was in a rising channel moving to 1.3742 level before correcting. The price is still above the 25 and 15-day moving averages. The RSI is at a neutral level. The price may reach the support at 1.3623 before setting a new trend. If the retail sales data is positive, we can see a recovery and a rise in the price above resistance 1. If on the other hand, the data is not convincing, the price may fall below support 2.

DAX 30 -0.75%
Markets are in the red zone globally due to profit taking by investors and also due to the risk of systemic contagion caused by the pandemic in the real sector worldwide.
