Steem is not doing so well as the market recovers, weird, it was doing well when the market was going down

Nice to see some green again! It's been a rough week :S

We are headed lower. Almost a 0% chance price comes that close and "doesn't test the support" just buyers trying to hold up the market here and are going to be the ones puking it up ...then the bottom

Woow Eos already om the 5th place!

With a lot of people predicting a surge in July, I won't be surprised to see the exact opposite occur. A lot of people holding and waiting... prices stagnant and/or slightly bearish. lol


Although all of us are losing money on our Steem assets, this should just make us smile.

Only 1-2 days ago lots of Steemonians where blogging about the fact that Steem wasn't hurt to much in the terrible red day there was. And now everything goes up and Steem is basically the only one going down 🤨😂😥

If you look at midnight Steem is no11 for the losers table. So we really need a good ending of the month to make up for this!
