Market Snapshot - Day Twelve

in steem •  11 months ago

This is my twelfth day from the 30 days writing challenge I'm doing during January. Basically, I'm writing each day an article on a topic that I'm interested in, or something that I'm just learning. I tag these posts with #challenge30days, if you want to join, all you have to do is to use the same tag. Each day I will also pick 3 articles and give them a full upsteem. For all the details and the motivation, have a look at the introductory post.

Top 10 Cryptos

At the moment of writing, top 10 cryptos were all in green, recovering mildly after yesterday's panic sell.

Although we see increase everywhere, yesterday's loss was in the double digits for half of the tokens. The only ones seeing double digits increase are Ripple and Stellar. It's worth noting Bitcoin tentative to go beyond the psychological $14k level, where it seems there isn't enough upward momentum, and Ethereum stabilization in the $1,200-$1,300 corridor. The other alts are recovering cautiously.


At the moment of writing, STEEM was trading, on average at $4.88 on Coinmarketcap, up from yesterday. On Bittrex, the 30 minutes chart is showing an inflection point at the 36k satoshi resistance line, and then a reversal following by a recovery.

The 1 hour chart shows recovery close to the previous levels before the panic sell.

The 1 day chart shows a fragile stabilization around 36k satoshis. There's not enough indication of a clear trend forming, but without significant upside, there's still room to go down until 22k satoshis.

SBD was trading, at the moment of writing, at $5.85 on average, slightly upfrom yesterday. The 30 minutes chart on Bittrex shows a failed attempt to break up beyond 45k satoshis and a pull back to 42-43k satishis.

The 1 hour chart suggests SBD entered sideways trading in a lower corridor than before the South Korea news, 42k-43k satoshis.

The 1 day chart confirms the creation of a down channel, with the resistance level around 25k satoshis.

Overall opinion: STEEM and SBD recovered after yesterday's moment of panic, but are continuing their correction down, in a healthier way.

It is impressive how fragile the market is, a couple of news out of context and everything falls


its still a young market so its expected to have some high and lows, it will get better with time

Thanks for the analysis! I consider EOS as one of the top 10 as well, no matter it's still only a token.

As for the down correction for STEEM and SBD, I hope it's not heading towards the levels from the last summer and autumn at $1-1.50 on average.


while I don't think it will reach that low, I think there's still some room to go down.


its on an upward trend, now 20% up, trading at $5.6
