Bitcoin

After failing to break the $12,000 mark, Bitcoin bears have taken over the market and the price plummeted, reaching as low as $10,000. While it was true that many people were bullish and called for a bull market, Bitcoin’s continuous failed attempts to break $12,000 took its toll and started a short-term bear trend that could reach $9,600 at some point.

There are many reasons that caused Bitcoin (and the rest of the crypto market) to plummet, mainly the US traditional market, DeFi, miners as well as traders.

  1. The US S&P 500 index pulled back on Thursday after reaching record highs just earlier this week. This happened because of a US report showing jobless claims of over 881,000 in August. While this number was, in fact, better than expected, it is still much larger than the one that the US saw during the 2009 recession high-point (665,000). Bitcoin is not completely uncorrelated from the traditional markets and has most likely reacted slightly to this news.
  2. While the DeFi craze is continuing, many believe that the fact that people are locking billions of dollars worth of Bitcoin may cause any form of market manipulation or influx of buyers/sellers much more significant due to reduced supply in circulation. It is also not implausible that DeFi is in a bubble (even some DeFi project leaders/creators such as Yearn Finance’s Andre Cronje say it), and that this is a form of a bubble “pop”.
  3. Miners and traders gathered up to sell Bitcoin at the $12,000 mark, which triggered this crash. Miners tried to secure their profits and play it safe, and traders most likely did the same, as they saw strong resistance sitting at the $12,000 level. All of the big mining pools saw large BTC outflows from the wallets, incidacting a market play with the intention to take profits and secure gains.

Traders should pay attention to Bitcoin’s price movement around $10,090 and $10,400.

Ethereum

Ethereum had a similar day to Bitcoin, with its price plummeting and reaching as low as $371. The second-largest cryptocurrency by market cap tried to break the downward pressure after dropping below $445. It quickly bounced off of $415 and pushed towards the upside. However, the $445 level was now resistance, and after a failed attempt to break it, ETH moved further down.

Ethereum is now in its consolidation/recovery stage near $380.

Traders should pay attention to any influx in volume as well as how ETH handles $415.

Ripple

XRP was no exception when it comes to today’s price movement. The third-largest cryptocurrency by market cap plummeted and reached as low as $0.238 before starting to recover. The price is now recovering at the $0.2454 support level, which is (at the moment) contested. It is still unsure of whether XRP will end up above or below it, so traders should watch out to a breakout to any side.
