I was thinking there could be a quiet end of this week but the market wants a different thing, yesterday it started a new sell-off in all the charts. During last week, the prices of the main top ten cryptos were moving in narrow ranges and without definition after BTC touched a maximum of $6,319 on Monday 25th and a few hours ago, was very close to the annual minimums touching the $5,790.
Market Cap: $234.606.528.197
24h Vol: $12.030.491.219
BTC Dominance: 43.1%
Overall market cap dropped from a weekly high of $ 261,218 Billion to a low today Friday of $ 232,631 Billion and Bitcoin’s dominance has gone up to 43.1% for the first time since April 12.
The important support for the BTC price of $6,000 was lost. The fear in the market is that most of the cryptos will follow the drop of the mother of coins and the result would be a disaster for all cryptocurrencies because we are facing a real possibility to see a minimum of the BTC close to $3,000.

There was no remarkable news that could have moved the market considerably. Here is a summary of the most important news items of the week.

Here in late June 2018, the GBTC premium and the South Korean “Kimchi” premium are quickly disappearing. This has historically been a bullish sign that has signalled the end stages of a bear market.

BTC opened on Monday at $6,160 and touched a high at $6,319, but since then it has been falling slowly during the week, at this moment it is accumulating losses of -5.6% on the week. At the beginning of the trade session, the price reached the annual minimum at $5,838 and at this time it is negotiated at $5,880.
As we mentioned in our crypto analysis yesterday, the level to beat for the bears was $6000 this important support was crossed and if the bears continue to put pressure on the market, the result would be a complete red spot all around the charts with BTC looking for lower levels towards $3,000.

ETH has lost 9.32% Since opening on Monday and looses 28.5% in June. The bearish trend continues as the bears are putting lower minimums in the chart.
The price is trying to cross the Pivot S1 at $410 and received some difficulty there. It is now sitting around $411 and continues to move down into the bearish channel on this 4-H chart. A breakout of Pivot S1 will probably send the price to the Pivot S2, the important level of $400.

LTC has lost 8.88% Since Monday’s opening and made big loses of 88.4% in June. The price crossed down the triangle chart pattern in $76.47, exactly at the convergence point with the Central Pivot Point and is now sitting at $73.51, an important support to break. The downward trend of the market continues and there are no positive fundamentals that can turn it back, a red weekend is expected for the market.

The market is making strong short movements that bring new lows in most of the cryptos. The question here is, will the market take a break and recover a little to go down again or this is a confirmed trip to $3.000 in BTC that will drag the others to the ground?
