Bitcoin Market Dominance Hits Seven Month High as Altcoins Beat a Retreat

Bitcoin Market Dominance Hits Seven Month High as Altcoins Beat a Retreat 1


Bitcoin has continued to eat into the altcoin markets as its dominance has hit a seven month high just shy of 56 percent.

Bitcoin Dominating Markets

Cryptocurrencies are pulling back this Monday morning but Bitcoin, which hit a new 2019 high over the weekend, is still firmly in control and leading markets. It is the first time since September last year that BTC has held such a large share of the markets. All momentum is with the king of crypto at the moment as BTC continues to make higher lows and higher highs.

Resistance at the 50 week moving average was broken late on Friday when BTC surged to a new 2019 high of $5,880. It held gains for the best part of the weekend before starting to pull back during Asian trading on Monday morning. At the time of writing BTC was trading at just below $5,700, down almost 2% on the same time yesterday.

Over the past seven days Bitcoin has gained a solid 7.5% which has pushed total market capitalization up to new highs for the year. The 2019 yearly high for Bitcoin is at the same place as 2018’s yearly lows;

Altcoins, however, have not enjoyed the same momentum and many of them are beating a retreat at the moment.

Altcoins Retreat on Monday Morning

Litecoin has lost the most in the top ten shedding 6 percent as it falls back below $73. This has caused LTC to drop down to sixth spot as EOS, which has only lost 3.5 percent, flips it for fifth spot. Market caps for both coins are very similar at $4.5 billion so these two could be jockeying for a while.

All altcoins are suffering at the moment with Cardano, Monero, IOTA, Ethereum Classic, NEO and NEM all dropping 4 to 5 percent. Cosmos, which has been surging recently, has also dumped today falling 9 percent back to $4.60.

Total crypto market cap has dumped $8 billion from its weekend highs and is currently at $180 billion. Global stock markets are also teetering this morning as Trump’s trade tariffs get ramped up. CNBC host Ran NeuNer pointed out that the Hang Seng is already down over 1000 points and Dow futures are down 500;

Crypto is often seen as a safe haven when traditional financial markets are in trouble. This may well provide the big boost Bitcoin needs to break above $6,000, however at the moment the bears are back in play on crypto markets.
