  • Ethereum on track to book a whopping 18% weekly gain.

Top 3 coins’ price overview

  • Bitcoin (BTC/USD) is seen reversing the recovery gains seen so far this Sunday, as the bears look to resume the correction from a five-month high of 10,511.86. The No.1 coin risks further falls amid a bearish technical set up, as the price continues to trade below the 200-HMA. The most dominant cryptocurrency is almost unchanged on the day, surrendering the 10k mark once again while enjoying a market capitalization of $181.70 billion.
  • Ethereum (ETH/USD), with a current market capitalization of $29.54 billion, remains the most favorite amongst the top 3 widely traded crypto coins. Amid a fresh selling-wave seen across the crypto space, the No. 2 coin slipped further below the 270 mark and fell as low as 265.72 before recovering slightly towards the former. Despite the minor pull back from the lows, the price could come under fresh selling pressure if the broad crypto correction picks up pace. The coin is set to book an 18% weekly gain.  
  • Ripple (XRP/USD) sellers are back in play after the rebound from Saturday’s 0.2942 low lost legs in the upper bound of the 0.31 level.
