• The cryptocurrency market is losing ground, controlled by bears.
  • Bitcoin, Ethereum are still deep in red on a day-on-day basis.

The cryptocurrency market lived through another bloody red day as Bitcoin and all major altcoins are nursing significant losses ranging from 1% to 7%. The total capitalization of all digital assets in circulation dropped to $303 billion from $320 billion on Monday, while an average daily trading volume reduced to $86 billion from $90 billion this time on Monday. Bitcoin continued losing its market value, which is now 60.3% from over 63% registered in the previous week.

Top-4 coins price overview

Bitcoin (BTC/USD) settled above $10,000 handle after a short-lived collapse to $9,977 on Monday. The first digital asset is ov=ne of the worst performing coins out of top-20, with nearly 7% of day-on-day losses. A failure to recover above critical $11,000 may spell disaster for Bitcoin bulls and create an environment for a deeper downside correction.

Ethereum, the second largest digital asset with the current market capitalization of $30.60 billion, has lost over 3% of its value on a day-on-day basis. After a failed attempt to recover above $300, the price has settled at $288, within a whisker of the intraday low. ETH/USD is driven by the bearish sentiments that gripped the market, which means that the selling pressure will not subside in the nearest future.

Ripple's XRP clinches to $0.40 handle. The third largest digital asset with the current market capitalization of $17.0 billion has lost over 2% since the beginning of the day, and 3% on a day-on-day basis. At the time of writing, XRP/USD is changing hands at $0.4008, having recovered from the intraday lows of $0.3981

Litecoin (LTC/USD) is exploring territory below $120.0. The fourth largest coin with the current market capitalization of $7.3 billion managed to recover from the Asian low of $117.64, though its price is still 5% lower from this time on Monday. LTC/USD is moving in sync with the broader market.
