  • Storj, Illuvium, Litecoin and DYDX note extreme negative sentiment from market participants.
  • Analysts state that increase in negative sentiment is correlated with likelihood of price bounce in altcoins. 
  • On-chain metrics support bullish outlook on LTC, STORJ, ILV and DYDX. 

As the Christmas holidays approach, analysts at Santiment comment on the rising negative sentiment among traders for a few altcoins. Previously, analysts have noted negative sentiment acted as a driver for price bounce in altcoins and expect a similar outcome this cycle.

Assets most likely to observe a price rally

According to analysts at crypto intelligence tracker Santiment, crypto traders showed increasingly negative sentiment towards assets: Storj (STORJ), Illuvium (ILV), Litecoin (LTC) and DYDX, heading into Christmas holidays. The data is gathered from discussions on social media platforms like X (formerly Twitter.)

While typically negative sentiment does not support a bullish thesis, analysts have recorded instances where a price bounce is preceded by rise in negative sentiment among market participants. If history repeats, STORJ, ILV, LTC and DYDX prices are most likely to see a recovery in the short term.

On-chain metrics support bullish outlook

STORJ supply on exchanges has dropped from its December peak of 20.94% (of the total supply) to 15.86% on Saturday. A decrease in supply of the asset on exchanges is correlated with reduced selling pressure and room for price recovery in STORJ.

In the case of Illuvium, there is a decrease in profit-taking activities of traders, starting December 14. Prior to this date, traders engaged in profit-booking on ILV as the asset’s price climbed. A reduction in profit-booking supports a bullish thesis for ILV price.

The active addresses and volume noted a consistent rise alongside Litecoin price rally, in December. LTC price is likely to recover in the short term in line with the bullish outlook of its on-chain metrics on Santiment.
