Altcoins emerge as biggest losers in recent bloodbath
Today stocks and assets in most global markets faced a sharp decline. The losses suffered on Wall Street came as a result of the spike in downward pressure on technology stocks. Among altcoins, Loopring, NEAR and Harmony suffered double-digit losses.
Loopring, Harmony and NEAR posted over 25% in losses in the market's recent downturn. Colin Wu, a Chinese journalist, believes that the key reason for the decline in altcoin prices is a pullback after a large spike.
The cryptocurrencies with the largest declines in the past 7 days are: Loopring (-32.5%), Pocket Network (-30.2%), Kadena (-27.3%), Harmony (-26.6%), Near (-25.1%). The main reason for the larger decline was a pullback after a larger rise.— Wu Blockchain (@WuBlockchain) January 21, 2022
Analysts have evaluated the Loopring price trend and predicted that the altcoin is at a make-or-break point. Loopring price has dropped to the confluence of horizontal and daily moving average for 200-days for the first time since late October.
@AltcoinSherpa, pseudonymous cryptocurrency analyst and trader, has predicted a further drop in NEAR price. The analyst expects the price to drop to $14, so investors can continue accumulating NEAR.
@rektcapital, an analyst and trader, believes that there is scope for Bitcoin dominance to increase since it hit the bottom of the black wedging structure after slowing down in momentum for weeks. If Bitcoin dominance fails to rise, the analyst expects selling pressure to increase further in altcoins.
