This week cryptocurrency prices are moving closer to the dreaded death cross. It’s likely that it made an appearance on the charts of Bitcoin and other Altcoins and this hints at an extended downtrend ahead. Market capitalization is inching closer to a brutal crypto winter and the bulls seem to be defeated by the bears this week. The ominous-sounding name death cross is given to when a short-term moving average like the 50-day MA for example crosses under a long-term or 200-day MA.

The last time the total crypto market capitalization death crossed was in May 2018 and the bear market took hold of Bitcoin and the rest of the altcoins across the space. The powerful downtrend that followed demonstrates just how significant a death cross can be. During the 2014-2015 bear market, Bitcoin itself completed a golden cross after it bottomed, only to death cross once again, then in the weeks ahead again completed a second golden cross that took hold and stayed crossed all the way to the Bitcoin’s all-time high of $20,000. It’s likely that after a short correction the crypto market will hit new highs until a new peak is reached and an all-time high is set.
With this analysis, let’s dive into this week’s crypto digest.
