Daily Markets Update - October 15, 2020




Not much to note overnight as markets were stagnant for the second consecutive day and the major coins were largely range-bound, a trend that has persisted all week.

  • Digital asset market cap at $351B, down another $3B from yesterday. 

  • $BTC maintained support at $11,300 but is still trading range-bound after rejecting $11,500 three days earlier (Oct 12th). Prices have dropped slightly over the past couple consecutive days. Currently trading at neutral RSI levels within a tight bollinger band.

  • $ETH also found support above $373, currently trading at $377 with a tight traded range of $4 and has dropped slightly over the past 3 days, coupling movements with BTC. Next psychological target remains at $400.

  • $BCH inched up 2% (~$5) from yesterday to $258, month to date has improved 13%. Most recent high at Aug 2nd at $338 levels (currently down 21% from that high)

Alts and DeFi watch:

  • DeFi TVL up 10M to $11.36B

  • $YFI dropped for its fourth consecutive day as it’s been unable to win back DeFi supporters at the moment with a lack of a voice on their social media platforms post-Andre and new staking opportunities. It has dropped 23% over this period trading at $14,000 levels and 1.24 YFIBTC 

  • $LINK maintaining above $10.50 levels, trading range-bound between $10.50 and 11. Currently trading at oversold RSI levels, but still 3% above 10d SMA expectations
