Cryptocurrency Market Remains Negative
Online news and networking giant Twitter became the latest company to pull cryptocurrency advertising, following in the steps of Facebook and Google, in an attempt to restrain potentially fraudulent behavior on its platform. The ban sent the cryptocurrency market lower and was followed by news that the Litecoin Foundation had ditched the launch of payment processor company LitePay, prompting a mea culpa from Litecoin founder Charlie Lee, who tweeted his regret for having “hyped up this company and (we) vow to do better due diligence in the future”. Litecoin continued its recent bearish movement and slipped through Fibonacci support at $524. The coin currently trades around $457.
Bitcoin continues to lose market capitulation, dropping $20 billion over the week to currently stand at £135 billion, while the price chart shows a descending wedge formation nearly completing, a technically bearish signal. In addition the 50-day moving average is likely to trade below the 200-day moving average, another negative technical signal.
