The downfall in the price of BTC has been the topmost concern in the crypto market. On a 7day-weekly chart, BTC started with a strong price level of $9100. After breaking the level of $9k, it hinted that a major downtrend can be faced by the market. However, the significant downtrend line was formed when BTC plunged below the $8k level.

It was also expected that BTC will show some efforts of sustainability at $6k which went completely wrong. The bearish market forces pushed the crypto assets to its lowest level for the year of $3800. Soon after reaching the level of $3800, BTC again started showing signs of recovery which has brought up the current price to the level of $5300

Verdict: BTC may resume its downfall activities as the relativity between the cryptomarket and global market increases. Also, there has been no positive news on the global outbreak of coronavirus.

For seeing BTC in green again, the global market must provide cryptomarket some positive macro-level news in the market. Therefore, BTC may stay bearish for the upcoming days.

Ethereum has also been one of the most affected crypto assets in the market. Before the downfall occurred, ETH was enjoying the support level of $235 and no one even imagined that they will be seeing ether at a current price level of $120. Ethereum hinted its ongoing significant downtrend when it broke below the crucial price level of $200.

The market expected that the crypto assets will be taking a halt at the price level of $150 but the market crash forced Ethereum to reach its bottom level of $105. The only positive aspect ether had that the price of $105 acted as a major support level and pushed the current price to the level of $120.

Verdict: The volatility of ether still remains questionable. No one expected that the crypto-asset will be reaching a price of $105. The current price recovery to $120 doesn’t seem to be very sustainable and the existence of bears may provide another significant downtrend to the crypto assets.

On the 7day-weekly chart, Ripple was having a bullish price level of $0.25 until the bears made a comeback in the market. The price made a negative jump from the level of $0.23 to the support level of $0.20.

The market crash forced XRP to drop from $0.20 to its lowest level of the year which is $0.13. However, after reaching its lowest level XRP showed little signs of price recovery which pushed the current price to the level of $0.15.  

Verdict: XRP is still moving in the very critical zone of $0.10 to $0.15. Looking at the overall market conditions and the current downfall, XRP may face further downfall which can even break the level of $0.10.
