Crypto Market Sentiment Improves

cryptocurrencies 011918 04oct22 lt

Cryptos rallied more than 3 percent in the past 24 hours amidst a revival in global market sentiment. An unexpected drop in factory output in the U.S and a less than expected hike in interest rates by the Reserve Bank of Australia spurred the risk-on sentiment across global markets.

Increasing expectations that central banks would pause on the monetary policy tightening dominated market sentiment. Markets now await the job openings data from the U.S. for labor market cues and its influence on the Fed's interest rate decisions.

The Dollar Index meanwhile hovered between 110.81 and 111.89 and is currently near 110.97. The easing in Bond yields and the Dollar's retreat from recent highs helped digital assets trade comfortably in the green zone. Stocks too have rallied across regions.

Overall crypto market capitalization is now at $961 billion, versus $930 billion, a day earlier. More than 95 percent of the top 100 cryptocurrencies are trading in the green zone.

Market leader Bitcoin is currently trading at $20,085.60, having gained 4.5 percent in the past 24 hours. BTC traded between $20,085 and $19,184 in the past 24 hours, but is still in negative territory on a weekly, monthly and quarterly basis. BTC currently dominates 40 percent of the overall crypto market.

Around 52 percent of Bitcoin holders are in the money at current prices. On-chain metrics also reveal that around 63 percent of Bitcoin holders have been holding on to the digital asset for more than a year.

Ethereum also gained 4.2 percent in the past 24 hours and is currently trading at $1,356.80. Ether ranged between $1356.80 and $1,299.60 in the past 24 hours. Ethereum currently dominates 17.3 percent of the overall crypto market.

Only 41 percent of Ethereum holders are out of money at current prices. 64 percent of Ethereum holders have been holding on to the cryptocurrency for more than a year.
