A tough week went by in the crypto market and a lot of blood spilled over the currency rates. This continues to feel the ongoing correction of the mad rises from last year. The FOMO feeling was replaced by the FUD, which is hurting the market with brutal declines and bringing Bitcoin to the lowest rate it has visited since June. For those who have not yet experienced a crypto-economic crisis and who have already forgotten the cruelty of the market, CMC can provide a reminder and show how in one week the alternative coins lost an average of 30-40% against the dollar.
This is a strong and unexpected blow after we had estimated last week that we had hit the floor. The dominance jumped to 54.1% in favor of Bitcoin and the entire crypto market dropped from $200 Billion, which is particularly worrying for those who entered the market in the past year. Ethereum, which reached its peak at $1,360 in December, is currently trading at $264, and meanwhile, it is difficult to predict the bottom. We may be seeing SALE prices under the cover of weak hands. It is possible that the realization trend has not yet said its last realization, and it seems that it will take more time for the market to stop for a deep breath. Even the currency of the Platforms Steem (SBD) which should be backed by 1 dollar fell below the dollar mark. The entire market is affected and those who hold Altcoins feel it well. Good time to think that whoever enters the market at its peak must examine themselves and learn the behavior of the market for the future.
Nevertheless, a little perspective is needed, spiced with optimism and patience. It is possible that the current market rates are an opportunity for those who sit on the fence or seek to strengthen their positions, arm themselves for the next wave of rises.
And for those of you who do not want to be exposed to the Crypto market directly, Bitmain is planning an initial public offering and has released a prospectus on the company site. The information that comes from there is very exciting for the world of crypto.

Against the dollar, the situation looks bad and the support areas around $400 broke fast and led to a biggest low of 2018 since November 2017. We were not around $260, where these areas of support are currently looking for a subtle bottom. Resistance is around $360 for this term.
Against Bitcoin, we returned to the support areas of December 2017. The price traded around 0.043 BTC with support in this range at 0.037 BTC. Resistance is at 0.054 BTC while the forecast for the near future is: volatile.
Against the dollar it seems that as with most of the market the slump is also coming in. Trading around $497 is still unclear if support for these resistance areas is in this range at $600.
Against Bitcoin, it’s trading down around 0.081 BTC. If we look at past support it seems that after the support was broken, the holding is around the 0.1 BTC rate. But it could also fall to areas of 0.07 BTC with resistance to this range at 0.09 BTC.
Against the dollar from a peak of nearly $19 it fell to $1.5 where the floor is true for a period. This is a good example of repair going through the market. It traded around $1.88 with resistance in this range at $3 and already the gate fell in early August.
In contrast to a positive week’s Bitcoin, despite the sharp declines, its at 0.000235 BTC. This appears to have been marked as a range for this range after an attempt to breach the W-level failed. Unlike other currencies, this currency rose against Bitcoin last week, but like the rest of the market, it suffered against the dollar.
Traded around 0.0003 BTC with resistance in this range at -0.00048 BTC.
Against the dollar it traded around $14.8 and seems to be approaching the support of October 2017. This was around $ 13 peak at the beginning of the year at $200. It seems that it will take time to get back there, while resistance in this collateral is at $20.
Against Bitcoin, its approaching the support of December 2017 which was around 0.002 BTC. It traded not far from 0.0024 BTC while resistance is at 0.003 BTC in this range.
