- Sentiment level plummets by 30% despite falls of no more than 7%.
- The crypto market back to pessimism, a very positive factor in the long term.
- If selling returns in the short term, significant discounts on selected assets may arise.
At the same time that the bears on Wall Street showed their ability to break the irrational euphoria, some selling appeared in a crypto market that had already been pointing to a rapid fall for days, allowing it to emerge from the lethargy in which it was.
The impact of the downward movement on a technical level has been zero for the moment, but it leaves the situation much more dangerous for the next few days.
The market has felt the effects of the price drops on the market sentiment level. The indicator prepared by alternative.me site has collapsed to the 38 points from yesterday’s 52 levels.

The indicator returns to the “fear” zone and pushes the moment back to the April level when the Bitcoin was trading below $7000.

Ethereum dominance chart doesn’t confirm the trend change towards a pro-Bitcoin market at the moment. Technical indicators are currently in a 66% bearish position.
The bulls are clinging to the hope of a rapid upward movement that would raise the market share above 10.22% and thus enter a fully bullish scenario for Ethereum.

BTC/USD Daily Chart
The BTC/USD pair is currently trading at $9450 price level, up 1.65% on the day as it attempts to hold onto the bullish quadrant of the chart.

Below the current price, the first support level is at $9300, then the second at $9150 and the third one at $8725.

Below the current price, the first support level is at $230, then the second at $220 and the third one at $180.
The MACD on the daily chart completes the bearish cross but could reverse if bulls take the lead.
