Crypto market daily report – June 20, 2018

The cryptocurrency markets continued to recover on Tuesday and Wednesday although there was a slight retracement at press time, with BTC settling at around the $6,650 mark. The figure of $6,800 had also been reached on Monday but there was a slight decline as turnover levels put pressure on the price.

Bitcoin Cash also made a good recovery over the past 48 hours rising to the significant $900 mark before dropping back slightly to the $870 levels on Wednesday morning. Ripple posted strong gains over Tuesday rising to almost $0.57—the highest level it has been over the past two weeks—before settling at around the $0.55 level at press time on Wednesday, a decrease of around 3%.

Ethereum increased to around the $530 level on Tuesday before it dropped to around the $520 level on Wednesday morning. After dropping to below the $470 level last week, Ethereum has now recovered well and posted a 10% increase over the past week, showing that the cryptocurrency has good staying power overall.

EOS also recovered well from its yearly low last week, when it dropped below the $10 level, and was trading at around $10.50 at press time on Wednesday. Litecoin also recovered from its intra year low of $93, posting a 5% increase and settling at $97 at press time on Wednesday.

Currencies with smaller market caps also posted good increases across the board, with Ethereum Classic jumping by around 8% over the past 48 hours to settle at around $15.50. Stellar also posted a 6% increase to settle at the $0.24 level before retracing slightly to around the $0.226 mark on very low turnover. NEO posted a good increase from the low of $36; it rose to $40 on Tuesday before again experiencing a drop of 3% to the $38 level. IOTA recovered to the $1.14 level, whilst Cardano rose to the $0.17 level before dropping back to around $0.16 at press time. TRON experienced a double digit increase over Tuesday to the $0.05 level, but lost some of those gains on Wednesday to settle at around $0.045 at press time. Dash was relatively stable at the $250-260 level on Wednesday with very little movement either way.
