Analyst: Crypto Markets Will Plunge After Bitcoin (BTC) Begins Making Bigger Moves

Bitcoin has dropped nearly 1% today and has led the entire crypto markets to slide, with many major cryptocurrencies trading down 2% or more. Despite todays drop, trading volumes on major exchanges has been holding steady, and are up significantly from where they were in early-February.

Now, one popular cryptocurrency analyst explained that he believes most major cryptos will plunge as Bitcoin begins making bigger price swings.

Bitcoin (BTC) Holds Above Support Around $3,900

At the time of writing, Bitcoin is trading down just under 1% at its current price of $3,900. This price level has proven to be a region of relative support, but BTC currently has significantly greater levels of support down towards $3,700.

Bitcoin has continued to struggle to break above the $4,000 price level, which has proven to be a strong level of resistance that will require a significant influx of buying pressure to break decisively above.

Despite the less-than-positive trading action the cryptocurrency has experienced over the past several weeks, it is important to note that the overall crypto markets have seen a notable rise in trading volume, while BTCs volume only accounts for a fraction of the overall markets volume.

Mati Greenspan, the senior market analyst at eToro, spoke about the markets current trading volume in a recent email, explaining that Bitcoins slight volume decline may be partially due to smaller cryptos incurring significant amounts of trading volume in recent times.

Global volume across crypto exchanges is holding steady at around $30 billion per day, yet bitcoins volume is less than a third of that figure. Sure, bitcoin exchange volumes are still about double what they were in early February, but some coins like Litecoin, EOS, and BNB have more than tripled their daily volumes in the same time frame, Greenspan explained, also noting that the decline in Bitcoins trading volume is very telling of the current market conditions.

Crypto Markets Likely to Sink as Bitcoin Begins Making Larger Swings

Although Bitcoin has been seeing a decline in trading volumes along with a decline in volatility, one analyst believes that the overall markets will begin incurring greater volatility as Bitcoin begins making larger price swings in the near-future.

$BTC update: This is the range Im currently watching. The only reason why I think BTC is important right now is that I expect a big altcoin dump the moment BTC starts making bigger moves. Altcoins are safe as long as BTC stays lethargic. I dont expect that to last though, DonAlt, a popular cryptocurrency analyst, explained to his over 85k followers.

As the week goes on it is very likely that traders and analysts alike will gain a greater understanding of where the market are heading next as the patterns surrounding trading volumes becomes clearer.
