Altcoins May Be Ready to Bounce as Bitcoin Dominance Peaks

Bitcoins recent surge into the $10,000 region has closely coincided with a surge in the cryptocurrencys dominance over the aggregated crypto market, which hit a fresh two-year peak this week. This surge in dominance has primarily been driven by lackluster price action amongst most major altcoins.

Importantly, analysts are now noting that altcoins may be close to surging, as any major drop in Bitcoins dominance could spark the long-awaited altseason that may allows many cryptos to recover much of their recent losses.

Bitcoin Dominance Hits Fresh Highs as BTC Price Surges

At the time of writing, Bitcoin is trading down nearly 2% at its current price of $10,460, which is down slightly from its recent highs of nearly $10,800 that were set yesterday.

Bitcoins rejection in the upper-$10,000 region makes it abundantly clear that its bulls are not yet ready to propel it past $11,000, but it is important to note that it is still in a firm short-term uptrend, as is it currently trading up significantly from its recent lows of roughly $9,400 that were set last week.

This recent price surge has closely coincided with a rise in BTCs dominance over the markets, as it has risen to 70.5% the highest it has been since March of 2017 before the massive parabolic movement that occurred later that year.

Will a Drop in BTCs Dominance Spark an Altcoin Bull Run?

Most major altcoins have been facing significant downwards pressure as of late, and BTCs rise in dominance is the result of their poor performance.

Importantly, analysts are now noting that there is a decent chance that altcoins are nearing a point at which they begin climbing higher, as FlibFlib a popular crypto analyst on Twitter explained in a recent tweet that Bitcoins dominance will be a primary factor that guides their price action in the near-term.

In USD terms, alts look like they stand a reasonable chance of bounce. $BTC dominance still remains strong and doesnt look like slowing down though Overall bullish, he explained in a recent tweet.

Although it is possible that altcoins could surge in USD terms while not climbing against BTC, without a significant influx of fresh capital into the markets, this is highly unlikely.

That being said, in the short-term it is most probable that any surge in the altcoin markets will require Bitcoin to drop and surrender some of its dominance over the markets.
