Price Analysis 5/9: BTC, ETH, BNB, XRP, SOL.

More  selloffs were seen over the last six days as BTC dipped to levels not seen over the last three months. The market could be considered bearish as most cryptocurrencies have lost their pivot points and are retesting levels not seen in a while.

Seeing $1.57 trillion for the first time in more than two months, the crypto market is no doubt losing a lot of momentum. It opened the week at $1.7 trillion, but lost almost 10%, hence the most recent dip.

While most traders are shocked at the most recent state of the market, many others have decided to close their positions and sell off their bags. Were fundamentals to be blamed for the latest?

The Bulls Won on a Narrative Front

The last seven days were filled with a lot of bullish news. One such is the news is that of Uzbeskitan, encouraging Bitcoin mining in its territory. The country’s administration has made it tax-free to mine using solar energy.

In other stories, Google has disclosed that its Cloud unit is putting together a team that will build services for blockchain developers creating Web3 applications. Based on all these happenings, we may conclude that the bulls were victorious on the narrative front.

However, the Fear and Greed Index suggests that traders are still in extreme fear, which may delay any major uptrends. This situation is further illustrated in the chart below.
