"Crypto Markets See Mild Green, Global Stocks and Futures Mixed as Oil Spikes
Monday, April 22 — after yesterday’s mild market teeter, almost all of the top twenty #cryptocurrencies are seeing mild green on the day to press time, seeing growth of between 1 and 7%, as Coin360 data shows.
#Bitcoin (BTC) is up 0.4% on the day and is trading at $5,315 by press time, according to CoinMarketCap. After yesterday’s dip to below $5,260, the top coin has just reclaimed ground above the $5,300 price point — but remains shy of its intra-week high of above $5,350 on April 20. Bitcoin nonetheless remains almost $300 higher than its April 16 dip down to $5,026.
Mild renewed growth has brought Bitcoin’s weekly gains to a solid 2.76%. The largest altcoin by market cap, #ether (ETH), is up a mild 0.8% on the day to trade near $171. The alt has seen a jagged and volatile week — ranging from below $160 on April 16 to almost $177 on April 20. Having recovered from yesterday’s losses, ether is now up by close to 2.3% on the week.
#XRP has reported stronger growth of 1.7% on the day, and is currently trading at around $0.327. The asset’s price movements over the week have not correlated with bitcoin and ether, with XRP seeing an 7-day price high on April 18 at $0.34. After several days of consistent decline, XRP sharply spiked today, and has thus tempered its weekly performance to a 0.4% loss.
The top ten cryptocurrencies are almost uniformly green, with the exception of EOS — which is breaking virtually even, #litecoin (LTC) — down a fractional 0.13%, and #tether (USDT), which has lost 0.2% to cleave more closely to its USD peg.
The strongest top 10 performer is native exchange token binance coin (#BNB ), ranked the seventh largest cryptocurrency, growing 6.76% on the day to trade at $24.65 by press time. #Cardano (ADA) has also seen higher-than-average growth of 3.3%, and is trading at $0.08 to press time.
Widening out to the top twenty, the remaining coins are all green: the highest gainer is #NEO — up 3.6% on the day to trade at $10.86 — followed by #tron (TRZ), up by 2.3% at $0.025.
Most other top 20 coins are seeing gentle gains around 1-2%.
