It is a bearish Sunday session for the crypto top ten. Bitcoin (BTC) is heading to a sub-$20,000 finish for the first time since July 12. However, ADA leads the top ten into the red, while BNB finds modest support.
There was no crypto news to support a shift in investor sentiment. Market angst from Friday’s Fed Chair Powell speech continued to test investor appetite on Sunday, with the crypto market heading for a third consecutive day in the red.
For investors hoping for a shift in mood, the NASDAQ 100 Mini is down 132 points, suggesting more doom and gloom going into the US session later today. The 132-point fall increased selling pressure across the crypto market in the final hour.
