The Daily Dose: the morning cryptocurrency market update to get you ready for the day ahead.

After starting the week comfortably above $7,000 USD, BTC plunged to the bottom end of its recent range, albeit a fairly wide range in conventional terms. In the last 24 hours most coins have managed to find some footing for the time being. Of the coins on our platform, XRP is leading the pack, up over 2% in the most recent trading session. Shorts continue to control the market and we anticipate this will continue as headline risk around regulation, institutional participation and ongoing ETF proposals act as risk events in today’s current landscape.

Overall flow suggests that BTC should find stability in times of market frenzy. $6,000 remains a crucial support figure and prices are holding well above this level.
