Thanksgiving holidays saw trading volumes maintaining their downtrends. That left the broad cryptocurrency market to experience sideways. The wait-and-see approach by investors before Monday’s FTX updates contributed to the low trading volumes.
Meantime, there weren’t FTX updates nor NASDAQ cues to offer market direction. Nevertheless, uncertainty over FTX’s downward extent had market participants on the sidelines. The cryptocurrency space remains primed for another steep fall due to FTX’s contagion.
Nevertheless, FTX’s assets, including the $1.24B cash reserve, which delivered the $16K support for BTC, will prevent the slump.
