Cloudy trading conditions ahead for the global crypto market in the next 24 hours, indicating a slightly bearish market with downside risk. Uniswap and Chainlink buck this negative trend and have some upside potential, ATTMO shows.
Over a one-week horizon, tropical trading conditions will prevail over Bitcoin. This translates into a very bullish market. Other altcoins, including Ethereum, Cardano, Binance Coin and Dogecoin will also see a bullish sun shining over them, signaling upside potential.
However, Litecoin, Ripple’s XRP and Avalanche will face bearish clouds over this longer time horizon, showing downside risk ahead.
The cryptocurrency trend was negative over the past 24 hours after a stellar performance over the past couple of weeks.
The price of Bitcoin dropped 1.8 percent over the past 24 hours, trading around 34,500 US dollars, while the price of Ether shed 2.1 percent. The two largest cryptocurrencies have risen 26 percent and 9.8 percent respectively over the past months.
MicroStrategy, the listed company with the largest Bitcoin holding, raised its holding to 158,400 Bitcoins during the third quarter. “You can never have too much Bitcoin. We are big Bitcoin bulls. Our thesis is that they are digital property without the risks and liabilities of commercial real estate, of big tech,” the company’s founder and executive chairman, Michael Saylor, told CNBC.
Fidelity’s Director of Global Macro, Jurrien Timmer, echoed his views and wrote he views Bitcoin as “a commodity currency that aspires to be a store of value and a hedge against monetary debasement. I think of it as exponential gold.”
“Bitcoin is volatile, but its scarcity and adoption curve create the potential for it to be a high-powered hedge against monetary shenanigans. I think of it as exponential gold,” Timmer added.

Dubai has been Ripple’s headquarters in the Middle East since 2020 due to its innovation-friendly regulations and status as a financial hub in the region. A fifth of Ripple’s clients are based in the region.
