The crypto market’s heatmap

The crypto heatmap shows that Bitcoin alone is down by around 8%, and Ethereum has slid downwards by more than 10% in the last 24 hours, with the market almost entirely red.

As expected, the crypto market's liquidations have been especially brutal in the last 24 hours, with more than half a billion dollars lost to liquidations.

The crypto liquidation heatmap

The snapshot above shows that leveraged traders collectively lost around $678 million to liquidations in the last 24 hours, with the bulls carrying a staggering $587 million, compared to the bears' $90 million.

Considering all of the above, the crypto market is under bearish control at the time of this writing.

The Freefall on Bitcoin Continues

As shown above, Bitcoin eventually broke below the $56,000 price level sometime in the last 24 hours and is currently in the middle of a freefall as shown below:

Bitcoin’s price action

As shown above, a descending trendline can be drawn on Bitcoin's daily chart, indicating that the cryptocurrency might rebound from the $54,000 zone.

However, if the bulls lose control of things again at this price level, Bitcoin could continue declining and hit the $50,500 price level again.

In sum, traders should keep an eye out for what happens around $54,000 for signs of a rebound or a drop further down to $50,500.

When Will Ethereum Rebound?

As shown in the snapshot below, Ethereum lost its standing above the ascending trendline and has declined by more than 10% over the last 24 hours.

Ethereum’s price action

The charts show that Ethereum is now testing support around the $2,870 zone, which was last tested in May.

Ethereum is sitting at a critical juncture at this point and cannot afford to fall further.

If the bulls successfully push the cryptocurrency lower at this point, the resulting drop is devastating, leading the cryptocurrency further down towards the $2,500 zone.

The Recovery Has Begun on $CREAM.

According to the charts, while most of the other cryptocurrencies continue to struggle with the bearish influence over the last day, Cream Finance appears to have launched its own recovery as shown.

Cream Finance in the charts

The cryptocurrency has rebounded off the $40.3 price level and is now making its way upwards, with a 24-hour price increase of around 6%.

Can Cream Finance continue further down from here? Absolutely.

However, suppose this happens to be a valid recovery for cryptocurrency. In that case, traders might find a good entry opportunity from here, as indicated by the bullish crossover in the cryptocurrency's daily RSI.

Something Interesting on Enzyme (MLN)

As shown by the charts, Enzyme, for some reason, has been unaffected by the ongoing market decline:

Enzyme’s price action

Prior to the market slump between Thursday and Friday, the cryptocurrency had already launched its own recovery phase after crashing to the $15.81 price level.

As it stands, Enzyme is one of the only bullish cryptocurrencies on the market at present and should remain so long as the price doesn't break below $15.9.
