The cryptocurrency market’s bear run does not look to have ended, with many cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin [BTC], Ethereum [ETH] and Monero [XMR] all seeing red across the charts. Monero [XMR] was also in the news recently when Nouriel Roubini stated that the cryptocurrency will be “cracked down by the Feds” soon.

The recent uptrend also saw the prices rise from $103.067 to $105.723. The cryptocurrency’s support was holding at $102.969 while the resistance has been maintained at  $114.430.

The Awesome Oscillator shows the market momentum reducing from its previous rates, which may be linked to the change in investor sentiments.

The MACD indicator points to multiple crossovers, with the signal line and the MACD line almost moving in tandem towards the bear zone. The MACD histogram has also been predominantly bearish.
