Cryptocurrency Prices, News and Technical Analysis
- Ethereum collapses further as ICO sellers continue
- US federal judge states US securities laws cover ICO
Cryptomurrency Market in Turmoil  Heavy sales continue unabated in  the cryptocurrency market with E theum and Bi tcoin Cash among the hardest hit and both down by around 10% in the last 24 hours. Ethereum collapsed in the last week, rising from a maximum of $ 282 last Wednesday to a current level of $ 171. The token continues to hit negatively by the sell-off in the ICO market – mostly based on the blockchain ether – which saw the constant sale of ETH. Furthermore, yesterday a US ruling that ICOs are covered by US security laws has added to the negative sentiment. While ICOs will be judged on a case-by-case basis, the decision allows the SEC to exercise criminal proceedings against the dropping companies.
It has become increasingly difficult to find true levels of technical support in a market that has been reorganized and collapsed in such a fast time. The old support levels were easily interrupted and, in most cases, the criptos returned all or most of their rallies between late 2017 and early 2018. We identified some support levels last week – with a deep discount on the place where the tokens were traded – and we have already lowered Ethereum further.
