Daily Performances
General Comments: There have been a mix bag of news coming out over the last 24 hours. In general there have been both positive and negative news but for choice the market seems concerned more about the negatives (eg. some exchanges giving in to Japanese regulator pressure). BTC broke below USD6'000 again in extremely light volumes (USD11 billion according to Coinmarketcap in the last 24H). More time will be needed to escape the doldrums and turn the tides.

Technical Analysis - BTC Bitcoin price nursing nominal losses on Friday, heading for a second straight month of declines at around 20%. BTC/USD has been producing lower highs and lower lows, which point to a potential larger move to the downside. The key near-term support is eyed at the 24th June low, around USD5'759

Huobi Pro is Suspending Cryptocurrency Trading for Users in JapanA lack of registration with the country’s financial regulator will see cryptocurrency exchange Huobi Pro suspend services to users in Japan next month.
Daily Performances
General Comments: Most of the top ten coins are seeing a mild recovery. EOS and IOTA have seen the largest gains, respectively trading up 6.08 and 4.34% over the 24h. Total market cap is around USD247 billion, up almost 6% from this week’s low on June 24 of USD235 billion.However, the reverse ban on crypto advertisement by Facebook had no impact on the cryptocurrency markets in any way in the short-term. Unless the volume of major digital assets spike up in the next 24 to 48 hours, it is unlikely that the market initiates a large corrective rally and loses more value in the short-term.

Weekly Top 5 Price comparison
- BTC . - ETH . - XRP . - BCH . - EOS
Technical Analysis - BTC
Bitcoin price is under pressure below USD6'200 against the US Dollar. BTC/USD must stay above the USD6'000 support to avoid further losses in the near term.

Technical Analysis - BTC
BTCUSD price dropped to 6000 to reflect the return in selling pressure and a stronger downside momentum. The price recovered from early losses reached at USD6'006, but still in the red zone on daily basis. The local support is created by USD16'137, followed by USD6'194. On the downside, USD6'000 serves as a critical support, followed by Sunday's low at USD5'777.
Daily Performances
General Comments: Most coins are in red again as the recovery momentum proved to be too weak to take prices above critical resistance levels. While no one knows for sure when this bear market hit the bottom, ceteris paribus, we will continue hitting new lows for the foreseeable future. Bitcoin is changing hands at USD6'080, down 2.4% on daily basis.

Daily Performances
General Comments: As Bitcoin bounced back after crashing below USD6,000 at the end of the previous week, some crypto bulls come out with optimistic views. Crypto bulls struggle to calm down speculative panic on the market by reminding traders and investors that Bitcoin has a history of deep corrections and even downside trends, but in the longer-term perspective it is still a viable investment and revolutionary concept.

Weekly Top 5 Price comparison
- BTC . - ETH . - XRP . - BCH . - EOS
Technical Analysis - BTC
BTC is changing hands at USD6,246, off Monday's high reached at USD6,300, but still in the green zone on daily basis. Once USD6,300 handle is cleared, the ultimate resistance of USD6,400 with come into focus. A sustainable break higher is vital for extended recovery.

ICO incubators are kickstarting the future of cryptocurrencyGlobal Blockchain Technologies Corp. (TSXV:BLOC.V, OTC:BLKCF) and others like it are helping new ICOs succeed with its ICO incubator.
Daily Performances
With BTC traversing below the psychological USD6'000 level and temporarily breaching USD5'800, this consummates the USD5'000 to USD20'000 round trip since the rally starting November of 2017. The market has since recovered above 6'000 but the recent price action can be described as a slow motion bleed out in thin volumes and a lack of large participation. There have been a multitude of news catalysts, mostly negative, that could have caused this such as continued exchange hacks, regulatory tightening, and most recently negative price action from the much hyped EOS. As can be seen from extremely low option implied vols, none of the recent moves indicate any level of panic. As we approach summer it is possible we see a prolonged period of doldrums, but external geopolitical and economic factors could be a catalyst for a turn in the market.

Technical Analysis - BTC
We saw a big reversal on Sunday, a lot of it seemed to be fuelled via short covering on BitMEX, where we saw sizeable short liquidations and a marked decrease in open interest on the swap. At the moment the movement remains a short term bounce and we remain in a downtrend on the daily chart, a close above 6'800 would change our bearish view and turn it into bullish.
