Fakeout: Crypto Market Pulls Back Sharply as Bitcoin (BTC) Drops to $3,800


The crypto market has dropped-off in Sunday trading on a sudden reversal to end an exceptionally bullish week.

Now, despite surging to a new 2019 high on Saturday, Bitcoin (BTC) has dropped over 7% to just above $3,800. Interestingly, this price action all occurred over the course of two hours, with the majority of losses coming in the first 30 minutes.

For the time being, it looks as if $3,800 could act as support for the market’s largest cryptocurrency.

The pull-back has affected the entire market, dragging multiple altcoins down over 10%. The AltDex 100 Index (ALT100), a benchmark index for the 100-largest coins and tokens not including stablecoins, is currently down 8.9% on the day.
