Crypto Markets Down Slightly To End A Wild Trading Year

Investing, News | December 31, 2018 By:

It’s somewhat fitting that a down year for the cryptocurrency market is ending on a low note. Today’s prices showed red arrows all around, with the only good news being that the moderate trading volume didn’t result in a wild plunge. Perhaps that leaves hope for a good upside to come.

Bitcoin sat at $3,800 after some brief forays into the $4,000 range. Volume was surprisingly high on a day filled with distractions, indicating that we may see some interesting surges when everyone gets back to business following the new year celebration.

Trading was down about one to nearly three percent for most of the top ten. Of note is ether holding on to its recent gains, now sitting at $137.
