The brief recoil in the market was, however, not unique to Bitcoin, tokens recorded good gains as well. The bulls in the entire market have shown that they can break from the stability resulting in the cryptocurrency market adding $3 billion to $206 billion. Bitcoin (BTC) trading volume has increased significantly from $3 billion to $4.2 billion. Most of the assets are trading in the green with tokens like Pundi X, WaltonChain, Status and Loom recording the highest gains.

The low trading volume signifies lack of enough trading activity in the market. This means the impeding trend is bearish. Analysts like Hsaka have in the recent past predicted declins in Bitcoin price due to the low trading volumes and activity. If the low volumes continue, Bitcoin is likely to close the year in the current bear range ($6,300 -6,800). Hsaka explained:

“To be honest, with volume and volatility petering out, I wouldn’t be surprised to see BTC hold this range for another month (and maybe till the EOY too). Would be the path of maximum pain, bears don’t get their rapid selloff to 4.8k, bulls distraught over not being able to break 6.8k.”
