  • The cryptocurrency market woke up from a prolonged period of hibernation.
  • Altcoins show better results, while Bitcoin lags behind.

The cryptocurrency market has come into motion on Monday as Bitcoin and all major altcoins have been slowly recovering from the lower boundaries of the recent consolidation channels. While the upside momentum is still weak, the chances are that we will see the end of the depressing range-bound trading and get some excitement. 

Meanwhile, the global stock markets are on the rise as bullish enthusiasm from China has triggered the upside momentum on the global equities despite lingering concerns about the second wave of COVID-19 and uncertainties about economic recovery. Later during the day, traders will be waiting for the final reading of U.S. services and composite PMIs and ISM non-manufacturing Index for June. Signs of improvement me prove supportive both for stocks and Bitcoin as the correlation between the assets has been on the rise recently.
