Cryptos have started off the new week with more declines as Bitcoin is down over 2.5% today and Ethereum has fallen nearly a full percentage point more. For both, those moves drive them deeper into oversold territory, which as we discussed in last Friday’s Crypto Report, is already an extended streak of oversold readings. For Bitcoin, today marks the 17th straight day trading at least one standard deviation below its 50-DMA. While it stands out from all oversold streaks going back to 2014, it is not the longest streak on record or even in recent months. In fact, before a brief stint within neutral territory, Bitcoin traded over one standard deviation below its 50-day for 25 straight days ending May 29th of this year and that followed another 32 day long streak that ended in February.
Although its history is not as long as Bitcoin, Ethereum has been trading in oversold territory for an even more impressive length of time. Today is the 54th oversold day which has far surpassed the previous record of 38 days. To add injury to insult, the prior record streak occurred earlier this year as Ethereum is now trading at a third of the price it was trading at to start the year.
