Weekly Digest: Chung’s Picks of the Week (28/11)

Crypto market goes on a Black Friday special as extreme fear hits the market.

Markets Held at Ransom

Markets around the world fell as coronavirus continues to wreak havoc. Dow Jones Industrial Average (DOW) fell by 905 points pulling the crypto market along with it. Bitcoin fell from $59,000 to $53,355 on Thursday for an early Black Friday sale. This came amidst news of a new covid-19 variant named ‘Omicron’ that is highly transmissible. At the time of writing Bitcoin is trading at $54,714. 

The market is in a state of fear, reminiscent of the March 2020 crash where Bitcoin lost more than half of its value in two days on news of the Covid-19 outbreak. Will Clemente, an on-chain analyst believes that if the $53,000 bull market support band for Bitcoin is broken, the crypto market may turn bearish.
