It is a mixed Saturday session for the crypto top ten. DOGE leads the way, while XRP hits reverse as investors lock in profits from a bullish week. BTC fell short of $20,000 for a sixth consecutive session and faces the prospect of ending the day at sub-$19,000 for the third time this week.
There were no crypto news stories to test investor sentiment, leaving investors to take profit before the start of a new week. After decoupling from the NASDAQ 100 on Thursday and Friday, the final hour (UTC) of today’s session could dictate the influence of the NASDAQ 100 in the week ahead.
A recoupling with the NASDAQ 100 Mini would put the US economic calendar back in focus.
