What Changed in Crypto Markets While You Were Sleeping — April 28

BeInCrypto presents our daily morning roundup of crypto news and market changes that you might have missed while you were asleep.

Bitcoin update

Bitcoin (BTC) has resumed the bounce from April 26. The bounce began at a confluence of Fib support levels between $46,900-$47,725. The area is created by the 0.5 long-term Fib (orange) and 0.786 short-term Fib (black).

So far, it has reached a local high of $55,738.

An interesting development is the bullish reversal signal in the MACD.

Despite this, the RSI and Stochastic oscillator are still bearish.

Altcoin movers

The cryptocurrency top-10 rankings have remained mostly unchanged today. However, Dogecoin (DOGE) is close to overtaking Cardano’s (ADA) #6 spot. DOGE is now only $3 billion short of overtaking ADA after a 7% pump this morning.

Bitcoin Cash (BCH) is also continuing to close in on Litecoin (LTC) to rejoin the top-10. At the time of press, BCH was a little over $500 million away from overtaking LTC.

Polygon (MATIC) is today’s biggest altcoin mover. It managed to reach a new all-time high at $0.90 today but has since corrected back to $0.73. MATIC is currently holding the #37 rank. It’s up 29% on the day and has seen a massive 118% gain on the week.

DENT is the day’s biggest loser. After enjoying a 26% pump yesterday, DENT has fallen back under $0.011, losing 14% so far today.
