Here’s a summary of what’s been going on in the cryptocurrency market in the past few days. NEM’s XEM led the markets on Sunday while leading financial institutions, Fidelity and Goldman Sachs doubled down on their crypto-related activities. Meanwhile, the majority of the digital assets kept quiet over the weekend.
NEM’s XEM saw a 5 Percent Gain
The top 20 cryptos generally kept quiet over the weekend. NEM’s token, XEM, led the way with its 5 percent gain on Sunday. However, the gains were capped at the lower band of the daily Ichimoku cloud. XEM/USD has been consolidating below the cloud, and the key pivot level of 0.1229 since August 9th, 2018. As the range has narrowed down in the past couple of months, the Ichimoku cloud has also been thinning.
The digital currency needs a renewed bullish sentiment in order to break above the Ichimoku cloud and reach the Fibonacci retracement levels of $0.16 and $0.22. Ranked number 17 on the list, NEM’s market capitalization now stands just a bit under 1 billion dollars.
