News recap: bullish signals from stablecoins

The aggregate market capitalisation of stablecoins is growing, historically signalling a bullish trend. November ended with nearly a 9% increase for bitcoin and a 10.9% rise for the entire crypto market. Read the News recap to learn about the most important events in the crypto world between 15th-30th November.

Crypto market in numbers

The cryptocurrency market capitalisation has predictably corrected, dropping by 1.3% to $1.42 trillion since 15th November. Notably, altcoins led the correction. The market is awaiting a fundamental push.

Trading activity remained high, with daily volumes ranging between $50 – $60 billion since 15th November, occasionally dipping below $40 billion. November has been the best month, in terms of trading volumes since March 2023.

The cryptocurrency Fear and Greed Index remains in the “Greed” zone, increasing by 23.3% to 74 points since 15th November. Market participants’ sentiments suggest a slightly overheated market.

Cryptocurrency volatility has noticeably decreased. The 30-day volatility index for BTC has dropped by 43.6%, from 2.11% to 1.19% since 15th November. A similar metric for ETH decreased by 7.9%, from 2.13% to 1.96%.

Crypto assets found their “resistances.” Despite this, bitcoin reached another yearly high, finally surpassing $38,000. However, it failed to sustain above this level. There were no subsequent short squeezes and liquidity remains high. The market is still anticipating the approval of spot bitcoin ETFs in the near future, preventing cryptocurrencies from undergoing deeper corrections.

November ended with nearly a 9% increase for bitcoin and a 10.9% rise for the entire crypto market. Digital assets have been growing for three consecutive months. Mid-term traders should exercise caution and be mindful of risks. The upcoming month will be ambiguous – over the past 10 years, cryptocurrencies have experienced price declines in December in 60% of cases.
