A few days of consolidation from BTC price could lead to a healthy bounce from LUNA, NEAR, VET and STEPN
The month of April has been a forgettable one for equities and cryptocurrency investors. Bitcoin (BTC) plummeted 17% in April to record its worst-ever April performance. Similarly, the Nasdaq Composite plunged 13.3% in April, its worst monthly performance since October 2008.
However, a major positive for crypto investors is that Bitcoin is still above its year-to-date low, near $33,000. In comparison, the Nasdaq 100 has hit a new low for 2022, while the S&P 500 is just a whisker away from making a new year-to-date low. This suggests that Bitcoin has managed to avoid a major sell-off, indicating demand at lower levels.
Along with Bitcoin, Ether (ETH) has also managed to sustain well above its year-to-date low. According to cryptocurrency intelligence firm Jarvis Labs, both Ether whales and retail fish have been accumulating at lower levels.
After surviving the onslaught in April, could Bitcoin start a strong recovery and pull altcoins higher? Let’s study the charts of the top-5 cryptocurrencies that may outperform in the near term.
