VeChain At Risk Of Further Losses? VET Price Drops 30% In Downtrend

The crypto market continues on its downtrend, and VeChain (VET) follows after expiring some relief over the last weekend. The cryptocurrency recently breached a major level of support and seems poised to expand its downside price action. Related Reading | Fed Announces Inflation Warnings As Bitcoin Whales Remain In Wait Mode At the time of writing, VET’s price trades at $0.022 with a 3% and 32% loss over the last 24 hours and the past month respectively. According to crypto analyst Justin Bennett, VeChain lost a major area of support when it broke below $0.024. As seen below, this area was the last line of resistance for a “neckline” or a trendline that saw VET’s price after an increase in previous selling pressure. Not everything is lost for the bulls, the analyst believes, as long as VeChain is capable of holding above $0.021. This area is a “much more significant support for the market”. In case of further downside action, VET’s price could drop into this support line before seeing some relief. If the price manages to get back above the neckline, it could support a bullish continuation. However, traders should wait for confirmation if VET’s price can return to $0.024 and then to $0.026. Beyond that point, $0.028 seems like a very important area of resistance. Bennett believes it seems more possible that VeChain will continue on its downtrend: Resistance for VET is around $0.0237, which is the neckline it broke below yesterday. All in all, the market looks relatively weak. So even if we do see some additional relief, I think a move to at least $0.016 makes the most sense right now. Traders should watch out for a daily close below current levels or $0.022. This could hint at potential losses targeting the levels mentioned by the analyst. What Could Save VeChain In The Long Run? As NewsBTC reported, VeChain is currently in the process of deploying a major consensus update. This could facilitate the corporate adoption of the blockchain VeChainThor and inject fresh capital into the ecosystem. However, this will positively impact VET’s price over the long run. In the short term, Bennett claims the current macro conditions don’t support bullish momentum in the crypto market. The analyst recently pointed out a “Head and Shoulders” pattern formed on the crypto market total capitalization 4-hour chart.

The total crypto market cap currently stands above $800 billion and could crash into the $700 billion if the pattern plays out. Any long positions, at current levels, seem at risk, as Bennett explained: $TOTAL is a perfect example of how to use a failed head and shoulders to your advantage. That failure offered a short opportunity. I never thought to long this because of the established downtrend. I was always expecting it to fail.

Extreme Fear Remains: Recapping What’s Behind The Crypto Market Panic

The current streak of extreme fear is already the longest ever in crypto history, and it’s continuing on still. Here’s a recap of the major events responsible for this bottom sentiment. Crypto Fear And Greed Index Continues To Point At “Extreme Fear” The “fear and greed index” is an indicator that tells us about the general market sentiment among crypto investors. The metric uses a numeric scale that runs from zero to hundred for representing this sentiment. All values below the fifty mark imply a fearful market, while those above the threshold mean investors are greedy right now. End values of above 75 and below 25 indicate extreme sentiments of “extreme greed” and “extreme fear,” respectively. Now, here is a chart from the latest weekly report from Arcane Research, that shows the trend in the crypto fear and greed index over the past year: Looks like the value of the indicator has been very low in recent weeks | Source: Arcane Research’s The Weekly Update – Week 25, 2022 As you can see in the above graph, the current value of the crypto fear and greed index is 10, which suggests the market is extremely fearful at the moment. This run of extreme fear has been going on since more than two months now, and it’s the longest ever such streak in the history of the metric. Related Reading | What Is Bitcoin CFD and How Can It Make You a Profit Even before this latest run of extreme fear, the market sentiment wasn’t particularly well during the rest of 2022. However, it wasn’t still quite as rock bottom as the current streak. So, what’s behind this historically low sentiment? There are a number of market conditions that have lead to it and that are continuing to keep it so. The first event of note is the UST collapse in May. A large stablecoin like Tether USD losing its peg put fear and uncertainty into many investors in the market. Another is the looming macro uncertainties over the market like the possibility of FED hiking rates and the various governments around the world tightening regulations. Related Reading | Bitcoin “Reserve Risk” Metric Approaches All-Time Lows These above factors snowballed into a bottom sentiment and lead to larger consequences over the entire crypto market in the form of the crash. A byproduct of the latest crash was the collapse of Three Arrows Capital (3AC), a cryptocurrency hedge fund. Another was the lender company Celsius halting withdrawals and potentially heading towards bankruptcy. Such negative news is keeping the fear and greed index from recovering from these historic lows. Like a vicious cycle, bad news is leading to more bad news and further fueling the extreme fear sentiment.
