Biggest Crypto Gainers Today on DEXTools – BUGMAN, Xpro, PAW
After a strong Sunday rally that carried into Monday morning and saw the BTC price hit new one-month highs in the $28,600s, Bitcoin (BTC) is consolidating just under $28,000 and at lows for the day.
Traders attributed Sunday’s rally to optimism about the fact that October is usually a good month for Bitcoin, and amid recent Ether (ETH) futures ETF debuts on major traditional asset exchanges.
But macro remains a headwind, with US 10-year yields hitting new multi-decade highs at 4.70% on Monday amid strong US data (ISM Manufacturing PMI) that further strengthened the argument that the US economy won’t be in recession anytime soon, and that the Fed will subsequently leave interest rates at elevated levels for a prolonged period of time.
Whether Bitcoin can get back above $28,000 this week will be a key question for traders as this roughly aligns with its 200DMA.
Another rejection could be a strong sign that the downtrend in place since July is yet to end.
And if Monday’s data is anything to go by, further macro headwinds could be in store.
The main data points to watch this week are US JOLTS Job Openings, US ADP National Employment Change and official US labor market figures, as well as the US ISM Services PMI report.
As major cryptocurrencies struggle to break above key resistance levels, traders will continue to turn to shitcoin/meme coin markets in the hunt for volatility.

Crypto Alternatives to Consider
Shitcoins are very risky, given most have no real value proposition.
For those looking for an even better probability of near-term gains, an alternative high-risk-high-reward investment strategy to consider is getting involved in crypto presales.
This is where investors buy the tokens of up-start crypto projects to help fund their development.
These tokens are nearly always sold cheaply, and there is a long history of presales delivering huge exponential gains to early investors.
Many of these projects have fantastic teams behind them and a great vision to deliver a revolutionary crypto application/platform.
If an investor can identify such projects, the risk/reward of their presale investment is very good.
The team at Cryptonews spends a lot of time combing through presale projects to help investors out.
