Bitcoin Price Could Form Major Bearish Pattern, According to Trading Legend Peter Brandt

Cosmos and Matic save the day

At the time of writing Cosmos (ATOM) is a lone green spot in this crypto market bloodshed. The token managed to stay above the fray with a tiny 0.68 percent increase over the last 24 hours. Prominent trader "Crypto Dog" says that ATOM could bounce hard once Bitcoin calms down. The top cryptocurrency is inching closer to its titanium support that persisted throughout the 2018 bear market. 

Matic (MATIC), which made headlines because of its amazing returns earlier this year, is up by more than eight percent over the last 24 hours, the third best-performing coin inside the top 100 after Fusion (FSN) and Streamr DATAcoin (DATA).

Meanwhile, XRP is currently trading at its lowest level since November 2017.
