HODLers will take over market soon

Crypto trading volumes are dropping
Volumes in crypto market are dropping, indicating an alarming situation. Crypto market started this year on a good note but later on crashed to low levels, apart from Ethereum, all other major crypto currencies are down for 2018, but one of the most alarming situations in this matter is that trading volumes on different exchanges are dropping to lowest levels in recent months.
For example, on Bitfinex current trading volume of Bitcoin is at around 25000 which at one point of time was as high as 160000 , which means this volume is not even 20% of its peak volume. Similarly in the case of Ripple, current trading volume is 8 Million which at one point of time was 50 million, so there is an alarming situation in that regards because not only price is dropping but crypto trading volume is also dropping dramatically.
Lack of interest?
One of the key questions that analysts are asking these days is that, is it lack of interest from investors that volumes are so low? may be they have found new investment opportunity in the form of S&P 500 and Gold. Most of the analyst think that this low activity is due to the reason that market speculators are currently out of the market and in wait and watch situation to make an entry point.
Calm before the storm?
Such low volumes and price movement in a tight range suggest that this is the calm before the storm, many regulatory authorities around the world are trying to stop crypto trading by either putting complete ban or by introducing tight laws, so speculators and institutional investors are just waiting for a clear picture so that they can make their bet on it, but one thing is for sure that sooner or later market is due for heavy movement in either direction, so day traders need to watch out.
