Yesterday’s Movers and Shakers
Since the previous day, the coin whose price performed the best out of the 134 coins we are observing was DigixDAO, which gave its holders a 10.54% day-over-day return. Other notable currencies were SingularityNET, Horizen, and Mainframe, which experienced daily returns of 6.72%, 4.81%, and 3.4% respectively. The moves in all these coins were a bit surprising, in that they were well outside of the trading range normally associated with each of the currencies in question.

Which Currencies Had Major Price Moves?

Also of note is that 22 of the 134 we track have contracting volatility. Volatility contraction often precedes a breakout, so this may be something to watch.

Is this a technical sign the sellers are exhausted and the market for these coins is ready for a rally?
