Apex cryptocurrency Bitcoin is trading lower by 41% to $28,554 on a year-to-date basis. The world’s most popular digital currency is trading off its 200-day simple moving average (SMA) of $45,040 by 37%.
For the uninitiated, the 200-day SMA serves as a way for traders and investors to identify whether a crypto or equity is in a bull or bear market.
The SMA ranks as one of the easiest-to-compute technical indicators. This popular indicator smooths out price data and can help you better identify market trends.
The SMA can even provide objective signals that can assist you in selecting market entry and exit points as a trader or investor.
Ethereum is trading lower by 60% on a year-to-date basis at $1543. Ethereum is off its 200-day SMA of $3,236 by roughly 45%. Ethereum last saw the $1,500 price level or below in February 2021.
Dogecoin has fallen around 60% from $0.17 to $0.0706 since the beginning of the year. Dogecoin is off its 200-day SMA of $0.169 by around 60%.
