Cryptocurrencies are set to finish the week ending 3/22/2019 broadly mixed with the price of Bitcoin (BTC) higher by about 2% over the last 7 days to around USD$4,040. After BTC breached USD$4,000/token earlier in the week, bulls have successfully defended the USD$4,000 psychological support level on several occasions. Bitcoin Cash (BCH) is the best performing top 10 cryptocurrency by market capitalization this week, rallying 12.38% over the last 7 days to USD$159.27. EOS (EOS) lagged major coins this week, falling 1.53% over the last 7 days to USD$3.65.
The most notable piece of cryptocurrency news this week came from CoinMarketCap.com, who announced the launch of two new crypto indices that will be featured on prominent financial data platforms such as Nasdaq Global Index Data Service, Bloomberg Terminal, Thomson Reuters Eikon, and more. Both cryptocurrency indices will be market cap weighted and track the 200 largest cryptocurrencies; the first will include BTC while the second will exclude the benchmark crypto.
