Crypto markets have pumped to a new 2019 high; Ontology, Ethereum and EOS are flying, Binance Coin slowing down.
Contrary to predictions crypto markets have not pulled back and have actually gathered momentum and made further gains today. The big cap cryptos have broken key resistance levels and things are looking positive at the moment as total market capitalization reaches a new 2019 high at over $140 billion.

The move represents a 5% gain on the day as volume cranked up to over $9 billion. BTC has now reached the crucial 200MA and another upside break through this would be very bullish.

Bitcoin Cash has added 9% to pull it back over $150 again and Litecoin keeps moving with another 7% added during today’s Asian trading session. Binance Coin as usual has done the opposite and remained lethargic with no real gains during this rally.
