12th ranked Monero did not record a major pullback as a minor dip of 1.50 percent took its valuation down to $53.15 from $54.67. Its market cap remained under the $1 billion mark, at $972 million, but it registered a below-average trading volume of $146 million, at press time.
The Chaikin Money Flow suggested that capital outflows were slightly outnumbering capital inflows, at press time, as the Parabolic SAR pointed to a bearish period.
