Investing in cryptocurrencies and trading crypto can be risky, due to it still being an experimental financial ecosystem in a borderless market that never sleeps. More than knowing what projects investors should buy, knowing which to avoid can save speculators from accruing huge losses.
With the intent to help investors in their due diligence, Finbold has looked into a few technical analysis (TA) indicators, summed up to fundamental knowledge of some digital assets, to arrive at the list of those that should be avoided for the next week.
Notably, the memecoin Pepe (PEPE) lost over $100 million of its market cap, from the week after Finbold listed it as the first cryptocurrency to avoid trading, on August 28, being priced as low as $0.0000006 on September 21.
The same fundamentals that motivated last month’s listing are still valid to the ‘Pepe the Frog’ token. However, PEPE is among the top gainers of the day by press time, with gains superior to 10% in the last 24 hours and 30% in the last seven days — creating a good opportunity for older holders to apply their exit strategies.
It is possible that PEPE’s price continue to go up in the short term, as the current surge could attract fresh capital, but chances are high that last month’s downtrend continue after the current relief.
Bluzelle (BLZ) presents itself as “a decentralized storage network for the creator economy” and recently its price has been highly affected by DWF Labs’ market-making, according to multiple reports by the analysis platform SpotOnChain. BLZ’s price immediately responds to DWF’s purchases and dumps — which creates higher risks for retail investors.
Moreover, the Relative Strength Index (RSI) from Coinglass also classifies Bluzelle as overbought in a 1-week timeframe. This means that BLZ could see a price correction at any moment, according to this TA indicator alone.
Interestingly, Tron (TRX), THORChain (RUNE), LeverFi (LEVER), and Aragon (ANT) are also set as overbought, and a safer approach to investors could be to also avoid buying them, although it would be necessary to have a deeper analysis considering other factors.
Meanwhile, the token XIN lost over 25% of its value in the last seven days, as investors lost their trust in the project.
Despite the Mixin team stating that losses are actually lower than previously expected, a post on X (formerly Twitter) is still recommending traders and users to don’t use the network, either for transactions or market making. This brings XIN to this list of three cryptocurrencies to avoid buying next week.
