Kraken Daily Market Report for July 27 2020

Overview


  • Total trading volume at $631.0 million – largest single trading volume day since May 7th ($761.7 million). This puts the weekly trading volume at double of last week, and moves the 30-day average to 2% higher than last month.
  • The large trading activity was a result of Bitcoin bolting through $10,000 to $11,000 in a span of about 20 hours. XBT/USD closed the day up 11% and had returns over USD and EUR during the day as high as 14%.
  • Bitcoin’s impressive rise is extra interesting as the crypto markets were polarized against USD. Some cryptos such as Litecoin (+11%), Bitcoin Cash (+8.5%), and Zcash (+6.0%) had a great day, but some others, such as Compound (-14%), Kava (-11%), and Algorand (-10%) did not.

Trading Volume by Asset


The figures below break down the trading volume of the largest, mid-size, and smallest assets. Cryptos are in purple, fiats are in blue. For each asset, the chart contains the daily trading volume in USD, and the percentage of the total trading volume. The percentages for fiats and cryptos are treated separately, so that they both add up to 100%.

Figure 1: Largest trading assets: trading volume (measured in USD) and its percentage of the total trading volume (July 27 2020)



Figure 2: Mid-size trading assets: (measured in USD) (July 27 2020)



Figure 3: Smallest trading assets: (measured in USD) (July 27 2020)



#####################. Spread %. ##########################################

Spread %


Spread percentage is the width of the bid/ask spread divided by the bid/ask midpoint. The values are generated by taking the median spread percentage over each minute, then the average of the medians over the day.
