Between 5 and 12 May 2022, Bitcoin fell by over $13,000, i.e. over 33%. It increased Bitcoin depreciation which started on 28 March, to over $21,000, i.e. 44%. In turn, counting from the peaks of November 2021, BTC decreased by over $42,000, i.e. 61%.
Such a significant sale caused the exchange of the oldest virtual currency to drop from $69,000 to below $27,000, which was the lowest level since December 2020.
It is noteworthy that this trend did not stop around the critical level of support of $29,000, where various types of demand reactions have occurred many times in the past.
However, considering that the demand reaction that appeared last weekend was much more modest than the previous ones around this support, it seems highly probable that it will be only a temporary correction, after which the BTC rate will return to losing value.

If this sell-off leads to a sustained drop below $24,000, we will have to prepare for a further depreciation towards $24,000 or even below $20,000.
The current situation on the Ethereum quotes is also identical.
The price of this cryptocurrency fell between 3 April and 12 May this year by 52%, dropping to the Tech Support area of $1,750, the lowest level since July 2021.
The demand reaction that appeared last weekend was much more modest than the rebound observed in this region in May, June and July 2021. We assume that it will be only a correction, after which ETH will return to around $1,750.
A permanent drop below this price level could open the door for further declines to $1,400 — around this price is another significant support around which we could expect a greater demand response.
Solana (SOL) Loses Ca. 77%
Looking at the Solana quotes, we notice that the price of this cryptocurrency fell between 2 April and 12 May this year by almost 77%, dropping to the area of technical support of $37, which was the lowest level since August 2021.

In the second half of last week, the demand reaction appeared. Although it could signal a potential rebound towards the previously defeated support (now resistance) of $78, taking into account the general pessimism currently observed in the broad cryptocurrency market, it seems that the increases can end much earlier. The SOL rate could return to around $37 or even fall below this support if this happens. It would indicate a potential for further depreciation towards $23.
The current situation on the Cardano quotes is also very interesting.
The price fell between 4 April and 12 May this year by 69%, dropping to the area of technical support of $0.40, which was the lowest level since the beginning of February 2021.
It is where the demand response appeared, and if the several-day increases continued, the ADA rate could even return to the area of previously defeated support (now resistance) of $0.75.
However, there are many indications that this rebound will ultimately turn out to be only a correction, after which Cardano’s quotations will return to the area of $0.40, or they will drop even lower.
